PRINCIPLE – Platform trial of Interventions against COVID-19 in older people

PRINCIPLE is a nationwide clinical study from the University of Oxford to find COVID-19 treatments for the over 50’s that can be taken at home.  We are looking for medicines that can help people with COVID-19 symptoms get better quickly and stop them needing to go to hospital.

PRINCIPLE is still open to those who have received a COVID-19 vaccination. 

The study is evaluating usual care or usual care plus inhaled budesonide (a commonly used inhaled corticosteroid). 

You will be eligible if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms which started within the last 14 days if you are aged over 65, or if aged over 50 with an underlying health condition.

The PRINCIPLE trial is entirely remote.  You can participate from the comfort of your own home from anywhere in the UK with no face-to-face visits required. The trial team and your own GP will be available for you to contact throughout.
