Clevira Tablet for Covid-19: Clinical Research & Result
A clinical trial was conducted on 100 people in May-June last year and the results were “promising”. The selected 100 participants were randomized into two groups with 50 patients each. During the 30 day-trial conducted at Government Medical College Omandurar Government Estate in Chennai after getting prior approval from the Tamil Nadu government.
The control group comprised patients diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infection and received standard care treatment as per hospital regulations as well as the WHO/Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) guidelines. The test group patients also received Clevira tablets twice daily orally after food for 14 days.
“It was found that Clevira significantly reduced the time taken for clinical recovery, which was noted in terms of reduction in pyrexia or body pain, normalization of the respiratory rate (less than 24/minute) and improvement in oxygen saturation level (more than 94 per cent),” the company said.
Besides, 86 per cent of patients tested negative for the infection on (day 5) and 100 per cent of patients turned out to be Covid-19 RT-PCR test negative on (day 10) after consuming Clevira tablets. The clinical trial results were submitted to the Tamil Nadu government, ICMR and the Ministry of AYUSH in 2020.
“After rigorous scrutiny and deliberations, the drug got approval to be used as a supporting measure for treating mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms by the Ministry of AYUSH regulators, a first-of-its-kind approval in India through various stages of scrutiny at the Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences (CCRAS) and the Interdisciplinary Technical Review Committee (ITRC),” the company said.

Clevira is proven effective as an analgesic, antipyretic and reversal of thrombocytopenia. The product is available across India and is priced at Rs.11/- per tablet. (And ₹110/strip)
