New patients are currently being enrolled in the University of Illinois at Chicago’s second clinical trial to study the drug remdesivir as a treatment for COVID-19.

 According to the college, the international randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial will study the antiviral drug in combination with an anti-inflammatory drug used to treat rheumatoid arthritis called baricitinib.

This trial follows the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease’s Adaptive COVID-19 Treatment Trial in which results showed that patients who were treated with remdesivir recovered faster than those who were in the control group and received a placebo.
