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 36

There is significant interest throughout the United States in performing a well-designed study to evaluate whether there is value in using Hydroxychloroquine or Chloroquine as a pre-exposure prophylaxis or post-exposure prophylaxis regimen for COVID-19 patients and at risk personnel. We have designed a prospective double blinded randomized controlled clinical trial to answer just this question. The study will consist of 4 arms: 1. A placebo control arm of 450 patients 2. A low dose prophylaxis arm of 450 patients treated with 200mg Hydroxychloroquine daily 3. A high dose prophylaxis arm of 450 patients treated with 400mg Hydroxychloroquine daily 4. A post-exposure arm of 100 patients treated with 400mg Hydroxychloroquine daily for 7 days.

In this study, patients who have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 by PCR testing without severe disease will be randomized on a 2:1 basis to receive a single injection of NT-I7 or placebo. All participants will receive best supportive care in addition to study treatment. The investigators hypothesize that NT-I7 can increase absolute lymphocyte count (ALC), thus potentially improve immune response to enhance viral clearance, thereby reducing duration of symptoms, minimizing contagiousness and preventing progression of severity.

In December 2019, Wuhan, in Hubei province, China, became the center of an outbreak of pneumonia caused by CoVID-19, and the number of cases of infection with CoVID-19 identified in Wuhan increased markedly over the later part of January 2020, with cases identified in multiple other Provinces of China and internationally. Given no specific antiviral therapy for CoVID-19 infection and the availability of Yinhu Qingwen Decoction as a potential antiviral Chinese medicine based on vivo antiviral studies in CoVID-19, this randomized,three-arm controlled, single-blind trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Yinhu Qingwen Decoction (Granula) in patients hospitalized with mild or common CoVID-19 respiratory disease.

The primary objective of this research study is to assess Radiation Oncology healthcare providers (i.e. faculty, residents and advanced practice providers (APPs) implementation and perception of telehealth for on treatment patients in lieu of in person on treatment visits during standard of care radiotherapy during COVID-19.

On January 9, 2020, a new emerging virus was identified by WHO as being responsible for grouped cases of pneumonia in China. It is a coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, responsible for the disease COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease). The disease is mild in 85% of cases but the proportion of serious cases requiring hospitalization or intensive care (15%) puts stress on health structures and systems around the world. To limit the influx of patients and avoid overstretching Health systems, containment and social distancing strategies are widely adopted. It appears crucial to propose the easiest possible therapeutic strategy taking into account the ambulatory nature of the patients. Therefore azithromycin (AZM) is an antibiotic known to have an antiviral effect but also which has anti-inflammatory activity in addition to its antimicrobial effect. Azithromycin targets preferentially pulmonary cells (and particularly of the lines apparently affected in COVID-19 positive cases). The aim of this study is to demonstrate that AZM decreases symptom duration in COVID19 patients and diminishes the viral carriage.

This phase I/IIa trial studies the best dose and side effects of rintatolimod and interferon (IFN) alpha-2b in treating cancer patients with COVID-19 infection. Interferon alpha is a protein important for defense against viruses. It activates immune responses that help to clear viral infection. Rintatolimod is double stranded ribonucleic acid (RNA) designed to mimic viral infection by stimulating immune pathways that are normally activated during viral infection. Giving rintatolimod and interferon alpha-2b may activate the immune system to limit the replication and spread of the virus.

Clinical specimens are collected from individuals either recovered from or with active SARS-CoV-2 infection to support process and analytical development for a potential cell-based immunotherapy in preclinical research, SRPH-CVD-01. SRPH-CVD-01 is an allogeneic cell-based immunotherapy candidate to be investigated in a subsequent clinical trial under a future FDA IND to treat people suffering from COVID-19. Enrolled participants provide a venous blood specimen (up to 40mL) to be used in preclinical studies and research and development of SRPH-CVD-01. Subjects may eventually be asked to undergo leukapheresis for peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) collection and their specimens will be used to further develop the SRPH-CVD-01 cell product, including a cGMP compliant process to be applied under the future FDA IND.

This study will assess the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in reducing the severity of symptoms in patients with COVID-19
The host response against the coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) appears to be mediated by a 'cytoquine storm' developing a systemic inflammatory mechanism and an acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), in the form of a bilateral pneumonitis, requiring invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV) in an important group of patients. In terms of preventing progression to the critical phase with the consequent need of admission to the intensive care units (ICU), it has been recently proposed that this inflammatory cytoquine-mediated process can be safely treated by a single course of ultra-low radiotherapy (RT) dose < 1 Gy. The main purpose of the study was to analyze the efficacy of ultra low-dose pulmonary RT, as an anti-inflammatory intention in patients with SARS-Cov-2 pneumonia with a poor or no response to standard medical treatment and without IMV.
