We are currently recruiting for two COVID-19 studies.
Join us in our fight against COVID-19.

Have you recently been in close contact with someone with COVID-19?


Close contact is defined by the CDC as being within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes.

We are looking for people who have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 but do not have any symptoms to participate in a national clinical trial organized by Johns Hopkins University. We are sorry that you or someone you know, or a patient in your care, has COVID-19. Here’s an opportunity to help others who may get exposed to COVID-19 in the future.

The Task at Hand

Scientists and doctors are working around-the-clock to identify how to minimize the impact of this disease. Clinical trials are needed to determine which ones hold promise.

Can I Join?

You may be able to join if you:

  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 within the past three (3) days (close contact is defined by the CDC as being within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes)
  • Do NOT have symptoms of COVID
  • Can travel to a nearby clinic

What’s Involved?

One plasma infusion at enrollment with follow-up visits to a nearby facility (physical exam, swab test, lab tests) and telephone calls over 90 days.

What will the Study Test?

This study will test whether an infusion of plasma containing antibodies from recovered people can prevent uninfected people in a high-risk situation from developing COVID-19. Antibodies are part of the body’s immune system. Plasma is the liquid portion of the blood that contains these antibodies.

Have you recently tested POSITIVE for COVID-19?


We are looking for people who have recently tested positive for COVID-19 to participate in a national study at multiple sites organized by Johns Hopkins University. This trial is to determine if plasma antibodies, from people who have recovered from COVID-19, can help others who have been recently diagnosed with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

The Task at Hand

Scientists and doctors are working around-the-clock to identify how to minimize the impact of this disease. Clinical trials are needed to determine which ones hold promise.

Can I Join?

You may be able to join if you:

  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Have had a positive COVID-19 test within the past five (5) days
  • Are still having at least one COVID symptom
    • cough or shortness of breath
    • fever or chills
    • muscle pain
    • headache
    • sore throat
    • loss of taste or smell
    • new skin rash or neurological changes
  • Can travel to a nearby clinic

What’s Involved?

One plasma infusion within a day of enrollment with follow-up visits to a nearby facility (physical exam, swab test, lab tests) and telephone calls over 90 days and a symptom diary you fill out between visits.

What will the Study Test?

This study will test whether a transfusion of plasma with antibodies from recovered people will be a good early treatment for other people who get COVID-19 in the future.

Sign Up

What happens if I sign up? We will match you to a research site in your area that needs people who have recently tested positive for COVID-19 or people who have recently been in close contact with someone with COVID-19, or notify you when one becomes available. The study team will then contact you, and you may have the opportunity to participate if qualified.


If you think you might like to participate in the COVID-19 Plasma Trial or would like more information, please enter your information below so we can see if you may qualify and can contact you about the studies. Keep in mind that participation is entirely voluntary. If you do decide to take part in a study, you may change your mind about participating at any time.

We sincerely thank you for your interest in supporting the effort to fight this illness.
