Randomized, Embedded, Multifactorial Adaptive Platform trial for Community-Acquired Pneumonia (REMAP-CAP- COVID)

REMAP-CAP: Randomized, Embedded, Multifactorial, Adaptive Platform trial for Community-Acquired Pneumonia

What is REMAP-CAP?

A ‘Platform Trial’ that studies several different treatments at the same time, and assigns participants to treatment arms using a process called “response-adaptive randomization." To participate in the trial, patients must agree to be randomized to at least one of these treatment arms.

You may be eligible to participate if:

  • You are an adult patient admitted to hospital with acute illness due to suspected or proven pandemic infection
  • No more than 14 days have elapsed while admitted to hospital with symptoms of an acute illness due to suspected or proven pandemic infection

Participants will be randomized to specific domains:

  • Antibiotic domain that evaluates commonly used antibiotics for severe pneumonia and COVID
  • Antiviral domain that evaluates 5-day compared to 10-days treatments for patients with confirmed influenza and COVID
  • Anticoagulation domain that evaluates two different doses of blood thinners to prevent blood clots for patients with COVID

Follow up:

  • You be will followed daily while in hospital for up to 28 days. Follow-ups also occur on day 90 and day 180.
