Brief Summary:
Determine the efficacy and safety of COVID19-0001-USR in the treatment of SARS-COV-2 infection in mild to moderate manifestations administered via nebulization/inhalation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
SARS-CoV-2 Infection Drug: Drug COVID19-0001-USR Drug: normal saline Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is an interventional, randomized controlled, double-blind study (i.e., active and passive control), 1 intervention group will be randomized with COVID 19-001-USR, and a control group to receive a placebo intervention to assess efficacy, tolerance, and decrease viral load and clinical manifestation on patients infected with SARS-COV-2. This will be a self-administered study drug 3 times a day for 7 days

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 60 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Interventional study, randomized controlled, double-blind (i.e., active and passive control), 1 intervention group with investigative medicine, and a control group that will receive placebo intervention.
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Masking Description: The mapping sequence will be hidden from the researcher by enrolling and evaluating participants in sequentially numbered, sealed, and stapled envelopes. To avoid the subversion of the allocation sequence, the name and date of birth of the participant will be written in the envelope, a second researcher verifies the process. The corresponding envelopes will be opened only after the enrolled participants complete all the reference assessments and assignment of the intervention by the protocol
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Two-arm Randomized Double-blind Study With COVID19-0001-USR Administered Via Nebulization to Patients With Mild and/or Moderate Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-COV-2) Infection to Decrease Viral Load
Actual Study Start Date : November 2, 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 30, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : August 30, 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: COVID19-0001-USR
Group 1 Patients with SARS-COV-2 (COVID19) positive test will receive Investigational Drug administer by nebulization ( COVID-19-0001-USR) Dosage: 3ml Frequency and Duration: Three times a day for 7 days
Drug: Drug COVID19-0001-USR
COVID19-0001-USR by nebulization for patients with mild and/or moderate SARS- COV-2
Other Name: Nebulized

Placebo Comparator: Normal Saline
Group 2 of patients with positive tests intervention SARS-COV-2 (COVID19) with placebo (i.e., normal saline 0.9% NS) plus standard baseline treatment for covid provided by Primary care provider ( Azithromycin, dexamethasone, and/or anticoagulants) Dosage: 3ml Frequency and Duration: Three times a day for 7 days
Drug: normal saline
0.9% NS via nebulization
Other Name: 0.9% NS

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change on viral load results from baseline after using COVID19-0001-USR via nebulization [ Time Frame: Treatment Period of 7 days ]
    COVID19-0001-USR 1% nebulized pathway changes viral load of SARS-COV-2 virus (COVID19) in the upper and lower airways if started during the initial phase of infection
