Yeah I guess it depends how it's being made. When plasma with antidotes were first being used the product wasn't as great but later they started making a better product with a higher titer concentration of the antibodies in it in order to try to get a better effect. Personally based off the data here I think the reason it worked in my area is because most likely the specific strain of that coronoavirus most likely was the most common one spreading at the time so when people donated they donated antibodies to the most common strain so if people with the same strain get that plasma it most likely actually helped. But if it's at a place with the virus mutating to new variants it seems highly probably the plasma will be useless. It's interesting though you solve one problem and cause another. I was lucky I never got the virus even though I was working in a hospital where it was everywhere infecting doctors and nurses and staff. I think because I'm In a lab and we take even stricter precautions than everyone else to begin with that's probably what helped. Our lab has always gotten specimens with known C diff, Turbuculosis etc type things so probably are safety measures along with masks probably made us the safest people there lol.
Twice?? Sheesh that sucks well good to see you made it through. I'm still under treatment for GERD however I'm using a less powerful medicine an H2 blocker instead of a PPI. It has no side effects like the PPIs so I prefer it and it works better for me for some reason. The doctors in my hospital have been using plasma with covid antibodies and they are surprisingly effective in keeping dire patients alive, I've seen a few patients basically come back from near death from it so even though it's just speculation it seems to have a beneficial effect. Besides the vaccine it seems to be the only real treatment that has an actual observable way to fight the virus at the moment.
I haven't talked to you in a hundred years. Its me PK. I'm just visiting for a day to see how everyone is doing. I hope your doctor journey is working well. I know the covid thing probably made that harder than it needed to be lol. Don't neglect your chess skills :p Those were fun times. Yeah man I hope you pass all your boards and get your residency and stuff if your at that point. Catch you later man!
World is ending soon. Praise Jesus.
