WHAT IS ACTIV-6?

The purpose of the ACTIV-6 research study is to test medications that are already approved for other diseases to see if they can help people with mild to moderate COVID-19 feel better faster and stay out of the hospital.

ACTIV-6 is part of the Accelerating COVID-19 Therapeutic Interventions and Vaccines (ACTIV) program.

WHY IS THIS STUDY BEING DONE?

Better treatments for COVID-19 are still needed, especially for patients with mild to moderate illness. This study is testing different medications because COVID-19 affects each person differently.

ARE COVID-19 TREATMENTS AVAILABLE?

There are now effective treatments that can keep your COVID-19 symptoms from worsening. If your medical provider recommends one of these treatments, you can still choose to in ACTIV-6 while taking the treatment.
Please visit combatcovid.hhs.gov to learn more about recommended treatments.

WHAT WILL YOU DO IF YOU DECIDE TO PARTICIPATE?

If you are a good fit for the study and decide to take part, you will:

  • Take either a study medication or placebo, as prescribed. A placebo is a medication that has no active ingredients and will have no effect.
  • Answer short surveys daily for 14-28 days. Surveys are taken online on a secure, private website. There are no in-person study visits.
  • Complete a follow-up survey after 120 days.

The study drugs will be shipped to you at no cost. Surveys are taken online on a secure, private website. If you have questions, someone will be available to assist you.
