Blood Clotting Proteins Might Help Predict Long COVID Brain Fog

New research suggests that blood clotting from COVID infections could contribute to long-term brain fog and other cognitive issues By Sara Reardon on September 1, 2023 Scientific American Many people who have long COVID—a condition in which health issues persist months after infection—report struggling with “brain fog,” recurring memory and concentration lapses that make it difficult­­ to function […]

Striking drop in stress hormone cortisol predicts Long Covid in US study

Authors: Bloomberg/The Strait Times August 11, 2022 Striking decreases in the stress hormone cortisol were the strongest predictor for who develops long Covid in new research that identified several potential drivers of the lingering symptoms afflicting millions of survivors. Levels of cortisol in the blood of those with the so-called post Covid-19 condition were roughly half […]

SARS-CoV-2 genomics and host cellular susceptibility factors of COVID-19

Authors: FENGYU ZHANG AND MICHAEL D WATERS Coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) caused by infection with a novel severe acute respiratory syndrome virus -2 (SARS-CoV-2) has evolved into a pandemic and a global public health emergency. The viral genomics, host cellular factors, and interactions are critical for establishing a viral infection and developing a related disease. […]

A comprehensive map of the SARS-CoV-2 genome

Authors: Anne Trafton | MIT News Office In early 2020, a few months after the Covid-19 pandemic began, scientists were able to sequence the full genome of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the Covid-19 infection. While many of its genes were already known at that point, the full complement of protein-coding genes was unresolved. Now, after performing […]
