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 35

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.

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.

The patients enrolled in this study will be all patients entering triage with suspicion of SARS-CoV2. Planned activities are required by the nasopharyngeal swab in parallel with the analysis of the conjunctival swab to identify new potential alternative and equally effective diagnostic pathways. Simultaneously systemic data (as Pulmonary images, hematological parameters etc.) will be collected to observe a possible correlation between conjunctival swab positivity and systemic impairment.

The COVID-19 disease has been subject to numerous publications since its emergence. Almost 20% of people suffering from COVID-19 develop severe to critical symptoms and require hospitalization, often in Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Respiratory failure is the main reason for admission in ICU of these patients. Therapeutic strategies implemented for the management of critically-ill patients may often lead to short-term muscular and functional alterations resulting in ICU-Acquired Weakness (ICUAW). These lead to long-term disabilities expressing trough dependence and quality of life impairment of survivors. The purpose of this study is to assess the quality of life, dependence and survival at one year in patients who survived from COVID-19 in ICU and are admitted in post-ICU setting for difficult weaning purpose. Ancillary studies aim to assess the course of muscle function (atrophy, structural modifications), lung function (loss of aeration) and safety of early mobilization.
University Health Network, Toronto
The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of COVID -19 in the cancer patient population. This will be done by looking at the rate of asymptomatic COVID-19 infection in cancer patients receiving cancer therapy, as well as their immune response. This is a sub-study of the U-DEPLOY study: UHN Umbrella Trial Defining Coordinated Approach to Pandemic Trials of COVID-19 and Data Harmonization to Accelerate Discovery. U-DEPLOY helps to facilitate timely conduct of studies across the University Health Network (UHN) and other centers.

During this pandemic period, the goal of the health care system is to optimize the use of intensive care services for patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, given the frequency of complications that can lead to high mortality. When patients with suspected or confirmed Covid-19 are admitted to hospital, whether or not they are symptomatic, there is currently no method to predict who will progress to complications requiring the use of intensive measures in 24-48 hours.

The authors hypothesize that the SARS-CoV-2 virus can affect the kidneys, causing them to be damaged. The present study aims to explain the mechanisms of kidney injury in patients diagnosed with COVID-19.

The primary objective is to determine the usability of the SARS-CoV-2 Specimen Collection Materials for at-home collection and mailing of sample to the testing laboratory.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 hit Spain in March 2020, most of the elective surgeries have been canceled everywhere. As soon as the epidemiology phase of the pandemic changed and the restrictions have been eased, different protocols have been put in place to screen patients for SARS-CoV-2 before surgery in order to reduce the spreading of the disease in hospitalized patients. To the best of the current state of knowledge, no recommendations or protocols have been established to guide surgeons in dealing with patients developing unspecific symptoms after surgeries, which could sign either of a post-op complication or COVID-19. The investigators have developed an enhanced pre and post-surgical protocol both to screen patients for COVID-19 before surgery and to promptly identify those patients suspicious for the viral infection during the post-op.

Richmond Research Institute (RRI) is applying existing and new COVID-19 PCR and antibody tests to help develop methodologies which provide fast and accurate results. Infection with coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) is currently a worldwide pandemic and reliable testing for COVID-19 is crucial to understand who is infected and therefore a risk to others by spreading the infection. The tests that are currently being investigated by RRI include: A. The RAPG-COV-019 kit, a small testing cartridge developed by Biopanda Reagents which detects whether an individual has been infected by the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) by using a spot of the person's blood and displays these results in 10 minutes. B. An already established laboratory test that detects SARS-CoV-2 by a process known as polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This test is accurate but expensive, time consuming and requires highly trained staff and laboratory facilities. C. Development of a quantitative laboratory reference test for antibodies (IgG) against the novel SARS-CoV-2 virus. The above tests are being used by RRI to follow infections (PCR) and immunity (IgG) in their workforce, as well as their families and visitors to their site. The RAPG-COV-019 kit can be used by non-experts and provides results within minutes, and would allow rapid, inexpensive diagnosis of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) infection. The results will enable determination of whether the RAPG-COV-019 kit can make a reliable diagnosis. Collecting this data also allows the gathering of epidemiological data on SARS-CoV-2 including incidence, prevalence and information on asymptomatic carriers. Furthermore, identifying individuals that are infected with SARS-CoV-2 has great potential to improve health outcomes by allowing infected individuals to seek the correct medical treatment as well as self-isolate and reduce transmission.
