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.

Predictors of Cardiovascular Risk in Covid-19 Patients During Acute Disease and at Short Term Follow-up
Northern Italy, and particularly Lombardy, is one of the regions of the world mostly affected by COVID-19, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. To investigate the still largely unknown pathophysiology of this disease, we have built a consortium of Italian Hospitals to include a large cohort of COVID-19 patients from mild out-patients managed by GPs to inpatients developing mild, moderate or severe disease assessed both in hospital and at a 3-6 month follow-up visit). Consortium partners have a wide expertise to allow for 1) comprehensive assessment of risk factors for severe COVID-19 syndrome; 2) study the pathophysiology of its cardio-respiratory manifestations; 3) estimate risk scores also with artificial intelligence and 4) assess its clinical immunoinflammatory and cardiorespiratory sequelae in discharged patients at short term follow-up. To this aim, we will 1. Enroll around 5500 COVID-19 patients (1000 outpatients and 4500 in-patients), which will allow to: 1.1 Phenotype patients with COVID-19 of variable severity 1.2 Assess the prevalence of COVID-19 among GPs in relation with their use of PPE 1.3 Evaluate the impact of patients' demographic and clinical characteristics COVID-19 severity 2. Use an electronic CRF (on RedCap) to record clinical, biohumoral and imaging data of inpatients with COVID-19 of various severity to explore the prognostic and pathophysiological role of immunologic factors, activation of blood coagulation, endothelial dysfunction, inflammatory response, genetic (ni particular X-linked), hormonal and metabolic factors, comorbidities and acute cardiac damage. Blood samples will be collected. We will also use machine learning techniques to develop multivariable models for patients' risk stratification 3. A follow-up visit at 3-6 months after discharge will be performed to identify residual clinical consequences that might affect long-term prognosis.

Study of Resilience and Loneliness in Youth (18 - 25 Years Old) During the COVID-19 Pandemic Lock-down Measures.
The outbreak linked to SARS-CoV-2 pandemic resulted in lock-down measures in almost all European countries. This online survey assesses these measures implications on Mental Health in emerging adults. The questionnaires evaluate two psychometric variables (Resilience and Loneliness) and Mental Health status (mental health professional help-seeking, use of psychotropic drugs, or possible diagnosis) before and during Lock-down Measures. At least 600 healthy participants aged form 18 to 25 years old will be attended to fill the survey during the SARS-CoV2 Pandemic Lock-down Measures.

This research aims to improve knowledge of the epidemiology of patients consulting in the COvid Possible REspiratory Units (RECOP unit). Indeed, the epidemic linked to COVID19 affects France and impacts its health system. The reception of all intermediate patients will be on the Emergency Structures (SU). Indeed, the French healthcare system centralizes unscheduled urgent care on the ER. The aspecific respiratory symptomatology in "intermediate" patients indicates them all the more at an admission to SU or the diagnostic approach to respiratory difficulty may be carried out. It will be necessary to identify the diagnosis of the dyspneic patient and to define his virological status COVID before referring him to the appropriate units. The investigatory propose an original strategy of dedicating entire care sectors to the care of patients admitted for dyspnea in our ER. These units will be named RECOP units. This study would improve epidemiological knowledge of COVID-19 and ability to receive these patients within the SU.

Nursing Perspective on Burnout and Medical Errors in the Intensive Care Unit During Covid-19 Pandemic
The investigators plan to perform an observational study to evaluate the prevalence of burnout, depression and medical errors in a designated exclusive Covid-19 patients hospital in Malaysia, during the Covid-19 pandemic. In addition, the relationship between burnout and depression with medical errors will be assessed. The population studied will be the nurses working in the Intensive Care Unit, who are at higher risk due to the nature of their work at the frontlines of the pandemic.
The unprecedented confinement and social distancing rules imposed by the fight against COVID-19 has forced the majority of the population worldwide to stay home for periods of time ranging from weeks to months. Eating habits are undoubtedly perturbed during this period, with consequential impact on food security. Therefore, the primary aim of this NutriQuébec sub-study is to document the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on diet quality and food insecurity of adults in the province of Québec in Canada. NutriQuébec is a web-based prospective cohort study launched in June 2019 whose primary aim is to provide data for the evaluation of the Government Health Prevention Policy on the Québec population's eating habits over the years (NCT04140071). Participants of NutriQuébec are invited to complete on a web-based platform nine core questionnaires on a yearly basis. Questionnaires assess several dimensions related to lifestyle, including eating habits and physical activity habits, as well as a large number of personal characteristics and global health status. For the purpose of this sub-study, NutriQuebec will invite the 2465 active participants who completed the first-year questionnaires prior to the COVID-19 pandemic to fill out again those questionnaires during the peak period of the confinement period in April and May, 2020. This NutriQuébec sub-study will provide invaluable data on how the COVID-19 pandemic impacts diet quality and food insecurity of adults in the province of Québec.

Since the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, was first reported in the Hubei province of China in December 2019, the US has become an epicenter for the pandemic, accounting for more than 220,000 cases and 4,800 deaths (CDC). The rapid spread of the associated disease, COVID-19, has overwhelmed healthcare systems in spite of unprecedented measures to reduce contagion. The resulting uncertainty with regard to the duration and magnitude of the pandemic and limited availability of resources and treatment have been detrimental to the mental health of frontline healthcare providers (NIH). Preserving the psychological wellbeing of these individuals is paramount to mitigating the effect of COVID-19 and delivering optimal patient care. Of particularly grave concern is how professional and personal distress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic will affect provider burnout (Lai et al. JAMA Network Open 2020). Professional burnout, characterized by emotional exhaustion, career de-prioritization, and loss of self-efficacy, represents a significant threat to the US healthcare system (Shanafelt et al. Ann Surg 2010; Han et al. Annals of Internal Medicine 2019). While burnout has been described as a reaction to chronic work-related stress (Melamed et al. Psychol. Bull. 2006), individual factors such as anxiety increase susceptibility to burnout (Sun et al. J Occup Health 2012). Although data suggests that occupational stress might amplify risk of anxiety (DiGiacomo and Adamson J Allied Health 2001), we have yet to understand how intensified anxiety among frontline providers during global health crises contributes to burnout. Similarly, it is unknown whether factors such as perceived organizational support (POS), a key driver of job satisfaction and performance (Muse and Stamper, J Managerial Issues 2007), modify anxiety and burnout under these circumstances. We hypothesize that diminished POS in response to the COVID-19 pandemic is associated with burnout and that this relationship is mediated by an increase in providers' anxiety. Delineating this relationship is a critical first step in developing interventions that ease the mental health burden of this pandemic and future crises for healthcare providers.

The mortality rate in SARS-CoV-2-related severe ARDS is high despite treatment with antivirals, glucocorticoids, immunoglobulins, and ventilation. Preclinical and clinical evidence indicate that MSCs migrate to the lung and respond to the pro-inflammatory lung environment by releasing anti-inflammatory factors reducing the proliferation of pro-inflammatory cytokines while modulating regulatory T cells and macrophages to promote resolution of inflammation. Therefore, MSCs may have the potential to increase survival in management of COVID-19 induced ARDS. The primary objective of this phase 3 trial is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the addition of the mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) remestemcel-L plus standard of care compared to placebo plus standard of care in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) due to SARS-CoV-2. The secondary objective is to assess the impact of MSCs on inflammatory biomarkers.

The fight against the spread of the 2019-nCoV epidemic has achieved some success in China, but the epidemic is far from over. A key factor making the epidemic under control in China is the government's call for social distance, which has led to few people going out for donation. As a result, the number of blood donors on the streets has been continuing to decline. Urgent recruitment of blood donors is therefore planned during the period from 30 April to 10 May via emergency recruitment SMS . This study has been designed to compare which information extraction frameworks would be more sensitive to blood donors in emergency situations.
