  • There's a lot of excitement right now around the record-speed vaccines for COVID-19,

    目前,人們對 COVID-19 疫苗的創紀錄的速度感到興奮,

  • some of which are already starting distribution in parts of the world.

    其中一些疫苗已經開始在世界部分地區分發。

  • But given that these are mRNA vaccines, a relatively new technology that has not been widely used before,

    但鑑於這些是信使核糖核酸(mRNA)疫苗,一種相對較新的技術,以前沒有廣泛使用,

  • we wanted to explain how they work and what happens to your body from the moment that needle touches your skin.

    我們想解釋它們是如何工作的,以及從針頭接觸皮膚的那一刻起,你的身體會發生什麼。

  • Like the vaccines we're used to seeing, these vaccines will be injected into the upper muscle of your arm.

    就像我們習慣看到的疫苗一樣,這些疫苗將被注射到你手臂的上肌肉。

  • But, unlike typical vaccines, which introduce inactive or weakened forms of a virus,

    但是,與引入非活性或弱化病毒的典型疫苗不同,

  • these will release genetic material called messenger RNA.

    這些疫苗會釋放一種被稱為 mRNA 的基因物質。

  • So, what exactly does this mRNA do?

    那麼,這個 mRNA 到底是做什麼的?

  • Well, in a regular cell of your body, you have DNA inside of the nucleus,

    在你身體的正常細胞中,細胞核內有DNA,

  • and this DNA stores all the information and instructions important to the functioning of your cells, your body, and, ultimately, makes you you.

    這個 DNA 存儲了所有對你的細胞和身體功能重要的信息和指令,並最終使你成為你自己

  • Inside your cell is machinery that reads through your DNA and transcribes it into mRNA,

    在你的細胞內有一種機制,它能讀取你的DNA並將其轉錄成mRNA,

  • which then leaves the nucleus and goes into your cytoplasm.

    然後 mRNA 離開細胞核進入細胞質。

  • And it's here that the ribosomes in your cells read the RNA and, depending on the specific code, build a series of amino acids, which fold in on themselves to make proteins, which keep you alive and functioning.

    正是在這裡,細胞中的核糖體讀取 RNA 訊息,並根據特定代碼構建一系列氨基酸,這些氨基酸自身折疊成蛋白質,,從而使您保持活力和功能。

  • This process is known as translation.

    這個過程稱為轉譯。

  • In fact, it's this process that viruses take advantage of in the first place.

    事實上,病毒首先利用的就是這個過程。

  • They insert their own genetic information into you, and then your cell machinery unwillingly starts taking that information and building proteins to help create more viruses.

    它們將自己的基因信息插入你體內,然後你的細胞機制不情願地開始獲取這些信息並製造蛋白質來幫助製造更多的病毒。

  • So, back to the needle: The mRNA that is being injected into you from the vaccine also carries genetic instructions,

    所以,回到針的問題上,從疫苗注射到你體內 mRNA 也帶有基因指令,

  • but in this case, it's only coding for one small part of the virus instead of the whole thing.

    但在這種情況下,它只編碼病毒的一小部分,而不是整個病毒。

  • You've probably seen SARS-CoV-2 represented like this, with the spikes on it,

    你可能見過這種新型冠狀病毒(SARS-CoV-2),表面呈棘狀,

  • and it's this spike protein, which, on its own is harmless, that the vaccine's mRNA code's for.

    這種棘狀蛋白本身是無害的,疫苗的 mRNA 代碼正是針對這種棘狀蛋白。

  • The mRNA makes its way into the cytoplasm of your cells where the ribosomes read the information and start to create the spike proteins.

    mRNA 進入細胞的細胞質,即核糖體讀取資訊的地方, 並開始創建棘狀蛋白。

  • Once the protein is made, it goes to the cell membrane, and then your cell breaks down and destroys the injected mRNA instructions.

    蛋白質一旦製成它會進入細胞膜,然後你的細胞就會分解並破壞注入的 mRNA 指令。

  • So, what good does having a tiny fragment of viral spike in your body do?

    所以,體內有一個小小的棘狀病毒有什麼用呢?

  • Well, it gives your body and, more importantly, your immune system, a preview of what the virus looks like without causing disease.

    它讓你的身體,更重要地,你的免疫系統,在不引起疾病的情況下預覽病毒的外觀。

  • Suddenly, your antibodies will notice it and go, "Well, this doesn't belong here",

    突然間,你的抗體會注意到它並察覺到它不屬於這裡,

  • which triggers an immune response to recognize and prepare your body for the real thing without ever having to come in contact with the actual virus itself.

    這會觸發免疫反應以識別病毒並讓身體做好準備,而不需要接觸到病毒本身。

  • Your immune system essentially gets a head start by creating powerful antibodies that can neutralize and kill the real virus.

    你的免疫系統基本上得到了先發優勢,透過創造強大的抗體中和並殺死真正的病毒。

  • And this antibody "memory" is stored in your B cells so that if you are ever infected in the future with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, your body now has the upper hand.

    這種抗體記憶儲存在你的 B 細胞中,這樣一來,如果你將來感染了新型冠狀病毒, 你的身體就處於優勢。

  • This is known as an adaptive immune response.

    這就是所謂的適應性免疫反應。

  • Your body has already seen these spike proteins before, and therefore, it already knows what to do.

    你的身體之前看過這些棘狀蛋白,所以它已經知道如何應對。

  • Essentially, these mRNA vaccines allow your body to protect itself from a future infection without ever having to risk the consequences of getting the disease, COVID-19.

    基本上,這些 mRNA 疫苗讓你的身體,預防未來被感染,且不用冒著感染新冠肺炎的風險。

  • So, why haven't mRNA vaccines been used before?

    那為什麼以前不用 mRNA 疫苗?

  • While they are relatively new, researchers have actually been experimenting with them for decades.

    雖然他們是相對較新的疫苗,但研究人員其實已經試驗了幾十年,

  • But in the past, they've been very unstable.

    只是這些疫苗以前一直都很不穩定。

  • Enzymes in your body would break down the mRNA quickly, so they needed to be packaged well.

    體內的酶會迅速分解 mRNA,所以它們需要被妥善地包裝。

  • The ones being released now have the mRNA encased in lipid nanoparticles, which essentially protects the mRNA from being degraded.

    現在釋出的疫苗,mRNA 封裝於固體脂質納米粒中,這預防了 mRNA 被降解。

  • Since they are more unstable than other types of vaccines, they have to be kept cold.

    由於它們比其他疫苗更不穩定,所以必須低溫保存。

  • For example, the Pfizer vaccine has to be stored at minus 70 degrees Celsius, and at normal refrigerated temperatures, can only last five days.

    例如,輝瑞公司的疫苗必須保存在零下 70 攝氏度的環境, 在一般冷藏的情況下 只能保持 5 天。

  • Of course, a global pandemic has certainly increased the funding and resources going towards these types of vaccines, which has helped to accelerate their development.

    當然,全球的大流行確實增加了研發此類疫苗的資金和資源,有助於加快其發展。

  • What makes these vaccines so appealing is that unlike other vaccines, they can be made in a lab with readily available materials and actually made much quicker than other types of vaccines.

    這種疫苗如此吸引人的原因是,不同於其他疫苗, 它們可以在實驗室裡用現成的材料製成, 製作速度其實比其他類型的疫苗快得多。

  • Instead of fully developing non-infectious viruses and then injecting them, these mRNA vaccines can sort of pass many hurdles by using your own body in an ingenious way.

    與其充分研發非傳染性病毒並注射它們,這些 mRNA 疫苗巧妙地利用人體克服了許多障礙。

  • It's also far more cost-effective to create mRNA molecules rather than the proteins themselves and also a lot more scalable, which is helpful when we are in a global pandemic waiting for a vaccine.

    製造 mRNA 分子的成本效益也比蛋白質要高得多,可擴增性也較高, 這對在全球疫情中等待注射疫苗的我們來說有更有幫助。

  • So, is it safe?

    那它安全嗎?

  • And given that it's a relatively new technology, should you be concerned at all?

    鑑於這是一種較新的技術,你該不該擔心?

  • Well, that's what these initial trial stages have been for.

    這就是這些初期測試階段的目的。

  • Not only to test whether or not they work and cause immunity but to make sure they have minimal side effects.

    不僅僅是為了測試它們是否有效並激發免疫力,還要確保它們的副作用很小。

  • As of now, around 70,000 people have been given these vaccines with no serious concerns,

    截至目前為止,約有7萬人已經接種了這些疫苗,且沒有發生嚴重的問題,

  • a caveat being that the full research hasn't been published yet as of recording this video.

    值得注意的是,截至錄製這段視頻為止,完整的研究結果還沒有被公佈。

  • But it's important to remember that just because it's safe doesn't mean there won't be any soreness or pain.

    但重點是要記住,雖然它很安全,也不代表接種後不會痠痛或疼痛。

  • Some recipients did report aches and pains, and as of now, you'll need to receive two shots to ensure efficacy.

    有些接種者反應痠痛和疼痛現象,而且從現在開始,需要進行兩次注射以確保療效。

  • I saw a really great analogy by the professor, Shane Crotty, who works in vaccine research, and he said,

    我看到從事疫苗研究的 Shane Crotty 教授提出的精闢比喻:

  • "It's not unlike going to the gym and getting exercise and really sore muscles⏤a bit of pain can be a positive sign that good things are happening."

    「這和去健身房健身導致的肌肉痠痛沒甚麼兩樣 -輕微的疼痛可能是一個好的徵兆, 代表好事即將發生。」

  • "Sometimes you have to earn your immunity, just like you have to earn those biceps you wanted so bad."

    「有時候你得極力爭取免疫力,就像你得非常努力才能擁有你想要的二頭肌。」

  • We know you've been asking about these vaccines a lotwe have also had our questionsso we hope that all this information was useful and concise and educational for you, 'cause it does sort of help make things seem less unknown and scary in a very strange time.

    我們知道你們對於這些疫苗有很多疑問,我們之前也有過疑問, 所以我們希望這些資訊對你們有幫助, 簡潔明瞭並有教育意義, 因為在這個特殊時期,這些資訊的確有助於讓事情顯得沒有那麼地陌生和可怕。
