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 3 of 3

Radiotherapy in low doses (30 to 100 cGy) was a popular treatment of viral pneumonias until 1940s. Low dose radiation therapy (LDRT) could possibly reduce the inflammation and prevent the cytokine storm thus mitigating the severity of pneumonitis. This is a single arm study designed to assess the feasibility and clinical efficacy of low dose radiation therapy (70 cGy in single fraction) in the patients with COVID-19 pneumonia. A total of 10 eligible patients (as per inclusion criteria) will be recruited and response will be assessed based on the symptomatic improvement or deterioration by using the National Early Warning Score (NEWS). The NEWS score will be recorded on baseline and then on Day 3, Day 7 and Day 14.
