Trial Overview

Purpose

The study is designed as a randomized, placebo-controlled, double blind, multicenter, Phase III trial to compare two COVID-19 treatment regimens in hospitalized adult subjects who are diagnosed with severe and critical COVID 19. Arm A: CD24Fc/Best Available Treatment; Arm B: placebo/ Best Available Treatment. CD24Fc will be administered as single dose of 480 mg via IV infusion on Day 1. Total of 270 subjects will be enrolled and randomized in 1:1 ratio to receive CD24Fc or placebo. All subjects will be treated with the best available treatment. The follow up period is 28 days.

CD24FcPrimary Drug Intravenous Infusion

CD24Fc Treatment

Single dose at Day 1, CD24Fc, 480mg, diluted to 100ml with normal saline, IV infusion in 60 minutes.
Drug: CD24Fc (CD24Fc is given on Day 1.) Other Name: Human CD24 and human IgG Fc Fusion Protein

Placebo

Single dose at Day 1, normal saline solution 100ml, IV infusion in 60 minutes.

Results

Therapeutic efficacy

Phase III: In the phase III SAC-COVID trial conducted in adult patients with severe COVID-2019 infections, interim analysis post treatment with CD24Fc in 70 patients showed low mortality rate (5%) [2] .

Adverse events

Phase III: In interim analysis from the phase III SAC-COVID trial conducted in adult patients with severe COVID-2019 infections, CD24Fc showed favourable safety profile. The drug did not show any infusion site reaction or other drug-related adverse events. The data were reported from 70 patients [2] .

21 Apr 2020 Other trial event According to an Oncoimmune media release, as the drug has a novel mechanism of action, it will likely synergize with other drugs, including antiviral treatments such as chloroquine and Remdesivir, or other immune modulators targeting cytokines or their receptors. Therefore, the trial will accept patients undergoing, or intending to enroll in trials testing other experimental therapies. Updated 22 Apr 2020
21 Apr 2020 Other trial event According to an OncoImmune media release, this study will involve 10 centers across the country. Dr. Joel Chua Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Clinical Care and Research, Institute of Human Virology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is the clinical principle investigator for the University of Maryland Medical Center. ClinSmart, LLC of Newton, Pennsylvania is the Clinical Research Organization contracted to manage the trial. Updated 22 Apr 2020
