Over the next 10 days or so we will be hearing from some of the leading experts in their fields on the things we need to clear the air (and noise) on in Canada.
People need to make educated decisions now more than ever. Hearing from these professionals over the next few days may save lives, agree or disagree is your choice but we do encourage everyone to listen. \n\nToday we lead off this series with Dr Steven Pelech.
Dr Pelech is a Ph.D. President & Chief Scientific Officer at Kinexus Bioinformatics, Professor, Division of Neurology, Department of Medicine, University of British Columbia, Senate Representative for Faculty of Graduate and Post-doctoral Studies.
He is joining us because he has some general thoughts about why more younger people are appearing in hospitals with COVID-19, and why he has concerns about vaccinating younger people with what are still experimental vaccines, in which we do not know about long term efficacy or adverse reactions, such as the development of autoimmunity.
His research has focused on the identification of the parts of the virus that people make antibodies against. To that end, in his lab he has developed a highly accurate and sensitive test for determining if a person has been infected with the virus or has developed antibodies from vaccination.
To his surprise, he has tested hundreds of people in B.C. now, and finds that most of these healthy people already have antibodies that recognize these proteins. He has started testing people that have been vaccinated, and some of these individuals don’t have antibodies against the spike protein of the virus. We have also been studying the mechanism by which it is able to replicate in infected cells, which has identified some promising new strategies to treat patients.
