The National Institutes of Health’s Researching COVID to Enhance Recovery (RECOVER) Initiative opened enrollment for clinical trials to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of at least four potential treatments for Long COVID in adults. The project expects to launch trials to test at least seven more treatments in coming months, informed by findings from its other research over the past two years.

“Recognizing that more than one solution is likely needed, we’ve taken the lessons learned from RECOVER participants to design rigorous clinical trial platforms that will identify treatments for persons with different symptom clusters to improve their function and well-being,” said Walter Koroshetz, M.D., director of the NIH’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

In related news, the Department of Health and Human Services today officially launched its Office of Long COVID Research and Practice to coordinate and lead the federal response to Long COVID.
