COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Intervention is an aqueous buffered solution of 0.5% povidone-iodine (PVP-I) contained in a 30 mL bottle closed with a traditional nasal spray pump.
Subjects will receive a single dose to their nasal passages, administered by the investigator.
The amount a subject receives consists of 6 x 140µL pump actuations (3 into each nostril), being 0.84 mL total volume.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 323427 0
Impact of Nasodine on the reduction in virus in the nasal passages of subjects who are shedding the virus. Virus concentration is measured by PCR analysis of cell culture medium 96 hours after inoculation with a post-treatment nasal swab and compared to an equivalent culture inoculated with swab collected prior to treatment.
Timepoint [1] 323427 0
Endpoint is swab taken 5 minutes after dosing and compared against a swab taken 5 minutes prior to dosing.
Secondary outcome [1] 381912 0
Impact of Nasodine on the reduction in virus in the nasal passages of subjects who are shedding the virus. Virus concentration is measured by PCR analysis of cell culture medium 96 hours after inoculation with a post-treatment nasal swab and compared to an equivalent culture inoculated with swab collected prior to treatment.
Timepoint [1] 381912 0
Endpoint is swab taken 1 hour after dosing and compared against a swab taken 5 minutes prior to dosing.

Summary
Brief summary
The primary purpose of this pilot study is to provide an indication that the in vitro disinfectant activity seen against the SARS-CoV-2 virus translates to disinfection of the nasal cavity in vivo of COVID-19 patients. Other objectives include collecting data to guide follow-on clinical studies and to provide insights as to mode of action. Overall, the study will provide important insights into the potential role for a PVP-I nasal spray in managing the risk of infection by the virus.
