Objective: To assess the effect of Remedisvir, its safety Profile, and efficacy among COVID-19 patients. Study Design: Retrospective Observational study. Setting: South East Hospital and Research Center, Islamabad, Pakistan. Period: December 2020 to July 2021. Material & Methods: 100 patients were included in this study who received Remedisvir infusion, day 5, 7, and 10 after admitting the hospital with COVID-19 symptoms. We infuse 200mg I/V Remedisvir in 100cc N/S followed by 100mg I/V daily into 100cc N/S. After infusion, all patients were monitored strictly. Results: The mean age of the patients was (51. 89±15.441). The outcome of Remedisvir showed that 14% improved their condition, 42% discharged with oxygen, 27% discharged without oxygen, and only 17% expired). Remedisvir showed a positive effect at (p≤0.001) among laboratory values and oxygen support category. Conclusion: When patient suffering from COVID-19 symptoms and low oxygen saturation show good clinical outcome treated with Remedisvir. According to the results of our study, it is concluded that, at present Remedisvir remains a good drug, it shows a positive effect on oxygen saturation and length of hospital stay.

BACKGROUND: COVID-19 was detected in China in December 2019. The rapid dissemination and novelty of the disease resulted in an epidemic. This study aimed to identify biochemical parameters at admission that can be used to categorize severity and outcome of COVID -19 infection. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This cross-sectional study was conducted at Allied Hospitals of RMU from April 2020 to July 2020. It included 128 randomly selected confirmed COVID-19 patients. At admission, biochemical profile (total bilirubin, alanine aminotransferases {ALT}, aspartate aminotransferases {AST}, urea, creatinine, uric acid, sodium, potassium, and chloride were correlated with severity and outcome of COVID-19 by employing t-tests and ANOVA where required. Cut-off values to predict disease severity and outcome were calculated using ROC curve. RESULTS: The study comprised 46.1% non-severe, 29.7% severe, and 24.2% critical COVID-19 patients. 84.4% patients improved and 15.6% expired. Urea was increased in critical disease patients (p < 0.000). Higher ALT (p 0.030) and AST (p 0.004) levels were noted in severe and critical disease. Sodium (p 0.001) and chloride (p 0.026) were decreased in critical disease. Patients who expired had increased urea (p 0.000), ALT (p 0.040) and AST (p 0.002). At admission, urea >42.7 mg (sensitivity of 64.7%, specificity of 87.5%), AST >43.5 IU/L (64% sensitivity, 60% specificity), and sodium <136.9 mmol/L (sensitivity of 70.6%, specificity of 71.2%) predicted critical COVID-19 infection. CONCLUSION: At admission, increased urea, AST, and ALT along with decreased sodium can help in identifying COVID-19 patients with severe illness and poor outcome.
