COVID-19 Treatment: Dallas Clinical Trials Happening Now
COVID-19 is here to stay for now, and it is important that medicine and science evolve with it to learn as much as possible about the prevention and treatment of the virus. One of the ways pharmaceutical companies and scientists can move forward with research progress is through clinical trials. There are many benefits to becoming a participant in a clinical trial, including financial compensation and cutting-edge research and technology. If you have COVID-19 and are interested in emerging treatment methods, a COVID-19 treatment clinical trial in Dallas may be right for you.
Is There a Current Treatment for COVID-19?
There is currently no cure available for COVID-19. There is presently treatment medication available for COVID-19 in patients who are hospitalized. According to the FDA, On October 22, 2020, the FDA approved the antiviral drug Veklury (remdesivir) for use in adults and pediatric patients (12 years of age and older and weighing at least 40 kg) for the treatment of COVID-19 requiring hospitalization. Veklury should only be administered in a hospital or in a healthcare setting capable of providing acute care comparable to inpatient hospital care.
Also according to the FDA, people with COVID-19 should receive supportive care to help relieve symptoms. People with mild symptoms are able to recover at home. If you experience a medical emergency such as trouble breathing, call 911 and let the operator know you may have COVID-19. Never take prescription medicine or drugs if it is not prescribed for you by your doctor for your health condition.
Are COVID-19 Treatment Clinical Trials Safe?
Clinical trials are one of the most critical aspects of progressing research and science. Without testing medication or treatments on patients, the FDA cannot approve it for public use. At Epic Clinical Research, our studies are strictly controlled and professionally monitored to optimize patient safety and ensure the best possible results. While no treatment is guaranteed to be 100% safe for everyone, a clinical trial will ensure that the pros outweigh the cons for most people, and being the first to take part in it, as a participant, will help science for generations to come.
