The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection causes distinct pathogenesis in adults and children. In this study, researchers utilized our Aurora Elite column to support multiomics studies and combined this with chip-based mechanistic studies to investigate the immune response and blood proteome of severe COVID-19 patients, including both adults and children, to identify the differences in disease pathogenesis. The results showed that adults had higher levels of inflammatory markers and activation of immune cells, whereas children had higher levels of antiviral markers and immune response associated with wound healing. The findings suggest that the different pathogenesis of severe COVID-19 in adults and children is associated with distinct immune responses. Understanding the distinct drivers of the disease in different age groups can aid in the development of targeted therapies and improve patient outcomes.
