Brief Summary:

Introduction: The SARS Co-2 contagious rate is high (Ro: 2.0-3.0). The infection is aggressive with high pathogenicity. Global confinement impacts all social and economic fields of human activity. Clinical behavior exceeds the capabilities of public health care. With the initial information on the pandemic, it is estimated that 20% of health personnel in direct contact with patients can acquire the disease, despite preventive self-care. The molecular relationship of COVID-19 with the subject's ACE2 protein encourages the virus to enter the host cell, and initiates replication and the immune response, causing an imbalance generating an immunological storm of cytokines, with serious damage to the host.

Objective: It is proposed to supply a combined scheme of two compounds by oropharyngeal spray that capture the virus before entering the target cell and orally administer immunomodulatory compounds that regulate the inflammatory response released by the virus, in order to improve the antiviral response.

Methodology: A controlled, parallel design, triple blind, phase II clinical trial will be conducted with four study groups to compare the active compounds (oropharyngeal spray and capsule) with placebo.

Discussion: With the application of the combined scheme of two compounds, a 75% reduction in infection is expected in health providers in direct contact with COVID patients.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 300 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

Combination of an oropharyngeal spray and an oral immunostimulant agent for the prevention of COVID-19 infection in healthcare providers in Medellín-Antioquia. Randomized clinical trial, parallel design, triple-blind, phase II.

Combination of an oropharyngeal spray and an oral immunostimulant agent for the prevention of COVID-19 infection in healthcare providers in Medellín-Antioquia. Randomized clinical trial, parallel design, triple-blind, phase II.

A four arm RCT is stipulated, in the following manner:

Group A: Active principle spray + Active principle capsules. Group B: Placebo spray + Active principle capsules. Group C: Active principle spray + Placebo capsules. Group D: Placebo spray + Placebo capsules.

Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description: Once the participant has given its informed consent, and the research team has verified the fulfillment of the inclusion criteria, the prospect receives a text message, to be directed to the pharmaceutical service. The numbered scheme will be dispensed with the code of the intervention, following the order from the allocation listing, provided by the CTCC. The head of the pharmaceutical service will register the date and time of the first dose. He will provide indications for the use, handling and conservation of the products. Warning signs and symptoms and instructions for communication with the research team to address any concern the subject may have will be reviewed. He will remind the subject to avoid its damage or loss. He will give the participant instructions to return the container and surpluses of the products at the end of the trial (day 30), he will point out that they are for personal use only and that they cannot be shared.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Seroconversion of IgM for COVID-19. [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Seroconversion of IgM for COVID-19. Result of positive IgM antibodies: A previously scheduled closure visit will be conducted, the trial product will be interrupted if a case is classified as severe-critical, and clinical follow up will be continued as planned. As protocols by the Health Ministry dictate, cases will be confirmed with a PCR-RT test, for the diagnosis of COVID-19. The result of the test will be requested to document the outcome.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Seroconversion of IgG for COVID-19. [ Time Frame: through study completion, 45 days ]
    seroconversion of IgG
