Official Title
Cohort Multiple Randomized Controlled Trials Open-label of Immune Modulatory Drugs and Other Treatments in COVID-19 Patients CORIMUNO-19-Nivolumab Trial
Brief Summary

It appears interesting to use nivolumab in severe patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 requiring hospitalization in conventional unit or in ICU. This protocol CORIMUNO19-NIVO therefore, will evaluate the efficacy and safety of OPTIVO® (nivolumab) COVID-19 patients hospitalized in conventional unit. The purpose of this study is to show the efficacy of nivolumab in patients with COVID-19 in combination with standard treatments. A phase 2 randomized open trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of optivo® (nivolumab) alone versus standard of care (SoC) in patients hospitalized in conventional units. Patients will be randomly allocated 1:1 to either nivolumab or SoC.

Unknown status
COVID19- Infection With SARS-CoV-2 Virus

Drug: Nivolumab Injection

Treatment consists of an infusion of OPDIVO® 3mg/kg on day 1 (D1).
