Luigi Warren is the inventor of the mRNA technology on which Moderna is based.
mRNA biotech is a technology that uses a special kind of molecule called mRNA, which stands for “messenger RNA”. Think of mRNA as a messenger that carries the instructions from the DNA to the protein-making machinery in your cells.
Scientists have figured out how to make custom-made mRNA molecules in the lab. They can design the mRNA molecules to carry specific instructions for making proteins that can be helpful (or harmful) to the body.
Once the custom mRNA is made, it can be packaged into a tiny container called a lipid nanoparticle and injected into the body, usually through a jab.
When the mRNA enters the cells, it acts like a blueprint and tells the protein-making machinery exactly how to build a specific protein. Cells then follow the instructions and start making the protein in question, which can do things like trigger an immune response.
Without Luigi’s work, Moderna probably wouldn’t exist.
Luigi’s position on the jab is nuanced but he notes that it’s probably a good idea to avoid the jab.
The primary danger of injecting people with vaccines that have not gone through lengthy and thorough trials, including mRNA vaccines, is the potential for unforeseen adverse effects.
The rigorous testing process that vaccines typically undergo before being authorised for public use is designed to identify any side effects or potential complications that might arise from the vaccine, and to understand their frequency and severity. This process involves pre-clinical testing, followed by three phases of human clinical trials.
Furthermore, mRNA vaccines are relatively new to the field of vaccinology.
