Brief Summary:
Clinical trial on safety and efficacy of KIN001 in non-hospitalized patients with COVID-19.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
COVID-19 Drug: KIN001 Drug: KIN001-Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a prospective, double-blind, randomized and placebo-controlled phase II trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of KIN001 in non-hospitalized patients suffering from COVID-19. Randomization to one of two treatment arms (KIN001 versus Placebo) is at a ratio of 1:1.

Patients will receive treatment for 14 days and followed for another 14 days. The primary outcome is patient reported COVID-19 symptoms, using the FDA questionnaire developed for assessing COVID-19-related symptoms in outpatients.

The trial will be conducted in Switzerland and Germany.

  2. COVID-19 related hospital admissions [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    All-cause unplanned COVID-19 related hospital admissions

  3. Safety and tolerability assessing treatment emergent adverse events [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Safety and tolerability of KIN001

  4. Total evaluation of COVID-10 symptoms score [ Time Frame: 28 days ]

    Total sum of daily scores* of symptomes from inclusion to day 28
