Blood biomarker score identifies individuals at high risk for severe COVID-19 - metabolic profiling of 105,000 adults in the UK Biobank

Identification of healthy people at high risk for severe COVID-19 is a global health priority. This study investigated whether blood biomarkers measured by high-throughput metabolomics could be predictive of severe pneumonia and COVID-19 hospitalisation years after the blood sampling. Nightingale metabolomics was used to quantify a comprehensive biomarker profile in 105,146 plasma samples collected in the UK Biobank during 2007-2010 (age range 39-70).
