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 168
Eli Lilly and Company
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, clinical trial of LY3127804 in participants who are hospitalized with pneumonia and presumed or confirmed COVID-19. The study may last up to 9 weeks and include daily visits up to day 28, and follow-up visits by phone.
Washington University School of Medicine
The purpose of this research study is to determine if a drug called fluvoxamine can be used early in the course of the COVID-19 infection to prevent more serious complications like shortness of breath. Fluvoxamine is an anti-depressant drug approved by the FDA for the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder. The use of fluvoxamine for the treatment of COVID-19 is considered investigational, which means the US Food and Drug Administration has not approved it for this use. This study is fully-remote, which means that there is no face-to-face contact; study materials including study drug will be shipped to participants' houses. Only residents of Missouri and Illinois may participate.

This is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, phase IIb clinical trial to assess the efficacy of injectable methylprednisolone sodium succinate (MP) in patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in COVID-19 infection. A total of 416 individuals of both sexes, aged over 18 years old, with symptoms suggestive or confirmed diagnosis of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), hospitalized at the Hospital and Pronto-Socorro Delphina Rinaldi Abdel Aziz (HPSDRAA), with clinical and radiological findings suggestive of SARS-CoV2 infection, will be randomized at a 1:1 ration to receive either MP (0.5mg/kg of weight, twice daily, for 5 days) or placebo (saline solution, twice daily, for 5 days).
This is a Phase 2, two-arm, randomized, double blind, placebo controlled multicenter study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of leronlimab (PRO 140) in patients with mild-to-moderate symptoms of respiratory illness caused by coronavirus 2019 infection.

The study proposes to conduct an open-label Phase II trial to evaluate the feasibility, safety and early efficacy of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) administration in reduction of transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) and development of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in high-risk, healthy acute care provider participants exposed, directly or indirectly, to COVID-19 patients. There is a more than 50 years track record of safety of HCQ for treatment and prevention of various disease states. Early data on use of HCQ for COVID treatment suggests anti-viral activity and immunomodulatory properties for reducing inflammation associated with COVID-19. Given the lack of data regarding use of HCQ for COVID-19 prevention in healthy participants in midst of pandemic crisis, this study proposes an expedited feasibility study focusing on safety and early efficacy. Prior to HCQ administration, baseline SARS-CoV-2 and other baseline biomarker testing will be conducted. During the 4-week study period, participants will be monitored for drug related adverse events and assessed for development of COVID. SARS-CoV-2 assay and biomarker testing will be repeated at the end of four-week study. Safety outcomes will be assessed by the number of adverse events (AEs) and their severity; and early efficacy as the number of participants who tested positive at the end of the 4-week period comparing to data collected by occupational Health regarding the total number of high-risk healthcare workers that were tested positive during the same period and historical controls from known high risk infection rates. An exploratory analysis of inflammatory regulation and immunomodulatory markers by HCQ and its effect on possible disease modification based on previously studied pathophysiological mechanism of COVID-19. The broader aim of this study is to set a precedent to facilitate a large-scale emergent public health intervention. Purpose would be to mitigate, or abort further transmission of COVID-19. Given that COVID-19 transmission has occurred prior to initiation of this study, the rationale for this intervention is based on prior epidemiological evidence. Post-infectious or vaccination-induced immunity in at least 30% of population at-risk has been shown to mitigate or abort propagation of a local epidemics and global pandemic. This would help flatten the curve of the disease progression, until such time that a vaccine may become available. Data from this study will be used to design and implement a population-based phase IIb/III randomized clinical trial.
This study proposes to evaluate clinical outcomes and viral load in COVID-19 infected patients with early moderate and severe disease admitted to the hospital and randomized to one of three arms. Patients will be randomized to supportive care, OR hydroxychloroquine alone, OR hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.
NYU Langone Health
In this study invetigators propose to administer clazakizumab to patients with life-threatening COVID-19 infection manifest by pulmonary failure and a clinical picture consistent with a cytokine storm syndrome. This is a single-center randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in which 80 patients will be enrolled and randomly assigned in a 1:1:1 ratio to three study arms and received clazakizumab at a dose of 12.5 mg, 25 mg or placebo. Based on interim analysis, the remaining 10 subjects at NYU will be randomly assigned to a 1:1 ratio to two arms that will receive clazakizumab at a dose of 25 mg or placebo. The NYU site will serve as the central data management site for other centers who undertake this protocol. Other sites will enroll patients based on the two arm 1:1 randomization. 60 patients at outside sites are expected to enroll.

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.
