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.

Management by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy of Patients With Hypoxaemic Pneumonia With SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
Several patients with hypoxaemic SARS-CoV2 pneumonia were able to benefit from hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) in China. In a clinical case published in the Chinese journal of hyperbaric medicine, treatment with repeated HBO sessions prevented admission to intensive care unit with mechanical ventilation in a patient aged 69 who presented with signs of respiratory decompensation. HBOT is the most powerful oxygenation modality in the body today. HBOT can dramatically increase the amount of dissolved oxygen in the blood. HBOT not only promotes blood transport but also its tissue delivery. Furthermore, HBOT has specific immunomodulatory properties, both humoral and cellular, making it possible, for example, to reduce the intensity of the inflammatory response and to stimulate antioxidant defenses by repeating sessions. A virucidal capacity of HBOT might also be involved. HBOT is generally regarded as safe with very few adverse events. Following this feedback, it is proposed in the context of crisis management related to SARS-CoV2 to assess the value of HBO treatment of patients with CoV2 pneumonia. Indeed, it seems essential to propose therapeutic strategies to limit the risk of respiratory decompensation requiring admission to intensive care unit for patients with SARS-CoV2 pneumonia.

The severity of COVID-19 is related to the level of hypoxemia, respiratory failure, how long it lasts and how refractory it is at increasing concentrations of inspired oxygen. The inability to perform hematosis due to edema that occurs from acute inflammation could be attenuated by the administration of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO). Recently, it has been reported benefits in this matter in patients with SARS-CoV-2 hypoxemic pneumonia in China; where the administration of repeated HBO sessions decreased the need for mechanical ventilation (MV) in patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit due to COVID-19. Hyperbaric oxygen is capable of increasing drastically the amount of dissolved oxygen in the blood and maintain an adequate supply oxygen to the tissues. In addition to this, it can influence immune processes, both humoral and cellular, allowing to reduce the intensity of the response inflammatory and stimulate antioxidant defenses. HBO is considered safe and it has very few adverse events, it is a procedure approved by our authorities regulatory for several years. In the current context of the pandemic by COVID-19 and worldwide reports of mortality associated with severe cases of respiratory failure, it is essential to propose therapeutical strategies to limit or decrease respiratory compromise of severe stages by COVID-19. That is why, it is proposed to carry out this research to assess whether HBO treatment can improve the evolution of patients with COVID-19 severe hypoxemia.

Phytomedicines Versus Hydroxychloroquine as an Add on Therapy to Azythromycin in Asymptomatic Covid-19 Patients
Our previous work on plants has indicated significant antimalarial and antiviral activities. Of these plants, two recipes are proposed for evaluation for COVID-19. It is Cinchona, an antimalarial and a combination of 4 plants with antiviral, antimalarial, antitussive and anti-inflammatory properties. The phase II clinical trial, with three arms and at a rate of 77 patients per arm, received the approval of the National Committee for Ethics and Health Research. This is a non-inferiority test aimed at comparing the therapeutic impact in "add on" to Azithromycin, phytomedicines versus Hydroxychloroquine in asymptomatic COVID-19 patients. After 10 days of treatment, viral clearance and symptom progression will be assessed on days 3, 6 and 14. Clinical, paraclinical and laboratory tests will be performed throughout the 3-month trial. Ethical and deontological considerations will be applied

Add on to Azythromycine, Phytomedicine and/or Antimalarial Drug vs Hydroxychloroquine in Uncomplicated COVID-19 Patients
The phase II clinical trial, with three arms and at rate of 10 patients per arm, received the approval of the National Committee for Ethics and Health Research. This is a non inferiority test aimed to compare the efficacy and safety in add on to Azithromycin, an antimalarial drug, a treatment combination of the antimalrial drug with an antiviral phytomedicine versus Hydroxychloroquine in COVID-19 patients without complications. During the treatment, viral clearance, adverse effects related to treatment, and symptoms progression will be assessed on days 3, 6 and 14. Clinical, paraclinical and laboratory tests will be performed throughout the 3-month trial. Ethical and deontological considerations will be applied.
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is keeping people apart, which can take a toll on physical and mental health. Many healthcare professionals are concerned vulnerable seniors may become deconditioned, which substantially increases risk of health complications and need for hospitalization. To address the immediate impact of COVID-19 policies (i.e., physical distancing, reduced access to care), the GERAS Frailty Rehabilitation model will be adapted to be delivered remotely in the homes of vulnerable seniors. The investigators' aim is to understand how to best build resilience among vulnerable seniors in the community through at-home rehabilitation services (socialization, exercise, nutrition, and medication support).
Effect of a Combination of Treatment of Reginmune Capsule and Immunofree Tablets in the Treatment of Mild to Moderate COVID-19 Patients
While novel drug discovery and vaccine studies are time taking process, re-purposing old drugs against the COVID-2019 epidemic can help identify treatments, with known pre-clinical, pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic, and toxicity profiles, which can rapidly enter Phase 3 or 4 or can be used directly in clinical settings. Immunofree has many of the herbs which have been evaluated by other trials published for Covid-19 treatment. The Immunofree tablet of the test product is an Ayurvedic proprietary medicine and is a combination of polyherbal mixture. The components of this formulation are known for their anti-viral and immunomodulatory effects. Also, Reginmune, owing to its immunomodulatory effect might help in easing the symptoms and decrease the viral load.

This Phase 2/3 trial evaluates four treatment strategies for non-critically ill hospitalized participants (not requiring ICU admission and/or mechanical ventilation) with SARS CoV-2 infection, in which participants will receive NA-831 or Atazanavir with or without Dexamethasone.
Pharmacological therapies of proven efficacy in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are still lacking. Since two clinical stages of COVID-19 are emerging, an early one with typical clinical characteristics of a viral infection (fever, malaise, cough) and a later one with pneumonia leading to progressive respiratory failure, associated with heavy, cytokine-mediated, inflammation, an intervention by a compound possessing both antiviral activity and immunomodulatory effects would be most effective at the earliest possible stage. The purpose of this clinical trial is to test the efficacy of Interferon-β-1a (IFNβ-1a), in COVID-19 patients in an open label, randomized clinical trial. The design of the study is to test IFNβ-1a in addition to standard of care compared with standard of care alone. The primary outcome is the time to negative conversion of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-CoronaVirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) nasopharyngeal swabs.
