Zolgensma and Covid vaccines
This is probably above any of our pay grades to talk about, but some of the more recent COVID vaccine candidates are using adenoviruses as their vector to deliver the stuff to create an immune response (The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines don’t use adenoviruses). Zolgensma also uses an adenovirus to deliver the gene therapy. I believe the specific ones are different, AAV9 for Zolgensma and I know the Johnson&Johnson one uses 26. But might they both cause immune responses that affect each other? I think mothers pass some of their immune system responses to children, so I’m wondering if those vaccines will cause issues for children that might need Zolgensma in the future (or even adults if it ever gets approved for that use).
I just thought this might be a concern for anybody involved with SMA. Maybe someone can get an expert to check into it?
