Participants will be randomized to one of the following groups:

  1. Remdesivir 200mg IV on day 1, followed by 100 mg IV daily infusion for 9 days plus optimized supportive care, OR
  2. Interferon-beta-1a, 22 or 44 micrograms subcutaneously on days 1, 3 and 6, plus optimized supportive care OR
  3. Optimized support care, all or until discharge from hospital, whichever occurs first

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
COVID-19 Drug: Interferon beta-1a Drug: Remdesivir Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This study is an adaptive, randomized, open-label, controlled clinical trial, in collaboration with countries around the world through the World Health Organization.

Subjects will be randomized to receive either standard-of-care products or the study medication plus standard of care, while being hospitalized for COVID-19.

Participants will be randomized to one of the following groups:

  1. Remdesivir 200mg IV on day 1, followed by 100 mg IV daily infusion for 9 days plus optimized supportive care, OR
  2. Interferon-beta-1a, 22 or 44 micrograms subcutaneously on days 1, 3 and 6, plus optimized supportive care OR
  3. Optimized support care, all or until discharge from hospital, whichever occurs first

Subjects will be assessed daily while hospitalized, including Oropharyngeal (OP) / Nasopharyngeal (NP) swabbing at baseline and on days post enrolment 3, 5, 8, 11, 15 and 29 (if still hospitalized, exploratory outcome). Hospitalized subjects will require blood sampling on days 1 and 5. Discharged subjects will be telephoned at Days 15, 29, and 60.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 2900 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

3-arms in a 1:1:1 ratio randomization to either the control arm, consisting of standard supportive care treatment for COVID-19, or remdesivir plus standard supportive care or Interferon-beta-1a plus standard supportive care.

This study is intended to allow for multiple adaptations, including: i) the primary endpoint at the first interim analysis, based on performance characteristics, both in its characteristics and its timepoint, with adapted sample size calculations performed for the new primary endpoints; ii) Intervention arm, with emerging data from both internal and external to the trial, with arms being dropped or added based on pre-specified stopping rules in conjunction with the DSMB.

    Mean change in the ranking from baseline to days 3, 5, 8, 11, 15, 29, 60 or at discharge using the ordinal scale below:

    The scale is as below 0: Uninfected, no viral RNA

    1. Asymptomatic, viral RNA detected

    if the subject required oxygen, for how long was it required

  7. Incidence of new mechanical ventilation [ Time Frame: up to 29 days ]
    if the subject required mechanical ventilation during hospitalization

  8. Duration of mechanical ventilation [ Time Frame: up to 29 days ]
    if the subject required mechanical ventilation, for how long was it required

  9. Duration of hospitalization [ Time Frame: up to 60 days ]
    the length of hospitalization required

  11. Cumulative Incidence of Grade 3 and 4 Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: up to 30 days after last dose of drug adminstration ]
    The safety of the intervention will be evaluated during the trial period as compared to the control arm as assessed by the cumulative incidence of Grade 3 and 4 AEs and SAEs using the Division of AIDS (DAIDS) Table for Grading the Severity of Adult and Paediatric Adverse Events, version 2.1 (July 2017).


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Time to viral clearance of lopinavir/ritonavir as compared to the control arm [ Time Frame: up to 29 days ]
    To evaluate the virologic efficacy of remdesivir and interferon-beta-1a as compared to the control arm as assessed by the percent of subjects with SARS-CoV-2 detectable in OP/NP sample at days 3, 5, 8, 11, 15, and 29

Individual Participant Data (IPD) Sharing Statement:
Plan to Share IPD: Yes
Plan Description:

As per World Health Organization policies on data sharing in a Public Health Emergency, any clinical trial outcome data will be shared at the earliest possible opportunity. In addition, given the nature of this protocol, being performed across regions, the DSMB may access other regions trials, and possibly recommend alterations in study design based on accumulating data, through a centralized data repository being built under the auspices of the World Health Organization.

Data Sharing for Secondary Research Data from this study may be used for secondary research. All of the individual subject data collected during the trial will be made available after de-identification through expert determination. The SAP and Analytic Code will also be made available. This data will be available immediately following publication, with no end date, as part of data sharing requirements from journals and funding agencies.
