Researchers at the University of Edinburgh aim to understand the genetic susceptibility to coronavirus infection. They will also examine the genetic influences on the severity and outcomes of coronavirus, particularly for less severe cases. The focus will not just be individuals who are admitted to hospital and critical care.

They are looking for both participants who are suffered from COVID-19 and those who have not. People who have not contracted the disease or had symptoms are just as important to the study as people who have.

The University of Edinburgh are running a study called ELVIS COVID-19 to find out if nasal washout and gargling with salt water helps individuals with COVID-19 get better faster by helping to ease the symptoms of the virus.

If you have developed symptoms of COVID-19 including a continuous cough or high temperature or loss of sense of smell or taste within the past 48 hours, the study team would appreciate your help with this study.

Other Studies ongoing in South East of Scotland

Understanding cognitive decline after stroke and the impact of COVID-19

People affected by stroke report that memory and thinking problems are amongst their greatest concerns. Stroke and vascular dementia are closely related but traditionally have been studied as separate processes and this has delayed advances in knowledge and treatment. A more 'joined-up' study would help.

PROFILE - personalised medicine in Crohn's disease

Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that can affect any part of the intestine. The severity of Crohn’s disease varies a lot between different people, and this means that what might be the best treatment for one person may not be appropriate for someone else. This study will see whether a simple blood test (‘biomarker’) can improve Crohn’s disease outcomes and reduce the number of flares experienced by enabling delivery of ‘personalised therapy’ (that is, treatment tailored to the individual person based on their predicted disease course and severity).

Lowering Events in Non-proliferative retinopathy in Scotland

The aim of this study is to evaluate if fenofibrate therapy will slow the progression of diabetic retinopathy.

Enroll -HD: A Prospective Registry Study in a Global Huntington's Disease Cohort

The primary objective of Enroll-HD is to develop a comprehensive repository of prospective and systematically collected clinical research data (demography, clinical features, family history, genetic characteristics) and biological specimens (blood) from individuals with manifest HD, unaffected individuals known to carry the HD mutation or at risk of carrying the HD mutation, and control research participants (e.g., spouses, siblings or offspring of HD mutation carriers known not to carry the HD mutation).

A Research Study to Compare Two Types of Insulin, a New Insulin, Insulin Icodec and an Available Insulin, Insulin Glargine, in People With Type 2 Diabetes Who Have Not Used Insulin Before

Add-Aspirin: A Trial Assessing the Effects of Aspirin on Disease Recurrence and Survival After Primary Therapy in Common Non Metastatic Solid Tumours

Add-Aspirin aims to assess whether regular aspirin use after standard curative therapy can prevent recurrence and improve survival in individuals with non-metastatic common tumours.
