Six Potential Drugs Identified To Treat Coronavirus:- The scientists have identified six drugs to treat coronavirus for more than 10,000 compounds. This is as per the reports published in the journal Nature, the researchers tested the efficacy of the drugs "Currently there are no targeted therapeutics or effective treatment options for COVID-19" said Luke Guddat, the Professor from the University of Queensland, Australia. He said that they initiated the program of drug screening. They targetted the main coronavirus enzyme which is known as the main MPRO that plays a crucial role in mediating the viral replication as per the reports from the researchers.
The drugs are added to the enzyme directly growing the virus to stop the enzyme working or to completely kill the virus. After analyzing thousands of drugs, research finalized six drugs that appear to treat the coronavirus. Gudddat said that they are looking at the disorders and treatments. Several leads are looking at and the clinical trials are worked. With these compounds, the researchers are working on the drug discovery. It will sure take some time for the drug to be finalized and released.
