Brief Summary:
This is a phase 2 double-blind, randomized study of PBI-0451 in nonhospitalized symptomatic adults with COVID-19. PBI-0451 is a new chemical entity and inhibitor of the main protease of coronaviruses, including the SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19 disease. This study is designed to evaluate the antiviral activity, safety, and efficacy of orally administered PBI-0451 compared with placebo.

  3. To evaluate the effect of PBI-0451 on SARS-CoV-2 [ Time Frame: Day 1-28 ]
    Presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus, viral RNA or viral antigen based on IVA, quantitative reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR), and rapid antigen test (RAT), as specified in the Clinical Virology Analysis Plan (CVAP)


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. To evaluate SARS-CoV-2 resistance to PBI-0451 [ Time Frame: Day 1-28 ]
    Sequence analysis of the SARS-CoV-2 main protease (Mpro) gene (nsp5) and Mpro cleavage sites

  2. To evaluate SARS-CoV-2 resistant variant susceptibility to PBI-0451 [ Time Frame: Day 1-28 ]
    Susceptibility analysis of SARS-CoV-2 variants with Mpro amino acid substitutions and variants with substitutions in Mpro cleavage sites in the SARS-CoV-2 polyprotein

  3. To evaluate the relationship between SARS-CoV-2 detection methods [ Time Frame: Day 1-28 ]
    Correlation of SARS-CoV-2 detection by IVA, RAT, and qRT-PCR, as specified in the CVAP

  4. To evaluate the incidence of rebound SARS-CoV-2 infection [ Time Frame: Day 1-28 ]
    Proportion of subjects with clinical and/or virologic rebound

  5. To evaluate plasma concentrations of a dose of PBI-0451 to determine AUC from an intensive PK substudy of up to 50 subjects [ Time Frame: Any study visit Day 1-5 ]
    Area under the plasma concentration-time profile from Time zero (predose) to end of dosing interval (up to 12 hours postdose)

  6. To evaluate plasma concentrations of a dose of PBI-0451 to determine Cmax from an intensive PK substudy of up to 50 subjects [ Time Frame: Any study visit Day 1-5 ]
    Maximum concentration is estimated based on the plasma concentrations from Time zero (predose) to end of dosing interval (up to 12 hours postdose)

  7. To evaluate plasma concentrations of a dose of PBI-0451 to determine Tmax from an intensive PK substudy of up to 50 subjects [ Time Frame: Any study visit Day 1-5 ]
    Tmax is the time to maximum concentration from Time zero (predose) to end of dosing interval (up to 12 hours postdose)

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:
