RCT with 60 hospitalized patients treated with Ayurcov and 60 control patients in India, showing improved viral clearance and faster symptom resolution in the mild/moderate group, but no significant differences in the severe group. Ayurcov contains curcuma longa, go ark, sphatika (alum), sita (rock candy), godugdham (bos indicus) milk, and goghritam (bos indicus ghee).
risk of death, 85.7% lower, RR 0.14, p = 0.24, treatment 0 of 60 (0.0%), control 3 of 60 (5.0%), NNT 20, relative risk is not 0 because of continuity correction due to zero events (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm).
risk of mechanical ventilation, 85.7% lower, RR 0.14, p = 0.24, treatment 0 of 60 (0.0%), control 3 of 60 (5.0%), NNT 20, relative risk is not 0 because of continuity correction due to zero events (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm).
risk of ICU admission, 66.7% lower, RR 0.33, p = 0.62, treatment 1 of 60 (1.7%), control 3 of 60 (5.0%), NNT 30.
hospitalization time, 10.0% lower, relative time 0.90, p = 0.40, treatment 45, control 45, moderate group.
hospitalization time, 16.7% lower, relative time 0.83, p = 0.20, treatment 15, control 15, severe group.
recovery time, 31.9% lower, relative time 0.68, p < 0.001, treatment 45, control 45, moderate group, fever.
recovery time, 36.1% lower, relative time 0.64, p < 0.001, treatment 45, control 45, moderate group, dyspnea.
recovery time, 4.3% lower, relative time 0.96, p = 0.74, treatment 15, control 15, severe group, fever.
recovery time, 4.8% higher, relative time 1.05, p = 0.10, treatment 15, control 15, severe group, dyspnea.
relative Ct increase, 44.4% better, RR 0.56, p = 0.003, treatment mean 9.98 (±6.39) n=44, control mean 5.55 (±6.91) n=43, moderate group.
