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 Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is causing a global pandemic with high morbidity and mortality among adults and mainly the elderly. Children seem to be little or not affected by this infection. It is estimated that children could be asymptomatic or pauci-symptomatic carriers and thus be vectors of the disease. This is why measures to close schools and confine populations have been decreed in a large number of countries, including France. However, there are only a few data on the prevalence of COVID19 disease in children. The deconfinement strategy depends on data on the prevalence of the disease, especially in children. Investigators propose to evaluate the incidence of Covid-19 in preschool and elementary schools children in the city of Nice (South of France) during the pandemic period using a local prospective study of 914 children

The present study aims to assess the determinants of health-related quality of life and long-term outcomes among survivors of hospitalization for Covid-19 in Brazil. The investigators will conduct a multicenter prospective cohort study nested in randomized clinical trials (coalition Covid-19 Brazil initiative) originally designed to assess the effects of specific Covid-19 treatments. Adult survivors of hospitalization due to proven or suspected SARS-CoV-2 infection will be followed up for a period of one year by means of structured telephone interviews. The primary outcome is one-year health-related quality of life assessed by the EQ-5D-3L. Secondary outcomes include all-cause mortality, rehospitalizations, return to work or study, physical functional status assessed by the Lawton & Brody Instrumental Activities of Daily Living Scale, dyspnea assessed by the modified medical research council dyspnea scale, need of long-term ventilatory support, symptoms of anxiety and depression assessed by the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder assessed by the Impact of Event Scale-revised. Four sets of variables (1-demographic characteristics, 2-pre-morbid state of health, 3-characteristics of acute illness, 4- specific Covid-19 treatments received, and 5-time-updated post-discharge variables (HRQL, physical functional status and symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD) will be assessed as potential risk factors for health-related quality of life and secondary outcomes.

Extra Vascular Lung Water and Pulmonary Permeability in Critically Ill Patients With SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a syndromic definition of an acute lung injury with alteration of biomechanics (lower respiratory system compliance) mostly associated with increased lesional edema. Increase in Pulmonary Vascular Permeability Index (PVPI) accompanied with accumulation of excess Extravascular Lung Water (EVLW) is the hallmark of ARDS. In routine clinical practice, the investigators measure the EVLW and PVPI in ARDS patients, as suggested by expert's recommendations, using a transpulmonary thermodilution (TPTD) technique. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a newly recognized illness that has spread rapidly throughout Wuhan (Hubei province) to other provinces in China and around the world. Most critically ill patients with SARS-CoV-2 will present the criteria for the definition of ARDS. However, many of these patients have a particular form of ARDS with severe hypoxemia often associated with near normal respiratory system compliance. This combination is almost never seen in severe ARDS. Thus other mechanisms (including probably vascular mechanisms), that are still poorly described, have to be involved in SARS-CoV-2. EVLW and PVPI have never been assessed in SARS-CoV-2 mechanically ventilated patients. The aim of this study is to evaluate these two parameters in order to best characterize and understand the mechanisms related to SARS-CoV-2. Based on observation of several cases in intensive care units (ICU), the investigators hypothesize that there are following different SARS-CoV-2 patterns: 1. Nearly normal compliance, low lung recruitability, normal EVLW and low PVPI. 2. Low compliance due to increased edema, high lung recruitability, high EVLW and high PVPI.
OSCAR (Otilimab in Severe COVID-19 Related Disease) is a multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial to assess the efficacy and safety of otilimab for the treatment of severe pulmonary COVID-19 related disease. Otilimab is a human monoclonal anti-granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) antibody that has not previously been tested in participants with severe pulmonary COVID-19 related disease. The aim of this study is to evaluate the benefit-risk of a single infusion of otilimab in the treatment of participants with severe COVID-19 related pulmonary disease. The study population will consist of hospitalized participants with new onset hypoxia requiring significant oxygen support or requiring early invasive mechanical ventilation (less than or equal to [<=] 48 hours before dosing). Participants will be randomized to receive a single intravenous (IV) infusion of otilimab or placebo, in addition to standard of care.

. Coronavirus (SARS-CoV2) appeared first in China late 2019 and caused an acute respiratory disease referred to as Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). SARS-CoV2 is considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) as pandemic and affected nations worldwide, leading to close borders and major economical struggle. The ongoing viral threat due to the lack of effective therapies and vaccination might prolonged this economical challenge and many businesses will face huge financial constraints leading to laying off labors, an increase in the unemployment rate, and major companies' bankruptcies. However, returning to normal business operations should be done with a safety focus and not be at the cost of global health and wellbeing. Immunity against COVID-19 is going to be a major determinant for a future safe work environment and will reduce the viral infection risk. Therefore, PI is suggesting that if an employee has antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 confirmed by serological testing, he or she could go back to work safely with taking the necessary precautions.

Low-dose radiotherapy treatment delivered to both lungs in patients with immune-related pneumonia following COVID-19 infection is backed up by biological and clinical bases that justify its use as a possible therapeutic option in these patients. This is a preliminary exploratory study (non-pharmacological interventional) to evaluate the feasibility and tolerability of low-dose radiotherapy treatment of SARS-Cov-2 immune-mediated pneumonia, for the subsequent implementation of a phase II study.This is a preliminary, monocentric, single-arm, interventional, non-pharmacological exploratory study. All enrolled patients will be treated with low-dose radiotherapy. Participants will undergo irradiation of the lungs, administered in a single fraction at the average prescription dose of 0.7 Gy (further details in the dedicated section).

This project is a randomised trial in order to determine if "gamification" can result in behaviour change for healthcare workers in the residential aged care setting. The app is for Age Care and care workers at the front line who are working to protect those most vulnerable to COVID-19. There are 2 groups in this trial on group will receive current and accurate information from an app. The other group will receives the app with the addition of a gamification competent, this will include rewarding experiences for staff doing safety behaviours and wellbeing behaviours. The purpose of the gamification is to create a calming and reassuring experience that injects positivity and joy where possible during this stressful time.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has caused delays in initial or follow-up encounters between surgical patients and physicians. While this delay allows for resource allocation to those most severely affected by the pandemic, surgeons are faced with potential important delays in diagnosis and the expanding backlog of elective cases and initial evaluations. This project will assess surgeon and patient telemedicine perspectives. Pre-pandemic views on telemedicine among a cohort of surgeons will be obtained and compared to views at 3 months from the peak of the pandemic. Patients will be surveyed following telemedicine appointments with an anonymous questionnaire to learn about patient receptiveness to telemedicine. Barriers to implementation will be addressed throughout the duration of the study.
