COVID-19 Prospective Registry of Neurological Sequelae
Local Investigator: Alessandra Del Felice
To date, there are no systematic reports of specific subacute or chronic complications post-COVID-19 infection. We need to remain vigilant to post-COVID-19 sequelae, with well-designed follow-up studies and surveillance, which may be achieved by linkage to national health databases. To accelerate knowledge building on COVID-19, the University of Melbourne, Sichuan University, University of Padova, UCL and Stichting Epilepsie Instellingen Nederland are collaborating to set up an international, collaborative, and open-access registry to follow prospectively large numbers of individuals who recover from COVID-19. Data sharing and international collaboration are particularly important and beneficial, when considering the gaps in research capabilities in countries with limited resources such as Africa, India and Latin America, where COVID-19 is raging now.

The database is under construction and will be available to any identified ORCID researcher for data sharing.

ITA: Il progetto vuole studiare la prevalenza degli effetti a lungo termine a carico del sistema nervoso centrale in un campione di soggetti negativizzati e dimessi a domicilio dopo infezione da COVID-19. I soggetti verranno monitorati clinicamente e strumentalmente: verrà quantificata l'attività cerebrale a riposo e durante il sonno, i sintomi affettivi (es. depressione) e le funzioni cognitive (es. attenzione/memoria/funzioni esecutive).

EN:The project aims at identifying long-term central nervous system (CNS) sequelae in people who recovered from COVID-19. We will follow-up with clinical, neuropsychological and neurophysiological investigation this cohort.
