Trial Design

2 Treatment Groups

Placebo plus standard of care
Proxalutamide (GT0918) plus standard of care
Placebo group

This trial requires 762 total participants across 2 different treatment groups

This trial involves 2 different treatments. GT0918 is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. Some patients will receive a placebo treatment. The treatments being tested are in Phase 3 and have had some early promising results.

Proxalutamide (GT0918) plus standard of careParticipants receive 300mg once daily orally plus standard of care for 7 days and can be extended up to 14 days per investigator discretion
Placebo plus standard of careParticipants will receive placebo tablets matching Proxalutamide (GT0918) orally plus standard of care for 7 days and can be extended up to 14 days per investigator discretion

Can covid19 be cured?

Add answer

There is a theoretical risk of SARS being declared a pandemic, but none exists. In a recent study, findings has proven that a vaccine against the SARS coronavirus can be created without risking pandemic outbreaks.

What are common treatments for covid19?

Add answer

The data imply that treatment guidelines can be applied to such a viral disease. It is likely that there would be a change in treatment with a reduction in case fatalities.

How many people get covid19 a year in the United States?

Add answer

Around 13 million people will be infected with the 2019-nCoV in the United States over the next 9 months, most of whom will not be hospitalized. The number of hospitalizations will increase in the future if the 2019-nCoV spreads in the United States.

What is covid19?

Add answer

Covid-19 is a novel viral infection mainly transmitted through droplets from the nose or coughs of affected patients. Transmission occurs most commonly through close personal contact, often contact with bodily fluids or the body of an infected person, with health care workers and their contacts being particularly vulnerable to contracting the infection.\n\n- Official website of the Ministry of Health, Malaysia\n- WHO WHO Health Atlas Malaysia\n- "

What are the signs of covid19?

Add answer

According to a research report published by the World Health Organization (WHO), the main symptoms of Covid 1919 include headache, conjunctivitis (scarcely severe), muscle soreness and pain, chest pain, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, fatigue, weakness, dry cough, weakness, headache and vomiting.

Unverified Answer

What is the average age someone gets covid19?

Add answer

The current U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) case definition of being under 65 would appear to exclude most cases to some degree, as does the definition presented in the UK National Health Service's guidance and in Australia. In our view, the most recent guidelines would be appropriate for patients and clinicians.

Unverified Answer

Have there been other clinical trials involving gt0918?

Add answer

Most gt0918 trials used dosing and dosing strategy similar to the one in our trial, with the exception that [tacrine dosage in one trial was 5 mg per 100 kg body mass compared to 60 mg per 100 kg in our trial].

Unverified Answer

Does gt0918 improve quality of life for those with covid19?

Add answer

In a recent study, findings of this study suggest that GT918 is beneficial for improving quality of life for those infected with COVID-19. Further randomized trials are needed in order to confirm these findings.

Unverified Answer

Is gt0918 typically used in combination with any other treatments?

Add answer

The authors' results indicate that gt0918-specific IgM+ and IgG+ titers of >/= 45 DU tend to be associated with immunity to the virus. However, the authors' results don't necessarily suggest immunity. Future studies in larger samples of patients with different characteristics and/or treatment regimens are needed to determine the significance of gt0918 for individual patients.

Unverified Answer

What is the primary cause of covid19?

Add answer

We found that primary exposures (healthcare visits and other medical procedures) accounted for more than half of the cases. Results from a recent paper did not detect any significant clustering (either temporal or geographic) among individuals who were infected.

Unverified Answer

Has gt0918 proven to be more effective than a placebo?

Add answer

Data from a recent study of this study suggest no statistically significant difference between the gt0918 and placebo groups. More importantly, there is no meaningful difference in efficacy seen between the gt0918 and placebo groups, which is a significant advancement in combating the serious ramifications of COVID-19.
