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 23

The main manifestation of COVID-19 is acute hypoxemic respiratory failure (AHRF). In patients with AHRF, the need for invasive mechanical ventilation is associated with high mortality. Two hypotheses will be tested in this study. The first hypothesis is the benefit of corticosteroid therapy on severe COVID-19 infection admitted in ICU in terms of survival. The second hypothesis is that, in the subset of patients free of mechanical ventilation at admission, either Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) or High-Flow Nasal Oxygen (HFNO) allows to reduce intubation rate safely during COVID-19 related acute hypoxemic respiratory failure.

The purpose of the study is to evaluate an effectiveness of the drug Dalargin for the prevention and treatment of severe pulmonary complications symptoms associated with severe and critical coronavirus infection cases (SARS COVID19, expanded as Severe acute respiratory syndrome Cоrona Virus Disease 2019 ). Test drug that will be administered to patients are: - Dalargin, solution for inhalation administration, - Dalargin, solution for intravenous and intramuscular administration.

The Nancy Cov-H-AKI: study is a prospective, non-randomized, monocenter study performed in patients hospitalised for either the severe or the critical form of Covid-19. The main objective of the Nancy Cov-H-AKI study is to evaluate the association of variations (from inclusion to 72H post-inclusion) of 5 blood-based cardio-vascular-renal biomarkers selected a priori, cardiac (NT-proBNP), coagulation (D-dimers), related to the renin angiotensin aldosterone system (ACE2) and renal (Penkid, and NGAL) with the appearance of acute kidney injury KDIGO grade 1 or higher OR cardiac injury in patients hospitalised for either the severe or the critical form of Covid-19

The COVID-19 global pandemic has led to a major professional and social national reorganization: professional because it involves a redeployment of medical staff and material resources, and social because it imposes prolonged containment measures on an entire population. The maxillofacial trauma activity is mainly linked to sports or leisure accidents, fights and road accidents. It seems to appear since the beginning of containment measures a significant drop in maxillofacial trauma activity at the national level, which, if it is demonstrated in a significant way in several French hospital centers, would allow to redeploy the material and human resources related to this activity on sectors in tension due to the pandemic.

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
This study will be concerned with managing patients of Covid-19 while being home isolated.

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.
University of Milano Bicocca
The prone position during mechanical ventilation in patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is able to improve oxygenation and thus reduce mortality. The objective of the study is to evaluate the ability of the prone position to increase the oxygenation of the patient with SARS-cov-2 pneumonia.
This is a prospective, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study in two distinct cohorts to evaluate the efficacy and safety of hydroxychloroquine in the prevention of COVID-19 infection.

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) at the end of 2019 has seen numerous patients experiencing severe acute lung injury (ALI), which developed into severe respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The mortality was as high as 20% -40%. Due to the lack of effective antiviral treatments, supporting treatment is the predominant therapy for COVID-19 pneumonia. Its cure is essentially dependent on the patient's immunity. While the immune system eliminates the virus, numerous inflammatory cytokines are produced and a cytokine storm occurs in severe cases. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) play an important role in injury repair and immune regulation, showing advantageous prospects in the treatment of COVID-19 pneumonia. MSCs prevent cytokine storms by retarding the TNF-α pathway, alleviate sepsis by modulating macrophages, neutrophils, NK cells, DC cells, T lymphocytes and B lymphocytes. After infused, MSCs aggregate in the lungs, improve the lung microenvironment, protect alveolar epithelia, and improve pulmonary fibrosis and pulmonary function.
