Yale Bio studies myocarditis after vaccination, thinks it may be due to abnormal cytokines

The Yale team considered three possible immune mechanisms of myocarditis:

  1. Autoimmune/molecular mimicry
  2. Hypersensitivity/eosinophilic type 2 immunity
  3. Cytokine-mediated lymphocyte/macrophage activation

They didn’t find evidence supporting the first 2 theories. Because they found an unusual cytokine pattern, they believe that cytokines are activating lymphocytes/macrophages which in turn causes symptoms.
