Guidelines update, v35.1

04 March, 2021

Updates to the Australian guidelines for the clinical care of people with COVID-19 this week include:

  • TocilizumabThe references for REMAP-CAP and COVACTA (Rosas et al.) trials have been updated to reflect the published versions of the previously pre-print only articles – there was no change to the strength or direction of recommendation.
  • ZincText within the ‘section text’ of zinc has been updated to reflect the identification of one new trial that is undergoing analysis (Patel et al. J Med Virol doi: 10.1002/jmv.26895).
  • IvermectinText has been added to the ‘Summary’ section of the evidence tab regarding the ineligibility of a previously identified trial for inclusion (Okumus et al), as assignment to the groups was not truly random.

Note: The newly identified studies listed above are currently under review and updated recommendations will be included in future versions of the guidelines.
