Experts said what they expected in this study “Confirm or rule out a relationship between this virus and the risk of developing cardiovascular disease” because these conditions are “one of the leading causes of death in our country and the world.”
As a result, the research results “They provide critical information for decision-making and create preventative public health strategies that focus on populations at greatest risk.” Declared the director of the project.
How can I participate in research?
Researchers hope to bring together 400 volunteers according to emor,to this 1.5 year follow-up a period in which there are only two interactions with the patient.
Those participating in the research medical evaluation and testing , will be completely free. Samples taken for research are Temuco in Center of Excellence for Translational Medicine UFRO (CEMT), Santiago with the dependencies of FALPMore ,and Punta Arenas in Education Support and Research Center UMAG’s (CADI) has designated the university on its website.
For the requirements of those who wish to volunteer, they must meet between 30 and 70 years old , not diagnosed with diabetes before the pandemic world Not hyperthyroid or hypothyroid they specified.
