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 2820 of 2820

This study will evaluate the efficacy of various sample collection methods for use with the Spartan COVID-19 System. It will compare the results from the Spartan COVID-19 System with results that are obtained using a predicate lab-based COVID-19 test that uses a nasopharyngeal swab sample. The goal is to determine which sample collection methods are most effective in capturing SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The recent COVID-19 outbreak has put the health care workers on the frontline to interact and provide support to the patients. Based on previous disease outbreak-associated studies, it is evident that these individuals are at a high-risk of developing psychological distress such as burnout, anxiety, depression, and stress (BADS). Thus, the current study aims to evaluate the mental health outcomes of healthcare workers dealing with COVID-19 patients within Qatar and internationally, during and after the COVID-19 crisis. The participants will be divided into two groups: those working with COVID-19 patients and those not working with COVID-19 patients. The magnitude of symptoms of BADS will be assessed using electronic versions of the standardized questionnaires: Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI-HSS), Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale (DASS-21), and Conditions for Work Effectiveness (CWEQ). A follow-up survey will be sent to both groups after the COVID-19 crisis to assess their vulnerability to develop post-trauma stress disorder (PTSD) using a PDS-5 survey.

This study is an observational study (Non-interventional study) to evaluate the safety and efficacy of favipiravir in patients older than 15 years of age, diagnosed with COVID-19 and initiated treatment with favipiravir before enrollment to the study. Patients who have already had a routine favipiravir treatment decision or alternatively favipiravir treatment started at the time of enrollment, will be included in this study.

Novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2: severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2) pneumonia often develop the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Lung protective ventilation strategy consisting of low tidal volume and high positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) is recommended. However, it is not clear whether injured lungs from SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia have the same mechanical properties, especially response to PEEP as common ARDS. Therefore, the investigators propose an observational study to analyze respiratory mechanics and lung recruitablity using EIT (electrical impedance tomography) in patients with ARDS due to SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia.

The primary purpose of this study is to gain an understanding of how experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, regardless of COVID-19 status, may have impacted multiple domains of health-related quality of life and other areas such as COVID-19 specific psychological distress, and disruptions to health care, finances and social interactions. We will also evaluate the extent to which resiliency factors such as social support, perceived benefits under times of stress, and ability to manage stress may buffer associations between COVID-19 experiences and HRQoL. To meet these objectives, we have developed a 10-minute questionnaire that taps into these areas and is based on prior work addressing concerns of other pandemics or national crises. Participants will have previously consented to protocol PA15-0336 and have provided prior lifestyle data. This will allow us to connect the COVID-19 survey data with prior existing data.

The study will follow COVID-19 patients who required intensive care after 3-6 months and one year after discharge from the ICU with functional level as well as organ function to assess recovery after COVID-19. Blood and urine will be collected for biobanking.

The QUICK study main aim is to assess the predictive value at Day 1, of a model built on lung ultrasound (LUS) and clinical data, both recorded at hospital admission of COVID-19 patients.

Physician burnout has a significant impact on the wellness and productivity of physicians as well as patient health outcomes. Managing burnout among frontline workers is critical to Canada's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to support frontline workers and reduce inefficiencies and medical errors frequently linked to burnout, ultimately improving our ability to detect, treat and manage COVID-19 cases. Therefore, this trial aims to assess the effects of an 8-session intervention over 3 months for burnout in physician residents in residency programs in Canada and the United States of America during the COVID-19 pandemic. This trial will provide evidence to inform health system management and public health response early and effectively so as to maintain the integrity of our workforce during and post-pandemic. The virtual delivery platform renders the proposed intervention easily disseminated internationally, in low- middle- and high- income countries and across urban and rural cities.

The investigators have developed supportive text-messages in English and Spanish to help people cope with the stress and anxiety of COVID-19 social distancing. The purpose of this study is to examine if automated text-messages will improve depression and anxiety symptoms and enhance positive mood. Additionally, the investigators will compare the effectiveness of sending messages on a random schedule (using a micro-randomized trial design) or sent by a reinforcement learning policy on overall change in depression and anxiety symptoms and daily mood during the 8-week study.

The Primary objective is to explore ambulance service attendance at incidents involving alcohol and/or substance use over the period of the pandemic lockdown, and the following months. This will be to determine prevalence and explore factors such as patient gender, age, ethnicity or location. Analysis will examine the calls over the course of the year prior to the lockdown, and then compare this to the period of lockdown and following months.
