No clinical benefit from use of hydroxychloroquine in hospitalised patients with COVID-19
5 June 2020
A new statement has been released from Professor Peter Horby and Professor Martin Landray, Chief Investigators of the RECOVERY Trial. RECOVERY was established in March as a randomised clinical trial to test a range of potential drugs for COVID-19, including hydroxycholoroquine. The trial has proceeded at unprecedented speed, enrolling over 11,000 patients from 175 NHS hospitals in the UK. The chief investigators have concluded that there is no beneficial effect of hydroxychloroquine in patients hospitalised with COVID-19.
