Medicine to treat a cat disease that “may benefit” in the treatment of corona


Medicine to treat a cat disease that “may benefit” in the treatment of corona
Experts hope that a medicine intended for cats will treat the Corona virus (Covid-19), which has infected more than 277,000 people worldwide, and has caused 11,000 deaths, according to the World Health Organization.

Tests are currently being done to find out if Retromad1, which is used to treat leukemia and a virus similar to a cat that affects cats, may also treat Covid-19 disease.

Feline infectious peritonitis, which affects cats, belongs to the human family of corona viruses, according to the newspaper “The Sun”.

According to Dr. Ng Sher Yu, CEO of Biofiance Technologies, this drug developed by the Malaysian company is used in veterinary clinics in Singapore.
According to the British newspaper, the drug was supposed to be used to treat human herpes viral disease, but it has not been formally tested for human use.
BioValence Technologies is now looking to test the drug in humans and see its effect on the emerging corona virus. But it may take years for the drug to be fully tested and clinically approved.

A spokesman for “Biofiance Technologies” said that the new drug would be used to treat people with Covid-19 infection, stressing that “it is not a vaccine, so it cannot be used on healthy individuals to prevent them from getting infected.”

With the new Corona virus epidemic sweeping the world, governments, companies and investors are struggling to face the biggest public health crisis since the 1918 flu pandemic.

In a related context, the Federal Authority for Consumer Rights Monitoring in Russia said on Friday that Russian scientists have begun testing prototypes of possible vaccines for the Corona virus on animals in a laboratory in Siberia.

Scientists around the world have warned that developing a vaccine is a long, complex process that may not work for anything after 12 to 18 months.
