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 COVID-19 pandemic has already overwhelmed the sanitary capacity. Additional therapeutic arsenals, albeit untested in the given context but previously proven to be efficacious in a related clinical context, that could reduce the morbidity rate are urgently needed. A decrease of Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is a validated bad prognosis marker in sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome. In contrast, auricular vagus nerve stimulation was proven not only to increase HRV values in healthy Humans, but also to reduce sepsis and increase survival, both significantly, in experimental models. Moreover, the heavy viral infection within the brainstem of deceased patients suggests that the neuroinvasive potential of SARS-CoV2 is likely to be partially responsible for COVID-19 acute respiratory failure and may bear relevance in tailoring future treatment modalities. Interestingly, the vagus nerve (or tenth cranial nerve) connects bidirectionally the brainstem to various internal organs including the lung and to one external organ, namely, the outer ear. Hence, the impact of auricular vagus nerve stimulation through semi-permanent needles will be studied, mostly used so far for pain alleviation, on the outcome of COVID-19 inpatients within 15 days.
Blood samples from participants who have recovered from COVID-19 infection will be obtained and studied. The goal of the research is to identify antibodies that have been generated by the patient to fight the COVID-19 infection. By identifying the most effective antibodies, scientists can make specific antibodies to use to prevent future coronavirus outbreaks or to treat patients with severe disease.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease responsible for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The infection is highly contagious requiring restrictive and stressful measures for patients, family members and ICU healthcare providers. To avoid contagion, patient isolation has become the rule. For patients, these measures add stress to the ICU environment and deprive them of unrestricted family visits. Family members are not only left with fear but also many unanswered questions. In end-of-life situations, many family members are unable to say good-bye and unable to provide support to their loved-one throughout the process. The impact of exclusion or limited inclusion certainly needs to be explored. Moreover, ICU caregivers are having to face new challenges and to work in a unknown situation, juggling with both professional issues such as increased workload, working longer hours and safety issues, and personal issues such as child care and transport as well as family transmission of the virus. The main objective of this study is to demonstrate that the COVID-19 pandemic, as compared to seasonal flu and community acquired pneumonia, significantly increases post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in family members of critically ill patients. PTSD-related symptoms will be assessed in family members using the IES-R (impact of event scale revised) during a telephone interview 90 days after ICU discharge. The IES-R is a 22-item self-report measure that assesses subjective distress caused by traumatic events. It will be compared across the three groups (COVID-19, FLU and CAP).

Clinical thoracic ultrasound plays an important role in the exploration, diagnosis and follow-up of thoracic pathologies. The COVID (Coronavirus Disease) epidemic is leading to a large influx of patients in the emergency department with respiratory disorders. The rapid diagnosis of respiratory disorders in infected patients is important for further management. Chest ultrasound has already demonstrated its value in the diagnosis of pneumonia in the emergency department with superiority over chest X-ray. However, there is little data on the thoracic ultrasound semiology of viral pneumonia in general and of COVID in particular.

The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated drastic measures in order to limit the spread of SARS-CoV-2. The stay home policies for the whole population and especially for frail patients and the express instruction to deprogram non-urgent consultations and interventions limited the clinic visits in neuro-urology department. In this context, telemedicine was seen as a pragmatic solution to provide follow-up care for our neurologic patients. Due to the delay in deploying telemedicine and the cognitive impairment of some of our patients, telephone consultation has been prioritized. The COVID-19 pandemic might be an opportunity to review and refine our practices in neuro-urology. For the follow-up of selected patients, telephone consultations may be efficient and cost effective. The aim of the study is to assess the efficiency and the satisfaction with telephone consultation for the physician and the patient. The study was conducted in a neuro-urology department of a university hospital in France. During the stay-home policies for the COVID-19 pandemic, all the scheduled medical visits were converted into telephone consultation. New patients weren't included. For each teleconsultation, the physician assess the duration of the consultation, the number of tries to join the patient, the efficiency of the consultation, the difficulty to obtain relevant information due to the phone way of the consultation and the lack of physical examination. On the next days, the patient was contacted by phone and was asked a) if he was satisfied of being phoned by the physician, b) if the teleconsultation was embarrassing, c) if he had enough time of teleconsultation d) if he got all the answers to his queries, e) if he would preferred to had a physical consultation f) to assessed the global satisfaction of the teleconsultation and g) if in the future, they may considered converting some clinic visits to teleconsultations. The physician and the patient assessed whether this teleconsultation has replaced a physical visit. The usual transport mode of the patient for a clinic visit and the need to take a day off for worker patients were recorded. The primary aim was to assess the efficiency and the satisfaction of the telephone consultation. The primary outcome was the evaluation of the efficiency of the telephone consultation by the physician on a numerical 10-points scale. The secondary outcome was the evaluation of the satisfaction of the telephone consultation by the patient on a numerical 10-points scale. Four hundred teleconsultations are scheduled for five physicians.

The COVID-19 pneumonia has grown to be a global public health emergency since patients were first detected in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, which spread quickly to worldwide and presented a serious threat to public health. It is mainly characterized by fever, dry cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. Some patients may develop into rapid and deadly respiratory system injury with overwhelming inflammation in the lung. Currently, no specific drugs or vaccines are available to cure the patients with COVID-19 pneumonia. Hence, there is a large unmet need for a safe and effective treatment for COVID-19 pneumonia patients, especially the critically ill cases. The significant clinical outcome and well tolerance was observed by the adoptive transfer of allogenic MSCs. We proposed that the adoptive transfer therapy of MSCs might be an ideal choice to be used. We expect to provide new options for the treatment of critically ill COVID-19 pneumonia patients and contribute to improving the quality of life of critically ill patients.

The aim of this study is to assess the changes in the dietary habits of adults spending most of their time in their homes due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Eating habits of individuals may vary greatly depending on several factors such as geographic location, socioeconomic conditions, education level, knowledge about nutrition and psychological factors. Since this period of quarantine is economically and psychologically stressful, we hypothesise that individuals may alter their usual eating habits.

Since December 2019, a new agent, the SARS-Cov-2 coronavirus has been rapidly spreading from China to other countries causing an international outbreak of respiratory illnesses named COVID-19. In France, the first cases have been reported at the end of January with more than 60000 cases reported since then. A significant proportion (20-30%) of hospitalized COVID-19 patients will be admitted to intensive care unit. However, few data are available for this special population in France. We conduct a large observational cohort of ICU suspected or proven COVID-19 patients that will enable to describe the initial management of COVID 19 patients admitted to ICU and to identify factors correlated to clinical outcome.
