proposes to conduct the current study of favipiravir and umifenovir in moderate hospitalized COVID-19
patients in India in line with global trials ongoing for this drug.
This is a phase 3,
open label, randomized, multicentre study .The primary objective of this study
is to evaluate the clinical efficacy of favipiravir and umifenovir combined
with standard supportive care compared with favipiravir alone with standard
supportive care alone. 158 eligible patients will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio.
The randomization will be computer generated and treatment will be allocated
centrally. The study includes 3 days of screening period and maximum 14 days of
treatment period. The total duration of study participation will be a maximum
of 28 days from the day of randomization.
