There is one clinical trial.
Several recent studies point to the possibility of the new coronavirus (SARS-Cov2), which currently causes pandemic COVID-19, to infiltrate the central nervous system (CNS) and cause primary damage to neural tissues, increasing the morbidity and mortality of these patients. A pathophysiological hypothesis for insulting the CNS would be the impairment of cerebral compliance (CC), because elevation of intracranial pressure (ICP), but due to the invasive nature of the methods available for ICP evaluation, this hypothesis has so far not been verified. Recently, a noninvasive technique was developed to evaluate CC (B4C sensor), making it possible to analyse CC in patients outside the neurosurgical environment. Therefore, the main objective of this study was to assess the presence of CC impairment in patients with COVID-19, and observe potential influences of this syndrome on cerebral hemodynamics.
Description: Observe alteration in cerebral compliance due to potential intracranial hypertension during severe COVID-19. This situation is indicated when the relation P2/P1 given by the B4C sensor is >1.Measure: Detection of cerebral compliance impairment by the B4C sensor Time: During critical care, around 15 days/patient
Description: Observe disturbances in cerebral circulation during severe COVID-19, given by blood flow velocities in middle cerebral arteries (with normal range 40-70 cm/s) and the pulsatility index (normal <1.2) calculated by transcranial Doppler.Measure: Detection of cerebral hemodynamics impairment by transcranial Doppler Time: During critical care, around 15 days/patient
Description: Observe whether disturbances in cerebral compliance and hemodynamics assessed in this population is significantly associated with higher mortality.Measure: Calculate mortality in this population Time: 3 months

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
