BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL LETTER TO THE EDITOR APRIL 2021
The recent reports of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) following administration of CoViD-19 viral vector vaccines (AZ/Oxford and J&J/Janssen) have a peculiar clinical presentation exhibiting haemorrhage, blood clots and thrombocytopenia.
We previously proposed a mechanism [1-2] to explain the vaccine-induced prothrombotic immune thrombocytopenia (VIPIT) and reported that the genetic CoViD-19 vaccines (both viral and non-viral vector-based) may directly infect platelets or megakaryocytes triggering mRNA translation and consequent spike protein synthesis intracellularly.
This may potentially result in an autoimmune response against platelets and megakaryocytes. The consequent thrombocytopaenia may lead to internal bleeding and spontaneous blood clots. We also proposed that the increased circulatory levels of acute-phase proteins, as observed in the pre-clinical vaccine studies in animals, may also be a contributory factor in putting the haemostatic system at an increased thrombotic potential…
