There is one clinical trial.
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an emerging pandemic in 2020 caused by a novel coronavirus named SARS-CoV2. Diabetes confers a significant additional risk for COVID-19 patients. Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4) is a transmembrane glycoprotein expressed ubiquitously in many tissues. In addition to its effect on glucose levels, DPP-4 has various effects on the immune system and several diseases, including lung diseases. This trial aims to assess the safety and efficacy of linagliptin, a DPP-4 inhibitor, in the treatment of COVID-19. The trial will be randomized without blinding, with one are treated by insulin only for glucose balance and the other by insulin and linagliptin. The trial will assess the effects of linagliptin on different measures of COVID-19 recovery.
Description: Clinical change is defined as 2 points reduction in the World Health Organization (WHO) Ordinal Scale for Clinical Improvement of COVID-19: 0 - No clinical or virological evidence of infection; 1 - No limitation of activities; 2 - Limitation of activities; 3 - Hospitalized, no oxygen therapy; 4 - Oxygen by mask or nasal prongs; 5 - Non-invasive ventilation or high-flow oxygen; 6 - Intubation and mechanical ventilation; 7 - Ventilation + additional organ support - pressors, renal replacement therapy, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation; 8 - Death.Measure: Time to clinical change Time: 28 days
Description: Percent of patients with a 2 points reduction in the World Health Organization (WHO) Ordinal Scale for Clinical Improvement of COVID-19.Measure: Percent of patients with clinical improvement. Time: 28 days
