There is one clinical trial.
Agent Name and Study Duration ArtemiC is a medical spray comprised of Artemisinin (6 mg/ml), Curcumin (20 mg/ml), Frankincense (=Boswellia) (15 mg/ml) and vitamin C (60 mg/ml) in micellar formulation for spray administration. Patients will receive up to 6 mg Artemisinin, 20 mg Curcumin, 15 mg Frankincense and 60 mg vitamin C given daily as an add-on therapy (in addition to standard care) in two divided doses, on Days 1 and 2. Patients will be randomized in a manner of 2:1 for study drug (ArteminC) and Standard of Care to Placebo and Standard of Care. Patient follow-up will last 2 weeks. During this time, patients will be monitored for adverse events. Additional time will be required for follow up (until hospital discharge) in order to check side effects and study drug efficacy. Placebo, composed of the same solvent but without active ingredients, will be given in the placebo group as add-on therapy, 2 times a day, on Days 1 and 2. Overall rationale A preparation of ArtemiC, comprising Artemisinin, Curcumin, Boswellia, and Vitamin C in a nanoparticular formulation, is proposed as a treatment for the disease associated with the novel corona virus SARS-CoV-2. It is readily available in light of its status as a food supplement. This initiative is presented under the urgent circumstances of the fulminant pandemic caused by this lethal disease, which is known as COVID-19 and has spread across the globe causing death and disrupting the normal function of modern society. The grounds for the proposal are rooted in existing knowledge on the components and pharmacological features of this formulation and their relevance to the current understanding of the disease process being addressed. Leading among these considerations are well established immuno-modulatory activities of the active ingredients as established in vitro and in vivo and published over the years. These activities as apparent, for example, in diminishing activity of TNF alpha and IL-6 levels are acknowledged to be relevant to the pathophysiology processes involved in the progressive form of COVID-19. The active agents have in addition prominent anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory as well as anti-aggregant and anti-microbial activities. Based on these activities and observations in animal models, together with clinical experience of the separate ingredients and in various combinations in other contexts it is proposed to evaluate their effect in the context of COVID-19. Study Purpose This study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of ArtemiC on patients diagnosed with COVID-19. Methodology 50 adult patients who suffer from COVID-19 infection studied in parallel groups treated with active agent or placebo as add on to standard care. Safety will be assessed through collection and analysis of adverse events, blood and urine laboratory assessments and vital signs.

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
