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.

COVID19 pandemic currently represents a public health emergency. Based on current data, 15% of the affected individuals will develop a severe form of the disease requiring admission to hospital and respiratory support. Data show that age and cardiovascular pre-existing comorbidities predict a poorer outcome. Some evidence suggests that a subset of patients with poorer outcome present with a cytokine mediated inflammatory response and with a secondary HLH like clinical phenotype. No data are so far available with regard to the risk of severe COVID19 disease in the post stem cell transplantation setting. Recipients of allogeneic stem cell transplantation are by definition immunologically dysregulated and could potentially present with a unique immune-inflammatory response to COVID 19 infection. Moreover, the immunosuppression used to prevent/treat GVHD may also impact clinical progression and it is possible that because of their immunological defects, SCT patients could potentially have prolonged carriage of the virus and hence act as "super spreaders". The present study aims at documenting clinical and biological characteristics, including immunological profiling, of allogeneic stem cell transplant recipients presenting with severe COVID 19 infection and its impact on patients survival. This work may provide the scientific basis for targeted therapy with biological agents in this patient group.

The current sars-cov-2 epidemic is responsible for severe respiratory infections leading to end-of-life situations. Dexmedetomidine may be indicated in mild to moderate sedation in palliative patients, due to its pharmacological characteristics. The hypothesis of this study is that Dexmedetomidine would allow effective and safe light sedation in patients with respiratory failure in palliative situations suffering from Covid-19 infection.

Since end of December, a new coronavirus, close to the 2002 SARS coronavirus, cause serious pneumonias throughout world. There is currently no strong evidence of an efficient specific treatment. Hydroxychloroquine is an old chloroquine-derived drug, prescribed for auto-immune disorders. It has shown efficacy against Sars-CoV-2 in vitro. Some studies showed that Hydroxychloroquine might improve the clinical status of Sars-CoV-2 infected patients. Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic, with immunomodulatory properties. Adding Azithromycin to a hydroxychloroquine-based treatment showed an apparent accelerated viral clearance in infected patients. This study wants to evaluate the clinical impact of adding Azithromycin to Hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of Sars-CoV-2 pneumonia

Double blinded randomized clinical trial designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of hydroxychloroquine combined with azithromycin compared to hydroxychloroquine monotherapy in patients hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 pneumonia.

The aim of this study is to assess the virus RNA, and miRNA levels related to viral infection, and inflammatory response in tears of hospitalized patients with a diagnosis of COVID-19 with and without conjunctivitis and to correlate them with clinical condition. Tears will be collected by using Schirmer Test I, a non invasive painless test which can be performed at the patient's bed. Tears will be collected on the graduated paper strips pulling the lower lid gently downward for 5 minutes. Following, the strip will be placed in a 2.0 mL Eppendorf tube and stored at −80◦C (or - 20°C)
Hackensack Meridian Health
The Hackensack Meridian Health Universal Observational COVID-19, a descriptive observational database, is a multi-center initiative collecting data throughout the Hackensack Meridian Health Network (HMH). HMH utilizes the EPIC system at most of the facilities, which will serve as the primary data source. The database will be designed within the REDCap system. A de-identified dataset will be sent to COTA for primary statistical analysis as requested by the research teams.

The Investigators propose to set up a preventive trial of infection in hospital workers at risk of coronavirus infection by comparing the rate of SARS-Cov-2 infection in a population of negative SARS-Cov-2 hospital workers receiving preventively azithromycin, hydroxychloroquine or a Placebo

Why is the research needed? The pandemic known as COVID-19 is now spreading across the world with currently (April 10, 2020) more than 1 115 530 active cases and 96 791 deaths. In most affected countries the current goal is to 'flatten the curve' of the epidemic since there is no health care system that is able to treat an extremely high volume of patients all at once. There is a need for immediately applicable treatments for the patients at highest risk, which gains time until targeted therapies become available. A key feature in the pathomechanism of the disease is that the virus elicits an immunological over-reaction in the human body termed 'cytokine storm'. In susceptible patients this hyper-inflammation itself is a significant burden and may even inhibit the body to generate antibodies against the virus in adequate quantities. Therefore, identifying the subset of patients with excess cytokine response and supplementing them with convalescent plasma from recovered donors may be a life-saving treatment option. What is our study about? In light of recent promising data on plasma therapy in the treatment of COVID-19 and other viral epidemics, there is a need for better understanding the cytokine response to the virus in order to better characterize the target population for convalescent plasma therapy. Our hypothesis is that convalescent plasma transfusion from healthy donors who recovered from SARS CoV-2 is able to reduce the cytokine storm in addition to replenish the patient's own antibodies in the acutely infected phase of the disease. A plasmapheresis donation of 400ml will be performed in subjects who recovered from COVID-19 and who are otherwise eligible for plasma donation. The sample will be tested for anti-SARS CoV-2 neutralizing antibody titers and those that reach the level of 1:320 will be processed for transfusion at the Hungarian National Transfusion Service. Recipients will be COVID-19 patients requiring hospitalization regardless of the severity of the disease or other co-morbidities. A blood-type matched transfusion of 200 ml convalescent plasma will be infused in a single sitting through an iv. infusion of 4 hours. Recipients will be followed up at days 1, 3,7,12, 17, 28 for clinical symptoms, antibody levels and cytokine response.
