COVID-19 Studies

Children's National Hospital is currently enrolling children in a COVID-related study.

Long-Term COVID-19 Study

Children’s National is enrolling up to 2,000 children and young adults in a study that will examine the long-term effects of COVID-19 and multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C).

The study is designed to enroll children and young adults under 21 years of age who have a confirmed history of symptomatic or asymptomatic SARS CoV-2 infection or MIS-C. Participants who enroll within 12 weeks of acute infection will attend study visits every three months for the first six months and then every six months for three years. Participants who enroll more than 12 weeks after acute infection will attend study visits every six months for three years. The study will also enroll household contacts to serve as a control group, and parents or guardians (one parent per participant) will complete targeted questionnaires.
