There is one clinical trial.
No specific therapeutic agents or vaccines for COVID-19 are available. Several therapies, are under investigation, but the antiviral efficacy of these drugs is not yet known. The use of convalescent plasma was recommended as an empirical treatment during outbreaks of Ebola virus in 2014, and a protocol for treatment of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus with convalescent plasma was established in 2015. Accordingly, we hypothesized that use of convalescent plasma transfusion could be beneficial in patients infected with SARS-CoV-2. This is a multicenter prospective randomized clinical trial to evaluate safety and efficacy of early use of convalescent plasma in patients with SARS-CoV2 pneumonia. Primary endpoint will be the efficacy, evaluated as the need of invasive mechanical ventilation defined by PaO2/FiO2 ratio <150. Secondary endpoints will be: mortality rates, time to invasive mechanical ventilation, time to virological cure, length of hospital stay, toxicity. Patients with SARS-CoV2 pneumonia not requiring mechanical ventilation (both non invasive and invasive) will be randomized 1:1 to receive or not convalescent plasma. Patients in the plasma group will receive 200 ml of convalescent plasma, continuing already administered standard therapy, while patients in the control group will continue to receive the standard therapy. A rescue therapy will be allowed in case of clinical worsening. Patients will be followed-up until 30 days from randomization.

An HTML report was created for each of the unique drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms associated with COVID-19 clinical trials. Each report contains a list of either the drug, the MeSH terms, or the HPO terms. All of the terms in a category are displayed on the left-hand side of the report to enable easy navigation, and the reports contain a list of correlated drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms. Further, all reports contain the details of the clinical trials in which the term is referenced. Every clinical trial report shows the mapped HPO and MeSH terms, which are also hyperlinked. Related HPO terms, with their associated genes, protein mutations, and SNPs are also referenced in the report.Drug Reports MeSH Reports HPO Reports
