There is one clinical trial.
Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a new coronavirus responsible for the pandemic called coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which appeared in China in December 2019 and which has spread rapidly around the world. Even if in the vast majority of viral infection results in a mild illness, it can also progress to a severe form with sometimes fatal consequences. Indeed, clinical worsening, between the 7th and 10th days of the onset of symptoms, has been widely described since the start of the pandemic. This manifests itself at the biological level by hyperinflammation (VS, CRP, ferritin), coagulopathy (elevation of D-dimers, sometimes disseminated intravascular coagulation) and cell lysis (CPK, LDH). At the same time, it was observed high levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1β, IL-6, TNF-α, IL-18), suggestive of a cytokine storm, and the first studies on therapeutic management targeting these cytokines are currently underway in COVID-19. Such a profile strongly recalls on the one hand the cytokine release syndrome (CRS, observed in CAR-T cell therapy in malignant hematology), and on the other hand the lymphohistiocytic activation syndrome (SALH). Systemic diseases, such as adult Still's disease and its pediatric side, can also be complicated by a cytokine storm, known as macrophagic activation syndrome (SAM, equivalent to secondary SALH). Under all these conditions, IL-1β, IL-18, IFN-γ and IL-6 seem to be key mediators of hyperinflammation. Plasma ferritin is a biological marker of inflammation, long known, associated with various infectious, hematological and immunological conditions. An increase in ferritin levels has in particular been associated with an unfavorable development in certain infections such as influenza and certain authors have moreover shown an association between plasma ferritin and the evolution towards ARDS or death in patients. Its dosage is also used as a diagnostic tool for SAM, and could make it possible to differentiate the latter from severe sepsis in intensive care. Some authors have also noted it as a prognostic factor in Kawasaki disease or CRS. The plasma dosage of ferritin, associated with that of its glycosylated fraction, could therefore be a diagnostic (difference between SAM and severe sepsis in intensive care), prognostic (evolution towards ARDS, mutation in intensive care, mortality) and therapeutic (indication of preemptive treatment with an inhibitor of IL-1 or IL6) in patients infected with SARS-CoV-2. The objective of this study is to retrospectively assess the prognostic value of ferritin and glycosylated ferritin in SARS-CoV-2 infection in hospitalized.
Description: ferritin level will be assess by approved serological tests (French national medical authorities). Ferritin analysis is considered abnormal when the level is > at 388 µg/L;Measure: assessment of the prognostic value of ferritin in sars-cov2 positiv patients Time: the time point is measured one time (biological analysis) at the beginning of the hospitalization ie: day 0 (retrospective analysis).

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
