Gut microbes could predict severity of c19 illness

Postby dmcff » 28 Apr 2020, 06:15

Another report that suggests a link between COVID-19 and events in the gastrointestinal tract - routinely called "gut" in news stories. There's also a link with inflammatory conditions.

The team explained the coronavirus enters the body by binding to the ACE2 enzyme, which plays an important role in the regulation of intestinal inflammation. ACE2 also has a "major impact" on the make-up of the microbes in the gut and therefore affects diseases of the heart and lungs, they said.
