Around the world, researchers are working extremely hard to develop new treatments and interventions for COVID-19 with new clinical trials opening nearly every day. This directory provides you with information, including enrollment detail, about these trials. In some cases, researchers are able to offer expanded access (sometimes called compassionate use) to an investigational drug when a patient cannot participate in a clinical trial.
The information provided here is drawn from ClinicalTrials.gov. If you do not find a satisfactory expanded access program here, please search in our COVID Company Directory. Some companies consider expanded access requests for single patients, even if they do not show an active expanded access listing in this database. Please contact the company directly to explore the possibility of expanded access.
To learn how to apply for expanded access, please visit our Guides designed to walk healthcare providers, patients and/or caregivers through the process of applying for expanded access. Please note that given the situation with COVID-19 and the need to move as fast as possible, many physicians are requesting expanded access for emergency use. In these cases, FDA will authorize treatment by telephone and treatment can start immediately. For more details, consult FDA guidance. Emergency IND is the common route that patients are receiving convalescent plasma.
To search this directory, simply type a drug name, condition, company name, location, or other term of your choice into the search bar and click SEARCH. For broadest results, type the terms without quotation marks; to narrow your search to an exact match, put your terms in quotation marks (e.g., “acute respiratory distress syndrome” or “ARDS”). You may opt to further streamline your search by using the Status of the study and Intervention Type options. Simply click one or more of those boxes to refine your search.Displaying 10 of 1633

In this study, patients who have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 by PCR testing without severe disease will be randomized on a 2:1 basis to receive a single injection of NT-I7 or placebo. All participants will receive best supportive care in addition to study treatment. The investigators hypothesize that NT-I7 can increase absolute lymphocyte count (ALC), thus potentially improve immune response to enhance viral clearance, thereby reducing duration of symptoms, minimizing contagiousness and preventing progression of severity.
This trial is designed to determine if the inflammation modulating effect of vagus nerve stimulation can improve pulmonary function and limit progression to ARDS in hospitalized COVID-19 hospitalized patients.

A novel betacoronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, is spreading rapidly throughout the world. A large epidemic in South Africa may overwhelm available hospital capacity and healthcare resources which would be worsened by absenteeism of healthcare workers and other frontline staff (HCW). Strategies to prevent morbidity and mortality of HCW are desperately needed to safeguard continuous patient care. Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is a vaccine against tuberculosis (TB), with protective non-specific effects against other respiratory tract infections in in vitro and in vivo studies, with reported morbidity and mortality reductions as high as 70%. We hypothesize that a BCG vaccination may reduce the morbidity and mortality of healthcare workers during the COVID-19 outbreak in South Africa.

Main goal: To generate information on the efficacy and safety of Dialyzable Leukocyte Extract (DLE) as an aid in the treatment of patients with acute respiratory infection (suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19). Primary goal: To generate information on the efficacy of DLE as an aid in symptomatic treatment, by reducing the signs and symptoms of acute respiratory infection (suspected/confirmed cases of COVID-19). Secondary goals: 1. To evaluate clinical deterioration and respiratory alarm data. 2. To evaluate the duration of the clinical picture. 3. To explore cytokine changes associated with the therapeutic effect induced by DLE. 4. To obtain data on the safety of DLE as an aid in the symptomatic treatment of acute respiratory infection (suspected/confirmed cases of COVID-19). 5. To generate information to validate the contingency scale to assess the severity of acute respiratory disease (suspected/confirmed cases of COVID-19). Justification The systemic inflammatory response has been recognized as being responsible for COVID-19 complications. Immunomodulation strategies to control it are currently being considered, including the use of systemic steroids to down-regulate the systemic inflammatory response, the use of human immunoglobulin and even chloroquine given its anti-inflammatory and antiviral qualities; however, none of these treatments has been sufficiently studied or has shown any significant change in the clinical course of infected patients. Due to the importance of the COVID-19 pandemic and in the absence of specific treatment, it is important to implement new treatments that allow modulating the immune response, and one strategy may be the addition of DLE to symptomatic and supportive treatment. Hypotheses by goals. 1. The addition of DLE to the symptomatic treatment could decrease the severity of the clinical outcome (signs and symptoms) in individuals with an acute respiratory infection (cases suspected/confirmed by COVID-19). 2. The addition of DLE to the symptomatic treatment could decrease the clinical deterioration due to the acute respiratory infectious process (suspected/confirmed cases of COVID-19). 3. The addition of DLE to the symptomatic treatment could decrease the duration of the clinical outcome (suspected/confirmed cases of COVID-19).

CON-VINCE (COvid-19 National survey for assessing VIral spread by Non-affected CarriErs) is a national, monocentric, and longitudinal study aiming to evaluate the spread dynamics of the COVID-19 disease within the Luxembourgish population. Participants who are clinically asymptomatic or present with only mild symptoms will be followed up longitudinally, regularly tested for SARS-CoV-2 by RT-PCR, antibody status, and subjected to an epidemiological, clinical and biological phenotyping to better understand the nature, dynamics of infectivity and spread of the virus in the population. CON-VINCE will also track the psychological and socio-economic impact of long-term containment measures on the general population.
According to the data of February 2020, in Turkey with a population of 83.9 million, internet and social media usage percentage to population are 74% and 64% respectively. Although previous researches have investigated the effect of social media on different medical situations, there is no study focused role of social media on patients' behavior and information source during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the present study, it is aimed to reveal the impact of social media on patients' attitudes and information sources during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hypothesis: low-dose chest computed tomography, has the same accuracy for the diagnosis of pneumonia compared to the routine protocol. In total, 230 patients are planned to be enrolled in the study. Each patient will have 2 studies (routine chest CT and low-dose chest CT) sequentially during one visit to the computed tomography room.
The study of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) detected in exhaled air is an innovative research area for respiratory diseases. This analysis can be done by the technique of electronic nose, simpler and faster, which provides an idea of the general profile of the VOCs without identifying them. The VOCs in exhaled air in patients hospitalized for COVID-19 infection are analysed in this study, using electronic noses.

This multicenter before-after study aimed to determine the impact of infection related to SARS-CoV-2 on the incidence of ICU-acquired multidrug resistant (MDR) bacteria.

This phase I/IIa trial studies the side effects of rintatolimod and interferon (IFN) alpha-2b in treating cancer patients with mild or moderate COVID-19 infection. Interferon alpha is a protein important for defense against viruses. It activates immune responses that help to clear viral infection. Rintatolimod is double stranded ribonucleic acid (RNA) designed to mimic viral infection by stimulating immune pathways that are normally activated during viral infection. Giving rintatolimod and interferon alpha-2b may activate the immune system to limit the replication and spread of the virus.
