EU SolidAct – a pan-European platform for pandemic research and preparedness
There is an urgent need for rapid and coordinated investigation of new candidate drugs during pandemics. EU-SolidAct is an Adaptive Platform Trial developed to evaluate drug interventions in hospitalized patients with COVID-19 and to facilitate a joint European response to future pandemics. The first drug to be tested is baricitinib, a tablet prescribed for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. This drug has also shown promising results for patients with severe COVID-19.
EU-SolidAct has now started inclusion of patients in Norway and will recruit patients from around fifteen European countries. The trial is sponsored by Oslo University Hospital, Norway.
