Study Of An Investigational Dietary Supplement In People Treated Outside Of The Hospital For Covid-19 Infection


Seeking men and women whose mild to moderate COVID-19 infection is being treated outside of the hospital for a study of an investigational dietary supplement on the bacteria of their digestive system or gut microbiome.


We are studying the effects of a food product on different types of bacteria that live in the digestive system, also called the gut microbiome, and effects on the health of people with COVID-19. The food product is made up of common sugars found in many other foods such as fruits, table sugar, and milk, and is not able to be digested, like a dietary fiber. The researchers also want to learn more about the safety of taking the dietary supplement and its side effects.

What we're hoping for

Evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a dietary supplement on digestive bacteria to influence overall health and infection for people whose COVID-19 infection is being treated outside of the hospital.
