Brief Summary:
This is a multicentered, open-label, randomized controlled Phase 2 trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of providing human coronavirus-immune convalescent plasma as treatment for COVID-19 disease in hospitalized children in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hospitalized Children Covid-19 Infection Biological: Convalescent plasma (CP) Phase 2

Detailed Description:
SARS-CoV-2 viral infection resulting in COVID-19 disease has recently been designated by the World Health Organization as a global pandemic. Outbreak forecasting and mathematical models suggest that the number of COVID-19 cases will continue to rise over the coming weeks and months. There is an urgent public health need for rapid development of novel interventions. This protocol aims to use passive antibody therapy via convalescent plasma from SARS-CoV-2-infected patients who have developed antibody immunity, COVID-19 convalescent plasma (C19-CP), as treatment for hospitalized children with COVID-19 disease at pediatric academic hospitals across Canada. The unknown role for convalescent plasma in treating COVID-19 necessitates further study.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 100 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Subjects will be randomized to receive either standard of care (SoC) products (control) or COVID-19 convalescent plasma (C19-CP) plus standard of care while being hospitalized for COVID-19 (ratio 1:2). The intervention will consist of a single transfusion of convalescent plasma.
Masking: None (Open Label)

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Convalescent Plasma + Standard of Care (C19-CP + SoC)
Participants will receive COVID-19 convalescent plasma (C19-CP) plus standard of care while being hospitalized for COVID-19.
Biological: Convalescent plasma (CP)
Participants will receive one infusion of convalescent plasma proportional to their weight (10 mL/kg), up to a maximum of 500 mL

No Intervention: Standard of Care (SoC)
Participants will receive standard of care while being hospitalized for COVID-19.
