Is Remdesivir a Potential Drug Against Covid-19? - Virus 11

A potential drug to combat Corona Virus
(credit to Daily Mail)

At previous posted, we discussed about the time length to produce possible vaccine of Covid-19 (When Will Vaccine for Covid-19 Available? - Virus 4).

We just listening and watching “good news” about prospect to combat SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes Covid-19 in recent days.

Drug called “Remdesivir” was designated to control the Ebola virus, but the effect “not so good.”

Since its able to block “the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase” enzyme which is used by virus to replicate itself (by helping from human cells), the “Remdesivir” then applied to combat SARS and MERS viruses.

Remdesivir ables to control both SARS and MERS viruses in the laboratory and animal experiments.

In case of Covid-19, the drug has been given to 1,063 patients in 22 countries, include:
- USA
- China
- Japan
- UK and other several European countries.

Reported from several resources showed that drugs have positive effects on:
- shorten recovery from 15 days to 11 days.
- reducing mortality rate from 11% to 8%.

Yes, the result was “promising,” but not significant statistically, thus it needs to be further analyzed, and the trial might be expanded.

However, CEO of Gilead Sciences, the company which produced “Remdesivir,” has planned to supply the drugs to hospitals in the USA by next week.

The drugs will be used to treat about 200,000 infected patients. If success, the drugs will be developed into three forms:
- administered through IV
- by injection
- pills

We wait and pray for the best, hope, Covid-19 disappears soon.

  1. Semoga faktanya benar Remdesivir adalah vaksin terampuh membasmi korona.

    Atau juga, team medis dapat segera menciptakan vaksin yang lebih ampuh dari Remdesivir agar epidemi segera berakhir.

  9. I am glad that FDA approved the use of Remdesivir because it blocks virus and recovery is more speedy. It's better than nothing but I am waiting for vaccine.

  20. I have also heared and read many things about this therapy, I am not a doctor or a pharmacist to say something but I what I can say is that until the vaccine is ready, I just hope won't get the virus, therefore I stay home unless necessary.

  23. Let's hope this will be even more successful--but the shortening of hospital stay and death by approximately 30% is something (but it depends on what side affects that may happen in the 7o%)
