mulTi-Arm Therapeutic Study in Pre-ICu Patients Admitted With Covid-19 - Repurposed Drugs (TACTIC-R)

Authored by

TACTIC-R will assess the efficacy of the immunomodulatory agents Baricitinib and Ravulizumab as potential treatments for COVID-19 disease against Standard of Care alone. These agents target the dysregulated immune response that drives the severe lung, and other organ, damage frequently seen during COVID-19 infection.

This trial will compare these immunomodulatory agents to Standard of Care over a 14-day treatment period, with follow-up at 28 and 90 days. Patients will be randomised in a 1:1:1 ratio across treatments.

TACTIC-R will use a platform design with interim analysis to make efficient decisions about efficacy and futility (e.g. lack of efficacy and risk of harm) of the trial treatments. This enables the trial to stop recruiting to arms early where a clear efficacy decision can be made. It also allows for the addition of further arms.
