This is a specimen collection study intended to generate a biological specimen repository of samples from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) naïve adults and adolescents ≥12 years old who will receive locally authorized or licensed COVID-19 vaccines. Approximately 1,000 participants will be enrolled. Plasma and peripheral blood mononuclear cell samples will be obtained either by venipuncture, or by leukapheresis. Serum, RNA, and DNA samples will be obtained by venipuncture. Specimens for mucosal antibody assessments will be collected by nasal swabbing. Biological specimens will be collected from study participants at Baseline prior to the COVID-19 vaccine dose and at timepoints aligned with the study participant's vaccination schedule for a period of up to 1 year following receipt of the initial COVID-19 vaccination.
Objectives Primary objectives To assess the superiority or not of the infusion of anti-COVID immune plasma infusion versus a placebo (non-immune plasma) to patients over 65 years of age recently infected with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, to prevent progression to severe forms of the disease with hospital admission. Secondary objectives To assess if the intervention improves the clinical evolution of the target patient. - Improvement of the disease. - Disease deterioration Methodology Design Prospective, randomized (1:1; experimental group: control group), double-blind study, in which the doctors who prescribe the treatments and those who assess the results do not know the treatment received by the patient. Methods. Patients 65 years of age or older will be included, diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection, in which no more than 7 days have elapsed since the onset of symptoms or diagnosis to plasma infusion.All patients included in the study will receive the same standard treatment that is deemed appropriate at any time, understanding as standard treatment that established at any time by the guidelines established.Infusion of 300 cc of convalescent donor plasma from COVID 19, administered within more than 168 hours from the onset of symptoms. For the study to be blind, the infusion of non-convalescent donor plasma, obtained before the start of the epidemic, is required to guarantee the absence of anti-COVID antibodies in the plasma of the control group. Analysis of data: Initially, the homogenization of the data referring to the two groups of studies will be evaluated. Classical statistical tests will be applied, such as Wilcoxon's non-parametric tests for the comparison of means of continuous variables, as well as the Chi-square test (or Fisher's exact test) to evaluate the association between categorical variables. The result variables are: 1. Hospital admission 2. Clinical course 3. Mortality 4. Complications and/or adverse effects of plasma.
Currently, 3 anti-SARS-CoV-2 monoclonal antibody products have received Emergency Use Authorizations from the Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA) for the treatment of mild to moderate COVID-19 in non hospitalized patients with laboratory-confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection who are at high risk for progressing to severe disease and/or hospitalization (bamlanivimab plus etesevimab, sotrovimab, and casirivimab plus imdevimab). Differently from casirivimab/imdevimab and sotrovimab, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has never recommended authorising the combination bamlanivimab/etesevimab for treating COVID-19. Moreover, the evidence on sotrovimab relies on the interim analysis results of an ongoing randomised placebo-controlled clinical trial , unlike the combinations bamlanivimab/etesevimab and casirivimab/imdevimab, whose results of the randomised placebo-controlled trials were published after having completed the enrolment [2,3]. The study aims at assessing the non-inferiority of bamlanivimab plus etesevimab and sotrovimab vs. casirivimab plus imdevimab on COVID-19 progression in patients aged at least 50 years at an early stage of the disease. The progression of COVID-19 disease (hospitalization, need for supplementary oxygen therapy at home, death) within 14 days of randomisation is the composite outcome variable on which the calculation of the sample size is based. Based on available data regarding the reduction in the number of hospitalisations and medical visits with the use of casirivimab plus imdevimab at an early-stage of COVID-19, a disease progression of 5% has been estimated in the reference arm. 5% delta margin was considered clinically relevant, taking into account both the estimates of disease progression in the study population in absence of early treatment with monoclonal antibodies (20%, based on national data) and the efficacy of the reference standard. Therefore, 1260 participants will be randomly assigned in an equal ratio between the reference standard and each of the other two experimental arms (1:1:1). Randomization will be computer-generated in permuted blocks with a stratification based on site.
This is a study of the BinaxNOW Covid-19 Ag Card as a method to rapidly identify SARS-CoV-2 infection in asymptomatic children, teachers, and other school staff for exclusion. 240 students and 80 teachers in the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) will be enrolled and can expect to be on study for up to 8 weeks.
The purpose of this study is to determine both the magnitude and duration of viral load (copies/mL) reduction after a single dose of OPN-019. The variability associated with viral counts will be utilized to inform the study design of future studies.
A retrospective, single centre observational study to validate use of the HACOR score (Duan et al, 2017) in determining efficacy of non-invasive ventilation in Covid-19 respiratory failure.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of UNI91103 intranasal spray for treatment of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic adults.
Comparison of the effects of CYT107 vs Placebo administered by intra-muscular route (IM) at 10μg/kg twice a week for three weeks on immune reconstitution of lymphopenic COVID-19 patients
The purpose of this research study is to see if participants who have SARS-CoV-2 and low levels of AT3 in the blood will benefit by being given AT3.
This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, antiviral activity, and pharmacokinetics of study drug RO7496998 (AT-527) compared to placebo in non-hospitalized adult and adolescent participants with mild to moderate coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the outpatient setting.
