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 4298 of 4298
At present, there is no specific and effective antiviral therapy.In this study, an open, prospective/retrospective, randomized controlled cohort study was designed to compare the efficacy of three antiviral drugs in the treatment of 2019-nCoV pneumonia by studying the efficacy of abidol hydrochloride, oseltamivir and lopinavir/ritonavir in the treatment of 2019-nCoV viral pneumonia, and to explore effective antiviral drugs for new coronavirus. To provide reliable evidence-based medicine basis for the treatment of viral pneumonia caused by new coronavirus infection.
At present, there is no specific and effective antiviral therapy.In this study, an open, prospective/retrospective, randomized controlled cohort study was designed to compare the efficacy of two therapeutic schemes(abidol hydrochloride,abidol hydrochloride combined with interferon atomization)in the treatment of 2019-nCoV viral pneumonia, so as to provide reliable evidence-based medicine for the treatment of viral pneumonia caused by 2019-nCoV.

The "COVID-19 infection self-test and alert system" (hereinafter referred to as "COVID-19 self-test applet") jointly developed by Beijing Tsinghua Changgung Hospital, Institute for precision medicine, artificial intelligence of Tsinghua University was launched on February 1，2020. Residents , according to their actual healthy situation, after answering questions online, the system will conduct intelligent analysis, make disease risk assessment and give healthcare and medical guidance. Based on the Internet population survey, and referring to the diagnosis and screening standards of the National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China, investigators carried out the mobile applet of Internet survey and registry study for the Internet accessible identifiable population, so as to screen the suspected population and guide the medical treatment.

Cardiovascular events occurring after 2019-nCoV outbreak in Jinan were prospectively assessed by emergency physicians. We compared those events with events that occurred during the past 3 months and the same months of the last year.

In late December 2019, several local health facilities reported clusters of patients with pneumonia of unknown cause that were epidemiologically linked to a seafood and wet animal wholesale market in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. It is now confirmed that the etiology of this outbreak is a novel coronavirus, namely, 2019-nCoV. Of critical importance is rapid and simple diagnostic method to be used in clinical settings to timely inform and refine strategies that can prevent, control, and stop the spread of 2019-nCoV. Recombinase aided amplification (RAA) assay is a novel isothermal nucleic acid amplification technique in recent years, which has a variety of the advantages including high specificity and sensitivity, rapid detection (30 min), low cost, low equipment requirements and simple operation. The has successfully detected a variety of pathogens using this technique. To develop a RAA assay for 2019-nCoV with the advantages of high speed, simple operation and low cost, and overcomes the shortcomings of the existing molecular detection methods. The investigators established a real time reverse-transcription RAA (RT-RAA) assay for detection of 2019-nCoV. This assay was performed at 42°C within 30min using a portable real-time fluorescence detector, Recombinant plasmids containing conserved ORF1ab genes was used to analyze the specificity and sensitivity. Clinical specimens from patients who were suspected of being infected with 2019-nCoV were used to evaluate the performance of the assay. In parallel, The investigators also used the commercial RT-qPCR assay kit for 2019-nCoV as a reference.

Lower Respiratory Tract infections are a common cause of admission to the intensive care unit. Children routinely receive antibiotics until the tests confirm whether the infection is bacterial or viral. The exclusion of bacterial infection may take 48 hours or longer for culture tests on biological samples to be completed. In many cases, the results may be inconclusive or negative if the patient has already received antibiotics prior to the sample being taken. A rapid assay to detect the most likely cause of infection could improve the speed with which antibiotic therapy is rationalised or curtailed. This study aims to assess whether a new genetic testing kit which can identify the presence of bacteria and viruses within hours rather than days is a feasible tool in improving antibiotic prescribing and rationalisation of therapy in critically ill children with suspected lower respiratory tract infection.

The purpose of this pilot study is to assess the feasibility of implementing a home blood pressure self-management program in a population of recent stroke survivors in the Washington, D.C. area. The investigators hypothesize that hypertensive stroke survivors in the Washington, DC area who participate in the Home Blood Pressure Monitoring program will have a greater reduction in mean systolic blood pressure (SBP) from baseline to 3 months, as measured by automated office blood pressure (AOBP), as compared to usual care.
