Brief Summary:
This is a proof of concept study to evaluate the efficacy of nitazoxanide (600 mg TID) to treat hospitalized patients with non-critical COVID-19.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
covid19 Drug: Nitazoxanide Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a proof of concept study to evaluate the efficacy of nitazoxanide (600 mg TID) to treat hospitalized patients with non-critical COVID-19.

The aim is to demonstrate a decrease in hospital related complications among patients who are hospitalized with moderate COVID-19 by treating them with nitazoxanide for 7 days on top of standard care compared to patients who receive standard care and placebo.

Patients hospitalized with confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 will be randomized to receive either nitazoxanide or placebo.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Viral load [ Time Frame: day 1, 4, 7, 14 and 21 ]
    PCR will be done to evaluate the change in viral load


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evolution of acute respiratory syndrome [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Time to wean off oxygen supplementation

  2. Change in Clinical Condition [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    WHO Ordinal Scale for Clinical Improvement that measures illness severity over time (0=uninfected; ambulatory, no limitation of activities=1; ambulatory, limitation of activities=2, hospitalized no oxygen therapy=3; hospitalized oxygen by mask or nasal prongs=4; hospitalized non invasive ventilation or high-flow oxygen=5; hospitalized intubation or mechanical ventilation=6; hospitalized ventilation + additional organ support=7; death=8)

  3. Hospital discharge [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Time to be discharged from hospital

  4. Rate of mortality within 21-days [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Evaluation of change in acute respiratory syndrome

  5. Need of mechanical ventilation [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    Evaluation of change in acute respiratory syndrome
