Zoe Study from University of Oxford

Posted by strongevergreen @strongevergreen, Dec 19, 2021

This study addresses some of my concerns about combining immune suppressants with immune stimulants. I’m interested to learn what others think about it

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Autoimmune Diseases group.

@strongevergreen. A study about combining immunosuppressants with immune stimulants sounds interesting. Do you have a copy of the study that we could read?

@becsbuddy, here is the link to more information about the ZOE COVID Study that @strongevergreen refers to
– ZOE COVID Study https://covid.joinzoe.com/about

It is an app gathering information from the general public to predict who has the virus and so track COVID infections originally in the UK and now other countries. People are asked to download the app and report information daily. Daily reporting data are used to generate new scientific understanding of the different symptoms the virus causes in different people and more.

The News and Research section (https://covid.joinzoe.com/blog) on the website shares more about the research, webinars, and academic papers that are being produced entirely because of the contributions by the public.

If anyone is interested in taking part in the global tracking research, I recommend starting with the FAQ section https://covid.joinzoe.com/faq and being informed about the use of data.

Strongevergreen. I saw that you posted this webinar link elsewhere and I think this may be the information you were referring to when you posted this discussion
– Vaccines and the Immunosuppressed https://covid.joinzoe.com/post/vaccines-and-the-immunosuppressed

In this expert webinar, Professor Tim Spector, lead scientist at the ZOE COVID Study, was joined by Professor Ellie Barnes, Professor of Hepatology and Experimental Medicine at the University of Oxford, and Professor Gavin Giovannoni, an academic neurologist and multiple sclerosis expert based in the Blizard Institute, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London.

They answered all your questions about immunosuppression and how a compromised immune system can alter the effectiveness of your COVID vaccine.

What did you learn from the webinar? What did it help you understand better?

The ZOE Study gave me a lot of insight into how immunosuppressant meds function and how vaccines function. It confirmed my suspicions about the impaired effectiveness of the vaccine for people like me who use medications to address autoimmune diseases like Multiple Sclerosis. I really want to get the Pfizer vaccine, but I don’t want to be lulled into a false sense of security. I have zero problem isolating from people or wearing a mask if that’s impossible.

I didn’t access the webinar. I read the posting for the study itself. It is a posting that contains several separate sections addressed to separate concerns
