Long-lasting post-COVID-19 sequelae and its overlap with ME/CSF: the role of immune system

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

Abstract

Key Scientific Concepts of Review. The onset, progression, and symptom profile of post COVID-19 patients have considerable overlap with ME/CFS. Considering the large scope and range of pro-inflammatory effects of this virus, it is reasonable to expect development of post COVID-19 clinical complications in a proportion of the affected population. There are indicators of a later onset debilitating syndrome with onset three months post- COVID-19 infection (often described as long-COVID-19) recognised as including fatigue, headache, cognitive dysfunction, post-exertional malaise, orthostatic intolerance, and dyspnoea. A cute inflammation, oxidative stress, and increased levels of IL-6 and TNFalpha, have been reported in SARS-CoV-2 infected patients. Longitudinal monitoring of post COVID-19 patients is warranted to understand the long-term effects of SARS-CoV-2 infection and the pathomechanism of post COVID-19.
