Brief Summary:
A randomised controlled trial of open label Prolectin-M; a (1-6)-alpha-D-Mannopyranose among patients with RT PCR positive COVID-19 patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
COVID-19 Other: Prolectin-M; a (1-6)-alpha-D-Mannopyranose class Other: Standard of Care Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

SarsCoV2 has infected over 20 million people worldwide. The virus has a unique protein structure enabling it to rapidly infect and spread among the population. COVID19 is a global health emergency and has affected lives of all people irrespective of being infected. There are no proven therapies and a vaccine is yet to be approved for wide public usage.

Our study aims to test a hypothesis of physically blocking the spike protein from infecting the human cells, thus promoting its rapid excretion from the infected person.

We will randomise 10 subjects in this proof of concept trial and test the hypothesis by measuring the effect of Prolectin-M; a (1-6)-alpha-D-Mannopyranose in reducing the viral copy numbers over 5 days of treatment. The absolute copy numbers will be measured on digital droplet PCR developed by BioRad. A fall in copy numbers by 2-fold from baseline will be considered a positive treatment effect in this population. All standard care measures currently being practiced for these patients will be continued.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Prolectin-M; a (1-6)-alpha-D-Mannopyranose class+Stand of care
Tablet chewed for 5 days along and given alongside standard of care
Other: Prolectin-M; a (1-6)-alpha-D-Mannopyranose class
A treatment to decrease viral load, detected through digital droplet PCR, in mild to moderate cases of RT-PCR positive COVID-19

Other: Standard of Care
Currently approved standard of care for patients without symptoms requiring hospitalisation will be provided to all.

No Intervention: Standard of Care
All patients will receive currently practiced standard of care medicines

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. SarsCoV2 viral copy number [ Time Frame: 7 days from randomisation ]
    Change in absolute viral copy number

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. b. Disease progression will be measured on a 7-point scale at 28 days. A 2-point change will be considered disease progression. [ Time Frame: 28 days from randomisation ]

    7-point severity score (ordinal scale):

    1. Not hospitalized, no limitations on activities
    2. Not hospitalized, limitation on activities;
    3. Hospitalized, not requiring supplemental oxygen;
    4. Hospitalized, requiring supplemental oxygen;
    5. Hospitalized, on non-invasive ventilation or high flow oxygen devices;
    6. Hospitalized, on invasive mechanical ventilation or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO);
    7. Death
