This difference between people infected with the Corona virus was revealed by a team of researchers from the United States and Britain.
The researchers used artificial intelligence technology, and discovered that there are certain genes in humans that cause serious complications.
// It is known that age, body mass index, and previous health problems are all reasons that lead to a different response in humans when infected with the emerging virus, but scientific studies have proven that genes also play an important role in determining the likelihood of complications when contracting the disease.//
artificial intelligence techniques
The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Sheffield in Britain and Stanford in the United States, and published in the scientific journal "Cell System", aims to find out why some people develop serious complications or die when infected with the Corona virus, while others recover after showing minor symptoms. .
The research team used artificial intelligence techniques to identify more than a thousand genes associated with the emergence of complications from the Corona virus in patients.
The genetic structure associated with infection with the Corona virus
And the website “Medical Express”, which specializes in medicine, quoted Jonathan Cooper, a researcher in the Department of Neurosciences at the University of Sheffield, as saying: “During the study, we discovered the genetic structure associated with infection with the Corona virus, and we found that there are more than a thousand genes responsible for 75% of the genetic promoters.” that exacerbate the symptoms of the disease.
As part of the study, the researchers relied on a huge database that includes lung tissue from 19 different types, including epithelial cells that represent the first line of defense against respiratory infection, as well as tissues of patients with serious complications as a result of infection with the Corona virus, as the researchers studied during the study. Genetic mutations that can be one of the causes of serious complications of the disease.
