In view of the fact that there is currently no effective antiviral therapy, the prevention or treatment of lung injury caused by COVID-19 can be an alternative target for current treatment. Patients with severe COVID-19 have rapid disease progression and high mortality. There is currently no effective treatment method, which may be related to the excessive immune response caused by cytokine storm. This study will evaluate thalidomide combined with low-dose hormone adjuvant therapy for severe COVID-19 Patient effectiveness and safety.
Description: TTCI is defined as the time (in days) from initiation of study treatment (active or placebo) until a decline of two categories from admission status on a six-category ordinal scale of clinical status which ranges from 1 (discharged) to 6 (death). Six-category ordinal scale: 6. Death; 5. ICU, requiring ECMO and/or IMV; 4. ICU/hospitalization, requiring NIV/ HFNC therapy; 3. Hospitalization, requiring supplemental oxygen (but not NIV/ HFNC); 2. Hospitalization, not requiring supplemental oxygen; 1. Hospital discharge. Abbreviation: IMV, invasive mechanical ventilation; NIV, non-invasive mechanical ventilation; HFNC, High-flow nasal cannula.Measure: Time to Clinical Improvement (TTCI) Time: up to 28 days
Description: Clinical status, assessed by the ordinal scale at fixed time pointsMeasure: Clinical status Time: days 7, 14, 21, and 28
There is one SNP
There is currently no effective treatment method, which may be related to the excessive immune response caused by cytokine storm.It has been reported that the combined use of thalidomide and dexamethasone can effectively inhibit NK / T-cell lymphoma combined with ECSIT V140A mutation of hematophilic syndrome. --- V140A ---
