The Zurich OVID trial

The OVID trial was initiated in 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic, with the aim to demonstrate superiority of enoxaparin as compared to standard of care for primary thromboprophylaxis in ambulatory patients with coronavirus disease. The trial protocol can be found here

The trial was stopped early for futility, and the results of the trial were published in Lancet Hematology here.
