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.
To search this directory, simply type a drug name, condition, company name, location, or other term of your choice into the search bar and click SEARCH. For broadest results, type the terms without quotation marks; to narrow your search to an exact match, put your terms in quotation marks (e.g., “acute respiratory distress syndrome” or “ARDS”). You may opt to further streamline your search by using the Status of the study and Intervention Type options. Simply click one or more of those boxes to refine your search.Displaying 90 of 3768

A brief online survey to be completed by clinical therapists.

Lung surfactant is present in the lungs. It covers the alveolar surface where it reduces the work of breathing and prevents the lungs from collapsing. In some respiratory diseases and in patients that require ventilation this substance does not function normally. This study will introduce surfactant to the patients lungs via the COVSurf Drug Delivery System

Some preliminary epidemiological research conduct in China in health workers involved in the care of Covid-19 patients has shown high rates of depression (>50%), generalized anxiety disorder (>44%), insomnia (>36%) and stress symptoms (>73%), which negatively impact their well-being as well as their ability to work effectively . These rates were observed during the epidemic peak, but they can also have a long-term mental health effect, both individually, but also in a systemic manner , similar to what has been reported relative to the SARS-CoV-1 . Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is recognized as an effective treatment for stress-reduction, as well as for the prevention of multiple mental health problems in at-risk individuals . Moreover, CBT has been found to be effective in brief online formats , which could make it feasible during the current Covid-19 epidemic. To our knowledge, there are no online CBT programmes targeting stress problems in health workers involved in the care of patients during the current epidemic context. The aim of our study is to evaluate the efficacy of the online CBT programme we have developped to specifically address immediate perceived stress in health workers, as well as the prevention of mental health problems at 3- and 6-months follow-up

In early December 2019, cases of pneumonia of unknown origin were identified in Wuhan, China. The causative virus was called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently declared coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) a public health emergency of international concern. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the management of COVID-19 has focused primarily on infection prevention, detection and patient monitoring. However, there is no vaccine or specific treatment for SARS-CoV-2 due to the lack of evidence. Treatment options currently include broad-spectrum antiviral drugs but the efficacy and safety of these drugs is still unknown. Convalescent plasma has previously been used to treat various outbreaks of other respiratory infections; however, it has not been shown to be effective in all the diseases studied. Therefore, clinical trials are required to demonstrate its safety and efficacy in patients with VIDOC-19. The present work seeks to determine the mortality from any cause up to 14 days after plasma randomization of patients cured of COVID-19 compared to the Best Available Therapy in subjects with SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia. This is a 2:1 randomized, double-blind, single-center, phase 2, controlled clinical trial (plasma: best available therapy) for the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia.

Systemic medical ozone has proved to help in several viral diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and chronic inflammation process. The investigators are sure that its application to COVID-19 patients, as an adjuvant therapy, will improve the health status of these individuals.

A novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 HAS arose in 2019 in Wuhan, China. Beside the classical semiology of this infection, numerous patients described olfactory and teste disorders. These symptoms are not described in this coronavirus, neurotropism of coronaviridae has been documented before. The aim of the study is to evaluate prevalence of anosmia and dysgeusia (olfactory and taste disorders) in coronavirus diagnosed patients and compare with different clinical conditions. The second endpoint is to evaluate the duration of these symptoms in order to better understand the semiology of this infection.

Hydroxychloroquine has been approved by FDA as one of the treatment options for COVID 19.Healthcare personnel are amongst those at highest risk to contract the disease. Several health authorities are now recommending the use of hydroxychloroquine as pre-exposure prophylaxis is in health care personnel. Several studies are on going in this context. However there is a controversy regarding the dosage regimen. This drug has a half life of 22.4 days. In this study we will be comparing three different doses of Hydroxychloroquine and additionally have a control group in order to determine the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine as pre- exposure prophylaxis in healthcare personnel in various doses.

In this study, investigators will determine whether the early addition of HT-CCP to standard treatment improves the clinical outcome (as assessed by the Modified WHO Ordinal Scale) of patients with COVID-19 who are hospitalized but not yet in moderate or severe ARDS.

Observational cohort study aiming at comparing the incidence of ventilator-associated lower respiratory tract infections between COVID-19 patients and two control groups: one with influenza pneumonia and the other with no viral pneumonia.

LIINC is a study of volunteers who were previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 (also known as novel coronavirus or COVID-19) who have recovered from acute infection. The study is designed to provide a specimen bank of samples with carefully characterized clinical data. LIINC specimens will be used to examine multiple questions involving the virologic, immunologic, and host factors involved in COVID-19, with a focus on understanding variability in the long-term immune response between individuals.
