Rapid antigen detection (RAD) tests are used to perform rapid diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection based on a qualitative approach. RAD tests detect the viral antigen by the immobilized coated SARS-CoV-2 antibody placed on the device. The results of these tests are available in a short time, reducing the workload in diagnostic hospitals and laboratories and improving the turn-around time. EuGeni SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Rapid Diagnostic Test is an in vitro Diagnostic (IVD) medical device intended to be used for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid antigen. The result from this IVD test identifies the presence or absence of the SARS-CoV-2 antigen as an aid for the diagnosis of COVID-19 infection.
COVID 19-pneumonia may evolve into respiratory insufficiency for which invasive mechanical ventilation is required. Recently, inhaled anesthetics have become available for sedation of critically ill patients. Based upon recent research, these anesthetics may provide advantages in improvement of P/F ratio in ARDS patients. However, up to now, its effects on COVID-19 pneumonia patients is unknown; therefore, this study was designed as a plan to investigate whether the use of inhaled sevoflurane leads to improvement of oxygenation compared to intravenous sedatives in mechanically ventilated COVID-19 patients
The objective of this study is to evaluate the 3EO Health COVID-19 Test in individuals presenting at a medical facility. In eligible subjects, nasal samples will be collected for use with the 3EO Health COVID-19 Test, which will be compared to the Zymo® rRT-PCR test results obtained via samples specified by the manufacturer (e.g., AN [anterior nares] swab) to determine accuracy of the 3EO Health COVID-19 Test in detecting COVID-19 in participants.
The primary aim of this study is to evaluate the patients who had pneumonia or severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) due to COVID-19 in terms of sarcopenia and related factors following Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The patients who had COVID-19 infection in the ICU and the patients who admitted to the 'Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation' clinic for other reasons during the pandemic period will be compared in terms of sarcopenia.
Prospective study that will evaluate the clinical agreement of the CoviDx™ Self test compared to SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR.
A nasal spray based on Advanced Water S-100 ionized water would clean the nasal cavity, reduce the viscosity of the mucus and facilitate its elimination and the decongestion of the nose and the prevention of the seizure of the SARS-COV-2 to the epithelial cells of the nasal cavity In fact, a nasal spray based on Advanced Water S-100 ionized water would modify the electrostatic environment of all interactions ensuring this seizure. The negative ions (OH-) contained in Advanced Water S-100 compete with the negative ions of the heparan sulfate, which will destabilize this essential bond for the virus to enter the host cell. In addition, positively charged basic amino acids, in the presence of the basic pH of ADW S-100, will be neutralized by OH- ions which will prevent the formation of salt and hydrogen bridges mediating the formation of the protein S/ACE2 complex. The destabilization of all bonds governing the protein S/ACE2 association process will prevent the virus from entering cells and replicating. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether the use of ADW S-100 ionized water nasal spray reduces the salivary and nasopharyngeal viral load during an 8-day follow-up of persons recently infected with SARS-Cov-2, and thus potentially decreases the risk of contamination of the entourage.
An informational evaluation of COVID-19 patients who receive low-level laser therapy in addition to a normal regimen of treatment for symptoms associate with COVID-19. Results are compared to statistical observations published in literature from patients receiving standard care for COVID-19 symptoms without low-level laser therapy.
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.
Post exposure prophylaxis of healthy contacts is among the measures used for outbreak control of several infectious diseases (e.g., pandemic influenza). No agent is known to be effective in preventing COVID-19, but Ivermectin is one of the drugs that have shown antiviral activity against SARS-CoV-2 in the laboratory. This study aims to evaluate the effect of post exposure prophylaxis with Ivermectin after exposure to COVID-19 among the asymptomatic close contacts.
