Study Description

Clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP) is defined as the occurrence of an expanded proportion of mature blood cells derived from a mutant hematopoietic precursor without evidence of hematological malignancies. The principle behind this is that the somatic mutation confers a fitness advantage to the cell in which it arose. Different clinical consequences are linked with this expansion. Early evidence of an association with higher mortality risk was provided. This was not related to higher rates of cancer but was associated in particular with increased cardiovascular mortality. Mechanistically, inflammatory processes are not only related to the development of clonal hematopoiesis, but in turn it is also a driver of inflammation. Besides pulmonary symptoms, COVID-19 evokes complex extra-pulmonary manifestations driving the pathophysiology. Among them, both inflammatory and cardiac-associated mechanisms have been deciphered. With the aim of assessing the impact of clonal hematopoiesis on the pathophysiology of COVID-19, hospitalized patients with severe or critical ... (Show More)

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Amplicon sequencing data for 90 patients hospitalized for COVID-19. to general ward. Patients had a median age of 60.5 (52.0 – 69.3) years and were overweighted (Body mass index: 28.4 (24.4 – 32.6) kg/m2). 35.6% of the cohort were female. The following genes were sequenced on a NovaSeq600 instrument with an Enrichment based library preparation (IDT-xGEN) with a median coverage of 2000x: ABL1, ASXL1, ATRX, BCOR, BCORL1, BRAF, CALR, CBL, CBLB, CBLC, CDKN2A, CEBPA, CSF3R, CUX1, DNMT3A, ETV6, ...
