In an effort to contribute to the global research efforts into COVID-19, a team based at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKMCH&RC) in Lahore, Pakistan are leading the participation of five sites in the WHO-led SOLIDARITY Trial. The team have adapted and modified the protocol to fit the nature and resources of their setting and received ethical approval from their local review boards to conduct the trial across 5 sites.
What is vital at this time, is to provide SOP’s and study materials that can be accessed and used to support high-quality, rapid implementation of these critical COVID-19 studies in various settings. We know the true power of active sharing and the impact it can have to raise standards and speed up research.
Therefore, the team in Pakistan have generously provided access to the SOP's and documentation they have developed to support this trial at their sites.
