Team led by Mangalurean doctor on verge of developing cure for coronavirus


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Mar 29: A team of doctors led by Dr Vishal Rao of Mangaluru origin has become almost successful in finding medicine for the dreaded coronavirus pandemic that has created havoc all around the world.

This medicine has already reached the last stage of the clinical trial as per information provided by Dr Rao who is an oncologist and regional director of HGC Hospital in Bengaluru.

Generally Interferon (protein) that kills the virus is released in the body of human beings. But in the case of coronavirus, these proteins do not get released as the immunity of the patient suffering from coronavirus infection will be far lower than normal human being.

This is a simple treatment, according Dr Rao. Cytokines are given to the patient suffering from coronavirus through injection or IV (intravenous) method. When the mixture of Cytokines is given via IV to the patient, his or her capacity to fight against the virus increases. This medicine stimulates the cells of the body to release interferon, which kill the virus. As per media reports, Dr Rao has requested the governments to consider his recommendation on priority.

Dr Vishal Rao, who was born and brought up in Mangaluru, studied in St Aloysius College and completed his MBBS in Belagavi. He completed his MS from Tata hospital in Mumbai and FRCS (Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons) from London. Along with Dr Rao, Dr Gururaja Rao and Dr Jyotsna Rao have also joined hands in discovering the medicine for coronavirus.

    I am naive wrt pharma information.

    My doubt is if the potential medicine discussed in the above article derived inspiration from "Interferon-Alpha 2b" developed by Cuba quite some time ago.

    Agree with Anon India. Wishful thinking is good but wait until you find something that works. Don't build everyone's hope just on some possibilities. I was wondering about the testing period myself. But anyway good attempt in keeping people, including myself 😁, busy talking about it. Hopensomeone comes up with a remedy soon.

    1) Interferons only act as signalling proteins and do not kill the virus
    It's T lymphocytes, natural killer (NK) cells and antiviral macrophages that recognise the virus with the help of interferons and helper t cells and kill them.
    2) Artificially inducing interferon production by administering intravenously introducing cytokines in the body might cause excessive production of interferons eventually leading to the immune system going berserk and destroying important tissues which might lead to organ failure (as in multiple autoimmune disorders)
    3) Even if this method eventually comes to be accepted as a treatment option for covid19, it needs to go through an extensive testing period until it can finally be administered to the general population.

    So we aren't 'on verge of developing a cure'. It isn't going to happen anytime soon if we are to follow proper conduct before it is officialised. This is a very stressful time for humankind as a whole and we need to stop spreading rumours/sharing misinformation. I understand you need views but click-baiting people, spreading misinformation and writing articles when you don't really understand what's happening is unacceptable.

    Hope everyone who reads this has their doubts cleared and please don't believe in everything you come across on the internet. Try to keep WHO articles as your guidelines and use authentic, unaltered and reliable news sources. May we all get through this together.
    Have a great day/evening.

    I am sure this works because it works around increasing immunity...
    Once you have immunity your body will kill virus...
