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.

Covid-SER is a prospective multi-center study for the evaluation of diagnostic performance of available serological tests
The goal of the research is to assess candidate COVID-19 rapid diagnostic tests (e.g. immunodiagnostic antibody tests, like Cellex qSARS-CoV-2 IgG/IgM Rapid Test, or antigen tests, like Turklab Test-It COVID-19 Home Test, AllBio Science Inc. and Artron Laboratories Inc. rapid COVID-19 antigen tests in order to judge their clinical accuracy compared to Centers for Disease Control (CDC)-recommended molecular genetic testing and clinical diagnosis. Second, it is our goal to determine if self-testing assisted by COVIDscanDX mobile device camera acquisition software platform and telemedicine clinical/technical support (virtual point-of-care) improves the ease of use and immediate interpretation of the tests, thus making self-testing comparable in accuracy and safety to testing in a clinical setting. Third, we are testing antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 after diagnosis with COVID-19 or following vaccination to measure the onset and time course of detectable antibodies from finger-stick blood drops and rapid antibody lateral flow tests. The overall purpose of the study is to dramatically increase the capacity of COVID-19 testing by establishing the safety, ease-of-use and validity of self-testing assisted by mobile device imaging and telemedicine remote support and provide evidence of antibody time-course response to vaccination.

Since December 2019, a new disease named COVID-19 linked to a new coronavirus, SARS-CoV2 has emerged in China in the city of Wuhan, Hubei province, spreading very quickly to all 5 continents, and responsible for a pandemic. France is the third most affected country in Europe after Italy and Spain. Groups of patients at a higher risk of developing a severe form of COVID-19 have been defined: this include patients with immunosuppressive disease as cancer or patients with advanced cirrhosis of the liver. Coronavirus liver injury had been described with SARS-CoV 1 and MERS-CoV. There is no data on liver damage associated with COVID-19 infection for compensated or decompensated cirrhotic patients. The objectives of this project are to estimate the incidence of COVID-19 in hepatocellular carcinoma population, both hospital and ambulatory, and to study the impact on the frequency of severe forms, the prognosis, but also liver function, and the management of hepatocellular carcinoma, in this context of pandemic

The main objective of this multicenter cohort study is to determine the degree of COVID19 infection immunization of a population of psychiatric patients. The secondary objective of this cohort follow-up is to: 1. Clinically characterize COVID patients who are positive for serological testing 2. Assess the socio-demographic, clinical and psychotropic determinants of a COVID diagnosis 3. Immunologically characterize COVID patients who are positive for serological testing 4. Exploring the links between susceptibility to COVID19 and erythrocytic blood groups

Lower Respiratory Tract infections are a common cause of admission to the intensive care unit. Children routinely receive antibiotics until the tests confirm whether the infection is bacterial or viral. The exclusion of bacterial infection may take 48 hours or longer for culture tests on biological samples to be completed. In many cases, the results may be inconclusive or negative if the patient has already received antibiotics prior to the sample being taken. A rapid assay to detect the most likely cause of infection could improve the speed with which antibiotic therapy is rationalised or curtailed. This study aims to assess whether a new genetic testing kit which can identify the presence of bacteria and viruses within hours rather than days is a feasible tool in improving antibiotic prescribing and rationalisation of therapy in critically ill children with suspected lower respiratory tract infection.

COVID-19 has become a global problem. There is an urgent need to improve the diagnosis and screening of patients and healthcare workers for COVID-19 in the UK. Mask based sampling is a method of detecting SARS-COV-2 (the virus responsible for COVID-19) in the breath of suspected COVID-19 patients or healthcare workers in the mask that they would wear in hospital. The investigators have previously demonstrated the utility of this method in other respiratory infections, such as tuberculosis. This project aims to investigate the utility of mask-based sampling is a tool for the diagnosis and quantification of COVID-19 in breath and the implications in a healthcare setting using three cohorts of participants. Initially we will compare the amount of COVID-19 detected by mask sampling compared with standard nasopharyngeal swab, which is the current gold standard test, in patients who present to hospital with COVID-19 symptoms. We will address the length of time COVID-19 is breathed out by people affected by the virus and the how infectious the virus is over time in a cohort of symptomatic healthcare workers who are isolating at home. This will allow us to understand how long someone stays infectious for and may have the potential to inform public health measures, for instance when healthcare workers can return to work or duration of isolation. Finally we will investigate asymptomatic carriage of COVID-19 by different healthcare workers in different areas of the hospital during a screening study. This will allow us to understand the extent of infection amongst healthcare workers and allow us to address hospital acquired transmission.

There is a pandemic in the world by COVID-19. Currently, the pharmacological curative or prophylactic treatments for this infection are not known. Recent studies have suggested that Hydroxy-Chloroquine could be effective in vitro and in vivo against COVID-19. The main objective of this study is to assess in patients with autoimmune disease treated with long course Hydroxy-Chloroquine initiated before the pandemic COVID-19 had an independent protective effect on the risk or the severity of infection with COVID-19.

People living with HIV could have different susceptibility and outcome to the SARS CoV-2 infection. The risk of SARS CoV-2 infection in this population could be no related to HIV infection, immunodepression or antiretroviral therapy, but to the different susceptibility as measured by ACE2 or CD26 receptors. Also, patients with HIV-1 infection could have different cytokine profile and cellular immune response after SARS-CoV-2 infection, leading to a differential outcome,
