Cytokine Storm in COVID-19

Dr. Arup Halder


Abstract: COVID-19 pandemic has resulted a reincarnation of the term ?Cytokine storm? The term is mostly used with another term called ?Sepsis?. But the current pandemic has taught us of a ?cytokine storm? much different from ?sepsis?. Though the term ?sepsis? is often used as a broad syndrome, it should be split into smaller and more homogeneous biological groups. Similarly, this theory is applicable for cytokine storm. The present article is a search for the cause of cytokine storm in COVID-19, the analysis of different pathways leading to cytokine storm and finding those candidates at risk of cytokine storm.
