Developing a test for long COVID 'brain fog'

Two blood biomarkers could be predictive of cognitive deficits six and 12 months after a diagnosis of COVID-19, reports a new study published in Nature Medicine. These findings, based on data from more than 1,800 patients ...

Novel regulatory mechanism of blood clotting discovered

Hemostasis is vital to prevent excessive blood loss. However, there is an increased risk for thrombosis if there is an excessive reaction and uncontrolled formation of fibrin. In a new study published in Nature Cardiovascular ...

Blood clot formation in cerebral cavernous malformations

In the condition known as cerebral cavernoma, lesions arise in a cluster of blood vessels in the brain. In a new study from Uppsala University, researchers show that blood coagulation and blood clot formation are very relevant ...

Severe COVID-19 increases risk of life-threatening blood clots

Individuals hospitalized with COVID-19 are more likely to develop venous thromboembolism—a potentially life-threatening condition—than those hospitalized with influenza, according to a new study from the Perelman School ...


Relative risk for CVT up after AZD1222 COVID-19 vaccine

The relative rates of hospital contacts for coagulation disorder and cerebrovascular disease are increased after AZD1222 COVID-19 vaccination, particularly for thrombocytopenia and cerebral venous thrombosis, according to ...

Possible discovery of mechanism behind mysterious COVID-19 symptoms

In patients with serious and long-term COVID-19, disturbed blood coagulation has often been observed. Now, researchers at Linköping University (LiU), Sweden, have discovered that the body's immune system can affect the spike ...

Endothelial cells play important role in blood clotting

When an injury occurs, coagulation proteins are integral to forming clots (thrombosis) and stopping bleeding (hemostasis). Dr. Clay Cohen, assistant professor of pediatric hematology and oncology at Baylor College of Medicine, ...
