NIH Resource: Study Looks for Long COVID Risk Factors
In a study supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse, researchers enrolled 209 people ages 18 to 89 who had laboratory-confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infections. The participants’ COVID-19 experiences ranged from having mild symptoms and never having to be hospitalized to needing mechanical ventilation in the intensive care unit. With the participants’ consent, researchers studied their electronic health records, interviewed them about their symptoms, and took blood samples. All participants were asked to come back 60 and 90 days after their initial COVID-19 symptoms started. The researchers compared the 209 patients with people who had not had COVID-19 and checked their findings against a separate group of 100 people who had COVID-19 and were 60 to 90 days beyond developing their initial symptoms.
