Biomarker suggests severity of COVID-19 respiratory distress: Higher levels of certain fatty acids predicted poorer outcomes in COVID-19 patients with acute respiratory distress in a new NIEHS-funded study led by Bruce Hammock
In a study funded in part by NIEHS, researchers reported April 1 that certain fatty acids in the blood of COVID-19 patients may predict the severity of adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The fatty acids may also offer a target for treatment. ARDS, characterized by fluid buildup in the lungs, is the second leading cause of death in COVID-19 patients, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
