Primary Care needed to boost recruitment into COVID research study

The UK led PRINCIPLE study is evaluating whether early treatment in the community speeds up recovery and reduces the need for hospitalisation.

The innovative study design enables people from anywhere in the UK to register and participate in the trial entirely remotely. 2,000 participants have been recruited so far but many more are needed. PRINCIPLE calls on the support of general practice to help identify potential participants, aged 50 and over with symptoms of COVID-19, and direct them to self-screen via the website to join the study.
