Houston pathologists hoping autopsy research will help unlock new COVID-19 treatments
HOUSTON Pathologists in the Texas Medical Center are at the forefront of trying to unlock new treatments for COVID-19 patients by studying how people die from the virus. Buja said a large part of the panic came from a lack of treatments for this virus. Buja and his colleagues are leading and effort to pool the knowledge gained from autopsies on those whove died from COVID-19. Buja says this research will hopefully guide doctors to develop comprehensive treatments faster, to help mitigate these complications. In fact, he said the first autopsy he did was on a COVID-19 victim with no known health problems.
