Toward a Common Research Agenda in Infection - Associated Chronic Illnesses: A Workshop to Examine Common, Overlapping Clinical and Biological Factors

A number of chronic illnesses, from persistent Lyme disease to long COVID, have been associated with prior infectious disease. However, the pathogenesis mechanisms and link between infection and long-lasting symptoms remain poorly understood, leading to limited treatment options for the often debilitating symptoms of infection-associated chronic illnesses. This workshop aims to bring together clinicians, researchers, and other stakeholders to examine common biological and clinical factors associated with these chronic illnesses, discuss potential strategies to treat or prevent disease progression, and increase collaboration among stakeholders to build a community of shared priorities that can enhance patient care.
