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.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
If you answer "yes" to all of these questions, you might be able to take part in this study:
- Are you at least 30 years old?
- Have you tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 10 days?
- Are you able to read, speak, and understand English or Spanish?
- Since testing positive, have you had at least 2 of these symptoms?
- Feeling tired
- Trouble breathing
- Upset stomach
- Body aches or chills
- Sore throat
- Stuffy nose
- New loss or sense of taste or smell
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.
