There is one clinical trial.
Due to the limitations of COVID-19 treatment and in the absence of licensed antiviral for COVID-19, the historical choice of therapeutic convalescent plasma (CP) is considered especially against RNA viruses .It was known that convalescent plasma does not only neutralize the pathogens but provide passive immunomodulatory properties that allows the recipient to control the exaggerated inflammatory cascade. However, still there is a lack of understanding of the mechanism of action of CCP therapeutic components. Reports from open label trials and case series show that CCP is safe and might be effective in severe cases with COVID-19 . Therefore, the World health organisation (WHO) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued guidelines for the CCP usage and standardised the donor selection , which was further supported by Emergency use Authorisation (EUA) . Therefore, the aim in the current study is to assess the effect of CCP on time to clinical improvement, hospital mortality and to evaluate the changes on oxygen saturation and laboratory markers (lymphocyte counts and C-reactive protein) compared with standard treatment alone in patients with moderate or severe COVID-19 disease.
Description: Time to clinical improvement is defined as a time frame from CCP administration till 30 days or discharge, defined as a 2-grade decrease on an ordinal WHO clinical scale . The WHO clinical scale based on the following 7-grade ordinal levels: 1= ambulatory, independent; 2= ambulatory with assistance; 3=hospitalised, not requiring supplemental oxygen; 4= hospitalised, requiring supplemental oxygen; 5= hospitalised, requiring nasal high-flow oxygen therapy, noninvasive mechanical ventilation, or both; 6= hospitalised, requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, invasive mechanical ventilation, or both; and 7= death.Measure: Time to clinical improvement Time: 30 days

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
