  • ACTIV-2: A Study for Outpatients With COVID-19

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Drug studies often look at the effect one or two drugs have on a medical condition, and involve one company. There is currently an urgent need for one study to efficiently test multiple drugs from more than one company, in people who have tested positive for COVID-19 but who do not currently need hospitalization. This could help prevent disease progression to more serious symptoms and complications, and spread of COVID-19 in the community. This study looks at the safety and effectiveness of different drugs in treating COVID-19 in outpatients. In Phase II, participants in the study will be treated with either a study drug or with placebo. In protocol version 7.0, participants in Phase III of the study will be treated with either a study drug or active comparator drug. Participants assigned to the bamlanivimab agent/placebo arm and will have 28 days of intensive follow-up following study drug administration, followed by limited follow-up through 24 weeks in phase II and in phase III. All other investigational agents and their corresponding placebo arms will involve 28 days of intensive follow-up, followed by limited follow-up through 72 weeks in phase II and phase III. Additional study visits may be required, depending on the agent.

  • Immune Response to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Vaccines in Patients With Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia or Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study evaluates the immune response to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) vaccines in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL). CLL and SLL are types of blood cancer that begin in cells of the immune system. CLL/SLL and the medications used to treat these conditions may change the way vaccines work in a patient's body. The purpose of this study is to find out if patients with CLL/SLL make antibodies, or have an immune response, to the SARS-CoV-2 vaccines. Information gained from this study may help researchers better understand how effective the vaccines work in preventing COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) in patients with CLL and SLL.

  • Inhaled ZYESAMI™ (Aviptadil Acetate) for the Treatment of Severe COVID-19

    open to eligible people ages 18-85

    Brief Summary: SARS-CoV-2 virus infection is known to cause Lung Injury that begins as dyspnea and exercise intolerance, but may rapidly progress to Critical COVID-19 with Respiratory Failure and the need for noninvasive or mechanical ventilation. Mortality rates as high as 80% have been reported among those who require mechanical ventilation, despite best available intensive care. Patients with severe COVID-19 by FDA definition who have not developed respiratory failure be treated with nebulized ZYESAMI™ (aviptadil acetate, a synthetic version of Vasoactive Intestinal Polypeptide (VIP)) 100 μg 3x daily plus Standard of Care vs. placebo + Standard of Care using an FDA 501(k) cleared mesh nebulizer. The primary outcome will be progression in severity of COVID-19 (i.e. critical OR severe progressing to critical) over 28 days. Secondary outcomes will include blood oxygenation as measured by pulse oximetry, dyspnea, exercise tolerance, and levels of TNFα IL-6 and other cytokines.

  • Isavuconazole for the Prevention of COVID-19-associated Pulmonary Aspergillosis

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The objective of this study is to evaluate whether antifungal prophylaxis with isavuconazole can reduce the incidence of SARS-CoV-2-associated invasive aspergillosis in patients in the ICU (intensive care unit) with severe COVID-19 infection. The investigators will perform an interventional, double-blinded, randomized-controlled, multi-center study in patients with severe COVID-19 infection admitted to the ICU. Patients will be randomized to the isavuconazole prophylaxis plus standard of care (SOC) group or the placebo plus SOC group. Participants will receive isavuconazole or placebo for up to 28 days or until discharge from the hospital (whichever occurs first).

  • NCI COVID-19 in Cancer Patients, NCCAPS Study

    open to all eligible people

    This study collects blood samples, medical information, and medical images from patients who are being treated for cancer and have a positive test for SARS CoV-2, the new coronavirus that causes the disease called COVID-19. Collecting blood samples, medical information, and medical images may help researchers determine how COVID-19 affects the outcomes of patients undergoing cancer treatment and how having cancer affects COVID-19.

Part 1 is a Phase 2 exploratory Proof of Concept (PoC) study to provide preliminary data on the activity, safety and tolerability of BIO101 in the target population. Part 2 is a phase 3 pivotal randomized study to provide further evidence of safety and efficacy of BIO101 after 28 days of double-blind dosing. BIO101 is the investigational new drug that activates the Mas receptor (MasR) through the protective arm of the Renin Angiotensin System (RAS).

  • The Provider Insurance Revenue Study in Healthcare Providers in the United States of America

    open to all eligible people

    The investigators are enrolling 100 healthcare Provider volunteers (n=100) from across the United States to help to evaluate and document the financial impact of COVID-19 on Physicians and other healthcare Providers. This investigation will compare individual Physician revenues before and after the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic. The investigators expect to be able to differentiate between revenues lost due to the COVID-19-driven business recession and revenues lost due to the manipulation of reimbursement processes by insurance companies. The inextricable linkage between Payer and Physician revenues suggests that Payer revenues are higher at the direct expense of Physicians, since both streams come from the same sources of funding. The secondary objective is aimed at revealing the methods Payers use to retain more money.

  • Adaptive COVID-19 Treatment Trial 4 (ACTT-4)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    ACTT-4 will evaluate the combination of baricitinib and remdesivir compared to dexamethasone and remdesivir. Subjects will be assessed daily while hospitalized. If the subjects are discharged from the hospital, they will have a study visit at Days 15, 22, and 29. For discharged subjects, it is preferred that the Day 15 and 29 visits are in person to obtain safety laboratory tests, oropharyngeal (OP) swabs, plasma (Day 29), and serum for secondary research as well as clinical outcome data. However, if infection control or other restrictions limit the ability of the subject to return to the clinic, these visits may be conducted by phone, and only clinical data will be obtained. The Day 22 visit does not have laboratory tests or collection of samples and is conducted by phone. The primary objective is to evaluate the clinical efficacy of baricitinib + remdesivir versus dexamethasone + remdesivir as assessed by the mechanical ventilation free survival by Day 29.
