Protocol STRI12 - Study to Reinforce Immunity (STRI) - A Phase 2 Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study to Investigate the Safety and Efficacy of STRI Formula in Non-Hospitalized Participants with COVID-19 (the Study)

Full description

The Study to Reinforce Immunity (STRI) Phase 2 Clinical Trial is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial protocol assessing the safety and efficacy of STRI Formula in non-hospitalized participants with COVID-19. STRI Formula is a combination of food-based substances designed specifically to combat SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The primary objective of the Study is to assess the efficacy of STRI Formula in reduction of time from treatment initiation to initial meaningful clinical improvement in COVID-19 symptoms. Additional secondary objectives are as follows: To assess the safety of STRI Formula To assess the efficacy of STRI Formula in reduction of time to COVID-19 sustained symptom improvement To assess the efficacy of STRI Formula in reduction of time to COVID-19 initial symptom resolution To assess the efficacy of STRI Formula in reduction of time to COVID-19 sustained symptom resolution To assess the efficacy of STRI Formula in reduction in need for hospitalization To assess the efficacy of STRI Formula in reduction in rates of fever To assess the efficacy of STRI Formula in reduction in rates of hypoxia

  • At least TWO participant self-reported responses of "Somewhat," "Quite A Bit," or "Very Much" in any FLU-PRO Plus domain other than smell and taste (i.e., nose, throat, eyes, chest/respiratory, head, gastrointestinal, or body/systemic domains)
  • Ability to self-measure and self-report body temperature, and peripheral oxygen saturation (with STRI provided thermometer and STRI provided pulse oximeter).
  • Provision of signed and dated electronic informed consent form (via 21 CFR Part 11 compliant platform).
  • Provision of participant's primary care physician (PCP) name and phone number.
  • Consent to allow STRI Personnel to contact PCP for any reason and discuss participant's medical history and/or obtain participant's medical records.

  • Willingness to discontinue any dietary supplement that contains any active ingredient in STRI Formula (ascorbic acid, cholecalciferol, zinc, copper, quercetin, hesperidin, caffeic acid, epigallocatechin gallate, bovine lactoferrin) for the duration of the Study.
  • For men and women with child-bearing potential (as defined below), willingness to use adequate contraception for at least 100 days after beginning the Study.

Exclusion criteria
