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.

The objective of this study is to provide remote mindfulness session(s) to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The investigators plan to conduct a cross-sectional survey to examine how social media use during COVID-19 relates to: (1) information management, (2) assessment of the situation, and (3) affect.

A randomized controlled trial in which health care workers will be randomized to either medical masks or N95 respirators when providing care to patients with COVID-19.
This prospective randomized single Center study investigates to what extent the physical elimination of the inflammatory mediators using the CytoSorb adsorber reduces the morbidity of severely and critically ill patients with Covid-19.

INTRODUCTION In critical situations, such as the current COVID 19 pandemic, themes of fear, uncertainty and stigmatization are common and constitute barriers to appropriate medical and mental health interventions. These challenges, when faced by those who live with a chronic disease, such as diabetes mellitus (DM), can negatively influence quality of life and adherence to treatment, compromising the control of the disease. OBJECTIVES The present study aims to investigate the effectiveness of a tele-intervention during the COVID-19 pandemic in improving glycemic control, lipid profile, blood pressure levels and parameters of medication adherence, mental well-being and sleep quality in patients with type 1 DM and type 2 DM. METHODS A randomized clinical trial will be carried out with patients with a previous diagnosis of type 1 DM and type 2 DM, who are registered at the Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre (HCPA). Inclusion criteria will be age greater than or equal to 18 years, collection of HbA1c in the HCPA laboratory in January, February or March 2020 and availability to receive weekly phone calls. Patients will be randomized, stratified by type of diabetes, in two groups: G1: participants will receive a tele-intervention by a case manager weekly to discuss topics related to diabetes management and mental well-being during the social distancing period ; G2: participants will receive the usual care. The primary outcome assessed will be the variation in HbA1c levels comparatively between groups, with or without a tele-guided strategy, after four months of social distancing (or as long as the recommendation of social distancing measures remains). Secondary outcomes will include experiencing confirmation of COVID-19 infection, variation in lipid profile, blood pressure levels and variation in parameters of emotional distress related to diabetes, eating disorders, medication adherence, symptoms minor psychiatric disorders and altered sleep patterns, which will be evaluated with specific and validated scales. According to the sample calculation, 150 patients will be included in the study (92 with type 2 DM and 58 with type 1 DM). Analysis by intention to treat will be performed separately for patients with type 1 DM and with type 2 DM. SCHEDULE The proposed experiment will start immediately after approval of this project by the research ethics committee. The duration of the proposed intervention is 4 months (or as long as the recommendation of social distancing measures remains. This means that the study may be completed before or after that period, based on national recommendations for social distancing in Brazil), with a data analysis plan and publication of the results until September 2020.
In December 2019, new coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) broke out in Wuhan (Hubei, China), and it spread rapidly from one city to the whole country in just 30 days, and then worldwide cases began to appear. All the countries of the world take some precautions to prevent the spread of this epidemic disease, which WHO declared as "pandemic". Apart from compulsory situations, non-home and social isolation are the primary measures. However, not leaving the house and social isolation brings with it the restriction of physical activity. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in order to obtain health benefits, adult individuals between the ages of 18-64 should perform at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week (30 minutes a day for 5 days a week) or intensive physical activity for at least 75 minutes a week. For additional health benefits, adults should increase their moderate-intensity physical activities to at least 300 minutes a week or equivalent. Physical activity; It is directly related to the prevention of chronic diseases, increasing fitness, strengthening the muscles and increasing the quality of life. It is reported that one of the ten main risk factors in terms of mortality in the world is insufficient physical activity. The effects of social isolation are related to physical inactivity, smoking and the possibility of having both health risk behaviors together. Practical and innovative interventions are needed to reduce physical performance and decrease in muscle mass, strength and physical performance in the aging population. Considering today's conditions and current COVID-19 Pandemic, technology-supported exercise programs are effective in increasing the motivation for physical activity. The purpose of this study; In order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, social isolation, which is one of the measures taken in our country, is to evaluate the physical activity level of adults and to investigate the effectiveness of home exercises. It is aimed to use a model based on the video supported by a home-based exercise program.

This study will investigate the impact of the Double-Trunk Mask (DTM) on the reduction of oxygen titration in patients with severe hypoxemia.
This current proposal evaluates the Longitudinal Energy Expenditure and Metabolic Effects in Patients with COVID-19 (LEEP-COVID) to understand, guide and optimize our metabolic and nutritional care of these high risk patients. As no data exist for the metabolic effects of COVID-19 patients, this data is urgently needed and essential to assist in the care of COVID-19 patients worldwide. We are uniquely positioned at Duke to perform this research, as we are the only US center with 2 of the FDA-approved devices in existence currently capable of collecting this vital data to guide the care of COVID-19 patients worldwide.

The study objective is to investigate the diagnostic value and consistency of chest CT as compared with comparison to RT-PCR assay in COVID-19 in patients which were stratified for hospital admission.
Viruxal Oral and Nasal Spray is a Class I CE marked medical device manufactured by Kerecis hf (the "Device"). A double blind clinical trial will be conducted to evaluate the Device against placebo in COVID-19 positive, symptomatic patients in Iceland. Immediate access to COVID-19 patients is available through a well-organized COVID-19 outpatient follow-up clinic. Up to 128 patients with mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 will be recruited (so called "higher end of the low risk group"). These patients will be positive for COVID-19, be symptomatic with upper respiratory symptoms, but without involvement of the entire respiratory system. The patients will be randomized to receive treatment with the Study Device or to receive placebo. 64 patients will be randomized into the Study Device group and 64 patients into the Control group. Patients will administer Study Device or Control for 14 days and will have their symptoms recorded until no further symptoms are reported, up to a maximum of 28 days follow-up.
