There is one clinical trial.
NAME of STUDY: Surfactant levels in the lungs of COVID-19 patients BACKGROUND - Infection with SARS-CoV-2 may induce respiratory failure. - COVID-19 associated respiratory failure may require ventilatory support. - SARS-CoV-2 uses alveolar type II cells for virus replication. - Alveolar type II cells are responsible for surfactant production and lack of surfactant causes respiratory failure in preterm neonates. - Lack of surfactant may play role for respiratory failure in COVID-19 patients DESIGN Exploratory prospective study design without therapeutic intervention of any kind. Lung fluid will be donated as part of standard care procedures. HYPOTHESIS Surfactant is measurable in tracheal secretions by mid-infrared FTIR spectroscopy determined surfactant spectra. Surfactant is reduced in COVID-19 patients requiring ventilator support as compared to non- COVID-19 patients. Dysfunctional surfactant in COVID-19 patients regain its function when respiratory function improves. POPULATION Main population is patients with COVID-19 pneumonia that requires ventilatory support. OUTCOME MEASURES Primary outcome is the level of surfactant in lung fluid as obtained by tracheal suction. SAMPLE SIZE In total 30 patients will be included: twenty COVID-19 patients and 10 non-COVID-19 patients.
Description: The primary outcome is surfactant levels in lung fluidMeasure: Surfactant Time: Two years

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
