The results of a new scientific study reveal a link between infection and elevated levels of a type of immune substance called NET- neutrophil extracellular traps, which are a network of fibers made from the genetic code of white blood cells and some proteins. To fight infection in the body.

In this study, which was published in the scientific journal ( ) it was found that sometimes these cells may work in reverse in the body, meaning that they may cause more harm than good.

In order to reach these results, researchers studied 84 blood samples taken from 50 people hospitalized with the emerging coronavirus.

After studying these samples, the researchers noticed that the level of these substances was high in the blood of the injured. Then the researchers compared samples of patients who required the use of a respiratory system with those who had a lower severity.

The researchers were able to find clear differences between these samples, as the proportion of these immune substances in the blood of patients who needed was much higher compared to others, which may indicate a relationship between the high proportion of these immune substances and the severity of the disease.

Finally, the researchers emphasized the need for deeper studies on this topic in order to confirm this relationship.
