Remdesivir (RDV; GS-5734) for the Treatment of Selected Coronavirus (CoV) Infection, Single Patient Protocol
Study Type/Phase: Emergency Investigational New Drug
Enrollment Status: Not Recruiting
There is no approved therapy for COVID-19, and current management consists of supportive care, including oxygen support and treatment with antibiotics. In previous experiments, Remdesivir has shown activity against other similar types of viruses, including filoviruses (e.g., Ebola) and coronaviruses (e.g., SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV). Laboratory testing has also shown that Remdesivir has activity against SARS-CoV-2.
Patients were eligible to receive treatment if they had confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection with an oxygen saturation of 94% or less while they were breathing ambient air or who were receiving oxygen support. Patients received Remdesivir for 10 days while admitted to the hospital.
