Covid long : aidez les chercheurs à mieux le connaître

@forumlibre
www.inserm.fr/actualite/covid-long-aidez-les-chercheurs-a-mieux-le-connaitre/

Les connaissances sur le Covid long et son retentissement sur la vie des personnes qui en souffrent sont encore limitées. Si vous êtes concernés, vous pouvez faire progresser ces connaissances en participant à l’étude Covilev. Conduite par le réseau Sentinelles (Inserm/Sorbonne Université), cette étude vise à mieux décrire le Covid long pour, à terme, améliorer sa prise en charge.

Depuis 2020, une partie des personnes qui ont contracté la Covid-19 présente des symptômes persistants au-delà de trois mois : on parle alors de « Covid long ». Les connaissances sur ce trouble sont encore limitées et le retentissement sur la vie des personnes reste à évaluer. Dans ce contexte, l’étude Covilev vise à mieux décrire les différents symptômes associés au Covid long ainsi que leur fréquence, à mesurer l’impact de la maladie sur la qualité de vie (vie quotidienne, santé mentale, activités professionnelles et familiales), et à détailler le parcours de soins et les modalités de prise en charge des personnes qui en souffrent.

Dans ce but, Covilev va suivre pendant un an des personnes qui souffrent de Covid long, qu’elles aient ou non consulté un médecin généraliste pour ce motif. Ce suivi se déroulera entièrement ligne, par le biais de questionnaires (5 au total) auxquels les participants devront répondre une fois tous les trois mois.

COVID-19 found to increase risk of hospitalization, death in multiple sclerosis (MS): Study.

Researchers say findings in England show threat 'still very real for many'

"With new variants constantly emerging, people living with MS should be considered an important high-risk group for COVID-19 hospitalization and death for which additional preventive measures and multilayered public health protections are urgently needed"

It is almost funny to find out that trans people are more likely not only get covid, but die from it, or get worse outcomes - like long lasting disabilities.

If you care about trans people, and are an ally...a thing you could do to support us is to wear a good mask (N95/FFP2+). Protect yourself and others. It is the compassionate thing to do.

And if you are trans yourself - please stay safe.

study that reveals how SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19, hijacks lung cells, leading to severe symptoms. Researchers found that the virus activates a specific signaling pathway in lung cells, resulting in inflammation and lung damage. Understanding this mechanism could help develop targeted treatments to mitigate COVID-19 severity.

Yet another good reason to avoid repeat infections...

COVID can quietly linger in your body long after getting sick. What does that mean?

researchers analyzed blood samples from 171 adults who had been infected by the virus. They found that one-quarter of these people had COVID proteins in their blood up to one year after their initial infection.

My blood type is A+, so of course, this STUDY found that type "might be more susceptible to with significantly higher severity or mortality rate of disease." The O + blood group might be less susceptible, with longer survival and less severity of disease. It's a fairly small study, however--just 101 patients.

All vaccines carry some risk of side effects. Some argue, without demonstrable evidence, that the bivalent caused heart problems. A new STUDY refutes that: "This population-based study provides evidence that bivalent COVID-19 mRNA vaccination is not associated with risk of myocarditis/pericarditis."

People learn nothing from the pandemic. It's a lovely 60° day in Milwaukee, so I spent the afternoon enjoying a couple of beers with my spouse. We visited bars that could have had their windows open, but didn't. Almost none had patio/outdoor tables set up. And the few that did have outdoor tables had nobody sitting outside (except us). Everyone was indoors, in terrible crowds, on a beautiful afternoon. Make it make sense.

is at its lowest point in 8 months in the US. But one concerning trend is that our "low points" are getting less low. Lowest points each year based on wastewater monitoring:

2021: May: 40 copies/ml
2022: March: 111 copies/ml
2023: June: 165 copies/ml
2024 (thus far): April: 320 copies/ml

We're a long way from the 1,100 to 1,300 copies/ml seen in surges the last two years, but the rejection of vaccines, normal behaviors, and reinfections are worrisome. https://biobot.io/data/

No one can tell us if this trend in ever-higher "low" points will continue for . That will depend on the effectiveness and uptake of future vaccines, how COVID mutates, and other factors. But, if we continue to see our "lows" rise 50% or more each year, we're just four years away from our "lows" looking more like our past surges. With lower fatality rates, people think this isn't a big deal, but with rising risks of Long COVID from reinfections, this could be a massive deal.

One of the things I've learned reading ~1,500 research reports on is the importance of REALLY reading them and not just relying on the conclusion. Here's an example: This study finds "there was no evidence of an association between COVID-19 and adverse perinatal outcomes." Great, huh? Not so fast: "COVID-19 in the first trimester was associated with fetal death, RR=2.36 (95% CI 1.04, 5.36)." That means fetal death is 236% more likely! Crazy conclusion! https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/38604636/

Read a study that shows how easy it is for people to misunderstand (or deliberately misinterpret) research findings: The study found that "individuals who did NOT seek medical care in the 4–12 week period after infection had a higher chance of early recovery." This suggests seeing a doctor is a problem, but what it really means is that people with more serious COVID symptoms (who are more inclined to seek medical care) are less likely to recover quickly. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-024-59122-3
