    Comparing efficacy of interferon beta 1a nasal spray and placebo for Time to Clinical Recovery of Covid-19 (Fever normalization and oxygen saturation sustained for at least 72 hours)
    Evaluation of 50% reduction of viral load or negative results of virus before Day 7
    مقایسه اثربخشی اسپری بینی اینترفرون بتا 1آ و داروی پلاسبو برای بهبود کلینیکال علایم بیماری کووید-19(نرمال شدن تب و غلظت اشباع اکسیژن به مدت 72 ساعت)
    بررسی کاهش 50 درصدی میزان لود ویروس و یا منفی شدن آن تا قبل روز 7 درمان
    This is a randomized double blind study at Baqiyatallal Hospital at mild to moderate cases of covid-19. Nasal spray of interferon beta 1a will be prepared by sponsor of the study (Cinnagen), the package of the test and placebo drug will have totally equal shape and size.
