Our virtual Chronic COVID Treatment Center is led by the research of virologist and immunologist, Dr. Bruce Patterson, CEO of IncellDX and supported clinically by Drs. Ram Yogendra and Purvi Parikh. Along with our team, we are building a national network of physicians, nurse practitioners and other medical providers to provide a holistic and clinical approach to treatment.
Coughing and shortness of breath, debilitating fatigue, malaise and lethargy, cardiac dysrythmias, insomnia, joint pain, headaches, brain fog, memory and concentration problems, neuropathic pain, GI discomfort including diarrhea, loss of appetite and weight loss.
While there is anecdotal evidence and reports that there are some medications alleviating symptoms, we are still investigating and researching, and cannot make any conclusive statements yet.
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.
COVID-19 symptoms can last weeks and months in some patients who are now referred to as “long haulers” or “chronic COVID”.
