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.

The infectious disease COVID-19, caused by coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2), has been declared a pandemic and an international healthcare emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO). It has spread across the globe, overwhelming healthcare systems by causing high rates of critical illness. Mortality from COVID-19 exceeds 4%, with older people with comorbidities being extremely vulnerable. It is expected that between 50-80% of the world's population may contract SARS-CoV-2 over the next two years. It is expected that the outcomes will be potentially worse in Africa, because firstly, there is a limited workforce, and secondly there are limited intensive care facilities and critical care resources across Africa to provide sufficient care. It is important therefore to establish what resources, comorbidities and interventions are potentially associated with either mortality or survival in patients with COVID-19 who are referred for critical care in Africa. Rapid dissemination of these findings may help mitigate mortality from COVID-19 in critical care patients in Africa. These points provide the rationale for the African COVID-19 Critical Care Outcomes Study (ACCCOS).
The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has spread all around the world and testing has posed a challenge globally. Health care providers are highly exposed and are an important group to test. On top of these concerns, health care workers are also stressed by the needs on responders in the COVID-19 crisis. The investigators will look at different ways to measure how common COVID-19 is among health care workers, how common is the presence of antibodies by serological tests (also known as serostatus). The investigators will describe health worker mental and emotional well-being and their coping strategies in their institutional settings. Lastly, the investigators will describe how knowing serostatus can affect individuals' mental and emotional well-being and how to cope in the midst of the COVID-19 response. This will help to how to better test and help healthcare workers in the COVID-19 pandemic and prepare for possible future outbreaks.

The administration of Calcifediol in patients with COVID-19, will reduce the development of SARS and the worsening of the various phases of the syndrome. Reducing at least 25% in ICU admission and death from the process, reducing days of hospitalization, facilitating the recovery of the same, acting significantly and positively, in any of its phases throughout the natural history of illness. As a treatment with extensive experience of clinical use, safe, inexpensive, and potentially very effective, it will have a highly efficient cost-benefit impact on the prevention of SARS.

Electrocardiographic (ECG) evaluation of patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Cov-2) infection. The present study involves three different phases of evaluation of the ECG traces of hospitalized patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection. - Phase 1: it is proposed to collect and retrospectively analyze the ECGs of hospitalized patients with severe SARS-CoV-2 infection which led to invasive ventilation or patient death as a consequence and, if available, also possible troponin dosage; - Phase 2: aims to collect and analyze the ECGs of consecutive hospitalized patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection and evaluate their relationship with the course of the disease, cardiac involvement and prognosis; - Phase 3: it is proposed to repeat ECG and to carry out echocardiogram to patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection after 3 months from hospital discharge by simultaneously performing, if deemed clinically indicated, also cardiac magnetic resonance. In this phase, any evolutions of ECG alterations of the acute phase will be described and the relationship with cardiac involvement will be assessed.

The COVID-19 pandemic poses a major and imminent challenge for health care systems regarding patient triage and allocation of limited resources worldwide. The involved pathogenetic mechanisms as well as the clinical value of established and emerging biomarkers for early risk prediction are largely unknown. To fill these gaps in knowledge, investigators designed the prospective, interdisciplinary, observational, case-control "COronaVIrus surviVAl (COVIVA)" study platform, aiming to deliver an open-source platform to i) perform extensive clinical and biomarker phenotyping in COVID-19 suspects presenting to the emergency department (ED) as well as admitted to the intensive care unit, ii) compare clinical and biomarker profiles of COVID-19 patients with a control group, iii) derive and validate personalized risk prediction models for early clinical decision support, and iv) explore pathophysiological mechanisms including but not limited to inflammatory, immunological and cardiovascular pathways. Blood samples (serum) are routinely collected for bio banking both in cases and controls. Patients are followed 30 days after discharge. Personalized risk prediction models will be derived and validated based on advanced statistical models including machine-based learning incorporating a variety of clinical parameters and biomarker signatures (including digitally stored in-hospital data, e.g. imaging, ECG, ventilation parameters). Close cooperation with multiple other national and international COVID-19 cohorts is endorsed. The personalized risk prediction models from the COVIVA study will support clinicians in the most challenging process of limited resource allocation in a timely fashion. In addition, pathophysiological mechanisms and differences in mild and severe variants of COVID-19 as well as in the control group can be extensively studied in a multidisciplinary approach.
