St. Jude researchers uncover origins of deadly inflammation caused by the novel coronavirus

St. Jude Scientists Make Advance in COVID-19

New study identifies potential treatment strategy using combination of existing drugs that appear to disrupt deadly process

On a day when COVID-19-related deaths in the U.S. topped 250,000, researchers at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital announced findings that point to promising new therapies aimed at preventing many of the life-threatening complications of the disease.

A team led by Thirumala-Devi Kanneganti, PhD, vice chair of the St. Jude Department of Immunology, identified a previously unknown interaction between two messenger proteins that can unleash a cascade of inflammatory cell death, leading to tissue damage and multiple organ failure. The team also reported that two existing drugs based on neutralizing antibodies appear to disrupt this deadly process.

The study, published online in the journal Cell, comes as researchers around the globe race to develop therapies and vaccines to staunch a pandemic that, in less than one year, has killed some 1.2 million people and sickened millions more. With effective treatment options currently limited, doctors often rely on supportive care, including supplemental oxygen and mechanical breathing assistance, in their efforts to save patients.

“Understanding the pathways and mechanism driving this inflammation is critical to develop effective treatment strategies,” said Kanneganti, who was corresponding author of the study. “This research provides that understanding.”

The work by Kanneganti’s team focused on cytokines, tiny proteins secreted primarily by immune cells. Infections involving SARS-CoV-2 — the virus that causes COVID-19 — can lead to increased blood levels of cytokines.

These proteins sometimes cause inflammation, and when they flood the bloodstream in dramatically increased levels, lead to what researchers call a “cytokine storm.” Other life-threatening disorders such as sepsis and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) can lead to the same immune system overreaction. But the exact pathways initiating the cytokine storms and subsequent inflammation have remained a mystery.

To find them, Kanneganti and her team examined the cytokines most often present in elevated levels in COVID-19 patients. After finding that no single cytokine caused cell death, the scientists tested 28 combinations of the proteins and discovered that just one pair, working together, did induce inflammation and tissue damage mirroring the symptoms of COVID-19.

Researchers further concluded that existing drugs, Remicade and Gamifant, which are used to treat such inflammatory diseases as Crohn’s disease and colitis prevented COVID-19 complications in laboratory models.

“The results also suggest that therapies that target this cytokine combination are candidates for rapid clinical trials for treatment of not only COVID-19, but several other often fatal disorders associated with cytokine storm,” Kanneganti said.

The study’s co-first authors are Rajendra Karki, PhD, and Bhesh Raj Sharman, PhD, of the Kanneganti laboratory. The other authors are Shraddha Tuladhar, Parimal Samir, Min Zheng, Balamurugan Sundaram, Balaji Banoth, R. K. Subbarao Malireddi, Patrick Schreiner, Geoffrey Neale, Peter Vogel and Richard Webby, of St. Jude; and Evan Peter Williams, Lillian Zalduondo and Colleen Beth Jonsson, of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.

The research was supported in part by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH); and ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude.

On Coronavirus, We Must Not Allow Politics to Dictate Science | Ron Paul

In these past couple of weeks, two important studies have been published that could dramatically increase our understanding of the Covid-19 disease. Adding to the science of how we understand and treat this disease is something that should be welcomed, because properly understood it can save lives.

The only problem is that because the results from these two studies challenge what the media has established as conventional wisdom about the disease, the reports are at best being ignored and at worst being openly distorted by the mainstream media.

This is in my view a dangerous and foolish subjugation of science to politics and it may well end up causing many more unnecessary deaths.

First is the Danish mask study, which was completed several months ago but was only recently published in a peer-reviewed journal. The study took two groups and gave the first group masks to wear with instruction on how they should be used. The other group was the mask-free control group.

The study found that coronavirus spread within the statistical margin of error in each group. In other words, wearing the mask did little if anything to control the spread of the virus.

As the wearing of masks is still being mandated across the country and the globe, this study should be reported as an important piece of counter-evidence. At the very least it might be expected to invite a rush of similar studies to refute or confirm the results.

However, while mostly ignored by the media, when it was covered the spin on the study was so strange that the conclusion presented was opposite to the findings. For example, the Los Angeles Times published an article with the headline, “Face mask trial didn’t stop coronavirus spread, but it shows why more mask-wearing is needed.”

Similarly, a massive new study conducted in Wuhan, China, and published in the respected scientific journal Nature, reports that asymptomatic persons who have tested positive for Covid-19 do not pass on the infection to others. Considering that mask mandates and lockdowns are all based on the theory that asymptomatic “positive cases” can still pass on the sickness, this is potentially an important piece of information to help plan a more effective response to the virus.

At the least, again, it should stimulate additional, far-reaching studies to either confirm or deny the Wuhan study.

We do know, based on information from widely-accepted sources as the CDC and World Health Organization, that lockdowns can have a very serious negative effect on society. On July 14th, CDC Director Robert Redfield told a seminar that lockdowns are causing more deaths than Covid.

So if there is a way to continue fighting Covid and protecting those most at risk while drastically reducing deaths related to lockdowns, isn’t this worth some consideration? Isn’t this worth at least some further research?

Well, not  according to the mainstream media. They have established their narrative and they are not about to budge. The two studies are fatally flawed, they report. Of course that might be the case, but isn’t that an argument to attempt to replicate the studies to prove it?

That would be the scientific approach. Sadly, “trust the science” has come to mean “trust the narrative I support.” That is a very dangerous way of thinking and can prove to be deadly.

Vera Sharav Holocaust Survivor: America is at a Crossroads – Defy Authority or Become Like Nazi Germany

Comments by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

This is Part 2 of the interview with Vera Sharav by Stand for Health Freedom. See Part 1:

Holocaust Survivor: I Saved my Own Life by being “Oppositional Defiant” – Americans are not Rebelling Against Things that are Wrong!

In this interview, Vera explains how eugenics came to Nazi Germany from the U.S., and is still around today.

She discusses the dangers of vaccines, and answers the question: Who bears the responsibility if your child is injured?

She urges parents need to rebel against mandated vaccines. She compares this rebellion to Martin Luther King Jr.’s rebellion for Blacks.

She discusses how foster children from 1985 to 2005 were used for HIV research, and the topic of medical kidnapping.

She warns that America is at a crossroads, and that if people do not stop blindly obeying authority, that the U.S. will very soon be just like Nazi Germany was in WWII, as she sees the same things happening here in the U.S. now.

Plant Based for Health Zoom recap from Stephanie Spencer

Hello friends!

Kellie and I have decided that going forward, we’ll send out some video segments of speakers, formal topics, or Plant Based Transformation stories to the email list, but still keep the Zoom chat private between participants in the live session as most folks seem to be more comfortable with that format.  

So here’s some resources from our Zoom Chat last Thursday:

  • Stephanie’s presentation of “Don’t Miss the Forest for the Trees!”

Based on the 80/20 Pareto Priniciple (20% of targeted effort will yield 80% of the results), Stephanie discusses the most IMPORTANT dietary changes you need to make FIRST to have the most impact on your health when considering switching to a Plant Based Diet.

And if you’re interested in learning more about Plant Based Nutrition and Chronic disease reversal, I have a 1 hour webinar explaining the basics, including “Where do you get your protein?!” and I have also converted my live courses to a self-paced online format that you can learn more about at

“Change your Food, Change your Life” Webinar link here:

  • Our next Zoom meeting will be Thursday, December 17th at 7 pm. I’ll send out the Zoom link with a reminder the day before.
  • Also below is Annie’s amazing chocolate hummus recipe!  I think this is an absolutely brilliant and tasty way to add more legumes and fiber to your daily diet.I am also attaching below if you want to easily print it out.

Thanks to everyone who was able to join the meeting last week.  I know everyone has busy schedules so hopefully you’ll get some value out of these emails and our Facebook page.

If you’re on Facebook, please post your favorite Plant Based Thanksgiving or holiday dishes or snacks to the page-this is how we all learn!  FYI-for recipes, we would like them to be “No Oil”, but please don’t be overly paranoid-if there is a health issue with a recipe, I’ll post a comment below it and we’ll see if we can tweak it-I am too old to be part of the “cancel culture” mentality (if you don’t know what this is-consider yourself lucky and continue enjoying your life).

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving and please be safe out there!

In health and hope,
