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.

This prospective randomized single Center study investigates to what extent the physical elimination of the inflammatory mediators using the CytoSorb adsorber reduces the morbidity of severely and critically ill patients with Covid-19.
NYU Langone Health
For this study, 48 patients who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 will be randomly assigned to four study groups: control, saline, chlorhexidine gluconate, and povidone-iodine. Each patient will be asked to gargle with a solution of either saline, chlorhexidine gluconate, or povidone-iodine or nothing (control group) as well as spray the same solution in their nose four times daily. Patients will then be tested for COVID-19 once daily in the evening for 7 days and viral loads will be measured.

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 double-blinded randomized multi-center trial designed as a phase II dose-finding three arm trial with seamless adaptive transition to a phase III efficacy trial. For phase II, patients were randomized 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 low dose arm was dropped and the phase III portion of the study continued to enroll patients randomized 1:1 to high dose clazakizumab 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.

Intensive action has been taken around the globe to fight the corona virus SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19) pandemia. Clinical symptoms of the infection appear to be variable, from basically asymptomatic infections and mild, flu-like symptoms up to severe respiratory insufficiency, requiring mechanical ventilation at the intensive care unit, and death. Broad testing for COVID-19 infection has been proven difficult in clinical practice and hampered by limited resources. Urgently needed epidemiological data on the rate of silent, asymptomatic infections in the population and the percentage of individuals that have already developed immunity are still missing. Within this study we therefore plan to (i) determine the proportion of asymptomatic COVID-19 virus carriers in (a) German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) employees, who work and are present at the center during the time of extended minimum operation and (b) in all DKFZ employees before onboarding when extended minimum operation has been terminated. We plan to (ii) develop a high-throughput assay for COVID-19 testing as well as (iii) a serum-based COVID-19 antibody assay. Finally, we will (iv) analyze for a possible correlation between oral microbiome and COVID-19 infection status.

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.

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?

INTRODUCTION In critical situations, such as the current COVID 19 pandemic, themes of fear, uncertainty and stigmatization are common and constitute barriers to appropriate medical and mental health interventions. These challenges, when faced by those who live with a chronic disease, such as diabetes mellitus (DM), can negatively influence quality of life and adherence to treatment, compromising the control of the disease. OBJECTIVES The present study aims to investigate the effectiveness of a tele-intervention during the COVID-19 pandemic in improving glycemic control, lipid profile, blood pressure levels and parameters of medication adherence, mental well-being and sleep quality in patients with type 1 DM and type 2 DM. METHODS A randomized clinical trial will be carried out with patients with a previous diagnosis of type 1 DM and type 2 DM, who are registered at the Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre (HCPA). Inclusion criteria will be age greater than or equal to 18 years, collection of HbA1c in the HCPA laboratory in January, February or March 2020 and availability to receive weekly phone calls. Patients will be randomized, stratified by type of diabetes, in two groups: G1: participants will receive a tele-intervention by a case manager weekly to discuss topics related to diabetes management and mental well-being during the social distancing period ; G2: participants will receive the usual care. The primary outcome assessed will be the variation in HbA1c levels comparatively between groups, with or without a tele-guided strategy, after four months of social distancing (or as long as the recommendation of social distancing measures remains). Secondary outcomes will include experiencing confirmation of COVID-19 infection, variation in lipid profile, blood pressure levels and variation in parameters of emotional distress related to diabetes, eating disorders, medication adherence, symptoms minor psychiatric disorders and altered sleep patterns, which will be evaluated with specific and validated scales. According to the sample calculation, 150 patients will be included in the study (92 with type 2 DM and 58 with type 1 DM). Analysis by intention to treat will be performed separately for patients with type 1 DM and with type 2 DM. SCHEDULE The proposed experiment will start immediately after approval of this project by the research ethics committee. The duration of the proposed intervention is 4 months (or as long as the recommendation of social distancing measures remains. This means that the study may be completed before or after that period, based on national recommendations for social distancing in Brazil), with a data analysis plan and publication of the results until September 2020.

Some patients infected by covid-19 develop skin manifestations. These manifestations are still not well known and there pathophysiology remain unclear. Among them, acral manifestation resembling to chilblains appears frequent and quite specific. The aim of this project is to better characterize the cutaneous manifestations occurring during Covid-19 infection with a special focus on chilblains. These acral manifestation could be due to a direct viral effect, but also to microthrombosis or vascularitis. Understanding the pathomechanisms involved could provide interesting clue for understanding not only the skin manifestations but also some of the other systemic symptoms associated to covid-19 infection. This study plan to characterize these acral manifestations by analyzing the clinical and dermoscopic patterns and to correlate them with the non-invasive vascular explorations but also immune and coagulopathy explorations that are done in the CHU of Nice in covid-19 patients.
