Professor Yaakov Nahmias from Hebrew University found the cholesterol drug, fenofibrate, to lower the threat level of COVID-19 just like a common cold. The researcher tested the drug in labs on human lung tissue that was infected with SARS-CoV-2 which the source of COVID-19. The study has shown the virus to cause lipids to deposit in the lungs. With the help of Mount Sinai Medical Center researcher Dr. Benjamin tenOeverNahmias was able to get a clear idea about the virus, SARS-CoV-2, mechanism after entering the human body. As per the research, the virus is known to bring about a change in the lipid metabolism in the human lungs.
According to the researchers, the very thought of inhibiting the process of lipid deposition could likely help halt the commencement of problems that intensify the severity of the disease with the time. Even though SARS-CoV-2 inhibits the breakdown of fat, cholesterol drug helps bind and activate the DNA site which is jammed by the virus. The interesting fact is that fenofibrate helps initiate the process of fat burn in the COVID-19 patients by activating the DNA sites present in the lungs. The damage to the lung cells through the buildup of fat could be reduced with the help of the drug by halting the reproduction or killing the virus.
Nahmias has confirmed through the research that once the drug is consumed the body can deal with the virus and then all we left with is to cure the symptoms. In case of COVID-19, time plays an important role as clearing the virus completely from the body takes days and it needs to be without causing any respiratory failure. Therefore, fenofibrate is affirmed to help transform the disease from a severe illness to just a common cold. The advancements in the treatment are found to have entered the fast-track clinical trials in the US, Israel, and few more regions.
