Astrazeneca Vaccine and Thrombi: Why They Affect More Women

From Germany a hypothesis is being considered that could explain why the women suffer more cases of thrombi after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine: immune response. Víctor Jiménez, professor of Microbiology and Parasitology at the Complutense University of Madrid, explains it in ‘Horizonte’.

“The highest prevalence in women is an autoimmune issue,” explains the expert. This is because the immune response in women “is stronger for genetic and hormonal reasons”, since they are prepared for pregnancy. “They safeguard the species and evolution has given them more effective immunity”, Explains Jiménez.

But that positive side also has its counterpart: that women have more autoimmune diseases That men. “This means that if there is an immune problem, it makes sense that it is more prevalent in women,” says the professor.
