view all Clinical Trials


Study KIN-1901-2001 will consist of a 2-week treatment period (last dose Day 8, if administered) and a 22-week follow-up period, for a total study duration of 24 weeks for each subject. A total of 270 subjects (135 subjects per arm) who have a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 with clinical evidence of acute lung injury or ARDS will be entered into the trial.

Subjects will receive a high dose of gimsilumab on Day 1 and a low dose of gimsilumab on Day 8, or matching placebo (saline solution) on Day 1 and on Day 8. The Day 8 dose will be omitted if the subject is discharged from the hospital or is no longer in need of supplemental oxygen or ventilatory support for >48 hours.

The primary objective of Study KIN-1901-2001 is to evaluate the impact of IV treatment with gimsilumab on mortality in subjects with lung injury or ARDS secondary to COVID-19.
