Study shows COVID-19 infection alters gene transcription of olfactory mucosal cells in Alzheimer’s disease

A new study identifies alterations in the transcriptomic signatures in human olfactory mucosal cells of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease following SARS-CoV-2 infection, potentially contributing to exacerbated COVID-19 outcomes. The study was conducted at the University of Eastern Finland in collaboration with the University of Helsinki and published in Journal of Neuroinflammation.
