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.

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.

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.
Investigators will recruit patients diagnosed with COVID-19 pneumonia between March 11th, 2020 and April 15th, 2020 in emergency, internal medicine and cardiology outpatient clinics, retrospectively and analyze their clinical and demographic features on admission in regard to their medications used for chronic diseases regularly.

This is a multicenter, multinational observational cohort study to document neurologic manifestations of COVID 19 among pediatric patients requiring hospital admission for confirmed or suspected COVID 19 (Coronavirus 19 disease, caused by infection with the SARS-CoV-2 (acute respiratory syndrome 2 ) virus. SARS-CoV2 shares significant structural and biological similarities with SARS-CoV including using the ACE-2 receptor as a docking site, a property that confers neurotropism. This study is sponsored and led by members of the Pediatric Neurocritical Care Research Group (PNCRG).

It has been shown in previous important outbreaks of infectious diseases that they have a huge impact on individuals and communities. The psychological effects of the illness itself and the traumatic experiences of loved ones are experienced by individuals and complete health systems. Added to this, the social ecosystem and family finances are also severely affected. After several months of the outbreak start and several weeks of quarantine and self-isolation, the emotional burden on the community has increased. Added to this, many of the confirmed cases are healthcare workers. In addition to the risk of infection, these front-line staff are exposed to high levels of stress and anxiety. This gets worse as the pressure on the health system increases, forcing them to deal with significant ethical issues. To respond to all these issues, the research group led by Dr. Cris Vilaplana at the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP), have launched a questionnaire to ask the public, including health professionals, how are they being affected by the pandemic, not only in relation to their health but in terms of their emotional wellbeing and their family finances. The project is an initiative of the SMA-TB consortium (IGTP and Anaxomics) to fight against COVID-19. The Fundació Lluita contra la SIDA is also collaborating in the project. The survey is based on questions related to depression, anxiety, stress, and post-traumatic stress disorder, which have already been used in other epidemic outbreaks and in disaster situations, but it also includes questions adapted to the current situation. The survey (now available in 4 languages) has been designed to be shared using a snowball strategy, making possible for everybody to participate and collaborate. The results obtained will initially help us to better understand the impact of the outbreak of COVID-19 on the general wellbeing of the population and health workers so that we can go on to develop strategies in coordination those in charge of administrations in order to adapt policies to people's real needs. The results of the study will be published in a scientific article and will be publicly available.

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) global pandemic caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has caused considerable morbidity and mortality in over 170 countries. Increasing age and burden of cardiovascular comorbidities are associated with a worse prognosis among patients with COVID-19. In addition, serologic markers of more severe disease including coagulation abnormalities and thrombocytopenia, are not uncommon among patients hospitalized with severe COVID-19 infection and are more common in patients who died in-hospital. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grow, there is a pressing need to identify safe, effective, and widely available therapies that can be scaled and rapidly incorporated into clinical practice. Understanding the putative mechanism of increased mortality risk associated with abnormal coagulation function and cardiac injury is critical to guide studies of promising therapeutic interventions. Published and anecdotal reports indicate that endothelial dysfunction and thrombosis are common in critically ill patients with COVID-19, including reports of diffuse microvascular thrombosis in the lungs, heart, liver, and kidneys. Patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and CVD risk factors are known to have endothelial dysfunction and a heightened risk of thrombosis. A recent study of COVID-19 inpatients from Wuhan, China observed that an elevated D-dimer level greater than 1 ug/mL was associated with an 18 times higher risk of in-hospital death, underscoring the importance of increased coagulation activity as a potential modifiable risk marker that may drive end-organ injury. Given the established link between endothelial dysfunction and thrombosis in patients with cardiovascular disease, and the association between coagulopathy and adverse outcomes in patients with sepsis, the association between increased coagulation activity, end-organ injury, and mortality risk may represent a modifiable risk factor among COVID-19 patients with critical illness. Therefore, we propose to conduct a randomized, open-label trial of therapeutic anticoagulation in COVID-19 patients with an elevated D-dimer to evaluate the efficacy and safety.
Stress and anxiety can have an adverse impact on health, and the experience of many around the 2020 outbreak of COVID-19 is affecting health and well-being. Individuals with chronic disease such as multiple sclerosis may be particularly vulnerable in some ways, but also particularly resilient in others. This study evaluates the effects of belonging to online support groups that meet weekly for 12 weeks to address the stress and anxiety felt by individuals with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). This study will also measure and explore the effects of online support groups.
The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is causing a global pandemic with high morbidity and mortality among adults and mainly the elderly. Children seem to be little or not affected by this infection. It is estimated that children could be asymptomatic or pauci-symptomatic carriers and thus be vectors of the disease. This is why measures to close schools and confine populations have been decreed in a large number of countries, including France. However, there are only a few data on the prevalence of COVID19 disease in children. The deconfinement strategy depends on data on the prevalence of the disease, especially in children. Investigators propose to evaluate the incidence of Covid-19 in preschool and elementary schools children in the city of Nice (South of France) during the pandemic period using a local prospective study of 914 children

. Coronavirus (SARS-CoV2) appeared first in China late 2019 and caused an acute respiratory disease referred to as Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). SARS-CoV2 is considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) as pandemic and affected nations worldwide, leading to close borders and major economical struggle. The ongoing viral threat due to the lack of effective therapies and vaccination might prolonged this economical challenge and many businesses will face huge financial constraints leading to laying off labors, an increase in the unemployment rate, and major companies' bankruptcies. However, returning to normal business operations should be done with a safety focus and not be at the cost of global health and wellbeing. Immunity against COVID-19 is going to be a major determinant for a future safe work environment and will reduce the viral infection risk. Therefore, PI is suggesting that if an employee has antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 confirmed by serological testing, he or she could go back to work safely with taking the necessary precautions.
