Summary

BLUE CORAL is an observational, biorepository study for patients who are hospitalized with COVID-19. The study collects various data and biospecimens, such as blood, urine, and tracheal aspirates, during the patient's hospital stay. The data and biospecimens collected will be used to provide greater knowledge on the biology and epidemiology of COVID-19.

An Observational Cohort Study to Determine Late Outcomes and Immunological Responses after Infection with SARS- CoV-2 in Children with and without Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS-C)

Researcher
Natasha Ruth

List of Studies


Keywords
Coronavirus, Pediatrics
Summary

We will aim to enroll children who have had a nasal swab test showing infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, or children with a serious complication of COVID-19 called the Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C). This study does not offer any treatment for COVID-19 or MIS-C. The purpose of the study is to collect information that will help us understand what happens to children and young adults who get infected with SARS-CoV-2, and how their immune system responds. Most of the information that we will collect is part of usual care for young people who have COVID-19 or MIS-C. In addition, we will do some extra clinical and blood tests. Children and young adults who are enrolled in the study will be followed for one year. Our goal is to enroll up to 250 children and young adults (up to the time of your 21st birthday) from about 20 hospitals in the United States. At our center we plan to enroll about 10 participants.

Influenza Vaccine Effectiveness for Preventing Laboratory-Confirmed Severe Influenza-Associated Illness and Understanding Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Overcoming COVID-19) in US Children

List of Studies


Keywords
Coronavirus, Pediatrics
Summary

The Overcoming Cohort study is a studies looking for variations in DNA,for populations less than or 25 years of age, that either protect people from COVID-19 disease or make them more susceptible. The study will sequence patients' entire genome or the smaller group of genes that code for proteins (exome). The study would gain a better understanding of COVID-19 that would improve diagnostic, prevention, and treatment measures.

Assessing prior SARS-CoV-2 infection among the general population in Charleston, South Carolina: a community seroprevalence study

Date Added

PRO Number
Pro00103008
Researcher
Michael Sweat

List of Studies


Keywords
COVID-19, Coronavirus, Infectious Diseases, Non-interventional, SARS-CoV-2
Summary

Understanding the current epidemiology of COVID-19 is of urgent importance in light of the continued pandemic. Given current testing guidelines, the number of individuals within the Charleston, South Carolina area who have had COVID-19 is unknown. Many such individuals may have been asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic. Thus, the number of confirmed cases, those who are or have been symptomatic and tested for COVID-19, is most likely a significant underrepresentation of the community seroprevalence of the virus. The purpose of this study is to determine the number of prior COVID-19 infections that are present in the Charleston area among adults, and to evaluate characteristics associated with infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19.

Testing a wearable telemedicine-controllable taVNS device for NeuroCovid Recovery and Rehab

PRO Number

Researcher
Mark George

List of Studies


Keywords
Anxiety, Coronavirus, Depression, Pain
Summary

The purpose of the research is to test out a new form of treatment where we stimulate a nerve in your ear. This is called transcutaneous (through the skin) auricular (ear) vagus nerve stimulation (taVNS) which means that you will receive stimulation through the ear. The taVNS device looks like an ear bud you would use with your smart phone or computer. We are investigating whether or not taVNS can treat neurologic symptoms of COVID-19 which are termed NEUROCOVID. Some symptoms you may experience are new onset anxiety, depression, vertigo, loss of smell, headaches, fatigue, irritability, etc. This study is entirely online and all assessments will be completed virtually.

Keywords
COVID-19, Coronavirus, Vaccine
Summary

The purpose of this study is to see if a vaccine that is being developed to prevent people from getting sick with COVID-19 is safe and effective and also to see how well it is tolerated. Participants will receive a shot of either the vaccine or a placebo twice: once on Day 1 and a booster shot on Day 29. Participants will have blood drawn several times for the next 24 months to assess your immune system's (how your body fights off the virus) response. Participation will last about 24 months. Participants will receive payment in return for their time and effort.

Colonizing Microbiome as a Determinant of COVID-19 Outcome

Date Added

PRO Number
Pro00102644
Researcher
Alexander Alekseyenko

List of Studies


Keywords
Coronavirus, Immune System, Infectious Diseases, Non-interventional, SARS-CoV-2
Summary

COVID-19 testing involves collection of swabs from nasopharyngeal cavities where the SARS-CoV-2 virus replicates. Many other commensal and pathogenic microbes may be found in the same host niche. Collectively, these microbes are called the microbiome. We hypothesize that the colonizing microbiome at the time of diagnosis may provide leads for early stratification of cases into risk categories, future clinical manifestations of the disease, and insights into treatment strategies.

Expanded Access to Convalescent Plasma for the Treatment of Pediatric Patients with COVID-19

List of Studies


Keywords

Summary

People who recover from COVID-19 do so, at least in part, because their blood contains substances called antibodies, which are capable of fighting the virus that causes the illness. It turns out that for some other diseases caused by respiratory viruses, giving people the liquid portion of blood, called plasma, obtained from those who have recovered from the virus, leads to more rapid improvement of the disease. We think that patients with COVID-19 may improve faster if they receive plasma from those who have recovered from COVID-19, because it may have the ability to fight the virus that causes COVID-19.
We are performing this study to see if children admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 may have an improved chance of recovery by receiving plasma from someone who has recovered from COVID-19.
