New Flu Therapy Can Help Fight Kovid-19: Study

New York: Scientists have developed a new therapy for influenza virus infections that could be effective against many other pathogenic virus infections, including HIV and Covid 19.
On average, more than 2 million people in the United States are infected with the flu each year, and 30,000 to 80,000 of them die from it or its related complications.
According to the studyThe research team used a targeted treatment against the virus infection, published in the journal Nature Communications.
“We target all antiviral drugs designed specifically for virus-infected cells,” he said. the study Author Philip S. Lowe from Purdue University in the United States.
“In this way, we treat diseased cells without harming healthy cells. We use this ability to deliver selectively immunosuppressive drugs to flu-infected cells,” Lou added.
It is also possible that this therapy may be effective in people affected by COVD-19.
The flu virus, like many other pathogenic viruses, carries its protein to the surface of its host cell and then spreads to the newborn virus in the process of spreading to adjacent host cells.
Because these recovered viral proteins are not present in the membranes of healthy host cells, the research team exploited the presence of viral proteins in infected cells by designing homing molecules that target infected cells, and therefore Avoids collateral toxicity. When antiviral drugs are taken through unwanted cells.
“We have chosen to start our tests with the influenza virus because the results can often be applied to other envelope viruses. Our lab tests show that our action works in influenza-infected mice that are infected with the virus.” Vaccinated with 100 times the lethal dose. ” .
The researchers said the new therapy could be effective against other pathogenic viral infections such as hepatitis B, HIV and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).
