Australian researchers have published the first study on the immune response to coronavirus, while human vaccine trials have begun.

With more than 177,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) worldwide, and more than 7000 deaths at the time of publication, the medical community has welcomed a study from Australian researchers, brings scientists one step closer to understanding the virus and is the body’s immune response ,

A team of researchers at the Peter Doherty Institute of Infection and Immunity analyzed four samples of blood taken from a patient was first diagnosed with COVID-19. Aged woman in her 40s was admitted to hospital in Melbourne after a trip to Wuhan, China. symptoms include lethargy, sore throat, dry cough and fever. He was healthy.

The study, published in the Tuesday, March 17 identify antibodies recruited by the body to fight the disease, noting that the immune system responds to COVID-19 in the same way it would have been fighting flu patients.

‘The immune cell population we have seen appear before the patient recovered are the same cells that we see in influenza, “said the head of the laboratory of Professor Katherine Kedzierska.

Three days after admission, they identified a large population of some immune cells ‘are often tell-tale sign of recovery during seasonal influenza infections’, says research fellow Oanh Nguyen.

‘So we predict that patients will recover within three days, which is what happened,’ said Dr Nguyen.

The team hopes the findings will help health practitioners plan for the kind of treatment required for each patient, as well as help other scientists both locally and abroad in the race to find an effective vaccine.

‘Our study is an important step in understanding how our body recovers from mild to moderate infections of the 19th COVID,’ said Professor Kedzierska.

‘This information will allow us to evaluate candidate vaccines, such vaccines in an ideal world should emulate our immune response.’

Answer whether the virus provides immunity from repeated infections will become clearer in the coming months, Professor Kedzierska said, after checking with the patient.

Dr Michelle Tate, head Immunity Viral and laboratories immunopathology at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research, said newsGP that while the study was interesting, “additional studies in larger groups of patients are guaranteed, particularly those in attendance to the hospital with severe disease ‘.

‘In addition, we currently do not know how well the immune system can respond to the virus in those who are most at risk, such as older people,’ added Dr. Tate.

The researchers say this will be the next step. They will set out to map the immune system of a larger cohort of patients, including those with severe symptoms, to see what parts of the immune response does not get activated.

rapid response Peter Doherty Institute is among a number of efforts made in the midst of a global pandemic.

In the US, an experimental vaccine COVID-19 began on Monday, March 16th at the Kaiser Permanente research facility in Seattle, Washington – the epicenter of the country breakout.

Four patients are given, making use of a short segment of the genetic code is copied from the virus COVID-19 and reproduced by scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in collaboration with biotechnology company Moderna Inc.

Dr John Tregoning, an expert in infectious diseases at Imperial College London, acknowledged that it was a very fast pace, but said the vaccine was made using existing technologies.

‘This made for a very high standard, using the things that we know are safe to use in people and those who took part in the trial will be very closely monitored, “he said.

Each volunteer will receive two lots of vaccine 28 days apart.

The trial will evaluate whether the vaccine is safe and evoke an immune response. However, NIAID Director Anthony Fauci S highlighted that before the vaccine can be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), two additional experimental phase will be necessary, which means that the actual vaccine will still be 12-18 months.

In Australia there are more than 400 confirmed cases of coronavirus at the time of publication on Tuesday, March 17 mostly whom is from, along with five deaths recorded.

With the number of cases has, Australian Chief Medical Officer Professor Brendan Murphy that social distance is the most important thing people can do.

‘There is no doubt we, as a nation, we have to practice social distancing much tighter if we are going to control the spread of this virus community,’ he said.

‘We will make various recommendations to the government on measures of social distance for indoor events and smaller events.’

In addition to prohibiting the Federal Government has called on people to limit their visits to aged care facilities and refrain from traveling to a remote area to. school closure is not recommended, unless there have been confirmed cases of the virus in the school.

Professor Murphy said the measures could be in place ‘for a few weeks if not months’, but said there was only a low chance people are required to be quarantined for two weeks given the number of current cases.

As society grows increasingly concerned about the spread of coronavirus, RACGP President Dr Harry Nespolon warned Australia this week to be aware of false or medical ‘advice’ and updates misleading in social media.

Model Miranda Kerr and entrepreneurs have come under fire for promoting ‘Virus Protection’ guide of ‘medical media’ Anthony William to her 12 million followers on Instagram. While fake ‘letter’, claiming to be from the Ministry of Health and Health Minister Greg Hunt Victoria Jenny Mikakos, has also been circulated on social media about the closure of schools in Victoria.

‘I understand that people are scared, but switched to social media content false or misleading is not the answer,’ said Dr Nespolon.

‘It is not always easy, but social media users need to critically examine this content and consider the source of information and whether it is credible.’

RACGP president Dr Harry Nespolon.

Dr Nespolon encourage all Australians to apply the ‘sniff test’ to post on social media, ask yourself whether the information is reliable and trustworthy.

‘The best source of information about COVID-19 included and official health.gov.au sites, not Miranda Kerr Instagram account,’ he said.

‘My advice is simple – wash hands, keep them away from the face, avoiding your handshake and a mass public meeting and do not always believe what you see on social media.’

Dr Nespolon false or misleading word social media posts about virus see so-called ‘experts’ make false claims were made ‘physician work harder than necessary’.

The RACGP President asked ‘influencers’ of social media and those with large followers to self-regulate what they post.

‘If you do not have your health professional should not be handing out free medical advice. Leaving the experts, “Dr Nespolon urgent.

‘If you want to encourage people to wash their hands are fine, but advises social media followers that they can avoid COVID-19 by not eating eggs does not help.

‘No one can be sure what will be needed in Australia in the coming months to limit the damage COVID-19, but I can reliably tell you that the answer lies in listening to’ medical media ‘such as Anthony William. ‘

national cabinet is due to meet on the evening of Tuesday 17 March to discuss improvement measures for aged care sector and a meeting room.
