A New Deficiency Implicated in Many Diseases: Antiviral Mannose-Binding Lectin

Antiviral Mannose-Binding Lectin Deficiency Implicated in Many Diseases

In a recent article, I discussed some of the history regarding the Ebola virus and the fact that contracting Ebola – like many other viruses – requires not simply contact with a symptomatic patient, but an immune system unable to defend itself against the virus.

This lack of defense can come in the form of immunosuppression, but it can also come from a deficient production of mannose-binding lectins, which may well be the result of a poor diet or other stress factors that erodes the immune system.
