Professor Alex Richter said: “The antibodies we identified are similar to those that cause a number of skin, muscle and heart autoimmune diseases.

Co-researcher, Professor Paul Moss stated that their study showed “for the first time” that Covid is associated to the production of selective autoantibodies.
