Brief Summary:

This is a randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of MRx-4DP0004 in patients with COVID-19.

90 hospitalised patients will be enrolled and randomised (2:1) to receive MRx-4DP0004 or placebo for up to 14 days.

MRx-4DP0004 is an immunomodulating Live Biotherapeutic Product (LBP) which is expected to prevent or reduce the hyperinflammatory response to SARS-CoV-2 infection without impairing viral clearance.

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 90 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Pilot, Multiple Dose Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of MRx-4DP0004 in Hospitalised Patients With Symptoms of COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2 Infection)
Estimated Study Start Date : May 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : August 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : September 2020

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MRx-4DP0004
Patients receiving standard of care will add MRx-4DP0004 to their treatment. MRx-4DP0004 is taken as 2 capsules, twice a day for 14 days. Daily dose is 4 x 10^9 to 4 x10^10 colony forming units.
Drug: MRx-4DP0004
MRx-4DP0004 is a lyophilised formulation of a proprietary strain of bacteria.

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Patients receiving standard of care will also take 2 placebo capsules, twice a day for 14 days.
Drug: Placebo
Placebo capsules will be identical in appearance to active product.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in mean clinical status score in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Baseline to Day 42 ]
    Clinical status score will be measured using the WHO Ordinal Scale for Clinical Improvement where patients are scored on a scale of 0-8 with 0 being uninfected and 8 being dead


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of adverse events in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Baseline to Day 42 ]
    Safety and tolerability will be determined according to clinically relevant reported adverse events

  2. Number of patients with an improvement in clinical status score in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 42 ]
    Point changes in clinical status score will be measured using the WHO Ordinal Scale for Clinical Improvement

  3. Number of patients with a deterioration in clinical status score in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 42 ]
    Point changes in clinical status score will be measured using the WHO Ordinal Scale for Clinical Improvement

  4. Number of patients with at least 95% oxygen saturation on room air in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 14 ]
    Oxygen saturation will be measured as per local standard procedures

  5. Time to patients with at least 95% oxygen saturation on room air in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 14 ]
    Oxygen saturation will be recorded daily during hospitalisation to determine the mean time for each arm to reach at least 95% saturation

  6. Number of patients with an improvement in the National Early Warning Score (NEWS) 2 in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 14 ]
    The NEWS 2 is based on aggregate scoring of physiological measurements including respiration rate, oxygen saturation, systolic blood pressure, pulse rate, level of consciousness and temperature

  7. Number of patients with an deterioration in the National Early Warning Score (NEWS) 2 in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 14 ]
    The NEWS 2 is based on aggregate scoring of physiological measurements including respiration rate, oxygen saturation, systolic blood pressure, pulse rate, level of consciousness and temperature

  8. Number of patients requiring Continuous Positive Airway Pressure in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 14 ]
    Details of required respiratory support will be recorded throughout hospitalisation

  9. Number of patients requiring Intermittent Positive Pressure Ventilation in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 14 ]
    Details of required respiratory support will be recorded throughout the treatment period

  10. Time to patients requiring Continuous Positive Airway Pressure in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 14 ]
    Details of required respiratory support will be recorded throughout the treatment period

  11. Time to patients requiring Intermittent Positive Pressure Ventilation in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 14 ]
    Details of required respiratory support will be recorded throughout the treatment period

  12. Time to discharge in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 42 ]
    Length of hospital stay will be compared

  13. Number of deaths in each treatment arm [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 42 ]
    All cause mortality will be compared
