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 154
The purpose of this study is two-fold. First we would like to confirm that non-contact ECG provides equivalency to current contact methods of obtaining ECG data. Second we would like to investigate whether non-contact ECG can detect ECG changes prior to the onset symptoms from COVID19.

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) emerged in December 2019, and in mere months has spread to more than 104 countries, resulting in an outbreak of viral pneumonia worldwide. Current local quarantine policy in Hong Kong for individuals suspected for COVID-19 requires daily self-reported symptomatology and body temperature, given the intermittent nature and the high dependency of self-discipline undermine the practicality of the approach. To date, the advance in sensor technology has made possible to continuously monitor individual physiological parameters using a simple wearable device. Together with the mobile wearable technology that allowing instantaneous, multi-directional, and massive data transfer, remote continuous physiological monitoring is made possible. The Cardiology division, the Univeristy of Hong Kong has been in collaboration with Biofourmis to implement such technology for remote heart failure management. Similar digital therapeutic system can be applied to remotely monitor physiological parameters of large number of quarantined or suspected COVID-19 at home or in quarantine facility. It is purposed to allow the monitoring team to effectively and remotely monitor COVID-19 quarantined and patients, manage and evaluate the disease progression.

Patients presenting to the emergency department, or needing hospitalization, for a variety of medical conditions often require non-invasive ventilation (breathing support). For example, for a person with shortness of breath as a complication of COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) the gold standard of care requires application of a BiPAP machine. However, in the current environment of COVID-19, the aerosols produced by this machine in a COVID-19 positive patient pose serious potential harms to healthcare providers and other patients. All patients with similar symptoms to COVID-19 need to be treated as positive until definite testing determines otherwise. The best test available for COVID-19 takes up to 4 hours to determine the patients status, which is too long to delay application of a BiPAP. This could lead to either a delay in care or the need for invasive breathing measures (intubation), which requires intense resource utilization, may not be in line with a patient's goals of care, and could cause serious harms (i.e. infection, medication reactions, etc.) in patients who do not need it. The use of a closed-loop BiPAP machine in which no expired air is released into the environment would solve these problems. Building off the failures of a similar approach that was trialed in Italy in response to the COVID-19 crisis, this project will develop and test a novel closed-loop BiPAP system.
This prospective randomized single Center study investigates to what extent the physical elimination of the inflammatory mediators using the CytoSorb adsorber reduces the morbidity of severely and critically ill patients with Covid-19.

This study will investigate the impact of the Double-Trunk Mask (DTM) on the reduction of oxygen titration in patients with severe hypoxemia.
This current proposal evaluates the Longitudinal Energy Expenditure and Metabolic Effects in Patients with COVID-19 (LEEP-COVID) to understand, guide and optimize our metabolic and nutritional care of these high risk patients. As no data exist for the metabolic effects of COVID-19 patients, this data is urgently needed and essential to assist in the care of COVID-19 patients worldwide. We are uniquely positioned at Duke to perform this research, as we are the only US center with 2 of the FDA-approved devices in existence currently capable of collecting this vital data to guide the care of COVID-19 patients worldwide.

The objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of helmet NIV in reducing the duration of invasive mechanical ventilation in order to minimize ventilator needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The study aims to investigate the efficacy of extracorporeal CO2 removal for correction of hypercapnia in coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19)-associated acute respiratory distress syndrome
Viruxal Oral and Nasal Spray is a Class I CE marked medical device manufactured by Kerecis hf (the "Device"). A double blind clinical trial will be conducted to evaluate the Device against placebo in COVID-19 positive, symptomatic patients in Iceland. Immediate access to COVID-19 patients is available through a well-organized COVID-19 outpatient follow-up clinic. Up to 128 patients with mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 will be recruited (so called "higher end of the low risk group"). These patients will be positive for COVID-19, be symptomatic with upper respiratory symptoms, but without involvement of the entire respiratory system. The patients will be randomized to receive treatment with the Study Device or to receive placebo. 64 patients will be randomized into the Study Device group and 64 patients into the Control group. Patients will administer Study Device or Control for 14 days and will have their symptoms recorded until no further symptoms are reported, up to a maximum of 28 days follow-up.
