Brief Summary:

Assessment of Efficacy and Safety of Tocilizumab Compared to DefeROxamine, associated with standards treatments in COVID-19 (+) patients, Hospitalized In Intensive care in Tunisia.

Multicentric, comparative, randomized study.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
COVID19 Intensive Care Unit Drug: Tocilizumab Injection Drug: Deferoxamine Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Arm1 :

  • Usual standard treatment*
  • Tocilizumab (LOC) (8mg/ kg per day) (1 injection per infusion) a second injection may be considered if necessary, but no more than 800 mg per day. Only on the 1st day (D0)
  • Enoxaparin (4000 IU X 2) per day for the duration of hospitalization

VERSUS

Arm 2:

  • Usual standard treatment*
  • Deferoxamine (Desferal 500 mg, powder, and solvent for IV solution) by electric syringe 40 mg/kg/day 5day/7 without exceeding 5 g per day for 14 days
  • Enoxaparin (4000 IU X 2) per day for the duration of hospitalization

Usual standard treatment*: according to the standard practices of each center, apart from the active molecules of the 2 arms and their therapeutic class)
