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 primary objective of this research study is to assess Radiation Oncology healthcare providers (i.e. faculty, residents and advanced practice providers (APPs) implementation and perception of telehealth for on treatment patients in lieu of in person on treatment visits during standard of care radiotherapy during COVID-19.
The purpose of this pilot study is to measure the impact of non-invasive pneumatic manipulation of transthoracic pressure on oxygenation in patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) due to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID 19) who are on mechanical ventilator support. This will be achieved by a pneumatic Vest placed around the chest wall of consenting patients who meet inclusion criteria. The Vest is essentially a non-invasive segmental device placed upon the anterior and posterior right and left aspects of the chest wall. The researchers have the ability to inflate and deflate the chambers of the Vest to achieve preset pressures as determined by the protocol and observe the patient's physiological response. Participants will have up to four hours of intervention with the study intervention, followed by 1 hour of post-intervention observation.

COVID-19 Viral Global Pandemic resulting in post-infection pulmonary damage, including Fibrotic Lung Disease due to inflammatory and reactive protein secretions damaging pulmonary alveolar structure and functionality. A short review includes: - Early December, 2019 - A pneumonia of unknown cause was detected in Wuhan, China, and was reported to the World Health Organization (WHO) Country Office. - January 30th, 2020 - The outbreak was declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. - February 7th, 2020 - 34-year-old Ophthalmologist who first identified a SARS-like coronavirus) dies from the same virus. - February 11th, 2020 - WHO announces a name for the new coronavirus disease: COVID-19. - February 19th, 2020 - The U.S. has its first outbreak in a Seattle nursing home which were complicated with loss of lives.. - March 11th, 2020 - WHO declares the virus a pandemic and in less than three months, from the time when this virus was first detected, the virus has spread across the entire planet with cases identified in every country including Greenland. - March 21st, 2020 - Emerging Infectious Disease estimates the risk for death in Wuhan reached values as high as 12% in the epicenter of the epidemic and ≈1% in other, more mildly affected areas. The elevated death risk estimates are probably associated with a breakdown of the healthcare system, indicating that enhanced public health interventions, including social distancing and movement restrictions, should be implemented to bring the COVID-19 epidemic under control." March 21st 2020 -Much of the United States is currently under some form of self- or mandatory quarantine as testing abilities ramp up.. March 24th, 2020 - Hot spots are evolving and identified, particularly in the areas of New York-New Jersey, Washington, and California. Immediate attention is turned to testing, diagnosis, epidemiological containment, clinical trials for drug testing started, and work on a long-term vaccine started. The recovering patients are presenting with mild to severe lung impairment as a result of the viral attack on the alveolar and lung tissues. Clinically significant impairment of pulmonary function appears to be a permanent finding as a direct result of the interstitial lung damage and inflammatory changes that accompanied. This Phase 0, first-in-kind for humans, is use of autologous, cellular stromal vascular fraction (cSVF) deployed intravenously to examine the anti-inflammatory and structural potential to improve the residual, permanent damaged alveolar tissues of the lungs.

The investigators aim to deliver a tele-wellness supported app to Baltimore City's Family Child Care Home (FCCH) providers who are caring for children of Essential Personnel. Once a pre-survey is conducted, login information will be assigned to 30 Family Child Care Home providers and parents the FCCH serve. Providers and Parents will receive self-care and parenting/parent engagement support through the app and through a tele-wellness service, Ask a Nurse, provided by community health nurses at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. Children will have access to gamified learning materials in early literacy, math, social-emotional learning, and nutrition.

The COVID-19 can cause important sequels in the respiratory system by bilateral pneumonia and frequently presents loss of strength, dyspnea, polyneuropathies and multi-organic affectation. Long COVID-19 has been defined as the condition occurring in individuals with a history of probable or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection, with related symptoms lasting at least 2 months and not explainable by an alternative diagnosis. The practice of digital physiotherapy presents itself as a promising complementary treatment method to standard physiotherapy, playing a key role in the recovery of function in subjects who have passed the disease and who maintain some symptomatology over time. The aims of this research are to explore the effect of a digital physiotherapy intervention on functional recovery in patients diagnosed with Long COVID-19 and to identify the level of adherence to the treatment carried out. Physiotherapy interventions acquires a fundamental role in the recovery of the functions and the quality of life. As secondary objectives, the aim is to identify the satisfaction and perception of patients with the intervention and the presence of barriers to its implementation (throught a qualitative research), as well as to evaluate the cost-effectiveness from the perspective of the health system. A quasi-experimental pre-post study assessed initially and at the end of the 4-week intervention the functional capacity (1-min STS and SPPB) and the adherence (software). The hypothesis of this research is that the implementation of a TR program presents positive results. If hypothesis is confirmed, that would be an opportunity to define new policies and interventions to address this disease and its consequences.

In December 2019, a cluster of pneumonia cases of unidentified cause emerged in Wuhan,was identified as the culprit of this disease currently being identified as "Coronavirus Disease 2019" (COVID-19) by World Health Organization. Coronavirus was found to not only target the patient's lungs but also multiple organs. Around 2-33% of Coronavirus Disease-19 patients developed gastrointestinal symptoms. Studies have shown that Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SAR-CoV-2) was found in patient's feces, suggesting that the virus can spread through feces. In our previous study, stool samples from 15 patients with COVID-19 were analysed. Depleted symbionts and gut dysbiosis were noted even after patients were detected negative of SARS-CoV-2. A series of microbiota were correlated inversely with the disease severity and virus load. Gut microbiota could play a role in modulating host immune response and potentially influence disease severity and outcomes. The investigators are uncertain about the impact of synbiotic on patients with COVID-19. However, a therapeutic strategy aiming at investigating the gut Imicrobiota of patients with COVID-9 who take synbiotic or not, leading to lesser progression to severe disease, less hospital stay and improved quality of life.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) has caused a global pandemic and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The mortality rate for COVID-19 patients admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) who require mechanical intubation is approximately 75%. While the pathophysiology of severe COVID-19 has yet to be fully understood, it is possible that a combination of high viral loads and an overactive dysregulated inflammatory response may contribute. Therefore, the clearance of SARS-CoV-2 virus and cytokines could provide a more opportunistic environment for the innate immune system to clear the virus and establish lasting immunity. The Seraph®-100 Microbind® Affinity Blood Filter (Seraph®-100) is an extracorporeal broad-spectrum sorbent hemoperfusion filter for removing virus and cytokines from the blood. The FDA authorized an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for treatment of severe COVID-19 with the Seraph®-100. As part of the EUA, this registry study will collect de-identified data to assess safety and efficacy on the use of Seraph®-100 Microbind® Affinity Blood Filter in the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
