Thank you to the Jerusalem Post for this article.
In our work we talk to medical specialists routinely and learned about this major breakthrough on the morning of July 16th.
There is such a dearth of good news we had to pass it on “instanter.”
According to Israeli researchers an FDA-approved drug called “Fenofibrate” (Tricor) was able to eradicate the virus almost completely within five days of treatment.
Prof. Ya’acov Nahmias and Mount Sinai Medical Center’s Dr. Benjamin tenOever claimed in a new research that the FDA-approved drug normally used to treat high cholesterol, could make the effects of COVID-19 feel like a common cold or eradicate it from the lungs altogether.
The research, done over the past three months by Prof. Nahmias’ team and scientists at Mount Sinai, postulates the novel coronavirus needs an accumulation of fat inside lung cells in order to reproduce itself.
“By understanding how the SARS-CoV-2 (scientific name for coronavirus) controls our metabolism, we can wrestle back control from the virus and deprive it of the very resources it needs to survive,” Nahmias told the Jerusalem Post.
The findings of the study explain why high blood sugar and cholesterol levels, are highly dangerous factors for COVID-19 carriers, even without having diabetes.
The research is to be published this week in the journal “Cell.”
