When Ezra Spier was diagnosed with long COVID in late 2022, his main symptom, postexertional malaise, caused fatigue so severe that it forced him to quit his job as a technology entrepreneur. Since then, it's been a tough road for Spier, 37, who said he wouldn't wish his hellish condition on anyone.

Last spring, he enrolled in a clinical trial of a new long COVID therapy at Stanford University, and he's about to start another at the University of California, San Francisco.

For Spier, who lives in Oakland, California, being part of the clinical trials connected him with people dealing with similar health issues while also moving the needle toward better treatments for everyone. Yet many potential participants are unaware that these clinical trials exist. Clinical trial researchers also express frustration over the challenge of enrolling participants.

That's why Spier created a new website to help match long COVID patients with clinical trials that can help. Head over to Medscape to read the full story.
