REMAP-CAP: A Randomised, Embedded, Multi-factorial, Adaptive Platform Trial for Community-Acquired Pneumonia

Community-Acquired Pneumonia

Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a syndrome in which individuals who have not been hospitalised recently develop an acute infection of the lungs. Bacterial and viral infections are responsible for the vast majority of CAP. CAP that is severe enough to require admission to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is associated with substantial risk of mortality.

Response to COVID-19

REMAP-CAP has implemented the Pandemic Appendix to the Core Protocol so that the platform can respond rapidly in the event of widespread disease resulting from the novel 2019 coronavirus (COVID-19). These changes include:

  • Modification of the primary end-point, so that information is available more quickly
  • Description of the statistical model that will be used to analyse data for patients with proven or suspected pandemic infection
  • Description of changes to statistical thresholds for declaring an intervention to be equivalent, superior, or inferior to another
  • Specification of pathways that permit the Data Safety Monitoring Board to liaise directly with public health authorities if REMAP-CAP produces results that are of relevance to public health
