OREANDA-NEWS Scientists from Germany and Norway have found out how the AstraZeneca vaccine can in rare cases provoke complications of thrombosis in those vaccinated. This information is reported by The Wall Street Journal.

Experts have found that the British-Swedish company's drug can cause an autoimmune reaction that provokes the formation of blood clots. This can explain the individual incidents of thromboembolic complications in some people vaccinated in Europe.

Scientists have found that due to a rare autoimmune reaction, antibodies appear, which then interact with platelets. According to scientists, it is possible to identify complications in patients with the help of a blood test.

Earlier, 20 European countries banned vaccination with AstraZeneca after some patients were diagnosed with thrombosis.
