Help the fight against COVID19 

PRINCIPLE – Platform Randomised trial of INterventions against COVID19 In older peopLE

The Trial

As yet, there are currently no known treatments for COVID-19 that have been proven to be effective. Our trial aims to evaluate potential treatments as they are identified. To be able to do this, we aim to test one or more suitable, potential treatments for COVID-19, as soon as they become available. We will evaluate drugs that are well known and have been used for many years around the world. We want to make treatments that are proven to be effective as widely and as rapidly available as possible. However, we do not want to give people medication that does not work, and may simply put them at unnecessary risk of side effects. At the moment we really do not have enough information about whether any benefits from taking these drugs outweigh any possible harms from these drugs. So, we do not know yet if these drugs work for COVID19, and that is why we urgently need to do a proper trial so we have the information we need to guide the provision of best care for all.

Please note Clifton Road Surgery cannot support in any applications for the trial nor do we have further information.  Please see the attached leaflet for further information or please visit their website (via the hyperlink below):
