Clinical trials in COVID-19
Favipiravir is useful in a small case series consisting of 11 serious patients with COVID-19 in Japan. The median age, time from symptom onset to admission in the ICU, and PaO2/FiO2 ratio on admission were 68 years (IQR 60–69), 8 days (IQR 7–11), and 131 (IQR 114–198) respectively. All patients needed oxygen therapy, eight patients (73%) needed invasive mechanical ventilation, and 3 patients (27%) needed extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).
Of the 11 patients, 7 didn’t need mechanical ventilation. Nine and 7 patients were discharged from the ICU and the hospital, respectively.
