Oxford University and the COVID Symptom Study app are joining forces to widen access to the PRINCIPLE trial of potential treatments for COVID-19.

The COVID Symptom Study App was developed and is managed by health technology company ZOE, with the research using data from the app being undertaken by academics at King's College London. The app has now been downloaded by over 3.5 million people in the UK and has recruited over 800,000 citizen scientists to its Vaccine and Trial Registry.

The registry was launched on 9 July and aims to raise awareness and rapidly recruit members of the public to the growing number of national and community-based clinical trials for COVID-19 in the UK.

Those users who have already signed up to the COVID Symptom Study Vaccine and Trial registry and test positive for COVID-19, or show signs of symptomatic COVID in the app, will be contacted and given the opportunity to join Oxford University’s PRINCIPLE and STOIC trials.
