The National Institutes of Health has launched a global clinical trial to test a potential COVID-19 treatment that combines remdesivir with a highly concentrated antibody solution. The phase 3 trial will enroll 500 hospitalized adults who have had COVID-19 symptoms for 12 or fewer days and no serious organ dysfunction, and compare their health status after the combination treatment with participants receiving remdesivir and a placebo. The agency also announced a research network to study the immune response to COVID-19 and increase antibody testing capacity.
