The drug “remdesivir” is ineffective for treating “Corona”…
Today, Friday, the World Health Organization dashed hopes that the drug “remdesivir” to treat Ebola and three other current drugs would be useful tools for treating the Corona virus.
And it appeared that trials using the four drugs, conducted among 11,000 patients in 30 countries, “had little or no effect on survivors and disease progression among patients who were hospitalized,” the organization said in a statement.
And the clinical “solidarity trial” launched by the organization included the drug “remdesivir” and the drug “lopinavir / ritonavir” to treat HIV, and the drug “hydroxychloroquine and interferon” to treat malaria.
The European Union had placed its bet on the drug “Remdisfer”. And the European Commission announced a contract this month to obtain additional supplies of the anti-viral drug for 500,000 patients.
Despite questions about its effectiveness, the drug “remdesivir” is the first drug to obtain European Union approval for treating severe cases of the disease caused by the emerging corona virus.
