Shreveport Hospital Kicks Off New Covid Clinical Trial
A Shreveport hospital has been selected as a site for a Covid clinical trial.
Willis-Knighton Health System is one of 400 sites conducting clinical trials for an oral medication to prevent COVID illness for those who are exposed to the virus by someone in their household. Dr. Joseph Bocchini says this is a critical advance in outpatient therapy.
The Pfizer medication being used has already received Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA for those who are more susceptible to severe COVID complications. Bocchini says the trial is looking for participants who are exposed to COVID by someone in their household to compare efficacy and dosage.
The trial is looking for those 18 and older with no current symptoms of COVID and who reside in the same household as someone with symptoms of COVID. Bocchini says participants will be compensated.
