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.

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. COVID-19 causes life threatening complications known as Cytokine Release Syndrome or Cytokine Storm and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. These complications are the main causes of death in this global pandemic. Over 1000 clinical trials are on-going worldwide to diagnose, treat, and improve the aggressive clinical course of COVID-19. The investigators propose the first, and so far, only gene therapy solution that has the potential to address this urgent unmet medical need. Rationale 1. There are striking similarities between the damaged lung environment of COVID-19 induced ARDS and the tumor microenvironment (exposed collagen from tissue destruction by invading tumor or by the virus-induced immune response, and presence of activated proliferative cells (cancer cells and tumor associated fibroblasts or activated T cells, macrophages and pulmonary fibroblasts in COVID-19); 2. DeltaRex-G is a disease-seeking retrovector encoding a cytocidal dominant negative human cyclin G1 as genetic payload). When injected intravenously, the DeltaRex-G nanoparticles has a navigational system that targets exposed collagenous proteins (XC proteins) in injured tissues (e.g. inflamed lung, kidney, etc.), thus increasing the effective drug concentration at the sites of injury, in the vicinity of activated/proliferative T cells evoked by COVID-19. Our hypothesis is that DeltaRex-G then enters the rapidly dividing T cells and kills them by arresting the G1cell division cycle, hence, reducing cytokine release and ARDS; 3. Intravenous DeltaRex-G has minimal systemic toxicity due to its navigational system (targeting properties) that limits the biodistribution of DeltaRex-G only to areas of injury where exposed collagenous (XC) proteins are abnormally found; and 4. DeltaRex-G is currently available in FDA approved "Right to Try" or Expanded Access Program for Stage 4 cancers for an intermediate size population. To gain this approval, FDA requires DeltaRex-G to have demonstrated safety and efficacy in early clinical trials.

The recent pandemic of the COVID-19 disease has caused a national health emergency due to its severity and the clinical and social consequences of the disease. Crude mortality in Spain is 9.2%. However, the causes of death of critically ill patients with COVID-19 are unknown. To date, no treatment has been shown to be effective for the 2019-SARS-CoV-2 infection is recommended. Supportive care and isolation are recommended for infected individuals. Currently, observational studies on critically ill patients with COVID-19 have small samples. The objective is to evaluate the incidence of mortality and morbidity in COVID-19 disease in this group of critically ill patients, as well as the risk factors associated with mortality and the effectiveness of the treatments used compassionately.

The investigators suspect that the current COVID-19 pandemic may be associated with a high level of unsuspected food insecurity among lower income Austin families who receive their health care at a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). Pediatricians will ask families about food insecurity as part of standard of care in order to assess if food insecurity has begun or worsened during the pandemic.

Robot Assisted Percutaneous Cardiovascular Intervention as a Strategy to Reduce or Risk of Intra-Procedure Contamination by COVID-19 and Other Respiratory Viruses
Percutaneous cardiovascular intervention procedures (e.g. coronary angioplasty, peripheral artery angioplasty) must be performed in person, requiring the physical presence of one or more medical, nursing and technical professionals. The control of catheters and interventional materials is performed manually, with the operator positioned next to the patient. This context results in potential for reciprocal exposure to exhaled air, both for the professionals involved and for the patient, with an inherent risk of aerial contamination. It is important to note that interventional procedures are often performed on an urgent or emergency basis (e.g. myocardial infarction), without the possibility of postponement or postponement. The recent robot-assisted cardiovascular intervention makes it possible to modify this scenario by allowing the procedure to be performed effectively and safely in a position far from the patient. In an environment with high potential for contamination, mainly related to the current pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus, may prove to be a tactic to expand hospital security. It is in this sense that the present pilot proposal is inserted, which, ultimately, aims to evaluate the potential of robotic intervention as a strategy to reduce exposure to exhaled air of patients and professionals during the intervention procedure.

Efficacy of Therapist Guided e-Therapy Versus Self-Help Therapy on Psychological Distress Among Individuals in Oman During COVID-19 Pandemic
Background: COVID-19 (Corona Virus Disease 2019) is a virulent infectious disease with an incubation period ranging between 2-14 days. This highly contagious disease is caused by Sars-Cov-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2). The number of people infected by COVID-19 has increased exponentially since January as a result of traveling and contact with COVID-19 infected individual. Initially, the seriousness of COVID-19 was not gauged properly until World Health Organization classified it as Pandemic type infectious disease and rapidly made plans actions to fight against it on 20 January, 2020. The uncertainty and low predictability of COVID-19 not only threaten people's physical health, but also affect people's mental health, especially in terms of emotions and cognition. As consequence of public emergency, with its economic health and social impacts, psychological repercussions among people are inevitable at the short and long term. Importance and justify the study: This study will assess the effectiveness of e therapy in treating anxiety and depression during a pandemic. This would be a novel way of providing therapy during crises Hypothesis: We hypothesize that compared to self-help email delivered therapy, the therapist guided e-Therapy is more efficacious in reducing the level of psychosocial stress among distressed individuals in Oman during COVID19. Objective: The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of six weeks therapist guided e-Therapy versus Self-help e-mail delivered therapy on Psychological distress among random sample of individuals live in Oman during COVID 19 pandemic. This study will recruit 60 participants from a list respondents to public survey who reported high levels of depression and anxiety, and randomize them to either therapist guided e-psychotherapy(intervention) or (control) self-help arms. Participants in the intervention arm will receive six sessions of therapist guided e therapy as described in the study schedule. Participants in the control arm will receive self-help psychotherapy contents similar to the intervention arm as detailed in the study schedule. Throughout the study, outcome and safety assessments will be conducted.

Studies performed after coronavirus epidemics (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus, SARS-CoV and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus, MERS-CoV) have shown a long-term impact on respiratory morbidity, musculoskeletal and psycho-social repercussions. Patients with SARS-CoV pneumonia had fibrotic pulmonary sequelae at 45 days (lower DLCO in 27.3% of cases and radiological lesions in 21.5% of cases). In the MERS-CoV pneumonia study, patients had radiological sequelae in 33% of cases and the 12-month evaluation showed persistence of radiological abnormalities in 23.7% of the cases despite an improvement in respiratory function. Clinical presentation and therapeutic management of severe SARS-CoV-2 infection are in part similar to those induced by SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV. Long-term respiratory complications are therefore expected.

In the context of the COVID19 pandemic and containment, chest CT is currently frequently performed on admission, looking for suggestive signs and basic abnormalities of COVID19 compatible viral pneumonitis pending confirmation of identification of viral RNA by reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction(PCR), with a reported sensitivity of 56-88% in the first few days, slightly higher than PCR (60%) (1). Nevertheless, currently established radiological abnormalities are not specific for COVID19 and the specificity of the chest CT is ~25% when PCR is used as a reference (1). Deconfinement and its consequences will complicate the triage of COVID patients and the role of the scanner, with the expected impact of a decrease in the prevalence of infection in the emergency department and an increase in the number of "all-round" patients, including patients with non-COVID viral infiltrates or pneumopathies. In addition, there are currently no imaging criteria to complement the clinical and biological data that can predict the progression of lung disease from the initial data.

The investigators are conducting a national COVID-19 prevalence survey on a sample of 3,000 inhabitants that were randomly selected from the Slovenian population. The sample is representative in age, gender, and geographical distribution. The main objective is to assess how many people in Slovenia have COVID-19 in April/May 2020 and how many were infected with SARS-CoV-2 previously. The investigators are using a direct detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in nasopharyngeal samples with validated two-target PCR-based commercial assay. For a serological response to the etiological agent, IgG and IgA anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies are measured in plasma samples using a validated commercial assay.
