New Delhi mourn New research shows that people who have been vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 and have a history of dementia have a higher risk of developing CV-19. The finding may be related to a weakened immune response and dangerous behaviors associated with certain diseases.
The study, conducted by UCSF researchers in San Francisco, California, was recently published in the journal JAMA Network Open.
Patients over the age of 65 have an increased risk of developing a psychiatric disorder.
The researchers found that patients over the age of 65 had a 24 percent higher risk of developing covide-19 in patients with drug addiction, psychotic disorders, bipolar disorder, dementia and anxiety. People under the age of 65 are 11 percent more likely to develop CV-19 if they have no history of mental illness.
The data for both age groups were corrected by age, gender, race, ethnicity and vaccine type, and smoking and adjusted for obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular, lung, kidney and liver diseases.
The scientists found the data to be more than a quarter of a million veterans in the United States Department of Veterans who have been fully vaccinated and have tested at least one SARS-CoV-2 test.
According to the study, more than 50 percent of patients have had at least one psychiatric examination in the last five years, and 14.8 percent have had CV-19.
Immunizations for people with psychiatric disorders more quickly
The study’s lead author, Aofe Odonova, said in a statement to the USSF that the increase in infections in people with mental illness could not be fully explained by socioeconomic status or pre-existing conditions. She adds that after immunization, people with a mental illness may be rapidly or severely weakened and may have less protection from new differences.
An earlier study by USSF scientists found that people with high levels of anxiety and possibly anxiety disorders are more likely to engage in behaviors that make them more susceptible to CVD-19.
Up to 2,63,697 participants participated and the average age was 66. According to the study, 90.8% of the participants were male.
Participants with a mental illness By 2021, there is a high risk of developing CV-19 infections, which is 3% higher than in participants without a history of psychosis.
However, the risk is 24% higher for participants over the age of 65, 23% for those with a mental illness, 16% for those with bipolar disorder, and 14% for participants with dementia. And is 12% higher for patients with anxiety.
Why are some young participants less likely to develop an infection than adults?
Although there is a high incidence of infectious diseases among adolescents, the study had a small impact on participants under 65 years of age.
For patients with psychiatric disorders, the risk is 10% lower compared to older participants with a psychiatric diagnosis. Odonovan said the reduction may be due to low social interactions among young people with psychosis compared to older people “who may be socially isolated due to their high health burden and contact with caregivers.”
The study found that drug-related infections, cognitive impairment, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder were significantly higher among younger participants without psychiatric treatment than their peers. 11%, 9%, 4%, and 3% for adolescents’ risk of infection:
Why is there so much infection among older participants?
The study’s lead author, Christine Nishimi, said that the higher incidence of infection in older participants may be “a significant reduction in the immune response to vaccines associated with certain psychiatric disorders.”
She pointed out that older people with a mental illness may need frequent physical care, which may increase their relationship with the health care system.
Chances of getting infections in people with mental illness
The scientists also calculated the risk factors for other non-psychological conditions and adjusted them according to obesity and other basic conditions.
According to the study, 23% of participants with chronic kidney disease, 20 percent with HIV, 19 percent with cardiovascular disease, 18 percent with severe pneumonia, and 13 percent with sleep disorders. Apnea. This is a serious sleep disorder, in which breathing often stops and begins.
According to Odonova, the results show that some people with a mental illness, especially those over the age of 65, are at a higher risk than others.
She added that mental health is important to consider in conjunction with other risk factors, and that some patients should prioritize incentives and other critical preventive measures.
