Description

Summary

This research study will evaluate the association of Androgen Receptor (AR) gene expression and COVID-19 disease severity and mortality. The research procedure involves collection of a single saliva sample which will be mailed to the participants by the study team. This saliva will be used in a COVID-19 Androgen Sensitivity Test (CoVAST) which will detect AR gene expression. Eligible participants are males, at least 18 years or older, and have tested positive for COVID-19.
