Official Title
Randomized, Open, Multicenter Study on the Efficacy and Safety of Arbidol Hydrochloride Tablets in Treating Pneumonia in Patients Infected With Novel Coronavirus (2019-ncov).
Brief Summary

In the absence of 2019-ncov specific therapeutic drugs, arbidol is effective against a variety of coronaviruses in vitro pharmacodynamics. In order to observe the efficacy and safety of arbidol in the treatment of 2019-ncov infected pneumonia, this study is planned.

Detailed Description

In December 2019, Wuhan, in Hubei province, China, became the center of an outbreak of pneumonia of unknown cause. In a short time, Chinese scientists had shared the genome information of a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) from these pneumonia patients and developed a real-time reverse transcription PCR (real time RT-PCR) diagnostic assay. The number of cases of infection with 2019-nCoV identified in Wuhan increased markedly over the later part of January 2020, with cases identified in multiple other Provinces of China and internationally. Mathematical models of the expansion phase of the epidemic suggested that sustained person-to-person transmission is occurring, and the R-zero is substantially above 1, the level required for a self-sustaining epidemic in human populations.

There is currently no specific treatment for 2019-ncov-infected pneumonia. Arbidol tablet is a non-nucleoside broad-spectrum antiviral drug with immune-enhancing effect. Abidor is pharmacodynamic in vitro against a variety of coronaviruses.This is a randomized, open, multicenter clinical study of pneumonic subjects diagnosed with 2019-ncov infection. The main objective was to compare the viral negative conversion rate in the first week after the subjects were randomized to arbidol plus basic treatment.

In this study, 380 eligible patients with pneumonia diagnosed with 2019-ncov infection were randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups at a 1:1 ratio.

patients will receive one of two treatment regimens: A .Abidor tablets + basic treatment B. basic treatment Arbidol tablets: take 2 tablets/time, 3 times/day for 14-20 days Basic treatment :The basic treatment used by the investigator was based on the condition of the patient.

4. The results of laboratory tests are abnormal: A) Hematological dysfunction is defined as: i) Platelet (PLT) count: <100 × 109 / L; ii) hemoglobin (Hb) level <90g/L. B) abnormal liver function is defined as: i) level of total bilirubin(TBil) : >2 times Upper Limits of Normal(ULN); ii) the levels of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and Alanine transaminase (ALT):>3 times of ULN. C) definition of renal dysfunction: Serum creatinine>1.5 times of ULN, or calculated creatinine clearance<50ml / min; D) definition of abnormal blood coagulation: International normalized ratio(INR) >1.5 times of ULN, and the prothrombin time ((PT)) or activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) is 1.5 times of ULN, unless the subject is receiving anticoagulant therapy.

5. Abidor was used before inclusion(Tablets, capsules, granules).

6. Women who are nursing or pregnant.

7. Serum or urine pregnancy tests were positive for women of child-bearing age.

8. Immunodeficient patient(Patients with malignant tumors, Organ or bone marrow transplant, HIV patient, those who took immunosuppressive drugs within 3 months before the screening test ).

9. With the following history of present illness: 1. Neurological and neurodevelopmental disorders, These include diseases of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles(Such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy, stroke, mental retardation, moderate to severe developmental delay, muscular malnutrition or spinal cord injury ). 2. circulation system disease( congenital heart disease, Congestive heart failure or coronary artery disease). 3. Severe heart disease or a history of clinically significant arrhythmias that the researchers believe will affect participants' safety (According to the ECG or medical history).

10. Other patients considered ineligible for this study were considered ineligible by the investigators
