The purpose of the study will be to assess the efficacy and safety of XIGO administered orally, three times a day, compared with placebo in patients with the common cold.
The common cold is one of the most frequent human illnesses and has been shown to result in significant morbidity and economic loss. At the present time no truly effective therapy is available. Therapeutic interventions with compounds such as zinc have been found to be helpful however well reported side-effects have prevented its extensive use.
Based on several years of anecdotal clinical evidence which has shown that XIGO is effective in alleviating the symptoms of the common cold-the findings of which are supported by competent and reliable evidence from in vivo and in vitro and clinical trials studies on each of the individual active ingredients of the formulation, it has been proposed that XIGO, when administered orally, has a direct stimulatory effect on multiple components of the immune system. It is proposed that this stimulation increases both the immune cell population as well as its functionality and this will be observed in cells and molecules from both the innate and adaptive responses.
