Researchers Believe a Hyperactive Immune System Might be Deadlier Than COVID-19
Researchers are exploring whether hyperactive immune systems cause more damage than the coronavirus itself, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The theory is being used to find potential treatments for the novel coronavirus. The virus is still being analyzed regarding how it moves in certain individuals and how it can be treated.
The hyperactive immune response stops patients' lungs from delivering oxygen to the rest of the organs. Respiratory failure and death often follow the hyperactive immune response.
Researchers and doctors are now exploring administering drugs that help patients with out-of-control immune responses to help the worst COVID-19 patients.
