PRINCIPLE clinical trials

July 2020 Update: there have been significant updates to the principle trial:

  1. Recent loss of smell and taste are now inclusion criteria
  2. New therapeutic arm: doxycycline
  3. Hydroxychloroquine arm is NOT reinstated but it looks as though they might reintroduce it in the future, and are making alterations to the protocol accordingly

Blaenavon Medical Practice is taking part in the national PRINCIPLE clinical trial, which aims to find low-risk treatments for older people with COVID-19 that can be taken at home.

To be eligible to join the trial you will need to have experienced symptoms that are likely to be caused by COVID-19 for fewer than 15 days. The trial is open to people aged 65 or over, or aged 50–64 with an underlying health condition.
