We have submitted a Substantial Amendment (number 19) to MHRA, REC and HRA. This amendment provides additional safety monitoring for participants in the empagliflozin comparison. Please ensure your R&D departments are aware. This amendment does not have implications for pharmacy. The .training will be updated once we receive approval and a summary of the changes will be provided to staff who have completed the current version.
Please note this amendment will change the PIS/ICF as well so, once approved, the new version will be available in the usual locations on the website. The documents submitted to the REC can be downloaded from the regulatory documents page.
The RECOVERY Trial protocol is available for use by investigators everywhere to design their own randomised trials that could help identify effective treatments for COVID-19.
