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.

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 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.
Stony Brook University
The purpose of this study is to find out if transfusion of blood plasma containing antibodies against COVID-19 (anti-SARS-CoV-2), which were donated from a patient who recovered from COVID-19 infection, is safe and can treat COVID-19 in hospitalized patients. Antibodies are blood proteins produced by the body in response to a virus and can remain in the person's bloodstream (plasma) for a long time after they recover. Transferring plasma from a person who recovered from COVID-19 may help neutralize the virus in sick patients' blood, and/or reduce the chances of the infection getting worse.

The 2019 novel-coronavirus (2019-nCov) is the cause of a cluster of unexplained pneumonia that started in Hubei province in China. It has manifest into a global health crisis with escalating confirmed cases and spread across many countries. In view of the fact that there is currently no effective antiviral therapy, the prevention or treatment of diseases caused by COVID-19 can be tough for current treatment. This study is a phase I clinical trial. The investigators intent to evaluate the safety, reactogenicity and immunogenicity of Recombinant Novel Coronavirus Vaccine (Adenovirus Type 5 Vector) .

COVID-19 caused clusters of severe respiratory illness and was associated with 2% mortality. No specific anti-viral treatment exists. The mainstay of clinical management is largely symptomatic treatment, with organ support in intensive care for seriously ill patients. Cellular therapy, using mesenchymal stem cells has been shown to reduce nonproductive inflammation and affect tissue regeneration and is being evaluated in patients with ARDS. This clinical trial is to inspect the safety and efficiency of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) therapy for severe COVID-19.

This is a phase I, open-label, dose-ranging clinical trial in males and non-pregnant females, starting at 18 years of age, inclusive, who are in good health and meet all eligibility criteria. This clinical trial is designed to assess the safety, reactogenicity and immunogenicity of mRNA-1273 manufactured by ModernaTX, Inc. mRNA-1273 is a novel lipid nanoparticle (LNP)-encapsulated mRNA-based vaccine that encodes for a full-length, prefusion stabilized spike (S) protein of SARS-CoV-2. Enrollment will occur at up to 3 domestic clinical research sites. Up to one hundred and fifty-five subjects will be enrolled into one of thirteen cohorts (10 micrograms [mcg], 25 mcg, 50 mcg, 100 mcg, and 250 mcg). Subjects will receive an intramuscular (IM) injection (0.5 milliliters [mL]) of mRNA-1273 on Days 1 and 29 in the deltoid muscle and will be followed through 12 months post second vaccination (Day 394). Follow-up visits will occur 1, 2, and 4 weeks post each vaccination (Days 8, 15, 29, 36, 43, and 57), as well as 3, 6, and 12 months post second vaccination (Days 119, 209, and 394). The primary objective is to evaluate the safety and reactogenicity of a 2-dose vaccination schedule of mRNA-1273, given 28 days apart, across 5 dosages in healthy adults. Optional Substudy: This is an optional third mRNA-1273 vaccination substudy, in subjects 18 years of age and older, who received both the first and second mRNA-1273 vaccinations in the main study and meet all other substudy eligibility criteria. This optional third mRNA-1273 vaccination substudy is designed to assess safety, reactogenicity, and immunogenicity through 12 months post third vaccination (Day 731). Subjects who receive the third mRNA-1273 vaccination will exit the Schedule of Activities for the main study and will enter the Schedule of Activities for the optional substudy. Up to one hundred and twenty subject will be enrolled into two cohorts (consisting of participating subjects who received 2 doses of 25 or 50 mcg and participating subjects who received 2 doses of 100 and 250 mcg). Subjects will receive an IM injection (0.5 mL) at a dosage of 100 mcg/0.5 mL. The primary objective is to evaluate the safety and reactogenicity of a third mRNA-1273 vaccination, at a dosage of 100 mcg.
