Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 12 months?
Are you still experiencing:
• Memory problems?
• Sleep disturbance or fatigue?
• Difficulty focusing?
• Increased anxiety?
• Low mood?
• Other neurological symptoms?
If so, we would like to invite you to participate in the STRONGER study – Statin TReatment for COVID-19 to Optimise NeuroloGical recovERy.
This is an exciting international ‘long-COVID’ study run by The George Institute for Global Health. We will test if a statin medication, approved for use in lowering cholesterol, can help reduce ongoing neurological symptoms such as problems with memory and concentration, mood disturbances, fatigue and muscle weakness.
We are seeking adult participants who have tested positive for COVID-19 who have any ongoing neurological symptoms (listed above).
This study will involve taking a statin medication once a day for 18 months and attending 6 study visits in total (in-person clinic visit and/or telephone consultations) in this time.
Study sites are located at Brain and Mind Centre (Sydney) and Monash University (Melbourne). Remote participation via tele-health/videoconference is available to those who cannot travel to the study site.
