Severe covid 19 disease is characterized by excessive immune and inflammatory processes in the body. Conversely, long covid syndrome is likely to have a strong anti-inflammatory immune status. Scientists have now found this out with extensive blood plasma analyses of vaccinated persons without subsequent disease, persons with completely survived covid 19 infection and long covid patients. The scientific work of the team led by study director Christopher Gerner from the Faculty of Chemistry at the University of Vienna and researchers from MedUni Vienna has now been published as a pre-proof in the open access online journal "iScience".

MedUni Vienna's Department of Anaesthesia, General Intensive Care Medicine and Pain Therapy is the first hospital in Austria to become a certified Data Partner with the EHDEN project. This highlights the clinic's position as a leading institution in the field of data science and big data.
