  • Long COVID


COVID-19 results in chronic disease in 10-30% of patients, including fatigue, brain fog, headache, difficulty breathing, dizziness, and more. This chronic disease is referred to as COVID-19 Long Haulers. Many of the signs and symptoms associated with Long Haulers are similar to those seen in COPD or pulmonary fibrosis patients, for which N115, the drug tested here, has already completed phase 3 clinical trials. This study will examine the effects of N115 (Sodium pyruvate nasal spray) treatment on the symptoms associated with COVID-19 Long Haulers.
