CAN CHOLESTEROL DRUGS AND ANTIHISTAMINES FIGHT COVID 19?

Good morning dear friends and fellow colleagues, Trials are going regarding working of cholesterol drugs and antihistamines against COVID 19. Studying primary human lung cells that were infected in the lab with SARS Cov-2 showed how the cells began to accumulate in large amounts of lipid droplets. After infection, lung proteins down regulatethe ability of lung cells to burn carbohydrates and fatty acids. Lung cells are not designed to hold fat, which could explain some of the severe damage to the lungs of the patients with Covid 19. The virus is dependent on glucose uptake and cholesterol production and fatty acid oxidation. More research is needed on the cholesterol drug Fenofibrate before the clinical trials can begin. The antihistamine Cloperastine, which is mostly sold in Japan,blocks glucose uptake in lung cells and has shown a small effect in fighting Covid 19. With regards, Dr Sepuri Tirumala Devi.
