Clinical Trial for New Corona Virus Approved for Hydroxychloroquine in US

Hydroxychloroquine clinical trial for new coronary pneumonia approved in the US by the US-FDA

According to a recent report from the US Newsweek website, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, headquartered in Switzerland, said it has reached an agreement with the US Food and Drug Administration to launch a new anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine treatment in the United States Clinical trials of hospitalized patients with pneumonia. The entire trial involved 400 patients to assess the effectiveness of the drug.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are currently no effective therapies and vaccines that can cure new coronary pneumonia.

In recent weeks, a number of clinical tests have been conducted around the world to determine whether hydroxychloroquine can relieve some symptoms of new coronary pneumonia, but the results obtained are very different.

US President Donald Trump previously said in a White House briefing and Twitter that the drug has potential therapeutic effects, and that the United States has stored 29 million hydroxychloroquine, but this has not been confirmed.

Drugs used in Coronavirus trial

Novartis said that clinical trials will be carried out in "a dozen places" in the United States, and volunteer recruitment will begin in the next few weeks. The drugs used in the trials will be provided by the company's generic and biosimilars departments.

Trials Approved by USFDA Simulation for Hydroxychloroquine in US for COVID-19

It is reported that in this trial, patients will be randomly divided into three groups: the first group taking hydroxychloroquine; the second group taking hydroxychloroquine combined with azithromycin (an antibiotic).

Is hydroxychloroquine beneficial to COVID-19 patients?

The third group taking placebo drugs. John Chua, Chief Medical Officer of Novartis, said:
"It is very important to answer the scientific question of whether hydroxychloroquine is beneficial to patients with new coronary pneumonia. We hope this randomized, placebo-controlled study can solve this problem."

Novartis plans co-sponsor clinical trials

It is reported that in addition to hydroxychloroquine, Novartis also plans to sponsor or co-sponsor clinical trials to study the efficacy of kinase inhibitors lucotinib and canastuzumab in the treatment of inpatients with new coronary pneumonia.

Herpes Virus Infections Biological Traits Immunity and Pathogenicity

Infections Biological Traits Pathogenicity of  Herpes Virus Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a typical representative of herpes virus. It is named because herpes simplex occurs in the acute phase of infection.  It can cause a variety of human diseases, such as gingivostomatitis, keratoconjunctivitis, keratoconjunctivitis, encephalitis, and reproductive system infections and newborn infections. After infecting the host, a latent infection is often established in nerve cells. After activation, asymptomatic detoxification will occur. The chain of transmission will be maintained in the population and it will circulate repeatedly.
