1 Prolonged Low Doses of Methylprednisolone for Patients With COVID-19 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome

COVID-19 infection is overwhelming Italian healthcare. There is an urgent need for a solution to the lack of ICU beds and increasing deaths day after day. A recent retrospective Chinese paper (JAMA Intern Med, online March 13, 2020) showed impressive positive effect of methylprednisolone (MP) on survival of SARS-CoV-2 critically ill patients. We're routinely using MP for severe pneumonia-ARDS with acute respiratory failure with very good results. The main objective of this multi-centre observational trial is to evaluate the efficacy of low dose prolonged infusion of methylprednisolone (MP) for patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome.

2 Chloroquine for Mild Symptomatic and Asymptomatic COVID-19 in A Two Staged, Multicenter, Open Label and Randomized Trial

19 COVID (Coronavirus disease 2019 ) is a deadly viral disease that has been spreading around the world for several months, and is caused by a CORONA family virus (COVID-19). Following IN-VITRO evidence of the antiviral effect of CHLOROQUINE in CORONA viruses, this drug has been used empirically for COVID-19 patients and is currently recommended in Israel for the treatment of intermediate and severity disease. The mechanism of action of chloroquine is in part by inhibiting the virus distribution, and changing the intracellular acidity, the virus distribution site. The intracellular chloroquine concentration is determined by a pump called PGP (permeability glycoprotein) that removes the drug from the cell and is activated by the drug. In the treatment of malaria, the benefit of low dosage of the drug has been shown to be effective due to the fact that the intracellular concentration of the drug is probably higher, and therefore the logic to examine this issue in COVID-19 treatment. The purpose of this study is to test whether a low dose of Chloroquine will reduce the duration of the viral shedding and prevent the disease from worsening.
