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 10 of 29
This protocol proposes to use IC14, a recombinant chimeric monoclonal antibody (mAb) recognizing human CD14, to block CD14-mediated cellular activation in patients early in the development of ARDS. The binding of IC14 to human CD14 prevents CD14 from participating in the recognition of PAMPs and DAMPs due to SARS-CoV-2 infection. The putative mechanism of action of IC14 in ARDS is blockade of PAMP and DAMP interactions with CD14, thus attenuating the inflammatory cascade that leads to increased endothelial and epithelial permeability and injury resulting in alveolar injury and fluid accumulation characteristic of ARDS. IC14 is a chimeric monoclonal antibody that binds to CD14 with high affinity and inhibits signaling via membrane and soluble CD14. Blocking CD14 with IC14 treatment in normal volunteers strongly inhibits systemic inflammation in response to bacterial endotoxin (LPS). University of Washington conducted a small NIH-funded pilot trial of IC14 treatment in 13 patients with ARDS, which suggested that IC14 treatment reduced alveolar inflammation and decreased BAL cytokines. IC14 was also the subject of IND 105803 for a phase 2 study of ARDS from all causes which we propose to revise for the COVID-19 indication. A dosing regimen for IC14 with favorable pharmacokinetics supporting once daily intravenous dosing has been defined, making this an acceptable treatment for hospitalized patients. Two pharmacodynamic biomarkers can be used that are related to CD14, measurements of sCD14 (serum at baseline; urine at baseline and follow up) as well as a CD14 fragment (sCD14-ST; presepsin). A CD14 target engagement assay is available. Therefore, because of the central role of CD14 in the amplification of lung inflammatory responses leading to severe lung injury and the safety record of IC14 in humans, we propose to have an open-label protocol to test the safety and potential efficacy of IC14 treatment in preventing the progression of severe respiratory disease in patients hospitalized with COVID-19.
To provide ruxolitinib through an expanded access program for the treatment of cytokine storm due to COVID-19 in the United States to patients who are eligible but not able to be hospitalized or who are hospitalized with a clinical diagnosis and/or positive test for SARD-CoV-2 infection.
This protocol provides access to eculizumab treatment for participants with severe COVID-19.

Prospective, observational, clinical investigation of PMX cartridge use in COVID 19 patients with septic shock
U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command
This treatment protocol is designed to provide a treatment option for patients diagnosed with severe or life-threatening COVID-19 or judged by the subinvestigator (treating physician) to be at high risk of progressing to severe or life threatening disease
The search for novel therapies to address the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is ongoing. No proven therapies have been identified to prevent progression of the virus. Preliminary data suggest that inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) could have benefit in preventing viral progression and reducing reliance on supplemental oxygen and ventilator support. Expanded access allows for iNO to be delivered via the portable INOpulse delivery system for the treatment of COVID-19.

I. Study Design: This is a single-arm feasibility study to assess the safety and efficacy of anti-SARS-CoV-2 convalescent plasma (CP) in 1. intubated, mechanically ventilated patients with confirmed COVID-19 pneumonia by chest X-ray or chest CT. 2. hospitalized patients with acute respiratory symptoms between 3 and 7 days after the onset of symptoms, with COVID-19. II. Study Population: 1. Population 1: Mechanically ventilated intubated COVID-19 patients aged 18 years or older. 2. Population 2: Hospitalized COVID-19 patients aged ≥18 years of age with respiratory symptoms within 3 to 7 days from the beginning of illness. III. Study Agent: SARS-CoV-2 convalescent plasma (1-2 units; ~200-400 mL at neutralization antibody titer >1:160.

This is an expanded access treatment protocol to treat up to 100 patients with severe or life-threatening, laboratory confirmed COVID-19 with COVID-19 convalescent plasma.
University of Colorado, Denver
This expanded access program will provide access to COVID-19 convalescent plasma 150 or more individuals with moderate to severe or life-threatening manifestations of COVID-19, or documented to be at high risk of developing such manifestations at participating hospitals in Colorado.COVID-19 convalescent plasma is the liquid part of blood that is collected from patients who have recovered from COVID-19. Convalescent plasma collected from individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 contains antibodies to SARS-CoV-2. Preliminary evidence and data collected during other respiratory virus outbreaks (including the 2003 SARS-CoV-1 epidemic, the 2009-2010 H1N1 influenza virus pandemic, and the 2012 MERS-CoV epidemic) suggest that the antibodies in convalescent plasma may be effective in fighting the infection.
Convalescent plasma has been administered to treat different infectious diseases previously with some success. There is currently no approved and proven treatment options available for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19 virus). Some early data has shown a potential benefit in treating hospitalized patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 with convalescent plasma infusions of fresh plasma donated by fully recovered COVID-19 patients. The antibodies present in the recovered patients' plasma may be of benefit in helping critically ill and infected patients recover from the COVID-19 virus.
