There is one clinical trial.
Most research on the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 disease relate to screening measures, development of vaccines and optimising treatment of hospitalised patients. It is likely that this pandemic will be ongoing for several years until a high level of immunity is reached in the population or a vaccine has been developed. Thus, there is a need of measures to help the SARS-CoV-2 infected individual at home to overcome the course of disease with less symptoms and strain. A Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) flute is feasible for home use and it is possible that regular use of PEP flute may prevent the progression of respiratory symptoms in non-hospitalized individuals with COVID-19 disease. The primary objective of the study is to examine the effect of PEP flute use among SARS-CoV-2 infected, non-hospitalized patients on self-reported change in COPD Assessment Test (CAT) score during 30 days of follow-up. The secondary objectives are to compare the development in hospitalization rates and use of antibiotics in the intervention group and the control group during the follow-up period.
Description: CAT-scores will be measured using a telephone administered questionnaire. The CAT-score is validated to evaluate symptoms in COPD patients. Eight items covers symptoms of cough, sputum, chest pain, dyspnoea, activities of daily living at home, feeling safe at home despite symptoms (modified for the present study from feeling safe at leaving home despite symptoms), sleep quality and vigour. The eight items sum up to a range of 0-40 with higher scores indicating more respiratory impairment. Although validated for COPD-use, the CAT-scale is considered useful in the present study because several of the items (dyspnoea, cough, fatigue, sputum and pleuritic chest pain) previously have been used as outcome variables in pneumonia studies. The outcome assessment can be taken within + 1 week for the scheduled visit.Measure: Self-reported CAT-score (COPD Assessment Test) Time: Day 30.
Description: Will be obtained from the Danish National Patient Registry, from which also data of comorbidity will be retrieved.Measure: Hospital admissions Time: Up to day 30, 90 and 180.
Description: Will be obtained from the Danish National Prescription Registry.Measure: Use of antibiotics Time: Up to day 30, 90 and 180.
Description: CAT-scores will be measured using a telephone or email-administered questionnaire. The outcome assessment can be taken within + 1 week for the scheduled visit.Measure: Self-reported CAT-score (COPD Assessment Test) Time: Day 90, Day 180.
Description: Assessed by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Event (CTCAE).Measure: Serious Adverse Events Time: During treatment, up to 30 days.
Description: Measured according to the COVIDmeter from Statens Serum Institut using a telephone or email-administered questionnaire. The outcome assessment can be taken within + 1 week for the scheduled visit.Measure: General and respiratory symptoms Time: Day 30, 90, Day 180.

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
