Rapid Screening of Physiological Changes Associated with COVID-19 Using Soft-Wearables and Structured Activities: A Pilot Study
Objective: Controlling the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic largely depends on scaling up the testing infrastructure for identifying infected individuals. Consumer-grade wearables may present a solution to detect the presence of infections in the population, but the current paradigm requires... Read more

A Framework for Biomarkers of COVID-19 Based on Coordination of Speech-Production Subsystems
Goal: We propose a speech modeling and signal-processing framework to detect and track COVID-19 through asymptomatic and symptomatic stages. Methods: The approach is based on complexity of neuromotor coordination across speech subsystems involved in respiration, phonation and articulation, motivated by... Read more

Plasmin cascade mediates thrombotic events in SARS-CoV-2 infection via complement and platelet-activating systems
Recently emerged beta-coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, has resulted in the current pandemic designated COVID-19. COVID-19 manifests as severe illness exhibiting systemic inflammatory response syndrome, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), thrombotic events, and shock, exacerbated further by co-morbidities and age. Recent clinical evidence... Read more
