Clinical Trials

Plasma Donation BagIf you have been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19 and do not require hospitalization, you may be eligible to take part in clinical studies examining both the treatment and prevention of the virus.

Nuvance Health is seeking volunteers through the early fall of this year to participate in two clinical trials to test the effectiveness of convalescent blood plasma for outpatient COVID-19 study intervention. The trials aim to recruit 1,100 people from across the country to help researchers determine if convalescent blood plasma therapy can effectively be used to treat people in the early stages of COVID-19 illness or prevent the infection in those at high risk of exposure to the virus at their homes or jobs.

For more information on eligibility, please contact: COVID19plasmaStudy@nuvancehealth.org or call (203) 739-7411 (TTY: 800-842-9710) in Connecticut or (845) 230-1411 (TTY:800 421-1220) in New York. Nationwide, please visit www.covidplasmatrial.org or call (888) 506-1199.
