Efficacy and Safety of Favipiravir, an Oral RNA-Dependent RNA Polymerase Inhibitor, in Mild-to-Moderate COVID-19: A Randomized, Comparative, Open-Label, Multicenter, Phase 3 Clinical Trial
RCT with 75 favipiravir patients and 75 control patients showing reduced time to clinical cure and reduced time of viral shedding.
Udwadia et al., 11/16/2020, Randomized Controlled Trial, India, South Asia, peer-reviewed, 11 authors.
recovery time, 40.0% lower, relative time 0.60, p = 0.03, treatment 75, control 75.
time to viral-, 29.0% lower, relative time 0.71, p = 0.13, treatment 75, control 75.
Effect extraction follows pre-specified rules
prioritizing more serious outcomes. For an individual study the most serious
outcome may have a smaller number of events and lower statistical signficance,
however this provides the strongest evidence for the most serious outcomes
when combining the results of many trials.
