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 World Health Organization (WHO) has recently declared coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) a public health emergency of international concern. Impact of the pandemic of covid-19 on the mental health of health care workers and general population would be affected.

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.

The aim of this study is to assess the virus RNA, and miRNA levels related to viral infection, and inflammatory response in tears of hospitalized patients with a diagnosis of COVID-19 with and without conjunctivitis and to correlate them with clinical condition. Tears will be collected by using Schirmer Test I, a non invasive painless test which can be performed at the patient's bed. Tears will be collected on the graduated paper strips pulling the lower lid gently downward for 5 minutes. Following, the strip will be placed in a 2.0 mL Eppendorf tube and stored at −80◦C (or - 20°C)

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

This observational study is designed to assess whether focused lung ultrasound examination can improve the diagnosis of COVID-19 lung disease and/or make an alternative diagnosis at a patient's initial hospital presentation. For patients with confirmed COVID-19 the study will also assess whether surveillance lung ultrasound examination can predict clinical outcome over the course of their hospital admission.
The objective of the study is to assess the impact of remote cardiac and vital sign monitoring in patients with coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the outpatient setting.

The current available diagnostic methods used for the detection of COVID-19 takes up to 4 hours. In some cases, these diagnostics tests make take up to a couple of days. As it is highly contagious, people who are in close contact with the infected person are at high risk of being infected. COVID-19 is transmitted through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The desire for rapid detection of COVID-19 has become an immediate necessity. The purpose of Kaligia Biosciences' saliva monitoring device (RBA-2) is to detect the presence of the COVID-19 virus in human saliva. The RBA-2 uses Raman Spectros-copy to detect the coronavirus. Once the sample is scanned successfully, the spectra contains the response of the component present in human saliva and provide results in a matter of minutes, rather than hours or days.
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.

Inflammation and abnormalities in laboratory coagulation tests are inseparably tied. For example, coagulation abnormalities are nearly universal in septic patients. Coagulation disorders have also been reported in many patients with severe courses of Coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19). But it is difficult to assess these changes. Global coagulation tests have been shown to incorrectly assess in vivo coagulation in patients admitted to intensive care units. But other tests are available. Thrombin generation assay (TGA) is a laboratory test which allows the assessment of an individual's potential to generate thrombin. But also in conventional TGA the protein C system is hardly activated because of the absence of endothelial cells (containing natural thrombomodulin) in the plasma sample. Therefore the investigators add recombinant human thrombomodulin to a conventional TGA. Thereby the investigators hope to be able to depict in vivo coagulation more closely than global coagulation tests do.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) emerged in December 2019, and in mere few months has resulted in a pandemic of viral pneumonia. Substantial proportion of patients with COVID-19 have biochemical evidence of myocardial injuries during the acute phase. Possible mechanisms including acute coronary events, cytokine storm, and COVID-19 related myocarditis, have been postulated for the cardiac involvement in COVID-19. It is uncertain whether COVID-19 survivors are at risk cardiac dysfunction including cardiac arrhythmia and heart failure. The prospective screening study aims to evaluate the possible latent effects from COVID-19 in COVID-19 survivors. COVID-19 survivors 4-6 weeks after hospital discharge will be recruited from the Infectious Disease clinic, Queen Mary Hospital with standard 12-lead electrocardiogram, serum troponin, NT-proBNP, and standard transthoracic echocardiogram. The outcome measures include (1) new onset cardiac arrhythmia, (2) N Terminal (NT)-proBNP elevation above the diagnostic range of heart failure, and (3) newly detected left ventricular dysfunction.
