I am a great fan of Vivek. Rajini nor Kamal never appeals to me like Vivek. He has not left a field untouched. In the movie “Run” he would be admitted to a big hospital for headache. The doctor who is a kidney stealer will be palpating his abdomen. Vivek will ask “Doctor did you give money and pass MBBS. When I come with head ache you are pressing my stomach”….
Vivek should get well soon and I believe he will.
Ironically the same vaccine that he was promoting 24 hrs earlier, I believe is the cause for his medical emergency. Is it causative? Definitely yes. OK Ravi. Can you explain how?
As a MD, Biochemistry aspirant, here is what I believe happened.
We all know this virus kills by two means.
- Direct cell necrosis by hijacking the protein synthesis apparatus.
- Auto immune reaction, by the T-Cells and antibodies activated against this virus.
In both cases the binding molecule is the ACE receptor that is present everywhere in all tissues, alveolar epithelium to tunica Intima.
This is what I believe has happened. Vivek was vaccinated by 2:00PM of Thursday the 15th April. The spike protein elicited a strong antibody reaction within 24 hrs, and this I believe was because he was already exposed to a subclinical COVID infection many months ago. In 5 out of 100 patients this antibody is auto immune in nature. It bound with the ACE receptors in the arteries and prepared them for phagocytosis by B lymphocyte. This resulted in disseminated arteritis. The coronary artery circulation was the first to get compromised resulting in a ischemic cardiac arrest in a matter of minutes. I pray there is no irreversible myocardial damage and no allied ischemic damage to the sensitive brain nor any autoimmune damage to the alveoli and my Star recovers fast. This is my belief.
Going forward, what would I do if I were the advisor to the US or UK health secretary (not India because I don’t have good opinion of any of the Deans in the major medical colleges in TN)
This vaccine, elicits a strong antibody reaction. Good. I would use it as a test tool, (like diluted Penicillin for penicillin anaphylaxis) rather than as a vaccine. I would inject a very diluted vaccine sub-cutaneously and look for a reaction by 24 hours. If there is no reaction I would then test the antibody status for Corona. If it is
- Positive: The individual is safe from auto immune events from Corona. He needs no further attention and no vaccination.
- Negative: Nothing is concluded about his auto immune predisposition. He has to continue to safeguard from exposures
If there is a reaction, then the individual is the 5 in 100 who is auto immune to Corona. If it were Western medicine they would put him on chronic Immuno suppressants and chronic anti virals. Clinicians like Erode will target preventive medicine, which I also strongly believe. These patients are susceptible to auto immune disorder and whether it is exposure to the natural infection or a vaccine, it is certain disease with high mortality.
So vaccines have no benefit as vaccines, but can be a tool in identifying susceptible patients. The war against COVID will be in segregation of these susceptible patients and safe guarding them.
So my take away: Rather than getting vaccinated, determine where you are the 5 in 100 who are autoimmune prone to Corona
