Project Details

Description

The immunopathological mechanisms or pathways related to the development of post-COVID syndrome (PCS) are not fully known. One of the mechanisms that could be associated with the maintenance of the inflammatory state after the SARS-CoV-2 infection is resolved is the NETosis process. Therefore, the study of neutrophil extracellular traps-NETs could shed some light on the development of this syndrome. Thus, the use of therapies that control NETosis and neutrophil recruitment could be considered for the management of SPC.
