A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Pimodivir in Combination With the Standard-of-Care Treatment in Adolescent Adult and Elderly Hospitalized Participants With Influenza A Infection


Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: Influenza A
  • Age: Between 13 - 85 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Tested positive for influenza A infection after the onset of symptoms using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based or other rapid molecular diagnostic assay
  • Requires hospitalization to treat influenza infection and/or to treat complications of influenza infection (for example, radiological signs of lower respiratory tract disease, septic shock, central nervous system [CNS] involvement, myositis, rhabdomyolysis, acute exacerbation of chronic kidney disease, severe dehydration, myocarditis, pericarditis, ischemic heart disease, exacerbation of underlying chronic pulmonary disease, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [COPD], decompensation of previously controlled diabetes mellitus), including participants admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
  • Enrollment and initiation of study drug treatment less than or equal to (<=)96 hours after onset of influenza symptoms
  • Being on invasive mechanical ventilation or having a peripheral capillary oxygen saturation (SpO2) less than (<)94 percent (%) on room air during screening. Participants with known pre-influenza SpO2 <94% must have an SpO2 decline greater than or equal to (>=)3% from pre-influenza SpO2 during screening
  • Having a screening/baseline National Early Warning Score 2 (NEWS2) of >=4

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Received more than 3 doses of influenza antiviral medication (for example, oseltamivir [OST] or zanamivir), or any dose of ribavarin (RBV) within 2 weeks, prior to first study drug intake. Received intravenous (IV) peramivir more than one day prior to screening
  • Unstable angina pectoris or myocardial infarction within 30 days prior to screening (inclusive)
  • Presence of clinically significant heart arrhythmias, uncontrolled, unstable atrial arrhythmia, or sustained ventricular arrhythmia, or risk factors for Torsade de Pointes syndrome
  • Known severe hepatic impairment (Child Pugh C cirrhosis) or chronic hepatitis C infection undergoing hepatitis C antiviral therapy
  • Severely immunocompromised in the opinion of the investigator (for example, known cluster of differentiation 4 plus [CD4+] count <200 cells per cubic millimeter [cells/mm^3], absolute neutrophil count <750/mm^3, first course of chemotherapy completed within 2 weeks prior to screening, history of stem cell transplant within 1 year prior to screening, any history of a lung transplant)
  • Known allergies, hypersensitivity, or intolerance to pimodivir or its excipients
