Arms and Interventions

ArmIntervention/Treatment
Experimental: Efficacy of IV Ribavirin

The proposed clinical dose is based on drug dosage used in the HFRS clinical trial in China that demonstrated efficacy: Loading dose, 33 mg/kg (maximum dose: 2.64 g), followed by a dose of 16 mg/kg (maximum dose: 1.28 g) every 6 hours for the first 4 days (15 doses), and 8 mg/kg (maximum dose: 0.64 g) every 8 hours for the subsequent 3 days (9 doses).

Drug: Virazole
Virazole (Ribavirin), USP Injection 0.1 g/mL in a phosphate buffer solution. Each vial contains 1.2 g of Ribavirin in 12 mL

  • Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Reduction in Mortality with IV Ribavirin at 10days [10 Days (+/-1)]

    2. Reduction in Mortality with IV Ribavirin at 14days [14 Days (+/-2)]

      Measuring the treatment effectiveness of the injected IV Ribavirin by the reduction of mortality and reported serious adverse events at the 14 days interval.

    3. Reduction in Mortality with IV Ribavirin at 28-60days [28-60 Days]

      Measuring the treatment effectiveness of the injected IV Ribavirin by the reduction of mortality and reported serious adverse events at the 28-60 days interval.

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    1. Reported Adverse Events [0-60 days]

    • Agrees to report any adverse events (AEs) for the duration of the patient's treatment protocol participation.

    • Agrees to follow-up visits and to donate blood and urine specimens at Day 10, Day 14, and once between Days 28 and 60 after the first dose of IV ribavirin and to all follow-up visits for anemia or other medical conditions as required by the attending physician.

    • Has a hemoglobin of 10 g/dL or higher before starting IV ribavirin.

    • Women who are breastfeeding agree to discontinue breastfeeding during treatment with IV ribavirin and during the 7-month post-treatment period.

    • Woman of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test within 24 hours before starting treatment and agrees not to become pregnant during treatment and for 7 months after receiving IV ribavirin. Treatment will be a maximum of 25 doses given over a 1 week time period. At least 2 reliable forms of effective contraception, including 1 barrier method, must be utilized during treatment and during the 7 months post treatment period.(See Section 12.1.6 Pregnancy)

    • Male subjects agree not to have intercourse with pregnant women during treatment and for 7 months after receiving IV ribavirin, and take precautions to avoid producing pregnancies in female partners during and for 7 months after receiving ribavirin. Treatment will be a maximum of 25 doses given over a 1 week time period. At least 2 reliable forms of effective contraception, including 1 barrier method, must be utilized during the treatment and during the 7 month post-treatment period (See Section 12.1.6 Pregnancy). Their female partner should use a highly effective contraceptive method (see Section 12.1.6). They agree to use a male condom plus an additional method with a failure rate of < 1% per year).

    Exclusion Criteria:
    Individual will not be enrolled in the protocol if they meet any of the following criteria:
    • Has a known intolerance to ribavirin.

    • Is irreversibly ill on presentation, as defined by presence of profound shock, which does not respond to supportive therapy within 3 hours after admission.

    • Has a positive pregnancy test.

    • Has an estimated creatinine clearance < 20 mL/minute

    • Has a history of hemoglobinopathies (ie, sickle-cell anemia or thalassemia major).

    • Has a history of autoimmune hepatitis.

    • Has a hemoglobin less than 10 g/dL that cannot be corrected to ≥ 10 g/dL before initiation of IV ribavirin.

Class II ASHD or greater includes angina that occurs at rest, with daily activities, and/or with slightly more prolonged or with slightly more vigorous activity than usual. Class II CHF or greater includes CHF resulting in mild symptoms with ordinary physical activity, or marked or severe limitations of activity [See Appendix B for New York Heart Association Functional Classification of Angina and CHF].

    • Is currently being treated with didanosine (ddI) or azathioprine. DdI and azathioprine must be discontinued before starting IV ribavirin
