There are 2 clinical trials
COVID-19 has adversely affected the healthcare system across the world. The world was not prepared for global outbreak of infectious diseases. The rapid spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is enabling researchers worldwide to acquire a large amount of clinical data regarding coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The COVID-19 infection severely affects the respiratory system in the critical cases and results in mortalities. The affected people experience a dry cough, fever, breathing problems, diarrhea, muscle pain, and sore throat. Besides that, some of the evidence from Italy, South Korea, China, and Spain suggest that the COVID-19 cases also lose their senses of smell and taste resulting in alterations in those patients. The objective of this proposed study is to determine whether COVID-19 cases have Olfactory and gustatory dysfunctions as a hallmark indicator and can be used as diagnostic tools for the isolation of suspected people. Investigators are presenting a prospective proportional case-control study that is conducted to investigate the COVID-19 cases with anosmia and /or Ageusia in a university hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The sample size of this case series would be 250 cases of suspected COVID-19 patients. The cases included in the study are analyzed prospectively to determine if the cases had a history of anosmia and /or Ageusia, and then tested for the alteration of these senses through a panel of standardized odors/taste strips. That is looked at statistically allowing us to confirm the proposed effectiveness of these tests as a diagnostic tool.
Description: to how extent alteration of smell and taste senses is related to covid19 statusMeasure: correlation of anosmia and ageusia to covid19 positive patients Time: from 1/06/2020 to 31/12/2020
Description: to determine the range of sense affection ranging from total loss to mild formMeasure: objective assessment of severity of smell and taste senses alterations in covid19 patients Time: from 1/06/2020 to 31/12/2020
Time to recover of Anosmia and / or ageusia and early corticosteroid use
Description: Time to recovery from anosmia and / or agusiaMeasure: Time to recovery Time: one to 6 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
