Autopsy and clinical findings lead to a clinical trial to treat abnormal blood clotting in COVID-19

Amy Rapkiewicz, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Pathology: A few weeks ago, we began to notice signs of abnormal blood clotting in autopsies of people who had been hospitalized with COVID-19. Clots restrict blood flow, injuring surrounding tissue, and can break free and travel to other organs, leading to respiratory arrest, heart attack, or stroke—all known causes of death in COVID-19 patients.
