Help change the future of COVID-19 treatment by participating in a major clinical trial designed to find effective treatments for people with mild to moderate COVID-19.

As our region's MUSC Health affiliate, we are helping recruit volunteers to participate in the ACTIV-6 research study, which is testing several medications approved for other diseases to see if they can help people with COVID-19 feel better and stay out of the hospital.


To be eligible, participants must:

  • Be at least 30 years old
  • Have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 10 days
  • Have had at least two of the following symptoms:
    • Feeling tired
    • Trouble breathing
    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Upset stomach
    • Vomiting
    • Diarrhea
    • Body aches or chills
    • Headache
    • Sore throat
    • Stuffy nose
    • New loss of sense of taste or smell

If you are selected to participate, you will:

  • Take either a study medication or placebo, as prescribed. A placebo is a medication that has no active ingredients and will have no effect.
  • Answer short surveys daily for 14-28 days. Surveys are taken online on a secure, private website. There are no in-person study visits.
  • Complete a follow-up survey after approximately 90 days.
  • Be part of a group of people across the U.S. who are helping find better treatments for COVID-19.
