Authors: Hase R, Kurata R, Ishida K, Kurita T, Muranaka E, Mito H Abstract A 42-year-old man exhibiting hypoxia was diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019. He had medical histories of type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hyperuricemia, and gout attack. He received favipiravir for compassionate use for 14 days. Subsequently, he showed increased uric acid levels and developed acute gouty arthritis. Favipiravir may induce not only hyperuricemia but also acute gouty arthritis. It should therefore be used with caution in patients with a history of gout and those with hyperuricemia, especially when used at a higher dose and...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: We aimed to observe the clinical characteristics of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients with overweight and obesity. METHODS: Consecutive COVID-19 patients from 10 hospitals of Jiangsu province, China were enrolled. RESULTS: 297 COVID-19 patients were included. 39.39% and 13.47% of patients were overweight and obese, respectively. The proportions of bilateral pneumonia (92.50% vs. 73.57%, P=0.033) and type 2 diabetes (17.50% vs. 3.57%, P=0.006) were higher in patients with obesity than lean patients. The proportions of severe illness in patients with overweight (12.82% vs. 2....

This study is open label.Numbers to be randomized (sample size)For Group 1, a sample size of about 2000 SARS-CoV-2-exposed subjects such as household members and/or contacts of COVID-19 patients will take part in the study. Assuming around 1.5-2.0 asymptomatic household members and/or contacts for each COVID-19 patient, we expect to identify approximately 1000-1300 COVID-19 index cases to be randomized. An interim analysis on efficacy is planned using standard alpha-spending function.For Group 2, sufficient power for primary objective (negative swab within 14 days of randomization) will be reached given a sample size of 30...
