CAVEAT: Dorry Segev, principal investigator in that national study of C-19 natural immunity, is a pro-“vaccine” nut-job
Here, again, is the link to the announcement of the study, which we should avoid like the plague (as it were). Check out Dr. Segev’s adorable “hip-hop” video: https://mobile.twitter.com/Dorry_Segev/status/1341079491066679296
Thanks to Anne Rose for the heads-up.
They’re seeking subjects.
National study of COVID-19 Natural Immunity in Unvaccinated Persons
Below you will find information about this study titled:
The National Study of COVID-19 Natural Immunity in Unvaccinated Persons (IRB00295352) is being led by a research team of surgeons, infectious disease doctors and epidemiologists at Johns Hopkins. The principal investigator is Dorry Segev, MD PhD, Associate Vice Chair of Surgery at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Segev’s research uses advanced statistical methods for mathematical modeling and simulation of medical data, analysis of large healthcare datasets, and outcomes research. Dr. Segev has partnered with Marty Makary, MD MPH, Chief of the Johns Hopkins Islet Transplant Center. Dr. Makary’s research focuses on the creation and evaluation of new health care innovations. He is also a leading voice for physicians, writing in The Wall Street Journal, and is the author of The New York Times best-selling book Unaccountable.
The purpose of this study is to determine COVID-19 antibody levels in people who have not had a COVID vaccine. The study does not provide the vaccine and study team members will not be offering guidance or medical advice as to whether or not one should receive a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. If participants are interested in the study, they will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire and provide a blood sample which will be tested for antibodies. The study team will share the results with the participants if they wish.
We are now enrolling healthy individuals who have not had a COVID vaccine.
