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 347

The investigators aim to characterise Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in every age group. On the one hand, emphasis is put on the initial presentation, clinical course, outcome and the therapy used. On the other hand further investigations regarding viral and bacterial coinfections, and response of the immune system will be conducted. This study should serve to improve the understanding of COVID-19, to identify risk factors for a severe clinical course and to obtain further insights into pathophysiology of this new infectious disease.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently declared coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) a public health emergency of international concern. Egypt is one of the countries that has been infected by Covid-19. The characteristics of clinical presentation, laboratory and radiological data are not yet studied. Outcomes of covid-19 in Egypt also have not been described yet.
The Cleveland Clinic
The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of ascorbic acid (vitamin c) and zinc gluconate in reducing duration of symptoms in patients diagnosed with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Patients above the age of 18 who present to the Cleveland Clinic outpatient testing and receive a positive test for COVID-19 will be invited to participate.
Prone positioning is a well studied and validated treatment for severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), however there are no randomized studies on the use of prone positioning in the non-intubated patient. It is unknown if this intervention would be helpful in preventing further respiratory deterioration in terms of increasing supplemental oxygen requirements, endotracheal intubation, and ICU admission. The Awake Prone Position for Early hypoxemia in COVID-19 (APPEX-19) Study is a pragmatic adaptive randomized controlled unblinded trial. APPEX-19 randomizes non-ICU patients with COVID-19 or who are under evaluation for COVID-19 to lie in a prone position (i.e, with their stomach and chest facing down) or to usual care.

Many critical ethical questions arise in pandemic covid 19planning, preparedness and response. These include: Who will get priority access to medications, vaccines and intensive care unit beds, given the potential shortage of these essential resources? In the face of a pandemic, what obligations do health-care workers have to work not withstanding risks to their own health and the health of their families? How can surveillance, isolation, quarantine and social-distancing measures be undertaken in a way that respects ethical norms? What obligations do countries have to one another with respect to pandemic covid 19 planning and response efforts?

a brief questionnaire to get a clearer picture of the situation regarding surgical patients with special emphasis on asymptomatic Covid-19 patients.
The aim of this study is to evaluate patient and consultant experiences with phone consultations for endoscopy-related outpatient appointments during the COVID-19 outbreak.
In December 2019, new coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) erupted in Wuhan (Hubei, China) and quickly spread from a single city to the entire country. It did not take long for this epidemic to spread to the world. After that, World Health Organization declared this epidemic disease as a pandemic. As of now, the number of coronavirus deaths increased to 108,281 worldwide. Total number of cases approached 1,800,000 according to the latest information. While the number of healed patients was highest in China, 77,525 people with COVID-19 recovered. COVID-19 is a highly contagious respiratory infectious disease that can cause respiratory, physical and psychological dysfunction in patients. Respiratory rehabilitation reduces the patient's symptoms of dyspnea, relieves anxiety and depression, reduces the patient's need to apply to the hospital, increases functional capacity and improves the patient's quality of life. Respiratory rehabilitation, according to the feedback from China, is very important for patients in the clinical treatment and recovery process after treatment. Rehabilitation of people with mild disease after discharge is mainly based on improving physical fitness and psychological adaptation. It is also aimed to gradually restore the individual's ability to the activity before the disease and return to the community as soon as possible. Individuals with COVID-19 who have respiratory and / or limb dysfunction and chronic disease after discharge should receive respiratory rehabilitation therapy. According to the current findings of the patients discharged from severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-CoV) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and the clinical experience of patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) patients who recovered after discharge, COVID-19 patients may have physical fitness, dyspnea after activity, and muscle atrophy. (Including respiratory muscles and trunk muscles) It is recommended to use respiratory videos and booklets as the main method for respiratory rehabilitation in isolated patients at home. Telerehabilitation method is also a different recommendation option for rehabilitation. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of exercises performed by telerehabilitation in patients diagnosed with COVID-19 followed at home. It is aimed to use an innovative model based on the digitally supported, home-based exercise program.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of oral favipiravir plus standard of care treatment (SOC) compared with placebo plus SOC in reducing the duration of shedding of SARS-CoV2 virus in patients with mild or asymptomatic COVID-19.
