Long-term complications after coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are common in hospitalized patients, but the spectrum of symptoms in milder cases needs further investigation. We conducted a long-term follow-up in a prospective cohort study of 312 patients-247 home-isolated and 65 hospitalized-comprising 82% of total cases in Bergen during the first pandemic wave in Norway. At 6 months, 61% (189/312) of all patients had persistent symptoms, which were independently associated with severity of… Expand
Long COVID in hospitalized and non-hospitalized patients in a large cohort in Northwest Spain, a prospective cohort study
TLDR
Persisting symptoms are common after COVID-19 especially in hospitalized patients compared to outpatients, and special attention and clinical follow-up after acute SARS-CoV-2 infection should be provided for hospitalized patients with previous lung diseases, tobacco consumption, and females. Expand
Long-term clinical follow-up of patients suffering from moderate-to-severe COVID-19 infection: a monocentric prospective observational cohort study
TLDR
The prevalence of persisting symptoms following hospitalization for COVID-19 is high and stable up to six months after discharge, however, biological, functional and iconographic abnormalities significantly improved overtime. Expand
Phenotyping of acute and persistent COVID-19 features in the outpatient setting: exploratory analysis of an international cross-sectional online survey
TLDR
The consistent findings of two independent cohorts further delineate patterns of acute and post-acute COVID-19 and emphasize the importance of symptom phenotyping of home-isolated CO VID-19 patients to predict protracted convalescence and to allocate medical resources. Expand

Background The full range of long-term health consequences of COVID-19 in patients who are discharged from hospital is largely unclear. The aim of our study was to comprehensively compareExpand
Post COVID-19 Syndrome (“Long COVID”) and Diabetes: Challenges in Diagnosis and Management
TLDR
The aim of the brief review is to summarise current knowledge of health events occurring after COVID-19 in brief and relate them for patients with diabetes. Expand
Longitudinal immune dynamics of mild COVID-19 define signatures of recovery and persistence
TLDR
Signals associated with recovery and convalescence are characterized to define a new signature of inflammatory cytokines, gene expression, and chromatin accessibility that persists in individuals with post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC). Expand
Markers of immune activation and inflammation in individuals with post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection
TLDR
Persistent immune activation may be associated with ongoing symptoms following COVID-19 and further characterization of these processes might identify therapeutic targets for those experiencing PASC. Expand
Increasing incidence of parosmia and phantosmia in patients recovering from COVID-19 smell loss
Importance: Sudden smell loss is a specific early symptom of COVID-19, with an estimated prevalence of ~40% to 75%. Smell impairment affects physical and mental health, and dietary behavior. Thus, itExpand

Surviving COVID-19 in Bergamo province: a post-acute outpatient re-evaluation
TLDR
Survivors of COVID-19 exhibit a complex array of symptoms, whose common underlying pathology, if any, has still to be elucidated: a multidisciplinary approach is fundamental to address the different problems and to look for effective solutions. Expand
6-month consequences of COVID-19 in patients discharged from hospital: a cohort study
TLDR
The aim of this study was to describe the long-term health consequences of patients with COVID-19 who have been discharged from hospital and investigate the associated risk factors, in particular disease severity. Expand
Remdesivir for the Treatment of Covid-19 — Final Report
TLDR
The data show that remdesivir was superior to placebo in shortening the time to recovery in adults who were hospitalized with Covid-19 and had evidence of lower respiratory tract infection. Expand
Clinical course and risk factors for mortality of adult inpatients with COVID-19 in Wuhan, China: a retrospective cohort study
TLDR
Prolonged viral shedding provides the rationale for a strategy of isolation of infected patients and optimal antiviral interventions in the future. Expand
Post-COVID-19 Symptom Burden: What is Long-COVID and How Should We Manage It?
TLDR
It is suggested that the phenomenon of Long-COVID may not be directly attributable to the effect of SARS-CoV-2, and believe the biopsychosocial effects of COVID-19 may play a greater role in its aetiology. Expand
Post-infectious fatigue syndrome in dengue infection.

  • 2007
TLDR
This observation represents the first systematic evidence that dengue can result in clinical disease beyond the acute phases of infection, and increased age, female sex, the presence of chills, and the absence of rashes were significantly associated with the development of fatigue post-dengue infection. Expand
Acute infectious mononucleosis: characteristics of patients who report failure to recover.
TLDR
It was not able to identify objective measures that characterized self-reported failure to recover from acute infectious mononucleosis, and future studies should assess the generalizability of these findings and determine whether interventions can hasten recovery. Expand
Convergent Antibody Responses to SARS-CoV-2 in Convalescent Individuals
TLDR
Most convalescent plasma samples obtained from individuals who recover from COVID-19 do not contain high levels of neutralizing activity, and rare but recurring RBD-specific antibodies with potent antiviral activity were found in all individuals tested, suggesting that a vaccine designed to elicit such antibodies could be broadly effective. Expand
SARS-CoV-2 viral load is associated with increased disease severity and mortality
TLDR
It is reported that a higher prevalence of detectable SARS-CoV-2 plasma viral load is associated with worse respiratory disease severity, lower absolute lymphocyte counts, and increased markers of inflammation, including C-reactive protein and IL-6. Expand
Extrapulmonary manifestations of COVID-19
TLDR
The extrapulmonary organ-specific pathophysiology, presentations and management considerations for patients with COVID-19 are reviewed to aid clinicians and scientists in recognizing and monitoring the spectrum of manifestations, and in developing research priorities and therapeutic strategies for all organ systems involved.
