This study is designed to test the efficacy and safety of combinations of two well-understood agents - famotidine and celecoxib. Each of these agents separately demonstrate clinical activity in mitigating COVID-19 disease symptoms or severity, and each of which appear to have separate and complementary mechanisms of action.


Qualifying patients will have been confirmed positive for COVID-19 and have symptoms of World Health Organization (WHO) Ordinal Scale for Clinical Improvement with scores of ≤3 on the 11-point scale and will be randomly assigned, in a 1:1 ratio, to one of two regimens, with 659 participants per group, as follows:

Group 1 (study product) participants will receive 80 mg famotidine by mouth (PO) 4 times per day (QID) + 400 mg celecoxib as a first dose, followed by 200 mg celecoxib (PO) 2 times per day (BID), for 5 days. Following this 5-day period, participants will continue their famotidine treatment for an additional 9 days.

Group 2 (reference therapy) participants will receive matching placebos QID and BID, for 5 days. Following this 5-day period, participants will continue to receive matching famotidine placebo, QID, for an additional 9 days.

Safety and efficacy of famotidine and celecoxib will be evaluated.

This is a completely virtual trial and you can participate from your own home. Please call 1-888-370-9330 to speak to someone regarding study participation in your area.
