Education

-- A protein in a person's blood, 'platelet factor 4,' can bind to a key element of the AstraZeneca vaccine, potentially triggering a reaction, with antibodies attacking the protein, which in turn may lead to blood clots, The Washington Post quoted a new study published on Thursday in the Science Advances journal as indicating. Researchers from Cardiff University from the UK, Arizona State University from the U.S., and AstraZeneca joined the study.
