Description of project: We are conducting an exploratory study to assess the association between sound digital biomarkers and COVID-19 and its progression. Our goal is to evaluate the feasibility of developing a robust method of COVID-19 risk screening based on vocal biomarkers.
Terms of collaboration: Besides the transfer of data, we would like to collaborate and/or get advice from the data provider. We are happy to discuss the terms of the collaboration as well as the research itself with any potential collaborator..
Detailed description of data: We are aiming for a prospective multi-center cohort study enrolling participants meeting the clinical criteria to be tested for COVID-19. We want to record voluntary cough, breath (inhaling and exhaling) and speech of the participants together with test results and demographic data. Additional data such as comorbidities, outcomes, medications, as well as the collection of sound samples in different points of the disease progression are desirable but not required. The study is prospective but we do not rule out retrospective inclusion of participants when applicable (for example, in an epidemiological study tracking healthy persons). Here is a draft of our protocol.
Handling of personal/confidential information:
We prefer that the data is anonymized at the source. Comprehensive measures will be taken to rule out risk of re-identification of participants.
Status of ethical approval:
A project including these data has been submitted to an ethical committee and is waiting for approval. The requester is willing to work with the data provider to seek ethical approval at their institution.
