CN Krankheit

Leute, ich brauche kurz mal eure Aufmerksamkeit. Viele haben mich in den letzten Wochen gefragt, "Hams was ist los mit dir". Ich würde gerne kurz meine Reichweite nutzen um auf ein wichtige Krankheit aufmerksam zu machen.
Diese Krankheit nennt sich chronische Erschöpfungssyndrom oder #ME/CFS . Oft tritt diese Erschöpfung nach einem Virusinfekt auf. Mich hat es vor ein paar Jahren erwischt nach einer Grippe. Das Hauptsymptom ist Belastungsintoleranz, so dass schon kleine Anstrengungen wie der Gang
zum Bad eine extreme Anstrengung darstellen kann. Zwar hatte ich die Krankheit ganz gut im Griff, aber durch Corona hat sie sich temporär extrem verschlimmert. Mittlerweile geht es mir wieder ganz okay. Übrigens erwarten Experten, dass durch Corona möglicherweise eine neue Welle

Awesome study used mice + human brain organiod model to show #COVID-19 can infect the CNS/#brain, where it specifically infected radial #glia, neural stem cells + #neurons. The #virus altered the #metabolism of the neurons it infected + cld use neuron cell machinery to replicate
2/ It’s not surprising that #COVID-19 can infect neurons given the nasal cavity is connected to the #CNS via the cribriform plate, olfactory epithelium + #nerve. This led the team to state that “the brain should be considered a high-risk organ system upon #respiratory exposure”
3/ The team also showed that, at least in some #COVID-19 patients w/ #neurological symptoms, there is a robust antibody response to the #virus in the #cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). In fact, CSF-containing antiviral #antibodies blocked COVID-19 infection in brain organoids

Cool new study which found that a range of #pathogens (some capable of long-term persistence in tissue + #blood) upregulate expression of the cell surface protein CD47 in the host cells they infect as an #immune evasion strategy
2/ I fact, upregulation of CD47 is a very smart survival strategy by such pathogens, b/c it interferes w/ the host innate immune response that is normally supposed to identify, target and kill them!
3/ Specifically the team found that upregulation of CD47 by the pathogens under study slowed uptake of dead/#infected cells by the #immune system, including the downstream activity of #antigen presenting cells that are needed to recognize pathogens in the first place

@meganranney 1. Many post-Covid patients still feel exhausted after 60 days and haven't returned to their previous level of health. A small amount of exertion wipes them out for hours. This is known as Post-Exertional Malaise or PEM or crashing.
1/n
@meganranney 2. An unknown percentage of these patients may never recover and will go on to develop Myalgic Encephalomyelitis aka Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. #MECFS
3. Support groups for thousands of these patients have already appeared on Facebook.
2/n
@meganranney 4. Numbers of patients with #MECFS could double in a few years, putting great stress on disability support.
5. There is no treatment for #MECFS. Rest and lifestyle management are key.
6. Very few doctors feel confident diagnosing, treating or counseling #MECFS patients.
3/n

@jenbrea Jen what you say resonates w/ me, and one additional thing I find frustrating abt this pandemic is that Anthony Fauci involvement with the #ME/CFS outbreaks in the USA played a considerable role in the illness being deemed psychomatic in the first place
@jenbrea 2/ As detailed in the book Osler’s Web by @oslersweb, Steven Strauss headed the main lab at the NIAID charged w/ studying #ME/CFS during most of the #outbreaks (including the large outbreak in Tahoe Nevada)
@jenbrea @oslersweb 3/ Partly b/c many women got sick w/ ME/CFS during the outbreaks, Strauss was one of the biggest drivers of the (incorrect!) theory that ME/CFS was due to hysteria and was a psychosomatic rather than biological illness

Dear @PaulGarnerWoof as a doctor myself, who’s been on same journey, it’s been interesting to read the evolution of your thoughts on experiencing #Covid_19 viral/postviral fatigue & then on Sx experienced by those who develop #ME/CFS . People who are so often wrongly disbelieved.
@PaulGarnerWoof to read u say,
“I am reading materials about pacing and CFS/ME and listening to the CFS/ME community. I am taken aback that doctors have been so dismissive of what these patients have been saying for so long” & to hear youve spoken to Charles Shepherd too is great
@PaulGarnerWoof so much work is being done by charities & individuals to advocate for patients but also to teach, educate & convince many doctors that these symptoms are REAL, debilitating & MUST be believed & correctly advised & managed.

Thank you @PlzSolveCFS for including me this video that helps people better understand the devastating and debilitating disease #ME/CFS: m.youtube.com/watch?v=LPUxt3… Image
2/ A growing body of evidence indicates thst #ME/CFS involves neuroinflammation, possibly connected to the activity of #viral pathogens capable of persisting in the central nervous system (CNS): frontiersin.org/articles/10.33…
3/ There have been dozens of #ME/CFS #outbreaks over the years, many connected to #enteroviruses, coxsackie #viruses and even respiratory viruses (w/ enterovirus found in the brain of patients via autopsy in some cases) Image

Hey! I have some thoughts on the paper below that attempts to position #ME/CFS as an “autoimmune disease” by associating 2 SNPs with very small odds ratios to differences b/t infectious & noninfectious disease onset (OR=0.54 & OR=0.64): frontiersin.org/articles/10.33…
2/ The team didn’t study the #ME/CFS immune response itself, but instead measured several common #SNPs associated w/ certain “autoimmune” conditions in their ME/CFS subjects. For example SNPs in the gene PTPN22 (connected to #Crohn’s, type 1 #diabetes etc)
3/ PTPN22 is a gene that, in simple terms, plays a role in regulating B and T cell activity. It’s actually just a gene that impacts the immune response (there doesn’t HAVE to be anything “autoimmune”-inducing about PTPN22 activity)

I study the illness #ME/CFS - a neuroinflammatory condition that usually begins w/ a #viral infection (sometimes a #respiratory infection!). I have argued for years that infecting #pathogens tied to the illness might persist in the central nervous system (CNS) of such patients
2/ While I realize this article is talking about acute #infection and #COVID19 - it explains that #SARS-CoV-2 “might infect neurons, raising questions about whether there could be effects on the brain that play a role in patients’ deaths:”
the-scientist.com/news-opinion/l…
3/ Matt Anderson, (one of my favorite Beth Israel pathologists!) states, “Some of the purely respiratory symptoms that you might attribute to the #disease, the inability to get air into the #lungs, might actually be defects in #respiration controlled by the #nervous system.”

1/ #ME: Feeling a way about the incuriosity/obvious bias in the press. Thought I'd annotate an article with my thoughts/analysis.
2/ #CPS: The CTU won’t agree to the money until it gets the other items on what Jackson calls its “social justice bargaining” agenda.

#ME How do Black and Brown children get anything w/o a justice oriented agenda? Or, a demand? Better question: Why don’t they already have it?
3/ #CPS: That includes everything from affordable housing , a dramatic increase in “community schools”, enforceable caps on class size, mandatory hiring of support personnel written into the contract and more teacher prep time with potential to shorten the school day.
