Details and patient eligibility

About

The purpose of this study is to test whether Fisetin, a senolytic drug, can assist in preventing an increase in the disease's progression and alleviate complications of coronavirus due to an excessive inflammatory reaction.

Full description

To determine if Fisetin treatment can prevent deterioration of oxygenation status as measured by S/F ratio: SpO2/ FiO2, as well as prevent deterioration in physical function (frailty) and hyper-inflammation, other measures of oxygenation status (progression to supplemental oxygen requirement, assisted breathing/ ventilation), and progression from mild/ moderate to severe/ critical proven SARS-CoV-2 infection in hospitalized patients and to evaluate the safety and tolerability of Fisetin in this patient population.

Medication Exclusion Criteria (See Appendices 1-3 for additional information)

  • Known hypersensitivity or allergy to Fisetin.
  • Patients currently using medications which utilize CYP450 2C9 for metabolism. These medications include: Fosphenytoin, Phenytoin, Warfarin, Glimepiride, Diclofenac, Bosentan, and Glyburide. Patients taking any of these medications may participate if the medications can be held immediately before the 1st IP administration until at least 10 hours after the last (2nd) IP administration and the patient is otherwise eligible.
  • Patients currently using medications which utilize CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP1A2, OATP1B1. These medications include: Olanzapine, Clozapine, Theophylline, Tizanidine, Warfarin, Rameltoen, Tacrine, Duloxetine, Mexiletine, Riluzole, and Atomoxetine. Patients taking any of these medications may participate if the medications can be held immediately before the 1st IP administration until at least 10 hours after the last (2nd) IP administration and the patient is otherwise eligible.
  • Patients currently using medications which are strong inhibitors of CYP3A4. These medications include: Atazanavir, Ceritinib, Clarithromycin, Darunavir, Idelalisib, Indinavir, Itraconazole, Ketoconazole, Lopinavir, Mefipristone, Nefazodone, Nelfinavir, Ombitasivir-paritaprevir-ritonivir, Ombitasivir-paritaprevir-ritonivir-plus dasabuvir, Posaconazole, Saquinavir, Telithromycin, Tucatinib, and Voriconazole. Patients taking any of these medications may participate if the medications can be held immediately before the 1st IP administration until at least 10 hours after the last (2nd) IP administration and the patient is otherwise eligible.
  • Patients currently using antifungals. If antifungals are absolutely necessary from an infectious disease perspective, then they will be allowed only if the levels are subtherapeutic or therapeutic.

Patients taking any of these medications may participate if the medications can be held immediately before the 1st IP administration until at least 10 hours after the last (2nd) IP administration and the patient is otherwise eligible:

  • Cardiac: digoxin, flecainide, amiodarone
  • Psychiatric: lithium, thioridazine
  • Neurologic: carbamazepine, phenobarbital
  • Antimicrobial/fungal: aminoglycosides (e.g. amikacin, gentamicin, kanamycin, neomycin, netilmicin, paromomysin, streptomycin, tobramycin), rifampin
  • Anticoagulants/ Antiplatelets: warfarin
  • Others: methotrexate, nitroglycerin, St. John's wort, tyrosine kinase inhibitors, tacrine, diclofenac
  • Participation in other clinical trials involving treatment for SARS-CoV-2. (unless reviewed and approved by the Principal Investigator). Note that institutional standard of care treatment of SARS-CoV-2 including glucocorticoids, hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, remdesivir, anti-spike antibodies, and/or convalescent plasma are not excluded from the study.
