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 64

Patients who meet inclusion criteria will be randomized into treatment vs control group. Treatment groups will undergo Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and compared to the control group.

This study aim to evaluate the immune response of negative patients during a COVID-19 outbreak. Patients are serially tested with a VivaDiag ™ COVID-19 lgM / IgG Rapid Test to evaluate the immune response in negative patients and the reliability of the test in those patients who develop clinical signs of COVID-19 during the trial.
Brief Summary: SARS-CoV-2 virus infection is known to cause Lung Injury that begins as dyspnea and exercise intolerance, but may rapidly progress to Critical COVID-19 with Respiratory Failure and the need for noninvasive or mechanical ventilation. Mortality rates as high as 80% have been reported among those who require mechanical ventilation, despite best available intensive care. Patients with moderate and severe COVID-19 by FDA definition who have not developed respiratory failure be treated with nebulized RLF-100 (aviptadil, a synthetic version of Vasoactive Intestinal Polypeptide (VIP)) 100 μg 3x daily plus Standard of Care vs. placebo + Standard of Care using an FDA 501(k) cleared mesh nebulizer. The primary outcome will be progression to in severity of COVID-19 (i.e. moderate progressing to to severe or critical OR severe progressing to critical) over 28 days. Secondary outcomes will include blood oxygenation as measured by pulse oximetry, dyspnea, exercise tolerance, and levels of TNFα IL-6 and other cytokines.

This is a prospective observational cohort study of healthcare workers working in high-risk COVID-19 clinical areas, monitoring heart rate, sleep and temperature, correlating with daily self-reported symptoms, oxygen saturations and PCR Swabs. It will provide information about how many healthcare workers develop COVID-19, what their clinical observations and symptoms are.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a potential shortage of life-saving mechanical ventilators. The purpose of this study is to determine whether a novel simpler to device, the automated bag-valve-mask (BVM) compressor, can be used to provide assisted ventilation temporarily to patients in need. This includes patients with COVID-19 lung infection and respiratory failure. If successful, this would increase the pool of total available ventilator hours to alleviate any shortage.

On January 9, 2020, a new emerging virus was identified by WHO as being responsible for grouped cases of pneumonia in China. It is a coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, responsible for the disease COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease). The disease is mild in 85% of cases but the proportion of serious cases requiring hospitalization or intensive care (15%) puts stress on health structures and systems around the world. To limit the influx of patients and avoid overstretching Health systems, containment and social distancing strategies are widely adopted. It appears crucial to propose the easiest possible therapeutic strategy taking into account the ambulatory nature of the patients. Therefore azithromycin (AZM) is an antibiotic known to have an antiviral effect but also which has anti-inflammatory activity in addition to its antimicrobial effect. Azithromycin targets preferentially pulmonary cells (and particularly of the lines apparently affected in COVID-19 positive cases). The aim of this study is to demonstrate that AZM decreases symptom duration in COVID19 patients and diminishes the viral carriage.

The purpose of the COVIDNOCHE trial (HFNO versus CPAP Helmet Evaluation in COVID-19 Pneumonia) is to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of standard care non-invasive respiratory support (helmet CPAP versus HFNO) for acute hypoxemic respiratory failure from COVID-19 pneumonia on ventilator-free days (primary outcome) and other clinical outcomes measured up to 90 days.
The purpose of this study is to develop a safe, easily scalable, and simple method to split a single ventilator for use amongst two or more patients, thus serving as a capacity bridge to save patient lives until manufacturers can produce enough ventilators.

During the last couple of years, a growing number of wearable devices evolved to provide accurate, cheap and non-invasive monitoring of vitals parameters.This connected care technology could be helpful for treatment and care during a pandemic such as COVID-19. The use of these non-invasive remote monitoring devices can help health care providers to assess patient's vital signs and symptom progression, reducing reducing patient and healthcare provider contact and exposure to COVID-19 during this pandemic.

We are aiming to see if participant deterioration due to suspected coronavirus in a designated location (e.g. hotel) can be identified sooner by wearing the sensor. If we can identify sick participants early, participants are more likely to have better outcomes; we believe that the sensor can help us do this. The sensor measures heart rate, respiratory rate and temperature every 2 minutes and this can be reviewed by the clinical team looking after the participants.
