COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This is a prospective, observational cohort study of all patients at St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney who test positive for COVID-19 infection. The cohort will consist of two components.
Cohort A - Mild disease patients recruited through the community cohorts
Cohort B - Moderate-severe patients recruited through the inpatient service at St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney.
Each patient shall be followed for a period of 12 months from the time of COVID-19 diagnosis. The study will run for 2 years in total.
The study will examine the short, medium and long term effects of COVID-19 on the immune system. The study will also examine how the immune system responds to COVID-19 to form antibodies and the long-term effects of COVID-19 on heart, lung and brain function and also a person’s mental health and effect on a person’s activities of daily living.

Statistical methods / analysis
Descriptive statistics will be summarised by median (IQR) and counts (percentage total). Differences between groups will be compared using the Student’s T test for continuous variables and the Chi-Square test for categorical variables. Logistic regression analysis will be performed to measure the association between continuous predictors and binary outcome variables. Will intend to account for potential bias by running multivariate logistic and Cox Regression models by adjusting models for the presence of absence of confounding variables.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of this observational study is to evaluate the effects of COVID-19 on the immune system, heart, lung, brain function and mental health of patients of St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney. Patients will attend the hospital six times over the 12 months following their COVID-19 diagnosis to be monitored by their Doctor and to provide blood samples, collect swabs and complete questionnaires. Overall, the study will increase our knowledge to better understand how the body responds to COVID-19 and provide valuable information to improve care for people with this infection in the future.
