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.

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

A number of clinical features suggest the possibility of dysautonomia in patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2). At the same time, there is now strong experimental evidence that SARS-CoV-2 can cross the blood-brain barrier, probably via the olfactory nerves, and reach the brain stem, which is located in close proximity. Damage to the brainstem nuclei could explain the suspected dysautonomic episodes, but also the severity of respiratory distress in infected patients, and the difficulty of ventilatory withdrawal encountered in resuscitation, potentially through damage to the ventilation control and regulation centers located in the brainstem. The objective of this study is to record the long term variability in heart rate, reflecting autonomic balance, of patients screened positive for SARS-CoV-2 throughout their stay in conventional care units at the Saint-Etienne University Hospital, in order to see whether there is an autonomic imbalance at screening, whether the worsening of the autonomic imbalance precedes the worsening of the clinical condition, and how quickly the expected correction of the autonomic imbalance follows or precedes that of the disease.

SARS-CoV-2 belong to beta-coronavirus family and its transmission route and symptoms follow those of all community-acquired coronaviruses. The main difference of the novel Coronavirus is the higher mortality rate, that is around 3%. Death rate is over 1% only for patients over 50 years old, whereas until 40 years old is under 0,4%. No fatalities are declared among children under 10 years old to date. Death rate is almost double for male rather than female. This distribution of mortality rate according to age of infected patients could be only partially ascribed to other comorbidities in addition to great age. In fact, patients with no pre-existing conditions have however a case fatality rate of 0,9%. The almost null rate of severe illness in children and generally in patients younger than 40 years old is quite un-explicable. Infant, children and young people could be infected but infection is rapidly self-limited or without symptoms. Older patients undergo severe lung injury as consequence of an immune response that is late in coming. Possible explanation of these phenomena could be something, which assure ability to prompt response to SARS-CoV-2 in younger people independently from the novelty of the virus itself. It would seem to be that younger people are already sensitized to the antigens of the virus without a previous contact. This immunity is not really specific, but "partially specific" for many antigens of the virus, however able to limit the infection in the organism. Something stimulated the immune system and it scattered immunity against more and more antigens present. Children are the age group mostly exposed to all community-circulating viruses. This immunity is not persistent but progressively fade out. It protects from the age of two, when the hypothetical stimulation occurs, to the fifth decade because of its slow decrease. The only external stimulation, which healthy people receive are vaccines. All vaccinations and especially tetanic, diphtheria toxoids and inactivated bacteria as pertussis could stimulate immune system. They develop the specific immunity but generate also a sprouting immunity against antigens in transit, as coronaviruses and other community-circulating viruses. The developed immunity gives some protection against multiple viral infection for years until the natural fade out. After the fifth decade, that immunity is slower to be recall and reactivated. Additionally, transplant recipients and HIV infected patients, which have an immune system inhibited, unexpectedly, do not seem to suffer the worst complications of SARS-CoV-2 infection. An immune system imbalance could be play a pivotal role during the reaction to the virus, limiting destructive consequences of excessive inflammation. According to the medical hypothesis on which the protocol is based on, young people could benefit from a functional adaptation of innate immune cells induced through epigenetic reprogramming and, especially, a pre-existing "partially specific" immunity to the community viruses caused by "bystander effect" of preceding vaccinations. In this study, we will explore the main differences existing among patients infected by SARS-CoV-2 who experience the illness at different degree of severity. We suppose to recognize different populations of patients, each one with a specific immunological pattern. It could differ in terms of cytokines, soluble factors serum level and immune cells activity both of the innate compartment and of the acquired one. The proof of a role of these immunological phenomena in the pathogenesis of Covid-19 are bases for implementation of therapeutic immunomodulatory treatments. In addition, the definition of an immunological risk profile could tailor established therapies to each kind of patient.

At present, there are no specific treatments for COVID-19. WHO recommends four treatments for COVID 19 with drugs i.eRemdesivir, Lopinavir/ ritonavir, Lopinavir/ ritonavir with interferon beta -1a, and chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine. Currently, there are several ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments. Recently, LeonCaly reported that Ivermectin, an FDA-approved anti-parasitic previously shown to have broad-spectrum anti-viral activity in vitro, is an inhibitor of the causative virus (SARS-CoV-2), with a single addition to Vero-hSLAM cells 2 hours post infection with SARSCoV-2 able to effect about 5000-fold reduction in viral RNA at 48 h. Ivermectin therefore warrant further investigation for possible benefits in humans. The study rationale is to understand the effect of the drug on eradication of virus.
The aim of this study is to determine the risk factors for development of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and to identify the prognostic factors of VAP among Coronavirus Disease 2019 (CoViD-19) patients. We hypothesized that CoViD-19 serves as a high risk factor for the development of VAP and it affects clinical outcome measures negatively.

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.

No optimal antiviral intervention has been yet validated to treat COVID-19 disease. Comorbidities, such as older age, obesity, diabetes, history of cardiovascular diseases are associated with poor prognosis. This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of two experimental antiviral treatments, compared to standard of care (SOC), to prevent clinical worsening, hospitalization or death at day 14 in adults with documented SARS-CoV-2 infection, asymptomatic or with symptoms lasting less than 8 days, and associated comorbidities without any severity criteria of the disease at inclusion. Participants will be randomized to receive SOC alone or SOC + hydroxychloroquine 200 mg three times a day during 10 days or SOC + association of niclosamide 2 g at J1 then 500 mg two times a day with diltiazem 60 mg three times a day during 10 days. Efficacy and tolerance of each treatments will be compared across the three treatment groups during the 28 days of follow-up.
