COVID Trials at Home or Hospital


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I wish everyone the best of health but given the reality of the situation, I would like to spread awareness in the community for a NIHR (National Institute for Health Research) Covid home trial involving Southampton company Synairgen?s interferon beta-1a product.

This is the most promising Covid therapeutic in development so far, with positive results from its Phase 2 study published in the Lancet journal on November 12th: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanres/article/PIIS2213-2600(20)30511-7/fulltext

In short, they are running a home and a hospital trial alongside Phase 3.

To qualify for the home trial you need to be aged over 65 years old. or aged 50 and above and have other illnesses which makes you more susceptible to complications of COVID-19, with a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection.

You can read more detail about it at their website https://www.covidtrialathome.com or you can contact the University of Southampton trial team directly at [email protected] or 0330 133 2870 (9am - 5pm, Mon - Fri).

To qualify for the hospital trial you would need to be aged 18 or over and with a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection which has caused admission to hospital. See link on the NIHR site here: https://bepartofresearch.nihr.ac.uk/trial-details/trial-detail?trialId=9286&location=&distance=

Please share if you think this could be helpful to any friends or family.

    • We lost a beloved toy fox on lordship lane, Saturday 2nd march in the afternoon. He has cute green overalls. Was hand knitted and a special gift. If anyone happened to pick him up, we’d be very grateful for his safe return!  Imogen  07791842153.
    • I hope you never run into the last character eating chicken on my bus-he was an older guy, and when he'd finished his food, removed his dentures and picked them clean 😗 I'm still getting over it!
    • We once chose a decorator based on a long history of good reviews on here. It didn’t occur to us that he would ‘outsource’ the work to someone else who did a pretty poor job. Lesson learned. Always check that the person with the good reviews will be actually doing the work.
    • Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT Group but is obliged under regulation to act even-handedly with BT UK and all other of its wholesale customers - that is that all companies supplying services through the Openreach local Network must be treated similarly - so BT Retail has no better, or hopefully worse, access to Openreach as does any other competing company. Openreach has 'passed' much of East Dulwich with fibre to the premises (FTTP) capability.  BT is rebranding all its Retail services to 'EE' (that is, services to private/ residential customers) and I believe to SMEs as well. It is keeping the BT brand as a marketing name for its Major Business business. The maximum speed for FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) services is about 60-70MG to the household router - which is described I believe by some estate agents as superfast, curiously. The real FTTP services in ED are at the moment 500 or 1000MG to the router, and broadly achieve quite close to that, although speeds to the apparatus via WiFi are much less. To get actual benefit of the fibre speed you will need an ethernet network internally.
