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.

Our project intends to independently develop a fully enclosed rapid detection system for a total of 22 pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2, on the basis of the QIAstat-Dx fully automatic multiple PCR detection platform. The reasonably designed experiments are used to verify the performance of the cartridge detection and prove its clinical application value. The 22 pathogens tested in this project includes 4 coronavirus subtypes, A / B flu, parainfluenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus, etc., which is of great significance for the differential diagnosis of similar patients.

Currently, the growing epidemic of a new coronavirus infectious disease (Covid-19) is wreaking havoc worldwide, which is caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). SARS-CoV-2 is a RNA virus that display high similarity in both genomic and proteomic profiling with SARS-CoV that first emerged in humans in 2003 in China. Therefore, preventing and controlling the pandemic occurrences are extremely urgent as a global top priority. Due to the lack of effective antiviral drugs, patients may be treated by only addressing their symptoms such as reducing fever. Clinical autopsies from SARS-CoV-infected patients demonstrated that there were major pathological changes in the lungs, immune organs, and small systemic blood vessels with vasculitis. However, the detection of SARS-CoV were primarily found in the lung and trachea/bronchus, but was undetectable in spleen, lymph nodes, bone marrow, heart and aorta, highlighting the overreaction of immune responses induced by viral infection were really harmful, resulting in the pathogenesis of lungs, immune organs, and small systemic blood vessels. To this respect, immune modulation strategy may be potentially beneficial to enhance anti-viral immunity and efficiently reduce the viral load, improve clinical outcomes, expedite the patient recovery, and decline the rate of mortality in patients after being infected with SARS-CoV-2. Tianhe Stem Cell Biotechnologies Inc. has developed a novel globally-patented Stem Cell Educator (SCE) technology designed to reverse the autoimmune response in Type 1 diabetes (T1D), Alopecia Areata (AA) and other autoimmune diseases. SCE therapy uses human multipotent cord blood stem cells (CB-SC) from human cord blood. Their properties distinguish CB-SC from other known stem cell types, including mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and hematopoietic stem cells (HSC). Several clinical studies show that SCE therapy functions via CB-SC induction of immune tolerance in autoimmune T cells and restore immune balance and homeostasis in patients with T1D, AA and other inflammation-associated diseases. To correct the overreaction of overreaction of immune responses, the investigators plan to treat SARS-CoV-2 patients with Stem Cell Educator therapy.

Since Dec 2019, over 70000 novel coronavirus infection pneumonia (NCIP) patients were confirmed. 2019 novel coronavirus (2019 nCoV) is a RNA virus, which spread mainly from person-to-person contact. Most of the symptoms are non-specific, including fever, fatigue, dry cough. Sever NCIP patients may have shortness of breath and dyspnea, and progress to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS). The mortality is reported to be around 2.3%. Thus, early detection and early treatment is very important to the improvement of NCIP patients' prognosis. At present, NCIP RNA detection of pharyngeal swab specimen by RT-PCR is recommended. However, due to the universal susceptibility to 2019 nCoV in general population and limited number of NCIP RNA detection kits available, to identify an efficient screening strategy is urgently needed. This study aim to develop and validate the diagnostic accuracy and screening efficiency of a new NCIP screening strategy, which can benefit the disease prevention and control.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently declared coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) a public health emergency of international concern. Impact of the pandemic of covid-19 on the mental health of health care workers and general population would be affected.

The aim of this study is to assess the virus RNA, and miRNA levels related to viral infection, and inflammatory response in tears of hospitalized patients with a diagnosis of COVID-19 with and without conjunctivitis and to correlate them with clinical condition. Tears will be collected by using Schirmer Test I, a non invasive painless test which can be performed at the patient's bed. Tears will be collected on the graduated paper strips pulling the lower lid gently downward for 5 minutes. Following, the strip will be placed in a 2.0 mL Eppendorf tube and stored at −80◦C (or - 20°C)

This observational study is designed to assess whether focused lung ultrasound examination can improve the diagnosis of COVID-19 lung disease and/or make an alternative diagnosis at a patient's initial hospital presentation. For patients with confirmed COVID-19 the study will also assess whether surveillance lung ultrasound examination can predict clinical outcome over the course of their hospital admission.
The objective of the study is to assess the impact of remote cardiac and vital sign monitoring in patients with coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the outpatient setting.

The current available diagnostic methods used for the detection of COVID-19 takes up to 4 hours. In some cases, these diagnostics tests make take up to a couple of days. As it is highly contagious, people who are in close contact with the infected person are at high risk of being infected. COVID-19 is transmitted through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The desire for rapid detection of COVID-19 has become an immediate necessity. The purpose of Kaligia Biosciences' saliva monitoring device (RBA-2) is to detect the presence of the COVID-19 virus in human saliva. The RBA-2 uses Raman Spectros-copy to detect the coronavirus. Once the sample is scanned successfully, the spectra contains the response of the component present in human saliva and provide results in a matter of minutes, rather than hours or days.

Inflammation and abnormalities in laboratory coagulation tests are inseparably tied. For example, coagulation abnormalities are nearly universal in septic patients. Coagulation disorders have also been reported in many patients with severe courses of Coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19). But it is difficult to assess these changes. Global coagulation tests have been shown to incorrectly assess in vivo coagulation in patients admitted to intensive care units. But other tests are available. Thrombin generation assay (TGA) is a laboratory test which allows the assessment of an individual's potential to generate thrombin. But also in conventional TGA the protein C system is hardly activated because of the absence of endothelial cells (containing natural thrombomodulin) in the plasma sample. Therefore the investigators add recombinant human thrombomodulin to a conventional TGA. Thereby the investigators hope to be able to depict in vivo coagulation more closely than global coagulation tests do.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) emerged in December 2019, and in mere few months has resulted in a pandemic of viral pneumonia. Substantial proportion of patients with COVID-19 have biochemical evidence of myocardial injuries during the acute phase. Possible mechanisms including acute coronary events, cytokine storm, and COVID-19 related myocarditis, have been postulated for the cardiac involvement in COVID-19. It is uncertain whether COVID-19 survivors are at risk cardiac dysfunction including cardiac arrhythmia and heart failure. The prospective screening study aims to evaluate the possible latent effects from COVID-19 in COVID-19 survivors. COVID-19 survivors 4-6 weeks after hospital discharge will be recruited from the Infectious Disease clinic, Queen Mary Hospital with standard 12-lead electrocardiogram, serum troponin, NT-proBNP, and standard transthoracic echocardiogram. The outcome measures include (1) new onset cardiac arrhythmia, (2) N Terminal (NT)-proBNP elevation above the diagnostic range of heart failure, and (3) newly detected left ventricular dysfunction.
