COVID-19 clinical trial seeks more volunteers

Posted on:

Some people who were hospitalised with COVID-19 are still struggling to get back to normal. But the good news is that research is underway to explore treatments which are more effective in helping people fully recover their health.

The Clinical Trials Unit at the University of Warwick is running a research trial to explore which of two treatments is most effective for people who are struggling with health issues months after being ill with COVID-19.

Their trial, known as REGAIN, is researching rehabilitation exercise and psychological support after COVID infection and the team is looking for more volunteers.
