There is one clinical trial.
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a current pandemic infection caused by an RNA virus called Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). Severe forms of COVID-19 are most often responsible for isolated respiratory failure in the form of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which accounts for most of the mortality. Angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) has been shown to be a co-receptor for the entry of SARS-CoV-2 into cells and is likely to play a prolonged role in the pathogenesis of COVID-19. ACE2 and angiotensin (1-7) have been shown to be protective in a number of different lung lesion models. In a mouse model of acidic lung injury, negative regulation of ACE2 by COVID, the SARS virus responsible for the 2003 SARS outbreak, worsened the lung injury which was improved by treatment with ARBs. We believe that blocking the first RAS pathway at the end of the chain on the AT1r angiotensin 2 receptor may prevent the initiation of this chain reaction and limit decompensation secondary to the disruption of the equilibrium of the renin-angiotensin system. We have several molecules that block the AT1r angiotensin-2 receptor (ARBs) as well as a molecule that blocks the secretion of aldosterone (spironolactone). The main objective is to demonstrate the value of losartan and spironolactone therapy in the regulation of the renin-angiotensin system in improving the prognosis of patients infected with COVID-19 and suffering from acute respiratory distress syndrome. This is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, open-label, controlled, therapeutic trial studying two parallel groups. The population included in this study is any major patient in acute respiratory distress hospitalized in intensive care requiring oxygen support of at least 6L/min and suffering from a PCR-confirmed SARS-cov2 infection. The control group will benefit from the usual resuscitation management of COVID19 , and the experimental group will benefit from losartan and spironolactone treatment in addition to the usual management, according to the study protocol. The number of subjects required has been calculated and 45 patients for each group, for a total of 90 patients. The SOFA score at D7 will be compared between the "experimental" versus "control" groups using a mean comparison method. The comparison of this criterion and all secondary criteria of judgments between the 2 groups will be performed using a Student or Mann-Whitney test based on the normality of the distribution. The significance threshold will be set at 0.05. No intermediate analysis is scheduled. The analysis will be blinded. The main expected outcome is an improved prognosis with a decrease in the SOFA severity score at 7 days in resuscitation patients, resulting in an improvement in organ failure. The expected secondary results will be to show the interest of ARA2/Spironolactone treatment on oxygenation based on the PaO2/FiO2 ratio, mechanical ventilation duration and mortality.
Description: Organ failures will be assessed on the SOFA score on day 7 post-inclusion.Measure: SOFA score Time: 7 days (J7)
Description: Oxygenation will be assessed using the PaO2/FiO2 ratio on the 3rd, 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th day after inclusionMeasure: Pa02/Fi02 Time: day 3; day 7; day 14; day 21 and day 28
Description: The duration of mechanical ventilation will be evaluated by the number of days of ventilation, the number of days without ventilation between inclusion and death or D28Measure: Duration of mechanical ventilation Time: 28 days
Description: Mortality will be measured by: mortality at D28, hospital mortality, ICU mortality.Measure: Death Time: 28 days

An HTML report was created for each of the unique drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms associated with COVID-19 clinical trials. Each report contains a list of either the drug, the MeSH terms, or the HPO terms. All of the terms in a category are displayed on the left-hand side of the report to enable easy navigation, and the reports contain a list of correlated drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms. Further, all reports contain the details of the clinical trials in which the term is referenced. Every clinical trial report shows the mapped HPO and MeSH terms, which are also hyperlinked. Related HPO terms, with their associated genes, protein mutations, and SNPs are also referenced in the report.Drug Reports MeSH Reports HPO Reports
