  • COVID-19 and abnormalities of some biochemical tests
  • Coronaviruses are a group of viruses proven to affect both respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases in varied animal and human organisms. More than 100 million people worldwide are currently believed to have been infected and more than two million people have died and induced clinical syndrome of coronavirus disease in 2019.It's (COVID-19).

    The purpose of this analysis was to determine whether multiple biochemical test derangements are a common feature in patients with reported COVID-19 infection, to determine the relationship between the deranged liver test and lipoprotein with COVID-19 outcome or severity, and to determine whether liver failure or dyslipidemia is a common feature of COVID-19.

    This review was conducted using the Web of Science, PubMed and Scopus databases. English case-series and cross-sectional papers were considered, describing the currently offered findings on the relationship between certain biomedical tests and COVID-19 infections. To summarize, COVID-19 may have a severe tendency in older patients biochemical indexes (decrease albumin, decrease LDL-c, HDL-c, and TC, increased CRP, increased AST, increased LDH and CK) could be used as indicators to predict the severity of the disease.
