Brief Summary:
This is an interventional, pilot, multicenter, randomized, open-label, phase 2 study, enrolling patients with COVID-19 disease. One-month rate of entering the critical stage (either a. Respiratory failure occurs and requires mechanical ventilation; b. Patients combined with other organ failure need ICU monitoring and treatment; c. Death) is the primary endpoint.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
COVID-19 Drug: Colchicine 1 MG Oral Tablet Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is an interventional, pilot, multicenter, randomized, open-label, phase 2 study, enrolling patients with COVID-19 disease. Participants will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive Colchicine plus current care versus current care.

One-month rate of entering the critical stage (either a. Respiratory failure occurs and requires mechanical ventilation; b. Patients combined with other organ failure need ICU monitoring and treatment; c. Death) is the primary endpoint. Secondary objectives are trend of White blood cell count, Change of the "Sequential Organ failure Assessment" (SOFA), Rate of biochemical criterion (CK, ALT,ferritin) recovery, Rate of disease remission and safety of Colchicine.
