Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has become a worldwide challenge. Severe respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) caused by coronavirus has often been associated with cytokine storm. Faradarmani Consciousness field (CF) is a novel field introduced by Mohammad Ali Taheri. This field is neither matter nor energy, doesn’t possess a quantity, cannot be measured directly, but it is possible to screen its effect indirectly by various experiments. The aim of this research was to investigate the effect of Faradarmani CF on inflammatory factors in blood samples of patients with COVID-19.
First, blood samples were taken from 53 patients and the mRNA expression of NF–κB, TNF-α, IL-1β and IL-6 genes was examined before and after the effect of Faradarmani CF on samples.
Our results showed that the expression of NF–κB, IL-1β genes were significantly decreased (p < 0.05) and TNF-α gene expression was increased (p < 0.05) but the expression of IL-6 didn’t change significantly under the influence of Faradarmani CF.
Immunomodulation at the level of NF–κB and IL-1β by Faradarmani CF may result in a reduction in the cytokine storm in COVID-19 patients. However, more works need to be done in identifying the effects of this CF.
