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 655

The investigators aim to characterise Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in every age group. On the one hand, emphasis is put on the initial presentation, clinical course, outcome and the therapy used. On the other hand further investigations regarding viral and bacterial coinfections, and response of the immune system will be conducted. This study should serve to improve the understanding of COVID-19, to identify risk factors for a severe clinical course and to obtain further insights into pathophysiology of this new infectious disease.

This is a phase II, randomised, double-blinded and placebo-controlled clinical trial in healthy adults above 18 years of age. This clinical trial is designed to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of Ad5-nCoV which encodes for a full-length spike (S) protein of SARS-CoV-2.

Passive immunization with immunoglobulins is occasionally used as therapy for the treatment of viral infectious diseases. Immunoglobulins are used for the treatment of CMV disease, and is effective as prophylaxis when given soon after exposure to varicella zoster virus, rabies, and hepatitis B virus. Neutralizing antibodies against MERS, SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2 have been shown to be present in patients previously infected with MERS, SARS-CoV-1 and SARS-CoV-2 respectively. During the 2003 SARS outbreak in Hong-Kong,a non-randomized study in hospitalized SARS patients showed that treatment with convalescent plasma (convP) from SARS-recovered donors significantly increased the day 22 discharge rate and decreased mortality. A study in non-human primates showed that rhesus macaques could not be re-infected with SARS-CoV-2 after primary infection. With no proven effective therapy against COVID, this study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of convalescent plasma from COVID-recovered donors as a treatment for hospitalized patients with symptomatic COVID-19. The study will focus on patients who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 in the last 96 hours before inclusion Primary objectives • Decrease overall mortality in patients within COVID disease Study design: This trial is a randomized comparative trial. Patients will be randomized between the infusion of 300mL of convP with standard of care. Patient population: Patients with PCR confirmed COVID disease, age >18 years Donors will be included with a known history of COVID who have been asymptomatic for at least 14 days. Intervention: 300mL of convP Duration of treatment: ConvP will be given as a one-time infusion Duration of follow up: For the primary endpoint: until discharge or death before day 60, whichever comes first. For the secondary endpoints (with separate consent) up to 1 year. Target number of patients: 426 Target number of donors: 100 Expected duration of accrural: 36 months
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently declared coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) a public health emergency of international concern. Egypt is one of the countries that has been infected by Covid-19. The characteristics of clinical presentation, laboratory and radiological data are not yet studied. Outcomes of covid-19 in Egypt also have not been described yet.
Tabula Rasa HealthCare
This retrospective study aims to perform a medication risk stratification using drug claims data and to simulate the impact of the addition of various repurposed drugs on the Medication Risk Score (MRS) in elderly people enrolled in PACE organizations. Our clinical tool would enable to identify potential multi-drug interactions and potentially reduce the risk of adverse drug events (ADE) developing in elderly patients infected with COVID-19.

ONCOVID is a prospective cohort study investigating oncology-patient-reported anxiety, mood, and quality of life during the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants complete a survey consisting of sociodemographic information and self-administered questionnaires (COVID-19 Peritraumatic Distress Index, Depression Anxiety Stress Scale-21, and WHO Quality of Life-BREF). Data collection occurs at baseline and follow-up surveys are performed after 6, 12, and 24 weeks.
University of Chicago
The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of delivering anti-SARS-CoV-2 convalescent plasma to hospitalized patients with severe or life-threatening COVID-19. Beyond supportive care, there are currently no proven treatment options for coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the infection caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Human convalescent plasma is an option for treatment of COVID-19 and could be rapidly available when there are sufficient numbers of people who have recovered and can donate high titer neutralizing immunoglobulin-containing plasma. Hypothesis: Collecting and administering convalescent plasma requires a level of logistical coordination that is not available in all centers. Objective: To establish feasibility for a hospital-based integrated system to collect and administer convalescent plasma to patients with severe or life-threatening COVID-19.
Saint Francis Care
The purpose of this study is to collect blood from previously COVID-19 infected persons who have recovered and use it as a treatment for those who are currently sick with a severe or life-threatening COVID-19 infection.
University Hospital of Ferrara
The present study is ideated to prospectively investigate in patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) due to Coronavirus 19 (SARS-Cov-2) infection and moderate-severe respiratory failure the patterns and changes in platelet reactivity, thrombotic status and endothelial function. The observed patterns and changes will be related with inflammatory status, myocardial injury and outcomes
The Cleveland Clinic
The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of ascorbic acid (vitamin c) and zinc gluconate in reducing duration of symptoms in patients diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Patients above the age of 18 who present to the Cleveland Clinic outpatient testing and receive a positive test for COVID-19 will be invited to participate.
