Host Response Mediators in Coronavirus (COVID-19) Infection

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Vaccines & Treatments

This study will address the need for effective treatments for those infected with COVID-19. Specifically, for people like you, that become ill enough to require admission to hospital, we think that an existing drug called losartan might help treat COVID-19 and hasten recovery. As such, we will investigate the safety and effectiveness of losartan in the treatment of COVID-19 and whether it can decrease the rate of death in COVID-19 patients compared to usual care of standard of care (SOC). We will also determine whether losartan can help limit damage to organs (kidney, lung, heart and liver) as this type of damage has been observed in COVID-19 patients in hospital.
