The National Institutes of Health today announced the start of an adaptive phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of three immune modulator drugs in hospitalized adults with COVID-19.

NIH said the ACTIV-1 Immune Modulators trial will seek to determine if modulating immune responses that trigger so-called cytokine storms can reduce the need for ventilators and shorten hospital stays and whether the trialed therapeutics are able to restore balance to an overactive immune system.
