The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of repurposed medications (study drug(s) in reducing symptoms of non-hospitalized participants with mild to moderate COVID-19. Participants will receive either study drug or placebo. They will self-report any new or... expand

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of repurposed medications (study drug(s) in reducing symptoms of non-hospitalized participants with mild to moderate COVID-19. Participants will receive either study drug or placebo. They will self-report any new or worsening symptoms or medical events they may experience while taking study drug or placebo. This study is intended to be all remote with no in person visits, unless the study team feels it is in the best interest of a participant to see them in person.

The overarching goal of the Master Protocol is to find effective strategies for inpatient management of patients with COVID-19. Therapeutic goals for patients hospitalized for COVID-19 include hastening recovery and preventing progression to critical illness, multiorgan failure,... expand

The overarching goal of the Master Protocol is to find effective strategies for inpatient management of patients with COVID-19. Therapeutic goals for patients hospitalized for COVID-19 include hastening recovery and preventing progression to critical illness, multiorgan failure, or death. Our objective is to determine whether modulating the host tissue response improves clinical outcomes among patients with COVID-19.

The term post-acute COVID-19 syndrome or Long COVID is a disabling syndrome that persists beyond the 3-month convalescence period after COVID-19 infections. This syndrome affects mostly women (~80%), present with chronic tachycardia and Orthostatic intolerance symptoms without any identifiable cause. In addition, non-specific symptoms such as fatigue, headache, and "brain fog", commonly described in POTS patients are also present in this novel condition, recently named post-COVID-19 tachycardia syndrome, POTS variant. Reduced Vagal activity and unresolved inflammation is post-COVID-19 POTS is hypothesized as the cause of Long COVID

Cognitive Training in Survivors of Covid-19: A Randomized Trial
Covid19 Cognitive Impairment
Preliminary evidence suggests that cognitive impairment is a common outcome experienced by individuals surviving Covid-19 (1-5). Cognitive impairment following Covid-19 which leads to critical illness is not surprising and perhaps even expected. However, significant cognitive... expand

Preliminary evidence suggests that cognitive impairment is a common outcome experienced by individuals surviving Covid-19 (1-5). Cognitive impairment following Covid-19 which leads to critical illness is not surprising and perhaps even expected. However, significant cognitive deficits appear to be common even among individuals testing positive for Covid-19 who were never hospitalized. Questions exist regarding the mechanisms of the aforementioned cognitive impairment. The association between COVID-19 and brain dysfunction is not surprising since SARS-CoV has been found in the brain and because Coronaviridaes (CoVs) have been associated with central nervous system (CNS) diseases such as acute viral encephalopathy, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, and multiple sclerosis (6-11).The possible brain entry routes for CoVs include either direct intranasal access to the brain via olfactory nerves or indirect access by crossing the blood-brain barrier (BBB) via hematogenous or lymphatic spread (9).

COVID-19, a novel coronavirus, has caused widespread mortality and morbidity since it emerged in 2019. There is ongoing research and growing literature describing severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-COV-2). There is a growing population of individuals who have recovered from acute SARS-COV-2 infection. The long-term effects of COVID-19 are unknown. There are growing reports of sequelae after acute SARS-CoV-2 not limited to fatigue, dyspnea, reactive airway disease, organizing pneumonia, pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary emboli, and tracheal disease. The incidence and natural history of these findings is unstudied.

The study investigators are interested in learning more about how drugs, that are given to children by their health care provider, act in the bodies of children and young adults in hopes to find the most safe and effective dose for children. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the PK of understudied drugs currently being administered to children per SOC as prescribed by their treating provider.
