Corona Virus Hyperinflammation project

The Newcastle Joint Research Office (NJRO) has been involved in the conception of a UK-wide database to provide rapid reporting on the incidence of hyper-inflammation in COVID-19 and the association with adverse outcome and potential to be modulated by intervention with biologic therapy. The database provides a rapid means of collating information from multiple sites.

The Corona Virus Hyperinflammation (COV-HI) project is led by Jessica Manson (UCLH) and Rachel Tattersall (Sheffield), both founders of the UK HLH (Haemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis) cross speciality collaboration with Matthew Collin (Newcastle) and Epidemiologists Colin Crooks and Joe West (Nottingham).
