MedPage Today (2/4, George) reported brains of patients with COVID-19 “had some of the same pathological changes seen in Alzheimer’s disease, which may explain the memory problems people with long COVID experience, a small study suggested.” This study, which was “based on autopsies of 10 people who died with COVID-19, linked the inflammatory response found in SARS-CoV-2 infection with pathways causing tau hyperphosphorylation typically associated with Alzheimer’s disease, reported” researchers. The findings published in Alzheimer’s & Dementia “also indicated a role for leaky ryanodine receptor 2…in the pathophysiology of SARS-CoV-2 infection, the researchers wrote.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
