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 67
The Cleveland Clinic
The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of ascorbic acid (vitamin c) and zinc gluconate in reducing duration of symptoms in patients diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Patients above the age of 18 who present to the Cleveland Clinic outpatient testing and receive a positive test for COVID-19 will be invited to participate.

During the COVID-19 pandemic several countries have seen a high risk of transmission for health care personnel, with some countries having as many 20-25% of nurses and doctors either infected or showing symptoms of COVID-19. In this prospective cohort study, we will systematically screen all hospital staff in the Capital Region of Denmark for IgM and IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 using a point of care tests and an Elisa kit. Testing will be offered 3 times: In April 2020, Maj 2020 and September 2020. All participants will submit a questionnaire regarding exposures, risk factors and symptoms of COVID-19 in relation to each testing. Follow-up will be through electronic patient records and national registries. We will compare the group of health care personnel with data from a control group of healthy volunteer blood donors from the Danish Blood Donor Study. The aim of the study is to investigate the proportion of hospital staff with SARS-CoV-2 antibodies during the study period compared to a control group representing the Danish population. We will compare the test characteristics of the two methods of testing, a point of care test and Elisa. Further, we will investigate the extent to which prior immunization or infection is protective for future infection with COVID-19.

Summary of the study Study population: A representative sample of the Viennese population stratified by age and gender (data from the Vienna Health Study LEAD) Potential output and analysis: - Extent of age-specific infection and antibody formation - Cumulative incidence of infection - Rate of asymptomatic infection - Relationship with socioeconomics, lifestyle and risk factors (comorbidities) Study design: Prospective, longitudinal, stratified by age and gender Duration of study: Initial testing as soon as possible and repeat based on monitoring of the pandemic curve (probably after 2-3 months) Information to be obtained from participants: - serum samples for information on SARS-CoV2 infection and antibody formation - data on clinical symptoms
Doctors, nurses and staff members of ear-nose and throat (ENT) departments are at high risk due to aerosol-inducing diagnostic procedures and surgery during the COVID-19 epidemic. Reports from China, Spain, Italy and England report of fatal cases among ENT specialists. With a concurrent lack of personal protection, it is of paramount importance to identify patients and healthcare workers at an early stage to prevent a COVID-19 outbreak in the department. A baseline study of all healthcare workers has been performed. Follow-up will be accomplished by interval testing, antibody measurements and REDcap Covid-19 questionnaires. All patients at risk of carrying SARS-CoV-2, or who are candidates for high-risk airway surgery will be tested. Infection control measures at the department will be implemented progressively according to the real-time surveillance results from both patients and healthcare workers.

This study is being conducted to study the use and application of a point-of-care (POC) Covid-19 test developed by Spartan BioSciences and recently approved for clinical use by Health Canada. Phase I of this study will determine the best route for the swabs (nasal, throat, or both), and to determine if this POC test results are comparable to the standard core-lab test results.

The purpose of this research is to collect information about coronavirus exposures, symptoms, and health care visits due to the among Atrium Health clients and health care workers. Participation in this study will involve completing a daily questionnaire which covers participants coronavirus illness history or symptoms, health care seeking behaviors and treatments, contact with other sick people, and for health care workers, their use of personal protective equipment.

Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Nitazoxanide (NTZ) for Pre- and Post Exposure Prophylaxis of COVID-19 and Other Viral Respiratory Illnesses (VRI) in Healthcare Workers and Others at Increased Risk of SARS-CoV-2 Infection

Covid-19 infection is an on-going pandemic with worse diagnosis in adults with comorbid conditions such as hypertension and cardiopulmonary diseases. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is common in those comorbidities and may contribute to worse prognosis for the Covid-19 cases.

Purpose: To determine the number of asymptomatic individuals who have antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19

In light of its high morbidity and mortality, COronaVIrus Disease 19 (COVID-19) pandemic spread is considered an unprecedented global health challenge. Given the very limited therapeutic options available against Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome - CoronaVirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) epidemic at this time, the evaluation of new resources, designed in the first instance for other pathologies but potentially active against COVID-19, represents a priority in clinical research. This is an observational, retrospective, non-profit study on the adjuvant use of bacteriotherapy in the early control of disease progression in patients affected by COVID-19 and treated with the current standard of care on the basis of the interim guidelines of the Italian Society of Infectious and Tropical Diseases. The main purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of bacteriotherapy in reducing the clinical impact of acute diarrhea, containing the progression of COVID-19 and preventing the need for hospitalization in intensive care units.
