There is one clinical trial.
The study proposes to conduct an open-label Phase II trial to evaluate the feasibility, safety and early efficacy of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) administration in reduction of transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) and development of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in high-risk, healthy acute care provider participants exposed, directly or indirectly, to COVID-19 patients. There is a more than 50 years track record of safety of HCQ for treatment and prevention of various disease states. Early data on use of HCQ for COVID treatment suggests anti-viral activity and immunomodulatory properties for reducing inflammation associated with COVID-19. Given the lack of data regarding use of HCQ for COVID-19 prevention in healthy participants in midst of pandemic crisis, this study proposes an expedited feasibility study focusing on safety and early efficacy. Prior to HCQ administration, baseline SARS-CoV-2 and other baseline biomarker testing will be conducted. During the 4-week study period, participants will be monitored for drug related adverse events and assessed for development of COVID. SARS-CoV-2 assay and biomarker testing will be repeated at the end of four-week study. Safety outcomes will be assessed by the number of adverse events (AEs) and their severity; and early efficacy as the number of participants who tested positive at the end of the 4-week period comparing to data collected by occupational Health regarding the total number of high-risk healthcare workers that were tested positive during the same period and historical controls from known high risk infection rates. An exploratory analysis of inflammatory regulation and immunomodulatory markers by HCQ and its effect on possible disease modification based on previously studied pathophysiological mechanism of COVID-19. The broader aim of this study is to set a precedent to facilitate a large-scale emergent public health intervention. Purpose would be to mitigate, or abort further transmission of COVID-19. Given that COVID-19 transmission has occurred prior to initiation of this study, the rationale for this intervention is based on prior epidemiological evidence. Post-infectious or vaccination-induced immunity in at least 30% of population at-risk has been shown to mitigate or abort propagation of a local epidemics and global pandemic. This would help flatten the curve of the disease progression, until such time that a vaccine may become available. Data from this study will be used to design and implement a population-based phase IIb/III randomized clinical trial.
Description: To evaluate the feasibility of this protocol including participants' recruitment within the estimated time frame.Measure: Recruitment Feasibility Time: Study period , up to two months from the day the first participant was screened
Description: To evaluate the utilization of tests and drug for this study in consideration with the limited availability of both for research purposes.Measure: Recourse utilization Time: Study period , up to two months from the day the first participant was screened
Description: To Determine the Safety profile for a previously well studied drug in this select group of HCP. Incidence of well described side effects would be studied over the course of the study and will be compared with the side effects and their prevalence as described in the Pharmacy manual for HCQ.Measure: Safety as reflected on the number and severity of adverse events and serious adverse events Time: 28 day post enrollment
Description: To evaluate the early efficacy of HCQ in high-risk, healthy volunteers in the prevention of acquiring COVID-19 while continuing to follow standard precautions that meet or exceed Centers of Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.Measure: Early feasibility as reflected on the number of participants contracting COVID-19 (10% or less) in comparison to the expected 30% as per CDC. Time: 28 day post enrollment
Description: To evaluate the effect of basic inflammatory regulation due to interventional drug and its effect on possible disease modification based on understood pathophysiological mechanism of COVID-19. COVID specific inflammatory response including cytokine IL-6 levels would be compared at the start and end of 4 week study with interventional drug.Measure: Effect of basic inflammatory regulation Time: 28 day post enrollment

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
