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.

This phase II expanded access trial will study how well tocilizumab works in reducing the serious symptoms including pneumonitis (severe acute respiratory distress) in patients with cancer and COVID-19. COVID-19 is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. COVID-19 can be associated with an inflammatory response by the immune system which may also cause symptoms of COVID-19 to worsen. This inflammation may be called "cytokine storm," which can cause widespread problems in the body. Tocilizumab is a medicine designed to block the action of a protein called interleukin-6 (IL-6) that is involved with the immune system and is known to be a key factor for problems with excessive inflammation. Tocilizumab is effective in treating "cytokine storm" from a type of cancer immunotherapy and may be effective in reducing the inflammatory response and "cytokine storm" seen in severe COVID-19 disease. Treating the inflammation may help to reduce symptoms, improve the ability to breathe without a breathing machine (ventilator), and prevent patients from having more complications.

During this pandemic period, the goal of the health care system is to optimize the use of intensive care services for patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, given the frequency of complications that can lead to high mortality. When patients with suspected or confirmed Covid-19 are admitted to hospital, whether or not they are symptomatic, there is currently no method to predict who will progress to complications requiring the use of intensive measures in 24-48 hours.

No optimal antiviral intervention has been yet validated to treat COVID-19 disease. Comorbidities, such as older age, obesity, diabetes, history of cardiovascular diseases are associated with poor prognosis. This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of two experimental antiviral treatments, compared to standard of care (SOC), to prevent clinical worsening, hospitalization or death at day 14 in adults with documented SARS-CoV-2 infection, asymptomatic or with symptoms lasting less than 8 days, and associated comorbidities without any severity criteria of the disease at inclusion. Participants will be randomized to receive SOC alone or SOC + hydroxychloroquine 200 mg three times a day during 10 days or SOC + association of niclosamide 2 g at J1 then 500 mg two times a day with diltiazem 60 mg three times a day during 10 days. Efficacy and tolerance of each treatments will be compared across the three treatment groups during the 28 days of follow-up.

This is a double-blinded, two-arm, randomized, placebo controlled study comparing the virological efficacy of add-on sirolimus with standard care to placebo and standard care. Virological efficacy is defined as the change from baseline to day 7 in SARS-CoV-2 viral burden measured by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction.

Recent data have shown that covid19 is disproportionately infecting and killing African Americans and Latinx people in the United States. The aim of the study is to determine which messages are most effective at increasing knowledge and changing behaviors that can protect individuals and their communities from the virus. To accomplish this aim, we plan to recruit approximately 20,000 Hispanic and African-American individuals and randomly assign them to videos that vary either the sender or the framing of the message, while providing the relevant public health information.

Patient are being asked to provide respiratory and blood samples for a clinical research study because the patients have a virus called the novel coronavirus, or SARS-CoV-2, that causes the disease known as Covid-19. Investigators do not know a lot about this virus, including all the ways it travels from person to person. Investigators also do not know if a person will get sick or not from the virus after being in close contact with someone who has the virus. Because of this, investigators are performing research on the virus found in respiratory secretions to get more information on how investigators can best detect and treat this new virus in the future. Primary Objective - To determine the clinical characteristics and outcomes of Covid-19 in children. - To characterize the clinical risk factors of Covid-19 in children.. Secondary Objectives - To characterize the immunological risk factors and serologic response to SARS-CoV-2 infection in children.- To evaluate the duration of viral shedding in children. - To evaluate the duration of SARS-CoV-2 viral shedding in children. Exploratory Objective

SARS-CoV-2 induces over-production of inflammatory cytokines, and especially interleukin-6 (IL-6). The apparently strong association between blood levels of inflammaory cytokines and SARS-CoV-2 disease severity has led clinicians to evaluate the administration of steroids or anti-IL-6 antagonists in severely ill patients. As of this day, biomarkers capable of predicting clinical disease progression in Covid-19 patients with mild-to-moderate symptoms have not yet been formally identified. Identifying such markers and evaluating their predictive value may be exploited to guide patient care management, and as such forms the core objective of this proposal. Because of strong inter-individual variations in the ability of innate immune cells to produce cytokines, the hypothesis the investigators formulate and intend to test is that innate IL-6 responsiveness varies between recently infected Covid-19 patients and could predict disease outcome. To test this hypothesis, the investigators propose to follow recently infected chronic haemodialysis patients with moderate Covid-19 symptoms. These patients stand a higher risk to progress to severe disease. The investigators plan to collect a blood sample in these patients using a system whereby ex vivo cytokine production is initiated in the very same blood collection tube without prior separation and centrifugation, thus reducing labour and operator bias. After incubation with or without known innate immune stimuli, the cell-free phase from each collection-culture tube will be assayed for IL-6 content. Associations between IL-6 content and disease outcome (encephalopathy, transfer to acute care or death) will be determined in 115 Covid-19 chronic haemodialysis patients with moderate symptoms followed in 9 centers.

The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic is responsible for more than 180,000 deaths worldwide and 20,000 deaths in France. To date, no treatment or vaccine has been successful. Povidone-iodine is an antiseptic suitable for use on the skin and mucosa with potent virucidal activity, particularly against coronaviruses. It is marketed for oro-nasopharyngeal decolonization. 24 patients with positive nasopharyngeal SARS-CoV-2 carriage will be randomized (1:1) in an experimental group (benefiting from povidone iodine decolonization) or a control group. Patients in the experimental group will be asked to gargle with a 1% povidone-iodine solution, spray their nose with the same antiseptic solution, and finally applied 10% povidone-iodine cream in each nostril, all four times a day for five days. Patients will be followed for 7 days to evaluate the efficacy and safety of povidone iodine decolonization.
