Abstract

The Adaptive COVID-19 Treatment Trial (ACTT) aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of novel therapeutic agents in hospitalized adults diagnosed with COVID-19. One of the earliest treatments arms - antiviral drug remdesivir - was fast tracked into the clinic after Stage 1 results reported in May 2020. Results from Stage 2 were published in December 2020 and combination of remdesivir and baricitinib given emergency use authorisation by the FDA. While new treatments are being tested in Stage 2, the ACTT trial itself will instead continue under a new master protocol; ACTIV-3 (INSIGHT-14).
