Statement of support for the PRINCIPLE trial

The GHP are delighted to share this statement of support for the PRINCIPLE trial.

It is essential that we work together to identify treatments which will help hinder the progression of the disease and to reduce the need for hospital admissions.

PRINCIPLE, is a national trial led by researchers at the University of Oxford, including leading Pharmacist, Dr Mahendra Patel. It is investigating a number of treatment strategies to manage the symptoms of COVID-19.

The trial is evaluating medication which is well known and has been used for many years around the world for a number of conditions, to good effect. The objective is to determine if the treatment, when given to those at higher risk of becoming seriously ill with COVID-19, helps to reduce the need for hospitalisation, length of stay required, or if helps patients recover quicker.
PRINCIPLE is looking for volunteers who are unwell with COVID-19 symptoms to participate in their treatment trial. To help the fight against COVID-19 and for more information on joining the trial, visit www.principletrial.org.
