PA Hospital lung cancer researcher Dr Arutha Kulasinghe has collaborated with local and overseas researchers to identify a genetic marker called IFI27 in the lung tissue and blood of people with Covid-19 which can be used to identify how severe the virus is likely to be in Covid-19 patients and signal whether they need to be hospitalised or are able to quarantine at home. Sydney-based company SpeeDx are now developing a blood test that could be used by an infected person, early on in their symptoms, as a guide to how bad their infection will be. | https://www.pafoundation.org.au/news/36/covid-19-studies-advanced-thanks-to-cancer-research
