Brief Summary:
The trial is randomized, blinded, two arms, active comparator controlled, clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Mycobacterium w in combination with standard care as per hospital practice versus standard care alone in critically ill adult patients suffering from COVID-19 infection.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
COVID-19 Drug: Suspension of heat killed (autoclaved) Mycobacterium w Drug: Placebo Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

In this study, Eligible patients will be enrolled after due consent and will be randomized in balance to receive either test drug (along with the standard of care) or Placebo (along with the standard of care). The enrolled patients will be monitored for any adverse events (AEs) or serious adverse events (SAEs) throughout the study period. All patients will continue to receive standard therapy till considered requisite by the treating physician.

In addition to the standard care for COVID-19, patients randomized to test arm will receive single daily dose of 0.3 ml of Mw, intradermal, for 3 consecutive days while patients randomized to control arm will receive single daily dose of 0.3 ml of Placebo, intradermal, for 3 consecutive days.

Study duration for each patient will be upto 28 days post-randomization.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 7-category ordinal scale that ranges from 1 (not hospitalized with resumption of normal activities) to 7 (death) [ Time Frame: Change in Ordinal scale from baseline to day 3, day 7, day 14, day 21 and day 28 and day of transfer from ICU, if discharged earlier than 28 days post-randomization. ]
    To study the effect of Mw on recovery of organ function as assessed by Ordinal scale

  2. Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) scores [ Time Frame: Change in SOFA score from baseline to day 3, day 7, day 14, day 21 and day 28 and day of transfer from ICU, if discharged earlier than 28 days post-randomization. ]
    To study the effect of Mw on recovery of organ function as assessed by Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) which is based on six different scores, one for each of the respiratory, cardiovascular, hepatic, coagulation, renal and neurological systems each scored from 0 to 4 with an increasing score reflecting worsening organ dysfunction


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of AE / SAE or event of clinical significance [ Time Frame: Till day 28 ]
    Any AE / SAE or event of clinical significance observed during the study.

  2. SARS-CoV-2 detectable in nasal or oropharyngeal (OP) sample [ Time Frame: At days 3, 7, 14, 21, and 28 ]
    Percent of subjects with SARS-CoV-2 detectable in nasal or oropharyngeal (OP) sample.

  3. ICU length of stay [ Time Frame: Till day 28 ]
    ICU length of stay

  4. Duration of mechanical ventilation [ Time Frame: Till day 28 ]
    Duration of mechanical ventilation

  5. Duration of hospitalization [ Time Frame: Till day 28 ]
    Duration of hospitalization

  6. Clinical improvement [ Time Frame: From baseline to day 14 & Day 28 ]
    Percentage of subjects having clinical improvement defined as two-point improvement on a seven category ordinal scale.

  7. Time (in days) from treatment initiation to death [ Time Frame: Till day 28 ]
    Time (in days) from treatment initiation to death.

  8. All-cause mortality [ Time Frame: Till day 28 ]
    All-cause mortality
