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 90 of 4498

The new coronavirus pneumonia is an acute infectious pneumonia. The pathogen is a previously unknown new coronavirus, namely 2019 new coronavirus (2019 novel coronavirus, 2019 nCoV). However, there is no specific anti-viral drug. It has been found that the specific antibodies against virus antigen are produced after these patients were cured, which could block the infection of 2019 nCoV on the host cells. At present, immunoadsorption is the most direct, rapid and effective method to separate immunoglobulin from the cured patients. Therefore, the study aims to prepare the immunoglobulin from 2019-ncov pneumonia cured patients, evaluate the efficacy and safety of the immunoglobulin in 2019-ncov pneumonia cured patients on the treatment of acute severe 2019-ncov pneumonia, and provide a new strategy for the treatment of 2019-ncov pneumonia.
2019 new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) infected pneumonia, namely severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) has caused global concern and emergency. There is a lack of effective targeted antiviral drugs, and symptomatic supportive treatment is still the current main treatment for SARI. Vitamin C is significant to human body and plays a role in reducing inflammatory response and preventing common cold. In addtion, a few studies have shown that vitamin C deficiency is related to the increased risk and severity of influenza infections. We hypothize that Vitamin C infusion can help improve the prognosis of patients with SARI. Therefore, it is necessary to study the clinical efficacy and safety of vitamin C for the clinical management of SARI through randomized controlled trials during the current epidemic of SARI.
At present, there is no specific and effective antiviral therapy.In this study, an open, prospective/retrospective, randomized controlled cohort study was designed to compare the efficacy of different hormone doses in the treatment of 2019-nCoV severe Pneumonia.This study explores effective treatment programs for 2019-nCoV severe pneumonia and provides a reliable evidence-based basis for the treatment.

Base on Arbidol antiviral therapy,the investigators conduct a randomized, open-label trial to evaluate and compare the safety and efficacy of ASC09 /ritonavir and lopinavir/ritonavir in patients with 2019-nCoV pneumonia.
In the absence of 2019-ncov specific therapeutic drugs, arbidol is effective against a variety of coronaviruses in vitro pharmacodynamics. In order to observe the efficacy and safety of arbidol in the treatment of 2019-ncov infected pneumonia, this study is planned.

In December 2019, a pneumonia due to a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) emerged in the city of Wuhan, in China. In a few weeks, the number of confirmed cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection has dramatically increased, with almost 150'000 cases and more than 6'000 reported deaths on March, 16th 2020. Little is known on the rate of human-to-human transmission of this new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in the community and within the hospital. Depending on the country, contact subjects considered to be at high or moderate risk of SARS-CoV-2 are, either isolated at home for a period of time defined by the health authorities or, on the contrary, continue their professional activity on the condition that they adopt measures to prevent transmission to those around them. In most European countries, healthcare workers adopt this second option. In all cases, it is most often recommended that contact persons monitor their state of health and communicate it to the persons dedicated to this action. Whether such subjects become spreaders of the virus is not known, nor is the proportion of viral spreader who will develop a symptomatic infection.

Due to the outbreak of 2019 Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia in Wuhan, Hubei province, medical staff and residents are facing great psychological pressure, the investigator plan to use electronic questionnaire to carry out investigation research.
In this single-center, randomized, open-label, controlled study, the investigators will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) in combination with standard care for severe 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) pneumonia.
Based on oseltamivir treatment, evaluate the efficacy and safety of ASC09/ritonavir compound tablets(ASC09F) or ritonavir tablets for 2019-nCoV infection patients.

In December 2019, Wuhan, in Hubei province, China, became the center of an outbreak of pneumonia of unknown cause. In a short time, Chinese scientists had shared the genome information of a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) from these pneumonia patients and developed a real-time reverse transcription PCR (real-time RT-PCR) diagnostic assay. Given no specific antiviral therapy for COVID-19 and the ready availability of remdesvir as a potential antiviral agent, based on pre-clinical studies in SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV infections, this randomized, controlled, double blind trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of remdesivir in patients hospitalized with severe COVID-19.
