Cohort Multiple Randomized Controlled Trials Open-label of Immune Modulatory Drugs and Other Treatments in COVID-19 Patients – Sarilumab Trial – CORIMUNO-19 – SARI

Overview

The overall objective of the study is to determine the therapeutic effect and tolerance of Sarilumab in patients with moderate, severe pneumonia or critical pneumonia associated with Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Sarilumab is a human IgG1 monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to both soluble and membrane-bound IL-6Rs (sIL-6Rα and mIL-6Rα) and has been shown to inhibit IL-6-mediated signaling through these receptors. The study has a cohort multiple Randomized Controlled Trials (cmRCT) design. Randomization will occur prior to offering Sarilumab administration to patients enrolled in the CORIMUNO-19 cohort. Sarilumab will be administered to consenting adult patients hospitalized with COVID-19 either diagnosed with moderate or severe pneumonia requiring no mechanical ventilation or critical pneumonia requiring mechanical ventilation. Patients who will chose not to receive Sarilumab will receive standard of care. Outcomes of Sarilumab-treated patients will be compared with outcomes of standard of care-treated patients as well as with outcomes of patients treated with other immune modulators.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Survival without needs of ventilator utilization at day 14.
    • Time Frame: 14 days
    • Survival without needs of ventilator utilization (including non invasive ventilation and high flow) at day 14. Thus, events considered are needing ventilator utilization (including Non Invasive Ventilation, NIV or high flow), or death. New DNR order (if given after the inclusion of the patient) will be considered as an event at the date of the DNR.
  • WHO progression scale <=5 at day 4
    • Time Frame: 4 days
    • Proportion of patients alive without non-invasive ventilation of high low at day 4 (WHO progression scale ≤ 5). A patient with new DNR order at day 4 will be considered as with a score > 5. WHO progression scale: Uninfected; non viral RNA detected: 0 Asymptomatic; viral RNA detected: 1 Symptomatic; Independent: 2 Symptomatic; Assistance needed: 3 Hospitalized; No oxygen therapy: 4 Hospitalized; oxygen by mask or nasal prongs: 5 Hospitalized; oxygen by NIV or High flow: 6 Intubation and Mechanical ventilation, pO2/FIO2>=150 OR SpO2/FIO2>=200: 7 Mechanical ventilation, (pO2/FIO2<150 OR SpO2/FIO2<200) OR vasopressors (norepinephrine >0.3 microg/kg/min): 8 Mechanical ventilation, pO2/FIO2<150 AND vasopressors (norepinephrine >0.3 microg/kg/min), OR Dialysis OR ECMO: 9 Dead: 10
  • Cumulative incidence of successful tracheal extubation (defined as duration extubation > 48h) at day 14
    • Time Frame: 14 days
    • Cumulative incidence of successful tracheal extubation (defined as duration extubation > 48h) at day 14 if patients have been intubated before day 14 ; or removal of NIV or high flow (for > 48h) if they were included under oxygen by NIV or High flow (score 6) and remained without intubation. Death or new DNR order (if given after the inclusion of the patient) will be considered as a competing event.
  • WHO progression scale at day 4
    • Time Frame: 4 days
