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.

Background: People who are recovering from COVID-19 may continue to have problems that affect their daily life. For instance, they might feel overly tired. Researchers want to learn if exercise can help people recover after COVID-19 infection. Objective: To study if participation in a rehabilitation exercise program can help people recovering from COVID-19. Eligibility: Adults ages 18-80 with a lab-confirmed SARS-CoV2 infection (the virus that causes COVID-19), and are still having some symptoms. Design: Participants will have a medical history and physical exam. They will give blood and urine samples. They will have tests to measure heart and lung function. Their blood vessels will be assessed. Participants will have a computed tomography scan of the body. They will have an ultrasound of the muscles in their arms, legs, and chest. Participants will take a 6-minute walk test. They will take other balance and movement tests. Participants will walk on a treadmill while hooked up to a monitor. Then they will be interviewed. It will be audio-recorded. Participants will complete surveys about their symptoms and daily activities. Participants will take a smell test. For this, they will identify different smells. They will also have memory, attention, and mental functioning tests. Participants will wear an activity monitor on their wrist 24 hours a day. They will exercise 3 times a week for 10 weeks by moving vigorously on a track or treadmill for 30 minutes. They will attend education classes once a week for 10 weeks. Participants will be contacted by phone or email every 3 months for 1 year after they complete the exercise part of the study. They will wear an activity monitor for up to 2 weeks.

The principal objective is to determine the impact of phenelzine on the activation phenotype of T cells and myeloid cells during SARS-CoV2 infection
Institut National de la Santé Et de la Recherche Médicale, France
The purpose of this study is to analyze in depth the relationship of myeloid cell subpopulations during infection by Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Cov2), the virus mediating Covid-19. Myeloid cells include neutrophils, monocytes and dendritic cells, each divided into subpopulations with different functions in immune defense and immune pathologies. The study is based on the following hypotheses: - Infection and the interferon response to infection may induce hyperactive or immunosuppressive differentiation of myeloid cells, that may be treated by specific inhibitors. - Some myeloid cell subpopulations currently identified in our laboratories might be markers for Covid-19 prognosis. - Alternative receptors may be present on myeloid cells, inducing the cytokine storm, a target for therapy. - The expression of Interferon (IFN) receptor and IFN responding genes on myeloid cells and on respiratory epithelial cells may correlate with prognosis and indicate potential treatment targets. - Interferon responses are known to be skewed during Covid-19, but some IFN subtype polymorphisms may correlate with prognosis and these subtypes migt be supplemented or inhibited for therapy.

To assess blood levels of vasoactive mediators that may regulate pulmonary endothelial permeability and contribute to multi-organ injury in patients with COVID-19 disease and to correlate the levels of these mediators with disease outcomes such as ICU admission, length of ventilatory support, respiratory failure, kidney failure, heart failure, and death.
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a newly emerged disease, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The COVID-19 pandemic is having a large impact on the mental and physical health of patients, yet data on the quality of life of post-COVID-19 patients is lacking. There are currently no post-COVID-19 specific measures for quality of life, particularly none which include the views of post-COVID-19 patients themselves. This observational study will recruit participants to contribute their preferences to the creation of a post-COVID-19 specific patient-reported measure on post-COVID-19 quality of life. Participants will be split into three groups: those who were not hospitalised; those who were hospitalised but not in intensive care units; and those who were hospitalised and in intensive care units. The creation of this measure will form phase 1 of the study, with 30-60 participants (10-20 in each group above) recruited to complete online surveys to find out their preferences of areas of life to include in such a measure. This will involve 3 online surveys, 1) to ask which areas of life they feel are impacted and how; 2) to find consensus about the areas to be included; 3) to weight the relevance of these areas in relation to each other. In phase 2 recruitment will open to additional participants and all participants will be asked to complete the finalised post-COVID-19 quality of life measure once a month for 12 months, aiming for a minimum of 100 participants at this stage. All participants will also be asked to complete a demographic questionnaire to inform the analysis of the data.

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by infection of SARS-CoV-2, has rapidly spread to become a worldwide pandemic. Global research focused on the understanding of the biochemical infective mechanism and on the discovery of a fast, sensitive and cheap diagnostic tool, able to discriminate the current and past SARS-CoV-2 infections from a minimal invasive biofluid. The fast diagnosis of COVID-19 is fundamental in order to limit and isolate the positive cases, decreasing with a prompt intervention the infection spreading. The aim of the project is to characterize and validate the salivary Raman fingerprint of COVID-19, understanding the principal biomolecules involved in the differences between the three experimental groups: 1) healthy subjects, 2) COVID-19 patients and 3) subjects with a past infection by COVID-19. The large amount of Raman data will be used to create a salivary Raman database, associating each data with the relative clinical data collected. Starting from the preliminary results and protocols of the Laboratory of Nanomedicine and Clinical Biophotonics (LABION) - IRCCS Fondazione Don Gnocchi Milano, the saliva collected from each experimental group will be analysed using Raman spectroscopy. All the data will be processed for the baseline, shift and normalization in order to homogenize the signals collected and creating in this way the Raman database. The average spectrum calculated from each group will be characterized, identifying the principal families of biological molecules responsible for the spectral differences. EXPECTED RESULTS: Verify the possibility to use Raman spectroscopy on saliva samples for the identification of subjects affected by COVID-19. The principal aim of the project is to create a classification model able to: discriminate COVID-19 current and past infection, identify the principal biological molecules altered in saliva during the infection, predict the clinical course of newly diagnosed COVID-19 patients, translation and application of the classification model to a portable Raman for the test of a point of care.
