UH Researchers Are Looking For COVID-19 Patients To Test Heart, Lung Drug

The University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine (UH-JABSOM) are looking for newly diagnosed COVID-19 patients to test a drug that relieves heart and lung pain.

The research of the Telmisartan drug is spearheaded by Cecilia Shikuma, MD, Lead Researcher and Cris Milne, ARPN, MPH.

The research requires patients to visit UH-JABSOM once for a blood draw and are given Telmisartan or a placebo to take for four weeks.

Dr. Shikuma and Milne assure the safety of each patient who participates.
