Certain medical drugs can help cure Corona

Israel National News tells of some drug experiments in the US and UK that'll hopefully come in useful for putting an end to Coronavirus:
The immune system is usually seen as our ally in fighting disease, but in the case of coronavirus, it can sometimes turn into our foe. A phenomenon known as a cytokine storm has been implicated in many fatal cases of Covid-19, and several drugs are currently being tested to calm this storm and raise patients’ chances of survival.

These drugs are known as anti-C5 drugs as they prevent a molecule named C5 from triggering the complement system to produce cytokines, which are known to cause inflammation in the body. Over-activation of cytokines (also known as a cytokine storm) has also been associated with many other diseases such as asthma, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and inflammatory bowel disease.

As noted, several drugs are already being tested for use in serious cases of coronavirus, in hospitals in the United Kingdom and the United States. Trials are ongoing, but the drugs are already showing promise. One that looks especially encouraging is ravulizumab, which is already in use for treatment of certain rare blood diseases.
I sure hope this does avail, because the time's come to put this disgusting virus in the trash already.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
