From the Regulatory Affairs Professional Society (RAPS): FDA’s CURE ID app gets a COVID-19 refresh
An online case reporting platform has been optimized for COVID-19 and will be the springboard for a new public-private drug repurposing collaboration.
The CURE ID online platform was developed to allow clinicians to report off-label uses of drugs to treat infectious diseases, with the goal of generating hypotheses for further study of difficult-to-treat infectious diseases. The internet repository of these cases can also be accessed by clinicians and other users, with the option to view aggregated datasets as well as the individual case reports. The platform can be used via a computer browser or Apple and Android-based smartphone apps. Full article here.
