Neuro COVIDResearch Question:
What lasting effect does COVID-19 have on the blood vessels in the brains of elderly
Basic Study Information
We are recruiting individuals 65 or older to learn more about how Covid impacts our
COVID is caused by a virus that enter many cells including cells of blood vessels.
This can make vessels leaky and in the brain this leakage can cause inflammation.
The damaged blood vessels are also more likely to form blood clots, causing tiny strokes.
The purpose of this study is to understand if after initial COVID infection these
leaky brain vessels fully recover or remain permanently damaged. If you decide to
take part in this study, you will be asked to come to the Clinical Research Center
(CRC) at URMC three different times: Baseline, 12 months, and 24 months - and you
will participate in two telephone calls over a 2 year period. At the baseline visit,
there is a blood draw and testing to assess your memory, attention, and movement (approximately
2.5 hours) as well as an MRI (approximately 1.5 hours). At the 12 month visit, there
is a blood draw and memory tests. At the 24 month visit, there is a blood draw, memory
testing, and an MRI.
