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.


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.
