ACT-COVID-19 is a study to assess therapies to reduce the clinical progression of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The study will consists of two parallel trials evaluating combination of drugs to treat COVID-19 versus usual care in symptomatic outpatients and inpatients who have tested positive for COVID-19.

Two open-label, parallel group, randomized controlled trials are planned – inpatient and outpatient – with an adaptive design that include adaptive intervention arms and adaptive sample size based on new and emerging data.

Outpatient Trial

Primary outcome: Hospital admission or death.

Secondary outcomes:

  • Composite of major adverse cardiovascular events: myocardial infarction (MI); stroke; acute limb ischemia (ALI); VTE, death.
  • Disease progression by 2 points on a 7-point scale.

Inpatient Trial

Primary outcome: Composite of invasive mechanical ventilation or mortality.

Secondary outcomes:

  • Composite of major adverse cardiovascular events: myocardial infarction (MI); stroke; acute limb ischemia (ALI); VTE, death.
  • Disease progression by 2 points on a 7-point scale.

Additional Key Team Members

Co-Principal Investigators of the ACT study include:

  • Mark Loeb, Director, Division of Infectious Diseases; Professor, Pathology and Molecular Medicine, McMaster University
  • Will Harper, Associate Professor, Medicine, McMaster University
