LAHORE:

Interim results of the VICCTORI trial were released by the University of Health Sciences (UHS) Lahore Vice Chancellor and Pakistan Society of Internal Medicine President Dr Javed Akram at the first UHS international conference on Covid-19. The results were shown in the presence of Punjab Governor Chaudry Muhammad Sarwar, Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jilani (R), and DRAP CEO Asim Rauf. VICCTORI trial, which was initiated in June 2020 by UHS and Scotmann Pharmaceuticals, had shown promising improvement in the Covid-19 patients after vitamin D therapy was added as an adjunct to the conventional Covid-19 therapy. Breaking the results to the media, the UHS VC said, “We have conclusively shown through our trial that vitamin D not only protects you from the coronavirus but also prevents further progression of the disease. Vitamin D is an inexpensive thing that people should be aware of.”
