Coagulopathy of COVID-19: A Pragmatic Randomized Controlled Trial of Therapeutic Anticoagulation Versus Standard Care

Approximately 20% of patients with severe COVID-19 experience coagulopathy. Throughout this study, investigators conducted a multi-center control trial to determine the effects of therapeutic anticoagulation compared to standard hospital care for patients admitted for COVID-19.

Anti-thrombotics for Adults Hospitalized with COVID-19 (ACTIV-4)

This randomized trial compared the effectiveness of antithrombotic strategies for patients with COVID-19.

COVID-19 Positive Outpatient Thrombosis Prevention in Adults Aged 40-80 (ACTIV-4b)

The ACTIV-4b trial evaluated the efficacy and safety of anti-thrombotic strategies in adult COVID-19 patients who did not require hospitalization at the time of their diagnosis.

COVID-19 Thrombosis Prevention Trials: Post-hospital Thromboprophylaxis

The ACTIV-4c trial is a multicenter, adaptive, randomized platform trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of antithrombotic strategies in patients with COVID-19 following hospital discharge.
