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.

The article presents a protocol of a cross-sectional study of mental health of pregnant women in relation to the COVID 19 pandemic. The primary aim is to compare differences in anxiety and depression scores of pregnant women between countries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The secondary aim is to assess demographic, economic, and social aspects affecting maternal anxiety and depression scores among pregnant women worldwide in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, investigators will be able to compare differences in perception of the different aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic (social distancing, restrictions related to delivery) between countries and according to the epidemic status (number of infected patients, number of reported deaths). The comparisons will also be done according to COVID-19 status of the participants.

The novel COronaVIrus Disease 19 (COVID-19) outbreak has impacted daily activities in nearly 210 countries and territories worldwide. In Ecuador, the city of Guayaquil has nearly two-thirds of the COVID-positive patients in the country and nearly 40% of infected individuals are health-care related personnel. Nonemergent, emergent and urgent endoscopic procedures are necessary to be performed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Several experiences in the management of the endoscopic unit during the pandemic has been proposed. We aimed to prospectively evaluate a strict protocol for preventing potential nosocomial infection of COVID-19.

In early 2020 the evolving COVID-19 Pandemic provided the world and medical community with a generational challenge. As a novel disease, countries were left with strategic decisions and many went into social lockdown. Initial resources and research were directed at upscaling internal medicine and intensive care services, understanding the disease pathophysiology, and testing treatments. It soon became evident that COVID-19 had multi-system effects at it's worst. In orthopaedics one of the most vulnerable groups to COVID-19 were the elderly, specifically those who suffered fractured neck of femur at this time. More literature is needed urgently if we are to understand and mitigate the negative impacts in this group of patients. This observational study assesses the early morbidity and mortality of patients with this diagnosis during the evolving COVID-19 Pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic health crisis forces health institutions to lower their standards of protection as supplies of personal protective equipment decrease despite the safety of front-line workers worldwide . This shortage specifically affects high-quality protective masks, such as those called FFP2. As alternatives, we offer a reusable mask based on a ventilation mask combined with a breathing filter for anesthesia breathing circuits. The purpose of the study is to assess the sealing potential of this mask in the field and possibly prove a non-inferior sealing compared to standard masks type FFP2.

Acute respiratory failure (ARF) is a common condition and a common reason for urgent medical consultation. Assessing the extent of respiratory impairment is important to improve the management of patients with ARF. When Acute respiratory failure is caused by pathology of the pulmonary parenchyma, quantification of pulmonary radiographic involvement may be a component of the initial assessment of severity. This radiographic quantification would only be usable in clinical routine if it can be automated and provide a real-time result. The objective of this work is to assess the feasibility of an automated technique for quantifying radiological lung damage in situations of known or potential ARF.

Background. Angiotensing converting enzyme type 2 (ACE2), a key enzyme of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), is the receptor of SARS-CoV-2 for cell entry into lungs. Because ACE2 may be modulated by RAAS inhibitors, such as angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs), there is concern that patients treated with ACEi and ARBs may be at higher risk for COVID-19 infection and severity. Aim. To analyze the associations between COVID-19 and hypertension, and treatments with ACEi and ARBs. Methods. In this retrospective observational study, consecutive patients hospitalized for suspected COVID-19 pneumonia will be divided into 2 groups, whether or not COVID-19 is confirmed. The two groups will be compared for baseline characteristics, mainly prior treatment with ACEi and ARBs, and clinical outcome at 1-month follow-up. The main hypothesis is that ACEi and ARBs, which interact differently with ACE2, may have different relationships with COVID-19 infection or severity.

COVID-19 caused an unprecedented international crisis. There is an urgent need for an effective regimen to cure this illness. Anecdotal data and some prospective results suggested a role of antimalarial drugs (chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine) in the treatment of this disease with best available data showing value of adding azithromycin. Based on drug repurposing studies done by our team and others, we identified the autophagy/apoptosis pathway as a major target for intervention. Based on in-silico and in-vitro models, sirolimus was identified as the drug that deserves urgent prioritization. The rational for combining sirolimus and hydroxychloroquine is explained in details in the study background below and a short video prepared by study PI (https://youtu.be/-zlOMXJp2hg). The evidence for using sirolimus for influenza is emphasized by a RCT that showed reduction of mechanical ventilation time by 50% (7 days on sirolimus arm vs 15 days on oseltamivir/steroids arm). Safe administration in human subjects is illustrated by multiple phase I/II clinical trials, performed in patients with cancer. COVID19-HOPE trial will randomize patients to 2 arms: HCQ/AZ (Arm A) and HCQ/SIR (Arm B). The main inclusion criteria is an RT-PCR test confirming infection with SARS-CoV-2 along with objective clinical criteria of disease (fever, tachypnea and/or hypoxemia). The primary endpoint of study will be Time To Clinical Improvement (TTCI), defined as time from randomization to resolution of the clinical features mentioned above (no fever, no tachypnea and no hypoxemia). In addition, secondary endpoints will include clinical failure by day 28 (need for intubation and/or death), QT interval prolongation, and adverse events. The estimated NNT based on Wilcoxon Mann Whitney comparison of TTCI in study arms is 58 patients (29 each arm). The study includes an adaptive plan, meaning that after different time points the study results will be evaluated and the NNT and randomization scheme (1:1 vs. others) will be evaluated and submitted to the IRB. Also, if one arm proves to be of no value, another regimen might be introduced based on available data. The study will recruit patients for a year and once approved by IRB and JFDA attempts to recruit other centers will be made (including national and regional centers).

The COVID-19 pandemic is profoundly changing the way people live and work. After the health impact, it is the mental and psychological impact that reaches varying degrees in the entire world population. The previous Asian epidemics have had a lasting impact on the health professionals concerned. In France, no study has yet assessed the psychological impact of this health crisis on the level of health professionals. Investigators propose to study prospectively the evolution of the state of stress and anxiety of all the professionals practicing within the gynecology-obstetrics departments of 18 French hospitals. Investigators also hypothesize that the mental repercussions in terms of stress and anxiety within the same service could be different depending on the professional status and the place of exercise (the French regions being impacted in different ways). In addition to the epidemiological interest, the results of this study may help us to target regions and professionals who will need psychological support during and after this serious health crisis.
