A group of German scientists working at Greifswald teaching hospital stated that they had discovered the actual cause of blood clots emerging in some recipients of the AstraZeneca vaccine. DW wrote that, citing Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR).
"The investigation showed how the vaccine caused blood clots in the brain in a few patients. The discovery means that targeted treatment can be developed to prevent problems. The success was a result of cooperation between the Greifswald hospital, state health regulator the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI), as well as doctors from Austria — a nurse there died from thrombosis in the brain after being vaccinated with the AstraZeneca jab. The researchers emphasized that treatment would only be possible in patients where blood clots appear, rather than as a preventative treatment", reads the story.
The European Medicines Agency earlier claimed there was no proved connection between the use of vaccine and the blood clots appearing in patients' blood. The Agency also stated that there were "more benefits than risks" in using this particular vaccine.
