“More than Meets the Eye”: Another PubMed Paper Warns of Potential Dangers from Vaccine and Covid Spike Proteins

The spike protein (red) mediates the coronavirus entry into host cells. It binds to the angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (blue) through its S1 subunit and then fuses viral and host membranes through the S2 subunits.

In a recent paper titled “Be aware of SARS-CoV-2 spike protein: There is more than meets the eye,” published in the Journal of Biological Regulators and Homeostatic Agents, T C Theoharides et al. repeated a scientific warning on the potential danger of the “Spike protein” in vaccines and on the Covid virus.


Describing the suspected role of these spike proteins in the pathogenesis of Covid “long haul”, the authors from Tufts University School of Medicine, Boston, said,

“The best well-known vaccines have utilized either mRNA or an adenovirus vector to direct human cells to produce the spike protein against which the body produces mostly neutralizing antibodies.”


But then questioned the “types of antibodies produced” and noted that the “spike protein by itself” which the vaccines produce may actually be the causative agent in many covid infection symptoms and more so in “the pathogenesis of long-COVID syndrome that may affect as many as 50% of those infected with SARS-CoV-2.” They said,

“However, recent reports have raised some skepticism as to the biologic actions of the spike protein and the types of antibodies produced. One paper reported that certain antibodies in the blood of infected patients appear to change the shape of the spike protein so as to make it more likely to bind to cells, while other papers showed that the spike protein by itself (without being part of the corona virus) can damage endothelial cells and disrupt the blood-brain barrier. These findings may be even more relevant to the pathogenesis of long-COVID syndrome that may affect as many as 50% of those infected with SARS-CoV-2. In COVID-19, a response to oxidative stress is required by increasing anti-oxidant enzymes.”


While Johnson and Johnson, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines use slightly modified spike proteins which ‘do not enter the cell,’ but stay outside the membrane, AstraZeneca uses the same wild type spike protein that covid carries and enters the cell just as covid does. However, the danger of the spike protein and its potential role in long haul syndromes has not yet been related to whether or not and to what degree it enters the cell.

We have earlier published on dangers of the spike protein which the University of Tech Texas said can cause long term gene changes and which can be linked to the long haul Covid and long haul post-vaccine syndromes.
