More about REMAP-CAP
- REMAP-CAP is a nationally-prioritised COVID-19 study. See the full list Urgent Public Health COVID-19 Studies on the NIHR website.

The primary purpose of this study is to generate evidence that can be applied during the coronavirus pandemic in order to reduce deaths, Intensive Care Unit (ICU) use, and morbidity in severely ill patients with COVID-19 infection.
It is a fully adaptive, platform trial, meaning several different treatments can be tested at the same time under one ‘platform’ – and more treatments can be added as new evidence emerges.
