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 4498 of 4498

The objective of study is to estimate the sensitivity and specificity of the COR-DIAL based on nasopharyngeal samples taken at the patient's admission in relation to the final diagnosis of COVID-19 made by the medical team.
Rationale In a very short time corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has become a pandemic with high morbidity and mortality. The main cause of death is respiratory failure including acute respiratory distress syndrome, however the exact mechanisms and other underlying pathology is currently not yet known. In the current setting of the COVID-19 pandemic complete autopsies seem too risky due to the risk of SARS CoV-2 transmission. Yet, as so little is known, additional histopathological, microbiological and virologic study of tissue of deceased COVID-19 patients will provide important clinical and pathophysiological information. Minimal invasive autopsy combined with postmortem imaging seems therefore an optimal method combining safety on the one hand yet proving significant information on the other. This study aims to determine the cause of death and attributable conditions in deceased COVID-19 patients. This will be performed using post-mortem CT-scanning plus CT-guided MIA to obtain tissue for further histological, microbiological and pathological diagnostics. In addition, the pathophysiology of COVID-19 will be examined by further tissue analysis.

SARS-CoV-2, has caused an international outbreak of respiratory illness termed Covid-19. The investigators used peptides derived from SARS-CoV-2 virus, to study viral-specific immune responses. COV-CREM is a French prospective monocentric study that will evaluate viral-specific cell responses in positive patients for SARS-CoV-2 on the basis of (RT-PCR) assay performed in respiratory tract sample tested by our local Center for Disease Control.

The unexpected onset of SARS-COV2 infection modified our practices, especially in routine medicine. In order to reverse the epidemic curve of severe cases and slow the spread of the infection, confinement was generalized in France from March 13, 2020.These restrictive measures were imposed on anyone with symptoms compatible with the infection, with the exception of dyspnea and other criteria of severity. March 12, 2020 is the pivotal date when the management of COVID came to interfere with medical and healthcare organizations. From this date, it is likely that some imaging or endoscopic exams have been de-scheduled for symptoms that are sometimes wrongly judged to be non-urgent and have seen their numbers drop dramatically.Otherwise, concerning lung cancer, preventive measures have been extremely strengthened. For instance, it is recommended to delay surgeries for localized tumors, to relieve or remove some chemotherapy or to delete radiotherapy sessions deemed non-essential. However, symptoms that may initially be attributed to viral infection, such as cough, fever, fatigue, or chest pain may be clinical indicators of early-stage Lung cancer. In addition, lung cancer is likely to make the patient more susceptible to pneumopathy, due to a weakened of immune response to viruses and bacteria. Consequently, as necessary as the restriction measures are, a risk of slowing down in the management of the Lung cancer pathology exists. The CBP-COVID Study intends to assess consequences of restrictive measures linked to the SARS-COV2 epidemic, by comparing clinical characteristics at diagnosis, treatment times and treatments, regarding to 2 distinct time periods identical to the calendar, but one in 2019, the other in 2020.

Patient are being asked to provide respiratory and blood samples for a clinical research study because the patients have a virus called the novel coronavirus, or SARS-CoV-2, that causes the disease known as Covid-19. Investigators do not know a lot about this virus, including all the ways it travels from person to person. Investigators also do not know if a person will get sick or not from the virus after being in close contact with someone who has the virus. Because of this, investigators are performing research on the virus found in respiratory secretions to get more information on how investigators can best detect and treat this new virus in the future. Primary Objective - To determine the clinical characteristics and outcomes of Covid-19 in children. - To characterize the clinical risk factors of Covid-19 in children.. Secondary Objectives - To characterize the immunological risk factors and serologic response to SARS-CoV-2 infection in children.- To evaluate the duration of viral shedding in children. - To evaluate the duration of SARS-CoV-2 viral shedding in children. Exploratory Objective
The COVID-19 CHAMPS Study will obtain data on the physical and mental health and well-being of workers potentially exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the course of their duties. Included are a broad range of occupations including those working in the community (police officers, firefighters, emergency personnel, screening staff) as well as in permanent or temporary sites that care for patients (service staff, nurses, physicians and other health professionals). CHAMPS will obtain data on various exposure factors and health and create a registry of participants for extended follow up and sub-studies.

This is a PET/CT study using the 18F-αvβ6-binding-peptide.The goal of this study is to evaluate this peptide in patients after infection with SARS CoV2.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a newly identified, highly contagious RNA virus causing respiratory infectious disease, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Conjunctivitis has been reported as a rare finding of the disease, and preliminary studies showed that the virus RNA could be detected in ocular secretions using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays when conjunctivitis present. This study aims to estimate the proportion of SARS-CoV-2 associated conjunctivitis among patients with suspected viral conjunctivitis presented to the ophthalmology clinics of Wilmer Eye Institute during the COVID-19 pandemic. The investigators also aim to identify whether SARS-CoV-2 associated conjunctivitis is an isolated finding or an early sign of COVID-19.
