Altered gut microbiome composition in long COVID appears to be associated with persistent symptoms in many patients with post-acute COVID-19 syndrome (PACS). It may be particularly closely associated with one of the four major distinct subsets of long COVID symptoms recently identified as well as being implicated in others.
This call seeks research proposals intended to quantify and characterise the phenomena of altered gut microbiome in these patients and particularly those intended to identify mechanisms of action underlying this association and approaches to microbiota modulation to facilitate timely recovery and reduce the global burden of PACS.
