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 979

There is significant interest throughout the United States in performing a well-designed study to evaluate whether there is value in using Hydroxychloroquine or Chloroquine as a pre-exposure prophylaxis or post-exposure prophylaxis regimen for COVID-19 patients and at risk personnel. We have designed a prospective double blinded randomized controlled clinical trial to answer just this question. The study will consist of 4 arms: 1. A placebo control arm of 450 patients 2. A low dose prophylaxis arm of 450 patients treated with 200mg Hydroxychloroquine daily 3. A high dose prophylaxis arm of 450 patients treated with 400mg Hydroxychloroquine daily 4. A post-exposure arm of 100 patients treated with 400mg Hydroxychloroquine daily for 7 days.

This is a randomized, blinded phase 2 trial to assess the efficacy and safety of anti-SARS-CoV-2 convalescent plasma in hospitalized patients with a symptom onset between 3 and 7 days OR within 72 hours of hospitalization.

The primary endpoint of this study is to assess the effects of a single IV dose of mavrilimumab on the acute inflammatory response in patients with severe COVID-19 pneumonia

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.

The Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome COronaVirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) is a new and recognized infectious disease of the respiratory tract. Around 20% of those infected have severe pneumonia and currently there is no specific or effective therapy to treat this disease. Therapeutic options using malaria drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have shown promising results in vitro and in vivo test. But those efforts have not involved large, carefully-conducted controlled studies that would provide the global medical community the proof that these drugs work on a significant scale. In this way, the present study will evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the use of hydroxychloroquine combined with azithromycin compared to hydroxychloroquine monotherapy in patients hospitalized with pneumonia by SARS-CoV2 virus.

The purpose of this study is to test the effect of purified (acellular) amniotic fluid as a treatment for SARS CoV-2 (COVID19)-associated respiratory failure. Past use of human amniotic products (i.e., membrane and fluid) is FDA-approved for tissue injury and has been used to reduce inflammation and fibrosis in patients with a variety of medical conditions. The investigators hypothesize that using nebulized and/or intravenous purified (acellular) amniotic fluid will reduce both inflammation in patients hospitalized for in SARS CoV-2 (COVID19)-associated respiratory failure, potentially leading to a decrease in respiratory support.

The objective of this study is to provide remote mindfulness session(s) to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Triple blinded, phase III randomized controlled trial with parallel groups (200mg of hydroxychloroquine per day vs. placebo) aiming to prove hydroxychloroquine's security and efficacy as prophylaxis treatment for healthcare personnel exposed to COVID-19 patients.
This is phase II study to assess the efficacy of NestaCell® (mesenchymal stem cell) to treat severe COVID-19 pneumonia.
This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of efprezimod alfa in hospitalized adult participants who are diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and receiving oxygen support. The primary hypothesis of the study is clinical improvement in the experimental group versus the control group.
