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.

Institute of Cardiology, Warsaw, Poland
Hospitalized patients with COVID-19 will be included in the study in centers around Poland. After the hospitalization, a short questionnaire will be completed, including pre-hospitalization diagnoses, pre-hospitalization medications, clinical status on admission, the course, complication and the duration of hospitalization. The questionnaire will be available in paper form and on-line.
Facing the unusual situation imposed by the coronavirus disease, the aim of this study is to evaluate the risk and effects of less frequent hemodialysis on prevalent patients

During this pandemic period, the goal of the health care system is to optimize the use of intensive care services for patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, given the frequency of complications that can lead to high mortality. When patients with suspected or confirmed Covid-19 are admitted to hospital, whether or not they are symptomatic, there is currently no method to predict who will progress to complications requiring the use of intensive measures in 24-48 hours.

Coronavirus COVID-19 is an emerging virus also called Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Eighty percent of patients are poor or asymptomatic. However, there are major respiratory complications for some patients, requiring intensive care hospitalization and possibly leading to death in 5% of cases. One of the hypotheses put forward is that much of the pathophysiology is due to endothelial dysfunction associated with disseminated intravascular coagulation. The covid-19 pathology could induce coagulation impairment as observed during sepsis. An increase in D-dimer levels during covid-19 disease is itself associated with excess mortality. While D-dimers are highly sensitive, they are not specific for clotting activity. They may be increased in many other circumstances, particularly in inflammation. On the other hand, the infection stimulates the release of extracellular vesicles. These vesicles, of multiple cellular origin, are an actor of vascular homeostasis, and participate in the state of hyperactivation of coagulation. They have a major role in the prothrombotic state and the development of coagulopathy associated with sepsis. The aim of our monocentric prospective study would be to study early and more specific markers of hypercoagulability and markers of routine endothelial dysfunction, as soon as the patient is hospitalized, in order to predict the risk of hospitalization in intensive care.
Hospital St. Joseph, Marseille, France
Up to date, and since December 31st 2019, 2 520 522 cases of COVID-19 including 176 786 deaths, have been reported worldwide. Global efforts are made to save lives and decrease morbidity by evaluating therapeutic strategies. Pregnant women with COVID-19 are at high-risk of severe complications and mortality from COVID-19 infection, due to physiologic and immune changes occurring during pregnancy. These risks include development of maternal hypoxemic respiratory failure due to severe pneumonia, hospitalization in intensive care, death; but also, fetal morbidity-mortality with chronic and/or acute fetal distress, intrauterine growth retardation, intrauterine death and neonatal morbidity, mainly due to induced preterm birth and maternal-fetal transmission. Knowledge of these epidemiologic facts on SARS-Cov-2 infection in pregnant women is currently limited to small case-series. No drug has demonstrated solid evidence in treating SARS-Cov-2 virus. Nevertheless, in vitro studies and tests in COVID-19 positive patients treated with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin merit further evaluation. Pregnant women are systematically excluded from drug trials, and treatment options for this high-risk population remain untested. The aim of our study is to screen pregnant women presenting minor symptoms, for COVID-19 and to evaluate efficacy of hydroxychloroquine-azithromycin treatment in preventing aggravation of symptoms with development of hypoxemic respiratory failure and complications of pregnancy.

The ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is causing a major global health crisis and is shaking up hospital organizations. To date, the recognized risk factors for severe forms of Covid-19 infection are elderly patients (> 70 years), obese patients, patients with chronic renal or respiratory pathologies, cardiovascular history (stroke or coronary artery disease), chronic respiratory conditions, high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer. Covid-19 is manifested by a risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome requiring management by invasive ventilation. The lethality of this infection is around 4% in the current data. Drastic precautionary measures for the transmission of the virus, as well as the provision of critical care beds by canceling any scheduled non-urgent intervention or consultation, have shaken up the hospital organization. In this context, it is essential to have forward-looking data in real time to adjust the care offer and better understand the impact of Covid-19 on the patient populations treated.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of several marketed commercial or prototype test kits for antibody to SARS-CoV-2. The focus will be on rapid-format, point-of-care antibody test kits that detect both IgM and IgG antibodies to recombinant viral proteins. Note: No voluntary enrolment into this study will be conducted; all testing is to be conducted anonymously.

The Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome CoronaVirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) has been identified in Wuhan, China, which causes severe pulmonary complications and flu syndrome, which has spread rapidly to all continents. Approximately 25% of hospitalized patients require treatment in intensive care units and 10% require mechanical ventilation. The diagnosis is made by the molecular polymerase chain reaction test. However, diagnostic tests are limited. The clinical care of the patient with COVID-19 is similar to that of patients with severe infectious respiratory complications, consisting of support and oxygen supplementation. Several medications have been tested as remdesivir, a pro-drug nucleoside, which acts by inhibiting viral RNA transcription, although a recently published study has shown no benefit. China recently approved the use of favipiravir, an antiviral used for influenza, as an experimental therapy for COVID-19. Hydroxychloroquine is a drug with great potential treatment, as it can inhibit the pH-dependent steps of replication of various viruses, with a potent effect on SARS-CoV infection and spread. In this way, the present study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of the hydroxychloroquine in patients with symptomatic SARS-Cov2.
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.
The purpose of this study is to find out if estrogen, a female sex hormone, given as a patch placed on skin of COVID19 positive or presumptive positive patients for 7 days can reduce the severity of COVID19 symptoms compared to regular care. This study has two study groups. One group will receive the study drug, a single-use Climara 25cm2 estrogen patch. The other group will receive standard of care. Participants will be asked questions about their symptoms for up 6 times in up to 45 days.
