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 97

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.

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 protocol proposes to use IC14, a recombinant chimeric monoclonal antibody (mAb) recognizing human CD14, to block CD14-mediated cellular activation in patients early in the development of ARDS. The binding of IC14 to human CD14 prevents CD14 from participating in the recognition of PAMPs and DAMPs due to SARS-CoV-2 infection. The putative mechanism of action of IC14 in ARDS is blockade of PAMP and DAMP interactions with CD14, thus attenuating the inflammatory cascade that leads to increased endothelial and epithelial permeability and injury resulting in alveolar injury and fluid accumulation characteristic of ARDS. IC14 is a chimeric monoclonal antibody that binds to CD14 with high affinity and inhibits signaling via membrane and soluble CD14. Blocking CD14 with IC14 treatment in normal volunteers strongly inhibits systemic inflammation in response to bacterial endotoxin (LPS). University of Washington conducted a small NIH-funded pilot trial of IC14 treatment in 13 patients with ARDS, which suggested that IC14 treatment reduced alveolar inflammation and decreased BAL cytokines. IC14 was also the subject of IND 105803 for a phase 2 study of ARDS from all causes which we propose to revise for the COVID-19 indication. A dosing regimen for IC14 with favorable pharmacokinetics supporting once daily intravenous dosing has been defined, making this an acceptable treatment for hospitalized patients. Two pharmacodynamic biomarkers can be used that are related to CD14, measurements of sCD14 (serum at baseline; urine at baseline and follow up) as well as a CD14 fragment (sCD14-ST; presepsin). A CD14 target engagement assay is available. Therefore, because of the central role of CD14 in the amplification of lung inflammatory responses leading to severe lung injury and the safety record of IC14 in humans, we propose to have an open-label protocol to test the safety and potential efficacy of IC14 treatment in preventing the progression of severe respiratory disease in patients hospitalized with COVID-19.
This protocol provides access to eculizumab treatment for participants with severe COVID-19.

I. Study Design: This is a single-arm feasibility study to assess the safety and efficacy of anti-SARS-CoV-2 convalescent plasma (CP) in 1. intubated, mechanically ventilated patients with confirmed COVID-19 pneumonia by chest X-ray or chest CT. 2. hospitalized patients with acute respiratory symptoms between 3 and 7 days after the onset of symptoms, with COVID-19. II. Study Population: 1. Population 1: Mechanically ventilated intubated COVID-19 patients aged 18 years or older. 2. Population 2: Hospitalized COVID-19 patients aged ≥18 years of age with respiratory symptoms within 3 to 7 days from the beginning of illness. III. Study Agent: SARS-CoV-2 convalescent plasma (1-2 units; ~200-400 mL at neutralization antibody titer >1:160.

Chronic fatigue is the most common and debilitating symptom in intensive care unit (ICU) survivors. Indeed, it has been widely reported that patients who stayed in ICU for prolonged periods report a feeling of tiredness for months to years after ICU discharge. This symptom seems particularly pronounced in Covid-19 patients and may affect their quality of life by decreasing their capacity to perform simple tasks of daily life. The aim of the present project is to determine whether deteriorated neuromuscular function (i.e. increased fatigability) is involved in the feeling of fatigue of Covid-19 patients. Because the causes of this feeling are multi-dimensional, a large battery of tests will allow us to better understand the origin of chronic fatigue. A better knowledge of chronic fatigue etiology and its recovery will allow to optimize rehabilitation treatments to shorten the persistence of chronic fatigue and in fine improve life quality.

Mental health disorders are common during pregnancy and the postnatal period, and can have serious adverse effects on the well-being of woman and child. Every tenth woman has depressive symptoms and 5% suffer major depression during pregnancy. The consequences for global mental health due to the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, are likely to be significant and may have long-term impact on the global burden of disease. Pregnant women may be particularly vulnerable due to partial immune suppression. Besides physical vulnerability, the women could be at increased risk of mental health problems, such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), due to social distancing leading to less support from the family and friends, and in some cases, partners not being allowed to be present during prenatal visits, labor and delivery. Furthermore, many pregnant women may feel insecure and worried about the effect of COVID-19 on their unborn child, if the women get infected during pregnancy. Today, young urban women are used to utilizing internet services frequently and efficiently. Therefore, providing mental health support to pregnant women via web-based support may be effective in ameliorating their anxiety/depression and reduce the risk of serious mental health disorders leading to improved maternal and perinatal outcomes.
