Covid Monitoring Profile

Covid-19 infection could be underlying trigger for many other health complications such as heart failure, respiratory failure, stroke, and inflammatory syndromes.
A comprehensive test package to monitor your immune system for evaluation of biomarkers which may lead to manifestation of disease after Covid-19 infection.

Why to monitor?

  • People, especially, who are being admitted to ICU after Covid-19 infection were observed to have higher level of components like IL-6, D-Dimer, Platelets, Neutrophils, CRP, Ferritin etc.
  • Elevated levels of these biomarkers in the plasma have found to be associated with higher chances of being hospitalised and with higher disease severity.
  • Higher CRP & IL-6 indicates severity of infection whereas elevated creatinine observed in severe cases indicated risk of impaired kidney & liver function.
  • Refractory patients with lung complications were observed to have higher LDH, CRP, & platelet count which indicate the relation of these biomarkers with disease progression.

Monitoring the levels of these components can help in better prognosis and management of infection.

D-Dimer : Small fragment protein which increases with formation and breakdown of clots in the body. D-Dimer testing in patients with Covid-19 is essential as it could be used as an early marker to improve the management of patients with Covid-19.

C-Reactive Protein (CRP) : Levels of CRP rises in response to inflammation in the body. Evaluation of infection and severity of inflammation could be done with measuring CRP levels.

Ferritin : As one of the makers of inflammation, ferritin levels highly correlate with the severity of Covid-19. The elevated levels could be an underlying reason for secondary health complications.

CBC : Different components of the blood are checked in order to improve the prognosis. Decreased levels of components like white blood cells, platelets and lymphocytes are linked to poor prognosis.

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) : Evaluation of IL-6 in the plasma can help in predicting & evaluating the outcome of the inflammatory syndrome and sepsis.

Creatinine : Evaluation of this component could help in assessing acute kidney injury and avoiding long-term kidney-related complications in patients with Covid-19.

Procalcitonin : Elevated levels of this component are associated with increased tissue injury, sepsis and infection, hence evaluation of this biomarker is crucial.

Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) : Evaluation of LDH in plasma can help in recognising cytokine-mediated tissue damage, which is associated with poor prognosis in Covid-19 patients.

N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNO) & Troponin-1 (Trop-1) : Evaluation of these biomarker is essential to monitor heart related issues/cardiac injuries. Elevated levels are found to be associated with poor prognosis.


What is the Covid-19 Monitoring Profile Test?

Covid-19 Monitoring Profile test monitors immune system biomarkers that help predict severe outcomes in Covid-19 patients. You can take the test from the safety and convenience of your home for early prognosis and management of infection.

Who should take the Covid-19 Monitoring Profile Test?

Once someone is detected with Covid-19 infection, the disease severity needs to be assessed early on. Patients who have been confirmed with Covid-19 infection and are under home care or hospital. These tests are essential to monitoring the patient’s health and vital organs. You can choose from the three packages as per the duration of the disease:

  • Day 1 to Day 5

  • Day 5 to Day 10

  • Before Discharge

What Biomarkers does Covid-19 Monitoring Profile Test Measure?

The Covid-19 Monitoring Test measures the following biomarkers to examine your immune system

  • D-Dimer
  • C-Reactive Protein (CRP)
  • Ferritin
  • CBC
  • Interleukin-6 (IL-6)
  • Creatinine
  • Procalcitonin
  • Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH)
  • Platelets
  • Neutrophils

Why are these Biomarkers important in the treatment of Covid-19?

These biomarkers are helpful in rapidly detecting the severity of Covid-19 infection. On the onset of symptoms, doctors can predict which course of treatment will benefit the patient. The Covid-19 Monitoring Test is useful for early identification and timely treatment of patients. In addition, these tests provide an indication of developing the critical condition during coronavirus recovery and progression.
