See The Drug That Killed Corona Virus Cell Culture Within 48 Hours In Australia



On Friday, a group of Australian researchers at Monash University in Melbourne found that an anti-parasitic drug killed corona virus (a single stranded RNA virus) cell culture within 48hours in the lab.


The antiparasitic drug is believed to act by not only binding to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels but also trigger the release of natural killer cells (NK cells) from MHC class I molecules on the cell surface which in turn leads to the detection and display of the viral peptide and their subsequent removal from the body.

A virus can either have a DNA or an RNA and outside a living cell, viruses crystalize.

The antiparasitic drug is effective in vitro against a broad range of viruses including influenza, zika virus and HIV virus.

The Australian researchers said they are working hard to figure out the dose that can be used in humans that will be effective.

We pray earnestly that this should have a headway.
