Chronic COVID Treatment Center™

Research, Prediction, Diagnosis and Treatment for Chronic COVID-19

A novel integrated Chronic COVID Treatment Center™ has been established through a collaboration between prominent research facilities, clinicians, and medical laboratories to integrate world-class specialized immunological lab testing, expert medical consultation and patient counseling, to help optimize treatment for both the physical and emotional aspects of patients recovering from COVID-19.

FREQUENTY ASKED QUESTIONS

Clinical

What is Chronic COVID and who are “long haulers”?
COVID-19 symptoms can last weeks and months in some patients who are now referred to as “long haulers” or “chronic COVID”.
Is there a medical definition for Chronic COVID-19?
According to the British Medical Journal, post-acute COVID-19 or “long COVID” is defined as symptoms 3 weeks after the initial onset of symptoms. Chronic COVID-19 are symptoms extending 12 weeks from the initial onset of first symptoms.
How many COVID-19 patients become long haulers?
Research published in The Journal of the American Medical Association estimates 10-30% of COVID-19 patients become long haulers.
What are some common symptoms of chronic COVID-19/ long haulers?
Coughing and shortness of breath, debilitating fatigue, malaise and lethargy, cardiac dysrhythmias, insomnia, joint pain, headaches, brain fog, memory and concentration problems, neuropathic pain, GI discomfort including diarrhea, loss of appetite and weight loss.
Why do long haulers continue to experience these long-term symptoms?
One common theory is that there is viral persistence, inactivated viral fragments, or reactivation of a latent virus. While research is still ongoing to make any conclusive statements, we do believe that the etiology is an immune state caused by pro-inflammatory cytokines.
What are cytokines?
Using IncellDx’s patented kit, we are measuring immune markers and cytokines. Cytokines are immunoregulatory proteins made by immune cells to communicate, signal and coordinate immune responses. Cytokines are produced by a broad range of cells including T-cells, B-cells, macrophages, and endothelial cells and play an important role in the regulation of the immune system. However, in certain conditions and pathologies, elevated cytokines can contribute to hyperinflammatory states, which we believe is the underlying cause behind chronic COVID-19.

Lab

How can I be evaluated for treatment, request treatment or get more information?
You can sign up through a portal on the landing page and receive a logistics and protocol sheet. The labs will contact you on how to receive the kit and get your blood work to them for analysis.
How is your process unique?
Our panel collectively evaluates cytokines known to be involved in chronic COVID-19 and was developed using an algorithm established on a large, long-hauler patient population. Other labs evaluate only a few of the cytokines in our panel.
According to the British Medical Journal, post-acute COVID-19 or “long COVID” is defined as symptoms 3 weeks after the initial onset of symptoms. Chronic COVID-19 are symptoms extending 12 weeks from the initial onset of first symptoms.
Tell me more about the scientific and medical validation for your process.
Our process is based on decades of research on viral pathogens that impair the immune system’s ability to function effectively, including Dr. Patterson’s research on COVID-19 and other disease models.
How long will it take me to receive my results?
Initially, the lab is quoting 2-3 weeks from receipt of sample for results because of the backlog. They plan to process the samples faster over time as they get all systems in place and start to receive back the kits they are shipping out. The goal is to get the turnaround to 1-2 weeks by the first of May.
Is your test reimbursed?
Reimbursement of any lab test varies depending on your insurance coverage. You will be provided with relevant CPT codes to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement consideration

OUR PROCESS: SUPPORT ARTICLES

As the emerging leader in understanding, predicting, diagnosing and addressing the underlying causes of long haul covid, we are dedicated to identifying, treating and supporting people with chronic post-COVID symptoms. Our team is led by renowned virologist Dr. Bruce Patterson and supported clinically by Drs. Ram Yogendra and Purvi Parikh and a national network of physicians, nurse practitioners and other medical providers.
