Lightship is looking for unvaccinated people who have recently tested positive for COVID-19, to take part in a groundbreaking study.
Qualified participants may receive:

Millions of people have been impacted by the pandemic, and while many hope the worst is over, there are still people testing positive for COVID-19 every day. While vaccines have been developed, the work is not over and it is important to continue advancements for treatment and prevention, especially for those who are at high risk and more likely to suffer serious symptoms. Right now, a virtual research study is enrolling patients to test an oral study medication that may help reduce the symptoms and severity of COVID-19. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed within the past 5 days, are experiencing symptoms, and have an underlying health condition, you may be a good candidate for this study.

  • Male or Female
  • Age 18 or older
  • Diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 5 days, and experiencing symptoms
  • Have not received a COVID-19 vaccine
  • Have an underlying health condition like heart disease, diabetes, overweigh, kidney disease or immunosuppressant disease
