Project Description

physiopathologie

Summary:

The purpose is to better understand hyperlactatemia mechanisms in covid-19 infections so as to verify its relevance as a prognostic indicator of the patient’s health status. If this hypothesis is confirmed, new therapeutic approaches could be considered, as well as a more adapted deployment of the care offer.

This project was created in conjunction with the medical intensive care unit (Pr Favory and the Lille Intensive care covid-19 study group) and scientific teams from the Université de Lille, Dr Steve Lancel from Pr Boulanger’s team at INSERM UMR- 1167 unit headed by Pr Amouyel and the virology laboratory with Dr Anne Goffard.

Objective:

The objective is to measure metabolic parameters in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and whole blood to determine whether mitochondrial abnormalities are associated with hospital prognosis.
