Umifenovir used as a trial
CDRI director Tapas Kundu said that during the corona epidemic, umifenovir was used as a trial drug at the behest of 16 members of CDRI. After a three-phase trial on corona patients, umifenovir has been found to be effective in the treatment of patients with asymptomatic and mild symptoms. In such corona patients, 800 mg dose of umifenovir has to be taken twice a day for five days to almost eliminate the effect of the virus.
effective in fast recovery
Rapid recovery has been observed in corona patients due to the effect of Umifenovir. The umifenovir trial involved patients aged 18-75 years. The technology of making the medicine has been given to the Medigest M/s of Goa. Umifenovir may soon be launched in the form of tablets and syrups. The price of umifenovir will be kept within the reach of patients. He told that for the last 20 years, this drug has been used in Russia, China and other countries in the treatment of diseases like influenza and pneumonia.
safe for kids too
CDRI’s Chief Scientist R Ravi Shankar said, “Umifenovir, which is used in the treatment of corona, is safe for pregnant women and children as well.” Umifenovir effectively destroys the cell culture of SARS COVID-19. It prevents the entry of corona virus into human cells. The cost of a five-day drug of Umifenovir comes to around Rs 600. The Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) has evaluated the clinical trial reports and asked to continue the study on more mild symptomatic patients for emergency use approval.
