Researchers have made an important discovery about the causes of schizophrenia, a disease related to dementia or fragmented mentality.   Researchers have identified two genes associated with the disease as well as a third gene that carries the risk of schizophrenia and autism. Scientists involved in this research believes, this discovery can go a long way in finding a cure for these kind of diseases. Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine found that these harmful genes are almost the same in every ethnic or racial group. The findings of this research were published in Nature Genetics . According to an estimate, about one percent of people worldwide suffering from schizophrenia. The scientists identified two risky genes, SRRM2 and AKAP11, based on a comparative analysis of gene sequencing from individuals with schizophrenia and healthy individuals. It compared a dataset of 35,828 patients with schizophrenia to 107,877 healthy or control groups and included a variety of

People Taking Both Doses Against COVID-19 Also Develop Immunity Against Other Viruses

If you have been infected with the corona virus once and have also taken both doses of the vaccine, then you have been protected from other virus infections including corona. This has been said in a study published in the medical journal The Lancet Infectious Disease . Researchers micro-analyzed the health data of the people of Brazil during 2020-21. It is known that Brazil had the highest number of deaths after America. In this study, researchers found that people who had already been infected with COVID-19, developed immunity to 90%, preventing death due to Pfizer and astrazeneca vaccines. In the context of China's CoronaVac, this figure was 81%, while it was 58% in the case of Johnson & Johnson's vaccine.
