Studies   Meta Analysis   Hide extended summaries

3,955 patient selenium prophylaxis study: 53% lower hospitalization (p=0.02) and 15% fewer symptomatic cases (p=0.04).
Analysis of nutrient intake and COVID-19 outcomes for 3,996 people in Iran, showing lower risk of COVID-19 hospitalization with sufficient vitamin A, vitamin C, and selenium intake, with statistical significance for vitamin A and selenium.

122 patient selenium late treatment RCT: 35% lower mortality (p=0.68), 81% lower need for oxygen therapy, and 22% improved recovery.
Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 122 moderate hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Iran, evaluating the addition of BCc1 iron chelator and Hep-S selenium nanomedicines to standard treatment. The nanomedicine group showed a significant 77% reduction in IL-6 levels by day 28 compared to an 18% increase in the placebo group, along with improvements in TNF-alpha and clinical scores for cough, fatigue, and oxygen need, without statistical significance.

15,227 patient selenium prophylaxis study: 80% fewer cases (p=0.11).
Prospective survey-based study with 15,227 people in the UK, showing lower risk of COVID-19 cases with vitamin A, vitamin D, zinc, selenium, probiotics, and inhaled corticosteroids; and higher risk with metformin and vitamin C. Statistical significance was not reached for any of these. Except for vitamin D, the results for treatments we follow were only adjusted for age, sex, duration of participation, and test frequency. NCT04330599. COVIDENCE UK.
