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.

This single-center prospective observational study will examine immune responses to to SARS-CoV-2 and how they correlate with its virological characteristics and clinical manifestations in infected patients. Household contacts will also be included so that early immune responses and viral kinetics can be captured. Patients and contacts will be followed for 8 and 2 weeks, respectively. The study will include a maximum of 250 participants.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a pandemic infection caused by a virus called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Because SARS-CoV-2 is known to require the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE-2) receptor for uptake into the human body, there have been questions about whether medications that upregulate ACE-2 receptors might increase the risk of infection and subsequent complications. One such group of medications are anti-hypertensives that block the renin-angiotensin system, including both angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARB). Both ACEi and ARB are widely used for the treatment of hypertension. Early reports from China and Italy suggest that many of those who die from COVID-19 have a coexisting history of hypertension. Consequently, there have been questions raised as to whether these 2 types of blood pressure medication might increase the risk of death among patients with COVID-19. However, it is well known that the prevalence of hypertension increases linearly with age. Therefore, it is possible that the high prevalence of hypertension and ACEi/ARB use among persons who die from COVID-19 is simply confounded by age (older people are at risk of both a history of hypertension and dying from COVID-19). Whether these commonly prescribed blood pressure medications increase the risk of COVID-19 or not remains unanswered. Statements from professional cardiology societies on both sides of the Atlantic have called for urgent research into this question. Our study aims to randomize patients with primary (essential) hypertension who are already taking ACEi/ARB to either switch to an alternative BP medication or continue with the ACEi/ARB that they have already been prescribed. Adults with compelling indications for ACEi/ARB will not be enrolled.

Phase IV study to evaluate the effectiveness of additional inhaled sargramostim (GM-CSF) versus standard of care on blood oxygenation in patients with COVID-19 coronavirus infection and acute hypoxic respiratory failure.

Study Objective: 1. To test if post-exposure prophylaxis with hydroxychloroquine can prevent symptomatic COVID-19 disease after known exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. 2. To test if early preemptive hydroxychloroquine therapy can prevent disease progression in persons with known symptomatic COVID-19 disease, decreasing hospitalizations and symptom severity.

It is planned to include patients over 18 years of age of both sexes, admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of Clinical Hospital Centre Split for respiratory insufficiency caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 in need of invasive mechanical ventilation. The patients will be divided into four groups. Group 1 will receive N-acetylcysteine inhalation, Group 2 will receive inhalation with a 5% sodium chloride solution, and Group 3 will receive inhalation of 8.4% sodium bicarbonate, group 4 is a control group and will not routinely receive inhaled mucolytics preventively. All inhalations will be given twice a day 12 hours apart. The first inhalation will be included within 12 hours of the patient being enrolled in the Intensive Care Unit. Patients will be randomized according to the type of inhalation they will receive, randomization will be done by all researchers through the random.org website, and the inhalation will be given by a nurse according to the agreed protocol. RESEARCH GOALS The aim of this study is to determine whether there is a difference in the frequency and duration of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and whether there is a difference in the number of days spent on mechanical ventilation and in mortality in these four groups of patients. Hypothesis Coronavirus disease 2019 patients on invasive mechanical ventilation and preventive sodium bicarbonate inhalation will have a lower incidence of ventilator-associated pneumonia and fewer days spent on invasive mechanical ventilation than patients inhaled with N-acetylcysteine, 5% saline, or patients without preventive inhalation.

European countries faced another wave of the SARS-CoV2 pandemic, which has led to a second lockdown in France in November 2020 in order to avoid overwhelming health services. To prevent or reduce another wave, the strategy calls for vaccination, maintaining barrier measures and testing and isolating infected persons in order to break the cycles of infection. The latter objective is made difficult by the existence of asymptomatic carriers or symptomatic carriers that have very few symptoms and that aren't tested. Identification of these carriers in the general population is usually based on a search for close contact persons from those who were tested positive or from identified clusters. Experiments of mass testing are being carried out or were carried out, for example in Liverpool or Slovakia but, in order for them to be effective, they must be repeated, which limits feasibility. Another strategy of wide screening in the general population to identify asymptomatic persons is to offer a systematic screening during medical consultations and particularly in the emergency departments (ED). This strategy grants access to the entire population attending health facilities, including persons with lower income. This strategy can be conducted continuously in order to: 1) contribute to controlling the epidemic by identifying and isolating asymptomatic persons and their close contacts; 2) provide an observatory on the evolution of viral circulation in the general population. To the best the knowledge, this strategy has not been evaluated and will be tested it in 18 emergency departments in the Paris Metropolitan area, one of the most SARS-CoV2 affected regions. The aim is to evaluate the benefit of a systematic offer of SARS-Cov2 screening by rapid testing (molecular multiplex PCR/ RT-LAMP) to identify infected persons, associated with the usual practice of the EDs (intervention strategy) compared to a period based on usual practice of the EDs (control strategy) The strategies will be compared during two periods following a cluster-randomized two-period crossover design. During intervention periods, nurses will suggest performing a SARS-CoV2 test to patients using a PCR multiplex for symptomatic patients and a RT-LAMP for asymptomatic patients.
The purpose of this research is to determine if CGM (continuous glucose monitors) used in the hospital in patients with COVID-19 and diabetes treated with insulin will be as accurate as POC (point of care) glucose monitors. Also if found to be accurate, CGM reading data will be used together with POC glucometers to dose insulin therapy.
The objective of this trial is to evaluate the effect of the consumption of a probiotic strain on the incidence and severity of COVID-19 in the internal elderly population in a residence for the elderly.
