JOINT RESEARCH EFFORT POINTS TO POSSIBLE GENETIC VARIATION THAT PRE-DISPOSES COVID-19 PATIENTS TO DEVELOP SEVERE SYMPTOMS

IRVINE, Calif., April 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — In a joint research effort studying the genetics of the androgen receptor in androgenetic alopecia, scientists discover a possible genetic variation that pre-disposes COVID-19 patients to develop severe symptoms. The team led by Andy Goren, MD Chief Medical Officer at Applied Biology and Medical Advisor to the Department of Dermatology of the Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Carlos G. Wambier, MD, PhD Director of Cosmetic Research at the Department of Dermatology of the Alpert Medical School of Brown University and John McCoy, PhD Vice President of R&D at Applied Biology along with a team of collaborators from other institutions submitted their discovery
