During the current COVID-19 Pandemic, all communities are relying heavily on medical personnel and first-responders to maintain high levels of psychological and occupational functioning. However, during times of persistent high levels of stress, many individuals experience depletion in psychological resources, suffering intense distress that can make daily occupational and interpersonal functioning difficult. In order to assist with this immense challenge, this research team has developed a brief daily intervention based on decades of stress and trauma research that may help to support psychological health in individuals on the frontlines who are most essential to society. Considerable evidence supports the role of attention to and conceptualization of emotional experience in psychological resilience. This project tests a highly innovative combination of interventions targeting these processes in a brief, daily activity. The primary project aim is to investigate the Daily Coping Toolkit for medical personnel and first responders to determine efficacy over time, to test relative dosing, and to explicate the underlying therapeutic processes. The toolkit consists of 3 activities, administered one time each day, taking minutes to complete and will be administered to n=1000 personnel. Data analysis will test the impact of the toolkit on momentary affective processes and on symptoms and wellbeing over 9 months. The impact of this research will be evidence to support the further use of this novel tool to assist essential front-line personnel during this ongoing crisis helping to mitigate the psychological toll and also support occupational functioning now and in the future.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a global emergency threatening to take millions of lives in the United States and around the world. There is no current vaccine strategy against COVID-19 infection caused by a novel coronavirus named SARS-CoV-2. Studies with a related coronavirus called SARS-CoV-1 that caused the SARS outbreak in 2003 indicated that memory CD8+ T cells recognizing viral epitopes persisted for more than 6 years post infection while neutralizing antibodies and memory B cells were short-lived and were undetectable after a short period of time (Tang et al., 2011; Peng et al., 2006; Channappanavar et al., 2014). Thus, including viral epitopes that are recognized by memory CD8+ T cells is imperative for vaccines that can provide long-term immunity against SARS-CoV-2. In this study, blood samples from COVID-19 patients who have recovered from the infection will be used to identify the viral epitopes recognized by their memory CD8+ T cells. This will be accomplished using a genome-wide, high-throughput screening technology developed at Harvard Medical School (Kula et al., 2019) and licensed by the study sponsor, TScan Therapeutics. A 24,000-member library that tiles across all ~100 viral isolates of SARS-CoV-2 that have been sequenced so far has already been synthesized at TScan. Blood samples from convalescent patients are urgently needed to identify T cell receptors and immunogenic viral epitopes on SARS-CoV-2. It is the hope that these data will inform development of a vaccine with the potential for long-lasting protection against SARS-CoV-2.

The current Sars-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic has created major changes in how physicians perform routine healthcare for our patients, including elective and non-elective surgical procedures. Beginning on March 16th, 2020 Northwell Health postponed all elective surgeries. As the incidence of COVID-19 cases begins to decrease and hospital volume improves we need to ensure the safety of our patients planning surgical procedures. However, at this time there is a scarcity of data regarding the COVID-19 test conversion rate in surgical patients. Our goal is to determine the COVID-19 test conversion rate in these patients to better guide strategies for restarting surgical care in a large-scale pandemic. Patients will be routinely tested with serology and PCR for COVID-19 24-48 hours prior to their scheduled surgery. Those who provide informed consent will be re-tested 12-16 days after discharge from the hospital to determine any potential nosocomial infection rate. Patients will also answer a few questions during their retest to allow the study team to gauge exposure risk postoperatively after leaving the hospital.

The current available diagnostic methods used for the detection of COVID-19 takes up to 4 hours. In some cases, these diagnostics tests make take up to a couple of days. As it is highly contagious, people who are in close contact with the infected person are at high risk of being infected. COVID-19 is transmitted through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The desire for rapid detection of COVID-19 has become an immediate necessity. The purpose of Kaligia Biosciences' saliva monitoring device (RBA-2) is to detect the presence of the COVID-19 virus in human saliva. The RBA-2 uses Raman Spectros-copy to detect the coronavirus. Once the sample is scanned successfully, the spectra contains the response of the component present in human saliva and provide results in a matter of minutes, rather than hours or days.

This study is an adaptive, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of novel therapeutic agents in hospitalized adults diagnosed with COVID-19. The study is a multicenter trial that will be conducted in up to approximately 100 sites globally. The study will compare different investigational therapeutic agents to a control arm. There will be interim monitoring to introduce new arms and allow early stopping for futility, efficacy, or safety. If one therapy proves to be efficacious, then this treatment may become the control arm for comparison(s) with new experimental treatment(s). Any such change would be accompanied by an updated sample size. Because background standards of supportive care may evolve/improve over time as more is learned about successful management of COVID-19, comparisons of safety and efficacy will be based on data from concurrently randomized subjects. An independent Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) will actively monitor interim data to make recommendations about early study closure or changes to study arms. To evaluate the clinical efficacy, as assessed by time to recovery, of different investigational therapeutics as compared to the control arm.

Despite widespread use of respiratory protective equipment in the U.S. healthcare workplace, there is very little clinical evidence that respirators prevent healthcare personnel (HCP) from airborne infectious diseases. Scientific investigation of this issue has been quite complicated, primarily because the use of respirators has become "the standard of care" for protection against airborne diseases in some instances, even without sufficient evidence to support their use. The key question remains: How well do respirators prevent airborne infectious diseases? The answer to this important question has important medical, public health, political and economic implications.

This study will evaluate and treat people with SARS, a new type of pneumonia (lung infection) originating in China. SARS is caused by a new virus that is easily transmitted from person to person. This study will look at the course of the disease; determine how the virus affects the body and how the body fights the infection; and evaluate diagnostic tests to quickly identify the disease. People 18 years of age and older with probable or suspected SARS may be eligible for this study. Close contacts of patients with SARS, patients who recovered from SARS, and NIH health care workers involved in the care of patients will also be enrolled. Patients with SARS who require hospitalization will be admitted to the NIH Clinical Center. Because SARS spreads easily, hospitalized patients will be in a room by themselves and will not be allowed any visitors. They will not leave their room except for tests, such as x-rays. All participants will have a full medical examination, including a medical history, physical examination, and blood tests. In addition, the participants undergo various tests and procedures as follows: - Probable and suspected SARS patients may be hospitalized or may be seen as outpatients. They are provided the treatment judged best for their disease, usually according to expressed or published recommendations. The best treatment for SARS is not yet known, and there have been no studies evaluating therapies. Outpatients are seen three times a week for 2 weeks, once a week for 4 more weeks, and then at 6 months. Patients have mouth and throat swabs taken three times a week for the first 2 weeks, then once a week for 4 more weeks. Blood is drawn three times a week for the first 2 weeks, then once at weeks 3, 4, and 6. If virus is still detectable after 6 weeks, nose washings and throat swabs are repeated until no virus is detected for 3 weeks in a row. In addition, patients provide urine and stool samples, have a chest x-ray and electrocardiogram, and undergo bronchoscopy and bronchial lavage. For the bronchoscopy, a bronchoscope (pencil-thin flexible tube) is passed into the large airways of the lung, allowing the physician to examine the airways. Cells and secretions from the airways are rinsed from the lung with salt water. A brush the size of a pencil tip is passed through the bronchoscope to scrape cells lining the airways and pieces of tissue are collected for analysis. - Close contacts of patients are evaluated twice a week for 2 weeks, then once a week for 2 more weeks. Blood is drawn at the first visit and then at 1, 2, and 4 weeks. Mouth and throat swabs, nose washings, and sputum collections are done twice a week for 2 weeks, then once a week for 2 more weeks. Urine and stool samples are collected once a week for 4 weeks. If virus from the nose or throat is still detectable after 4 weeks, weekly nose washings and throat swabs continue until no virus is detected for 3 weeks in a row. Blood may also be drawn during the weekly visits. - Recovered SARS patients provide blood, urine, and stool samples and have a mouth and throat swab and nose aspiration to see if the SARS virus is present. For the nasal aspiration, salt water is put in the nose and then suctioned out. Usually, these tests are done only once. If virus is detected, however, the nose washing, throat swabs and blood tests are repeated once a week until no virus is detected for 3 weeks in a row. - Health care workers document their contact with patients, use of isolation procedures and equipment, and any unexpected events that occur during contact. They are evaluated for symptoms of infection and provide a blood sample once a month

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a viral illness that affects the respiratory (breathing) system. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and protective (immune) responses to different doses of a SARS vaccine given with or without an adjuvant. An adjuvant is a substance that may be added to a vaccine to improve the immune response so that less of the vaccine may need to be given. Study participants will include 72 volunteers, ages 18-40, living in the Houston, Texas area. The study will take place at Baylor College of Medicine. Participants will receive 2 injections of vaccine or placebo (substance made to look like the study vaccine but contains no medication) given 1 month apart. Participants will fill out a memory aid (diary) to document daily temperature and illness signs and symptoms for 7-9 days after each injection. During the 9 study visits, several blood samples will be collected. Participants will be in the study for up to 211 days, including screening.
