Official Title  ICMJE Randomized, Embedded, Multifactorial Adaptive Platform Trial for Community- Acquired Pneumonia
Brief Summary

REMAP-CAP is a randomised, embedded, multifactorial, adaptive platform trial for community-acquired pneumonia.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of a range of interventions to improve outcome ofon patients admitted to intensive care with community-acquired pneumonia.

In addition, REMAP-CAP provides and adaptive research platform for evaluation of multiple treatment modalities in the event of a respiratory pandemic resulting in critical illness.

Detailed Description

Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) that is of sufficient severity to require admission to an intensive care unit (ICU) is associated with substantial mortality.

Patients with pneumonia who are being treated in an ICU will receive therapy that consists of many different treatments, as many as 20 or 30. These treatments act together to treat both the infection and its effects on the body. When treating a patient, doctors choose from many different treatments, most of which are known or believed to be safe and effective. However, doctors don't always know which treatment option is the better one, as individuals or groups of individuals may respond differently. This study aims to help doctors understand which treatments work best.

This clinical study has been designed in a way that allows the information from patients already in the study to help new patients joining the study. Most studies aren't able to do that. REMAP-CAP has been designed to:

  • Evaluate multiple treatment strategies, at the same time, in the same patient.
  • Reach platform conclusions when sufficient data is accrued, rather than when a pre-specified sample size is reached
  • Utilise data that is already accrued to increase the likelihood that patients within the trial are randomised to treatments that are more likely to be beneficial
  • New questions can be substituted into the trial as initial questions are answered, meaning that the trial can be perpetual or open-ended
  • Interactions between interventions in different domains can be evaluated
