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.

This is a prospective, multi-site study designed to evaluate whether the use of hydroxychloroquine in healthcare workers (HCW), Nursing Home Workers (NHW), first responders (FR), and Detroit Department of Transportation bus drivers (DDOT) in SE, Michigan, can prevent the acquisition, symptoms and clinical COVID-19 infection The primary objective of this study is to determine whether the use of daily or weekly oral hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) therapy will prevent SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 viremia and clinical COVID-19 infection healthcare workers (HCW) and first responders (FR) (EMS, Fire, Police, bus drivers) in Southeast Michigan. Preventing COVID-19 transmission to HCW, FR, and Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT) bus drivers is a critical step in preserving the health care and first responder force, the prevention of COVID-19 transmission in health care facilities, with the potential to preserve thousands of lives in addition to sustaining health care systems and civil services both nationally and globally. If efficacious, further studies on the use of hydroxychloroquine to prevent COVID-19 in the general population could be undertaken, with a potential impact on hundreds of thousands of lives.

All patients included in this search will be on anonymized file: Symptomatic patients consulting for suspicion of COVID 19 with indication to a screening (RT-PCR, Scanner) according to the criteria of the Ministry of Health. To evaluate the diagnostic performance of chest CT in screening for COVID-related lung injury in patients with a clinical suspicion of COVID. CT scan results for COVID according to French thoracic imaging society will be dichotomized into evocative or compatible (considered positive) non-evocative (considered negative) The results will be compared to the gold standard corresponding to a multiparametric element: the discharge summary. Ct Scan performance will be recorded and analyzed.

The current COVID-19 pandemic is providing healthcare organizations with considerable challenges and opportunities for rapid cycle improvement efforts, in diagnostic and patient management arenas. Healthcare providers are tasked with limiting the use of personal protective equipment while minimizing unnecessary exposures to the virus. Results from real-time PCR tests to detect active COVID-19 infections may not be available in a timely fashion during emergent trauma assessments. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, a rapidly expanding body of literature has identified a pattern of imaged lung abnormalities with CT and ultrasound (US) characteristic of an active viral infection. US evaluation provides a reliable, portable, and reproducible way of evaluating acute patients in a real time setting. During initial trauma evaluations, patients may also receive adjunct imaging modalities like the Focused Assessment with Sonography in Trauma (FAST) exam designed to discover life threatening findings that may require urgent interventions. We therefore propose a study expanding on the current FAST adjunct evaluation in the trauma bay that may include lung parenchyma imaging at the initial assessment to help stratify patients into low or high-risk groups for active COVID-19 infections. We believe the use of point of care US in the initial assessment of the trauma patient may help identify potentially infected individuals and aid ED providers to best directing subsequent laboratory and imaging evaluations for these patients, while further directing the necessary protective measures for additional team members involved in the care of the injured patient.

Specific Aims: 1. The investigators will prospectively evaluate and analyze changes in the appearance of the lungs and heart through serial acquisition of focused point-of-care ultrasound images in a cohort of patients with or under investigation for COVID-19. 2. The investigators will correlate changes noted in ultrasound with clinical course and diagnostic evaluation to ascertain whether changes on ultrasound could improve care through earlier diagnosis or identification of patients at high risk of disease progression.

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.

It is unknown what proportion of healthy children have been exposed to SARS-Cov-2 and how many have antibodies. The aim of this study is to follow a cohort of healthy children over six months and measure their antibodies to SARS-CoV-2.
In patients infected by the SARS-Cov-2 Coronavirus a severely progressive disease requiring hospitalization in intensive care seems related to deregulation of cytokines with very high levels of IL-6, IL-2, IL-7, IL-10 and TNF-α. In order to elucidate the mechanism of this hyper inflammatory syndrome we will measure a panel of pro and anti inflammatory cytokines, as well as known markers of macrophage activation syndrome. To determine the role of activation of the complement cascade the most important complement factors and their activation markers will be measured. The changes of those parameters will be monitored after administration of an anti-IL6R antibody therapy.

Background: Oropharyngeal dysphagia (OD) is a common complication in/post ICU patients that have been with intubation/mechanical ventilation or with tracheotomies or NG tubes, in patients with acute respiratory infection/pneumonia/respiratory insufficiency with a severe disease needing high concentration of oxygen or noninvasive mechanical ventilation and also in patients discharged from acute hospitals to rehabilitation centers, nursing homes or other facilities. All these situations are common for COVID-19 patients that are currently filling our hospitals due to the pandemic expansion of SARS-CoV-2. OD is associated to prolonged hospitalization, dehydration and severe nutritional and respiratory complications -aspiration pneumonia-, hospital readmissions and mortality. Aim: to assess the prevalence of OD and nutritional risk in these patients and to know their needs of compensatory treatment following the application of an early intervention, and to assess whether OD and malnutrition are indicators of poor prognosis for COVID-19 patients. Methods: prospective study in which we will use the volume-viscosity swallowing test (V-VST) to assess the prevalence of OD, and NRS2002 to assess the nutritional risk in admitted patients with confirmed COVID-19 at the Consorci Sanitari del Maresme, Catalonia, Spain. We will register also results of the EAT-10, nutritional status, the needs of compensatory treatments of these patients following an early intervention with fluid and nutritional adaptation and use of nutritional supplements. We will also collect other clinical variables from medical history of the patient related to hospitalization and we will follow the clinical complications and nutritional status at 3 and 6 months follow up.
