There is one clinical trial.
Chicken egg consists of three main components, egg white (56%), yolk (33%) and shell (11%). The key component of egg white is 88 percent water and 12 percent solids, of which over 90 percent are protein. Ovalbumin, ovotransferrin, and ovomucoid are considered the main proteins, while ovomucin, lysozyme, ovoglobulin, ovomacroglobulin, ovoglycoprotein, ovoflavoprotein, thiamin-binding proteins, ficin/papain inhibitors, avidin, and cystatin are the minor white proteins of the embryo. These proteins and their peptides have been recognized as antioxidants, antimicrobials, metal-chelators, anti-viral, anti-tumor, and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE)-inhibitors for their functional significance SARS-CoV-2 virus activates the human cell ACE2 receptor, triggering a series of deleterious events. In COVID19, renin-angiotensin is upregulated and the pathway is overexpressed and a progressive cytokine storm is always observed. In all these pathogenic processes, ovotransferrin could play a modifier function to enhance the condition. Ovotransferrin can be beneficial to the antioxidant effects of Angiotensin II by inhibiting NF-kB. Ovotransferrin is an immunomodulator that downregulates pro-inflammatory cytokines including TNF-α, IL-6, and IL-1 that could extinguish the cytokine storm. Ovotransferrin can also serve as a protective agent against COVID19 cardiotoxicity due to disruption in the ACE2-mediated signaling pathway, cytokine storm, pulmonary dysfunction, and side effects of medications. In patients with coronavirus infection, provided ovotransferrin's possible protective effects, it is suggested as a supportive and therapeutic alternative. Given this background, in the light of the current COVID-19 emergency, it is the intention of the investigators to conduct a prospective, randomized, open-label, controlled study in the cohort of hospitalized patients with covid-19 pneumonia, administering 200 mg of ovotransferrin orally in addition to the standard of care therapy (SOC). The investigators hypothesize that the use of ovotransferrin will be associated with an earlier improvement of clinical and humoral parameters after 10 days of ovotransferrin treatment when compared to the group of patients provided with standard care.

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
