EXPERIMENTAL INFLUENZA TREATMENT FOR PATIENTS HOSPITALIZED WITH INFLUENZA

Research Volunteers Needed

Conducted by the Center for Vaccine Development
University of Maryland School of Medicine
Principal Investigator: Wilbur Chen, MD, MS
 

You may be eligible if:
  • have a diagnosis of influenza
  • be hospitalized for signs and symptoms of influenza
  • have either low room air saturation of oxygen (SaO2 < 93%) or tachypnea
  • agree to the storage of his/her specimens and data

INFLUENZA IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THOUSANDS OF HOSPITALIZATIONS ANNUALLY. Despite the availability of antiviral drugs, the influenza virus also causes a large number of deaths each year. Some patients have an increased risk of being seriously affected by influenza. A study is being conducted to assess a new therapy for hospitalized patients who are at risk for severe disease.

This randomized, open-label, multicenter phase 2 trial will assess the safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics of anti-influenza plasma in subjects with influenza. Hospitalized subjects with influenza who are at risk for severe disease will be eligible for study participation. Additionally, because of the morbidity caused by influenza in children and pregnant women, these groups will be included in this study.
