Brief Summary:
Evaluation of the efficacy and safety of TCM differential treatment of COVID-19 in Jiangsu Province based on the historical prospective multicenter cohort study.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
COVID-19 Drug: TCM prescriptions

Detailed Description:

This is a multi-center cross-sectional syndrome investigation study, taking confirmed cases as the main observation object, A prospective multicenter cohort study was designed, focusing on the common type with the largest number of confirmed cases, to evaluate the intervention effect of this project in relieving the disEvaluation of the efficacy and safety of TCM differential treatment of COVID-19 inease and preventing disease progressio.

According to the actual situation of receiving treatment, if the subjects received the combination of western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, it was the exposure group (integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine cohort), and if the subjects only received western medicine treatment, it was the control group (western medicine cohort). The choice of treatment for patients is entirely determined by clinicians according to the patient's condition, and patients are free to choose after fully understanding different schemes).The choice of control group: COVID-19 (common type) who received routine treatment + antiviral therapy;The choice of exposure group: COVID-19 (common type) who received routine treatment + TCM.The sample size is tentatively set at 340.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Cohort of western medicine
  1. Routine treatment:

    ① support treatment:maintain water and electrolyte balance .

    ②oxygen therapy: give nasal catheters to inhale oxygen.

    ③ basic treatment of traditional Chinese and western medicine: antiviral drugs and proprietary Chinese medicines with similar composition or function to the observed scheme of differentiation and treatment of traditional Chinese medicine are not included in the scope of such drugs.

  2. Antiviral drugs :Clinicians can judge according to the patient's condition according to the latest version of the diagnosis and treatment plan for COvID-19 issued by the General Office of the National Health Commission / the Office of the State Administration of traditional Chinese Medicine (currently the latest version is the sixth trial edition). Select any of the recommended antiviral drugs(for example:IFN-α、lopinavir-ritonavir、Ribavirin、Chloroquine Phosphate、Arbidol)or a combination of two antiviral drugs.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The relief of main symptoms/ disappearance rate of time [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    comparison of the time of relief / disappearance of three main symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath

  2. Chest CT absorption [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    with reference to the "pneumonia chest X-ray absorption Evaluation scale" developed by Renyi Yin et al, the final absorption judgment will be used to evaluate the chest CT absorption of patients with pneumonia, which is divided into four levels according to the degree of absorption: complete absorption, majority absorption, partial absorption and no absorption.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation standard of comprehensive curative effect [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    With reference to the "Therapeutic effect Standard for diagnosis and Syndrome of Traditional Chinese Medicine" and "guiding principles for Clinical Research of New drugs of traditional Chinese Medicine", the final evaluation was based on clinical remission.

  2. Virus antigen negative conversion rate [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    the detection negative rate of nasopharyngeal swab, conjunctival sac secretion virus nucleic acid.

  3. The number of severe and critical conversion cases [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    the number of severe and critical cases occurred after the start of intervention.

  4. Incidence of complications [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    defined as complications during isolation and hospitalization due to pneumonia infected by novel coronavirus, including bacterial infection, aggravation of underlying diseases, etc

  5. Traditional Chinese Medicine Syndrome Score [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine symptom score scale, the change of symptom score before and after treatment was observed.The highest score was 92 points, and the lowest was 23 points. The higher the score, the more severe the symptoms.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. CRP changes [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    Changes in c-reactive protein.

  2. ESR changes [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    Changes in erythrocyte sedimentation rate.

  3. PCTchanges [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    Changes in procalcitonin.

  4. The index of T cell subsets changed [ Time Frame: 9day ]
    Changes of CD4+ and CD8+
