221 active trials for Sars Cov 2

A Phase III Clinical Study of a SARS-CoV-2 Messenger Ribonucleic Acid (mRNA) Vaccine Candidate Against COVID-19 in Population Aged 18 Years and Above

Approximately 28,000 subjects will be enrolled in this trial. Eligible subjects will be stratified by age (<60 years of age and ?60 years of age, the proportion of elderly people ?60 years old is planned to be ?25%) and randomly assigned into the study group and the control group at a ratio of 1:1 (14,000 in each group) to be intramuscularly administered with the investigational vaccine or placebo in a 2-dose regimen at an interval of 28 days. The experimental vaccines will be cross-vaccinated after available data of the investigational vaccine show that expected efficacy and good safety have been achieved (i.e., subjects in the study group will be vaccinated with placebo and those in the control group will be vaccinated with the investigational vaccine in the same schedule as stated above ). After the completion of the second dose for crossover vaccination, subjects will be followed up for 12 months for safety observation. An immunogenicity subgroup (n?3000) and a reactogenicity subgroup (n?6000) will also be included in this trial to evaluate the humoral immunity induced by the investigational vaccine and the solicited adverse events observed within 7 days post immunization. All enrolled subjects will be followed up for the evaluation of protective efficacy as well, which will be primarily characterized by the incidence rate (person-year) of COVID-19 cases collected from 14 days after complete series. Adverse events will be collected over 0-28 days after each vaccination and serious adverse events will be collected from Dose 1 through 12 months post complete series.

COVID-19 Pandemic Response Network

Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) represents an unprecedented challenge to the operations and population health management efforts of health care systems around the world. The "Pandemic Research Network (PRN): Duke Community Health Watch" study leverages technology, clinical research, epidemiology, telemedicine, and population health management capabilities to understand how to safely COVID-19. The target population is individuals in the Duke Health region as well as individuals beyond the Duke Health region who have flu-like symptoms, a viral test order for COVID-19, confirmed COVID-19, or concern for exposure to COVID-19. A subgroup of particular interest within the target population is health care workers (HCW) and families of HCW. Community members will enroll in the study electronically and for 28 days will be reminded via email or SMS to submit signs and symptoms related to COVID-19. Participants who report symptoms will be provided information about COVID-19 testing (if needed) and established mechanisms to seek care within Duke Health. Instructions for telemedicine and in-person visits, which is available publicly at https://www.dukehealth.org/covid-19-update, will be presented to participants. Participants who are unable to report symptoms independently may be contacted via telephone by Population Health Management Office (PHMO) or Clinical Events Classification (CEC) team members. Data collected through the "Pandemic Response Network (PRN): Duke Community Health Watch" study will be used for three objectives. First, to characterize the epidemiological features of COVID-19. Specifically, we will have a high-risk subgroup of HCW and families of HCW that we enroll. Second, to develop models that predict deterioration and the need for inpatient care, intensive care, and mechanical ventilation. Third, to develop forecast models to estimate the volume of inpatient and outpatient resources needed to manage a COVID-19 population. The primary risk to study participants is loss of protected health information. To address this concern, all data will be stored in Duke's REDCap instance and the Duke Protected Analytics Compute Environment (PACE).

Trial Evaluating the Efficacy of Local Budesonide Therapy in the Management of Hyposmia in COVID-19 Patients Without Signs of Severity

The initial symptoms described in the first cases of COVID-19 were mainly fever and respiratory signs. Recently, there has been an increase in cases of hyposmia without associated nasal obstruction or rhinorrhea. Although we do not yet know the long-term consequences of COVID-19 on olfaction, there is evidence in the literature demonstrating that post-viral hyposmias are an important source of long-term olfactory disorders, impacting quality of life. Usually, the treatment of viral hyposmias is based on local and/or general corticosteroid treatment combined with saline nasal irrigation at the onset of signs. Because of the possible development of severe forms of the SARS-Cov-2 infection, the French Society of Otorhinolaryngology has advised against treatment by corticosteroid therapy and nasal irrigation. However, as the virus is present in the nasal fossae on average for 20 days, persistent hyposmia at 30 days would probably result from an inflammatory or neurological damage to the nasal slits or olfactory bulb. Local treatment with corticosteroids could then be instituted from 30 days after the onset of symptoms of COVID-19 without risk of dissemination. In persistent hyposmia other than chronic rhinosinusitis, the only treatment that has proven its efficacy is nasal irrigation associated with budesonide and olfactory rehabilitation. However, this drug does not have marketing authorisation in France for this indication.
