Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE The Efficacy of Different Anti-viral Drugs in COVID 19 Infected Patients
Official Title  ICMJE The (Norwegian) NOR Solidarity Multicenter Trial on the Efficacy of Different Anti-viral Drugs in SARS-CoV-2 Infected Patients
Brief Summary The (World Health Organization) WHO NOR- (Coronavirus infectious disease) COVID 19 study is a multi-centre, adaptive, randomized, open clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of hydroxychloroquine, remdesivir and standard of care in hospitalized adult patients diagnosed with COVID-19. This trial will follow the core WHO protocol but has additional efficacy, safety and explorative endpoints.
