COVID – 19

Ongoing Treatment Studies

Monroe Biomedical Research - Illustration - Clinical studies - Asthma

Monroe Biomedical Research is an FDA sanctioned clinical trial facility running multiple COVID treatment studies examining different ways to treat COVID.

Pfizer COVID Treatment Study

Antiviral Pill

Age 18 years and older
for patients who Are Healthy OR At Risk from COVID
therapy 2 pills and 1 capsule 2x per day for 5 days
“Pfizer says its experimental pill for COVID-19 cut rates of hospitalization and death by nearly 90% among patients with mild-to-moderate infections.”
Treatment Details

This study is investigating a type of medication called protease inhibitor. Proteases are enzymes that break down proteins. Some viruses rely on proteases to make copies of themselves. PF-07321332 blocks a protease called 3CLpro that the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the virus that causes COVID-19) uses to make copies of itself. We want to learn if PF-07321332 with ritonavir may stop the virus from spreading in a person.

Novartis COVID Treatment Study

Age Between 18 and 60 years old
for patients who Are Healthy
therapy One time infusion of mAB proteins
Treatment Details

The immune system’s natural defense against COVID-19 involves the creation of proteins called Antibodies. These proteins bind to the receptors of COVID which in turn neutralizes the virus’s ability to enter a human cell and multiply. This therapy is designed to mimic this process. The patient receives an infusion of proteins specifically designed to bind to COVID-19 and neutralize the Virus.
