Antiviral Therapeutics

  • Clinical and microbiological effect of a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin in 80 COVID-19 patients with at least a six-day follow up: an observational study
    In 80 in-patients receiving a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin authors noted a clinical improvement in all but one 86 year-old patient who died, and one 74 year- old patient still in ICU. A rapid fall of nasopharyngeal viral load tested by qPCR was noted, with 83% negative at Day7, and 93% at Day8. Virus cultures from patient respiratory samples were negative in 97.5% patients at Day5. These results allowed patients to be rapidly discharged from contagious wards with a mean length of stay of five days. A modified National Early Warning Score [NEWS] was calculated and added age and temperature to characterize the severity of Covid-19 patients in the study. The NEWS score is one measure to facilitate cross study comparisons of future studies that are needed to replicate this exploratory study with adequate control groups.
