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.

Study of Resilience and Loneliness in Youth (18 - 25 Years Old) During the COVID-19 Pandemic Lock-down Measures.
The outbreak linked to SARS-CoV-2 pandemic resulted in lock-down measures in almost all European countries. This online survey assesses these measures implications on Mental Health in emerging adults. The questionnaires evaluate two psychometric variables (Resilience and Loneliness) and Mental Health status (mental health professional help-seeking, use of psychotropic drugs, or possible diagnosis) before and during Lock-down Measures. At least 600 healthy participants aged form 18 to 25 years old will be attended to fill the survey during the SARS-CoV2 Pandemic Lock-down Measures.

This research aims to improve knowledge of the epidemiology of patients consulting in the COvid Possible REspiratory Units (RECOP unit). Indeed, the epidemic linked to COVID19 affects France and impacts its health system. The reception of all intermediate patients will be on the Emergency Structures (SU). Indeed, the French healthcare system centralizes unscheduled urgent care on the ER. The aspecific respiratory symptomatology in "intermediate" patients indicates them all the more at an admission to SU or the diagnostic approach to respiratory difficulty may be carried out. It will be necessary to identify the diagnosis of the dyspneic patient and to define his virological status COVID before referring him to the appropriate units. The investigatory propose an original strategy of dedicating entire care sectors to the care of patients admitted for dyspnea in our ER. These units will be named RECOP units. This study would improve epidemiological knowledge of COVID-19 and ability to receive these patients within the SU.

The mortality rate in SARS-CoV-2-related severe ARDS is high despite treatment with antivirals, glucocorticoids, immunoglobulins, and ventilation. Preclinical and clinical evidence indicate that MSCs migrate to the lung and respond to the pro-inflammatory lung environment by releasing anti-inflammatory factors reducing the proliferation of pro-inflammatory cytokines while modulating regulatory T cells and macrophages to promote resolution of inflammation. Therefore, MSCs may have the potential to increase survival in management of COVID-19 induced ARDS. The primary objective of this phase 3 trial is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the addition of the mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) remestemcel-L plus standard of care compared to placebo plus standard of care in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) due to SARS-CoV-2. The secondary objective is to assess the impact of MSCs on inflammatory biomarkers.

This is a protocol-driven observational study of lung ultrasound and focused echocardiography images obtained in the Emergency Department (ED) and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) settings as a part of existing standard of care. The objectives of this study are as follows: 1. To characterize various clinical and cardiopulmonary ultrasound findings and describe their relationship with the clinical course of patients with COVID-19 in the ED and ICU. 2. To describe, develop, and validate a prediction tool that can accurately predict the need for invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV) and acute respiratory failure in COVID-19 patients using clinical, laboratory, and ultrasound data.

The Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic is unprecedented in its scale of infection and the response required to decrease the mortality rates. Disturbingly, the European and United States experience demonstrates that health care systems in industrialized countries are at risk of becoming overwhelmed. Physicians are already at risk of burnout under normal working conditions, and in particular, when responding to crisis situations. During the 2003 severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak, healthcare workers experienced high rates of psychological distress that lasted years. However, there may be protective factors that may decrease the rate or severity of psychological distress and burnout. This study seeks to investigate the rates of physician burnout assessed at multiple time points during the COVID-19 pandemic. Further, this study seeks to determine the factors that may increase or decrease burnout and psychological distress in such a setting. This study will be a national longitudinal survey of physicians in Canada. It will include all physicians that currently hold a license to practice in Canada (whether in training or a full license). Consenting participants will complete an initial survey gathering information about their type of practice, health conditions, preparations the COVID-19 pandemic, burnout, and psychological distress. Every month, participants will be asked to complete a follow-up survey, describing their stressors, coping strategies, burnout, and psychological distress. The investigators will analyze and report the initial results to help provincial and national organizations support our physicians and mitigate burnout during this pandemic. The results of the follow up surveys will be analyzed and reported following the pandemic. These findings will help keep our physician workforce healthy under normal working conditions and during future crises.
OSCAR (Otilimab in Severe COVID-19 Related Disease) is a multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial to assess the efficacy and safety of otilimab for the treatment of severe pulmonary COVID-19 related disease. Otilimab is a human monoclonal anti-granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) antibody that has not previously been tested in participants with severe pulmonary COVID-19 related disease. The aim of this study is to evaluate the benefit-risk of a single infusion of otilimab in the treatment of participants with severe COVID-19 related pulmonary disease. The study population will consist of hospitalized participants with new onset hypoxia requiring significant oxygen support or requiring early invasive mechanical ventilation (less than or equal to [<=] 48 hours before dosing). Participants will be randomized to receive a single intravenous (IV) infusion of otilimab or placebo, in addition to standard of care.
