There is one clinical trial.
This is a pilot study which aims to assess the validity and applicability of lateral flow assays (LFAs) which can be used as a point of care test for COVID-19. The study will focus on children admitted to hospital or planned to have a procedure for which they require an anaesthetic. RT-PCR is the current gold standard test for COVID-19, but it usually takes approximately 24-48 hours for a test result to be returned which can slow the clinical care given to a patient and can potentially increase the risk of healthcare worker (HWC) exposure to COVID-19. LFAs are a point of care test which can identify children who have a high viral load of COVID-19 and are performed using a more acceptable method of swabbing for children, just inside the nostril. Using LFA potentially enables the identification of infectious children with COVID-19 to aid with immediate care of patients and limiting HWC and other patients' contact with the virus. This study aims to assess the test failure rate and identify reasons for this which can be addressed. It also aims to assess the discomfort of both tests for children, provide a comparison between the time to LCA and RT-PCR result and provide data for a trial to adequately power a prospective trial comparing RT-PCR and LFA.
Description: A pain score (Wong-Baker) will be used to assess the pain of performing an anterior nasal swab and a nose and throat swabMeasure: Acceptability of test Time: Immediately after test
Description: A description of the test failure rate of lateral flow devices compared to RT-PCR will be performed.Measure: Test failure rate Time: 2 weeks
Description: These data will be used to inform power calculations to determine the number of patients required to determine the validity of the testsMeasure: Comparison of the results of lateral flow device to RT-PCR Time: 2 weeks

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
