(1/n) N-acetylcysteine (NAC) has a great potential to be beneficial in the treatment of #COVID19 & prevention of #SARSCoV2 infection.
Good review article: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
Unfortunately, NAC is currently given far too little attention. Image
(2/n) NAC is a precursor of the antioxidant glutathione, it can boost the immune system, suppress viral replication & reduce inflammation. Image
(3/n) NAC intake (6 months, 600 mg twice daily):
- significant reduction of influenza infections
- reduced severity and duration of most influenza symptoms
pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/9230243/ Image
(4/n) Image
(5/n) NAC has been demonstrated to inhibit the NF-κB pathway (RNA viruses need an active NF-κB pathway), and inhibits the replication of viruses, e.g. the human influenza virus (H5N1): pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19732754/ Image
(6/n) The main protease (Mpro) in SARS-CoV-2 is required for viral replication.
NAC seems to bind to Cys-145, an active site of Mpro, which could potentially inhibit its protease activity and thus viral replication: chemrxiv.org/engage/chemrxi… Image
(7/n) NAC at clinically obtainable concentrations by inhalation has been shown to inhibit neutrophil & monocyte chemotaxis & associated oxidative burst:

(8/n) NAC can reduce the incidence of pneumonia.
Mechanically ventilated patients can develop pneumonia. NAC (600 mg) treated patients developed significantly less pneumonia (26.6% vs 46.6%). Also reduced hospital stay & higher recovery rate was noted: pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29770192/ Image
(9/n) In patients with mild-to-moderate acute lung injury, intravenous NAC treatment (40mg/kg/day) for 3 days significantly improved systemic oxygenation, reduced the need for ventilatory support & also slightly reduced the mortality rate:
pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/8275731/ Image
(10/n) Effect of iv NAC on clinical & laboratory outcomes in a G6PD-deficient #COVID19 patient:
NAC blocked hemolysis &elevation of liver enzymes, CRP & ferritin. It allowed removal from respirator. Full recovery of the G6PD-deficient patient:
sciencedirect.com/science/articl… Image
(11/n) The authos of the review (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…) suggest the following therapeutic strategy to combat #COVID19 with NAC: Image

(1/9) The blood clot mystery
The new documentary “Died Suddenly” (rumble.com/v1wac7i-world-…) shows impressive footage of unusual blood cloths (microclots & white fibrous clots) of deceased vaccinated people.
Here is a compilation of the images: Image

(1/n) A microscopy analysis of a Moderna #Covidvaccine sample.
A fresh sample was analyzed with bright field and phase contrast microscopy. The cold chain was maintained and rigorous hygiene standards were applied.
These are the results: Image
(2/n) Particles and structures of different size and light refraction properties are visible in the vaccine when focusing on the border of the drop (yellow asterisk). Image
(3/n) Higher magnification reveals a wide spectrum of structures, including for example a rod-shaped structure (yellow arrow) with a length of about 14 µm (i.e. about twice as long as a red blood cell). Image

(1/n) A microscopy analysis of a Pfizer-BioNTech #Covidvaccine sample.
The analysis was performed with bright field and phase contrast microscopy and applying rigorous scientific and hygiene standards.
Two samples were analyzed from the same vial.
These are the results: Image
(2/n) Focusing on the border of the drop (yellow arrow) reveals tiny particles of different sizes and light refraction properties: Image
(3/n) Zooming in, the larger particles were found to have a diameter of about 1 µm.
For comparsion: Diameter of a human hair: 70-90 µm (link.springer.com/article/10.168…), human red blood cell: 8 µm (sciencedirect.com/science/articl…), SARS-CoV-2: 90-100 nm (nature.com/articles/s4159…) Image

(1/n) Today there was a press conference from the pathological institute in Reutlingen, Germany. The pathologists Prof. Dr. Arne Burkhardt and Prof. Dr. Walter presented the results of the autopsies of eight people who died after COVID19 vaccination.
#CovidVaccine Image
(2/n) In addition, new microscopic analyses of an Austrian research group on the ingredients of the vaccines were presented.
Video: (in German)
Here is a summary of the highlights.
(3/n) 10 autopsies, 8 evaluations.

(1/n) Surprising discovery: toxin-like peptides were detected in #COVID19 patients.
New study by Italian researchers: f1000research.com/articles/10-550
Let’s take a closer look. Image
(2/n) Blood plasma, urine & faecal samples from #COVID19 patients & healthy controls were investigated with a high-sensitivity mass spectrometry technique: LC-SACI-CIMS.
The technique is described in detail in this paper: …iencejournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/jm… Image
(3/n) Examples of full scan mass spectra, obtained by analyzing a urine sample from a #SARSCoV2 positive subject: Image
