There are over 2118 on-going clinical trials underway, but to d…
  • The COVID-19 pandemic: is our medicine still evidence-based? [Journal Article]
    Ir J Med Sci. 2020 May 28 [Online ahead of print]Deana C
  • There is no randomized controlled trial that demonstrated the efficacy of antiviral therapy against COVID-19 yet. However, physicians are prescribing different drugs to a large part of COVID-19 population in the hope they will cure them. This does not reflect the evidence-based medicine approach. What we need is more evidence-based knowledge about what routine care practices we should to apply to…
  • Remdesivir in Treatment of COVID-19: A Systematic Benefit-Risk Assessment. [Journal Article]
    Drug Saf. 2020 May 28 [Online ahead of print]Davies M, Osborne V, … Shakir S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Preliminary clinical trial results suggest that there may be a favourable benefit-risk profile for remdesivir compared with placebo in severe COVID-19 infection and further data on benefits would strengthen this evaluation. There is limited safety data for remdesivir, which should be obtained in further studies. The current framework summarises the key anticipated benefits and risks for which further data are needed. Ongoing clinical trial data can be incorporated into the framework when available to provide an updated benefit-risk assessment.

  • The outbreak of COVID-19 caused by 2019-nCov/SARS-CoV-2 has become a pandemic with an urgent need for understanding the mechanisms and identifying a treatment. Viral infections including SARS-CoV are associated with increased levels of reactive oxygen species, disturbances of Ca++ caused by unfolded protein response (UPR) mediated by endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and is due to the exploitatio…
  • Remdesivir: Review of pharmacology, pre-clinical data and emerging clinical experience for COVID-19. [Review]
    Pharmacotherapy. 2020 May 23 [Online ahead of print]Jorgensen SC, Kebriaei R, Dresser LD
  • The global pandemic of novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has created an urgent need for effective antivirals.
