| IIPharma proposes potential new applications for older drugs against novel coronaviruses
It takes 8 to 12 years to develop a new drug. It is not likely to achieve a timely development of drugs to combat coronaviruses. IIPharma uses Intelligent Brain TM to search for potential solutions by repurposing old drugs and traditional Chinese medicine (as shown in the table below). Initial results are being made public in the hope of providing potential solutions for clinicians.
The four schemes above are based on publicly available research data and the analysis of old drugs. Corresponding molecular, biochemical, cellular mechanisms of action, and a few animal experiments, are available in the original references in the appendix. These drugs may be effective as a monotherapy or in combination with other drugs.
IIPharma is an early-stage startup and hasn’t established its own pharmacology laboratory, hence is not able to validate the results provided above. IIPharma called on experts to experiment on these drug molecules based on their judgements and contribute to the rapid elimination of the 2019-nCov.
Disclaimer: the above four schemes are scientific research results and do not guarantee any clinical efficacy. Patients should follow the guidance of doctors.
