There is one clinical trial.
Background: Each Belgian winter season is characterized by a wave of influenza like and respiratory symptoms. Especially, the elderly people are more vulnerable to be infected by influenza, but also RSV. The recent COVID-19 pandemic and eventually a next wave, will increase the prevalence of influenza like and respiratory symptoms. Method: A multicentre non-commercial cohort study will be conducted in nursing home staff and residents during the Winter season 2020-2021. Objectives: Primary objective is the difference in incidence of influenza like and respiratory symptoms between cases (cases have evidence of past infection with SARS-CoV-2, referred to as Covid +) and controls (controls have no evidence of previous infection and are referred to as Covid -). The primary outcome analysis as well as the secondary outcome analyses will use two strata: nursing home staff and nursing home residents. The secondary objectives are the difference in incidence of COVID-19, influenza, RSV infections confirmed by PCR between cases and controls, to define a correlate of protection in the covid + group against re-infection with SARS-CoV-2 based on the study of the pre-existing antibody profile (antigen specificity, antibody type and antibody level) at the time of re-exposure. A multiplex assay will be used to assess the antibody profile. Finally, to study the COVID-19 disease severity (7 point WHO ordinal scale, this includes a.o. hospitalisation, mechanical ventilation need and ICU admission, mortality) based on the presence/absence of pre-existing antibodies and the pre-existing antibody profile. For other respiratory infections we will study the need for hospitalization and mortality.
Description: This study will assess the time to the occurrence of influenza-like illness (ILI) or acute respiratory infection (ARI) in subjects previously COVID+ compared to subjects known as COVID- (controls), more specifically subjects will belong to two subgroups: nursing home residents (65+) and nursing home staff (18-65y). COVID+ is defined as a past SARS-CoV-2 infection.Measure: Time to occurrence of ILI and ARI both in participants previously exposed to SARS-COV-2 and controls Time: up to 8 months
Description: Disease severity will be measured by hospitalization and mortalityMeasure: Correlation of the pre-existing antibody characteristics for COVID-19 with disease severity. Time: up to 8 months

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
