The PRINCIPLE trial is a nationwide clinical study from the University of Oxford to find Covid-19 treatments for the over 50's that can be taken at home.
It's looking for medicines that can help people with Covid-19 symptoms get better quickly and stop them needing to go into hospital.

Principle Study

ATTACK – Aspirin To Target Arterial Events in Chronic Kidney Disease

Why is the this study important?

It is estimated that there are at least 5 million people with Chronic Kidney Disease in the UK that are at increased risk of Cardiovascular Disease – this trial should give the evidence required to prove one way or the other whether aspirin should be offered to our patients with Chronic Kidney Disease to prevent heart disease or a stroke.




GLoW – Glucose Lowering Through Weight Management


Why is this study important?

Type 2 diabetes is typically characterised as an irreversible condition. However, there is evidence that people with Type 2 diabetes can achieve good glucose control or even remission through weight loss. This trial will looks at whether a tailored behavioural weight management programme achieves better glucose control than education alone and whether any improvements in health and wellbeing justify the higher cost of the programme.
