There is one clinical trial.
Several studies have shown that smokers have a higher risk of developing a severe form of COVID-19 once a person has been infected. This is explained by the damage caused by smoking at the bronchopulmonary level and an overexpression of some coronavirus receptors at the pulmonary level when exposed to tobacco. In contrast, recent data indicate that smokers are proportionally less infected with the COVID-19 virus since all available cohort data from around the world show a very low rate of smokers among COVID-19 infected subjects. The mechanisms at the origin of this protective effect are not known. All of these data lead us to question the real role of nicotine in the protective effect of tobacco observed in the general population against infection by the COVID-19 virus. The objectives are : - To show that subjects taking nicotine substitutes as part of a smoking cessation program are less infected with COVID-19 than non-smokers. - To show that active smokers are less infected with COVID-19 than non-smokers. - To compare the percentage of positive serological tests in subjects taking nicotine substitutes to the percentage of positive serological tests in active smokers.
Description: Percentage of patients with a positive serological test for COVID-19.Measure: Percentage of patients with a positive serological test for COVID-19. Time: 1 day

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
