 Why are some people susceptible to infection? Risk of new crown infection or related to blood group

The New England Journal of medicine invited Professor He ximiao from Tongji Medical College of Huazhong University of science and technology to write a review.

He ximiao believes that this study is helpful to systematically study the influence of genetic factors on the susceptibility and severity of new coronavirus. First of all, this study found the potential genetic susceptibility genes of respiratory failure caused by new coronavirus. Secondly, two independent studies have confirmed that type a blood is more susceptible to new coronavirus than other blood types, while type O blood has a certain protective effect.

However, it is also pointed out that the specific molecular pathological mechanism of ABO blood group system affecting the severity of new coronavirus is not clear, which needs to be further clarified.

Novel coronavirus pneumonia is not related to the severity of infection in the new blood, but Li Dongceng has no relationship with the severity of the infection, said Li Dongceng, deputy director of the Department of infectious diseases, who was in charge of the health times.

Health Times reporter search found that in order to study whether the patients own genetic factors have an impact on the severity of the disease, scientists from all over the world have jointly launched the covid-19 host genetics initiative. Currently, there are 138 registered projects in the world, including the million people precision medicine program allofus of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) The search for a genetic predisposition to covid-19 has also been added.
