List of the Most Promising Covid-19 Treatment Options
- Anti-malaria drugs (hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine) combined with Azithromycin
- New studies exploring inhaled nitric oxide (NO) to prevent and treat coronavirus
Click on title above or here for direct link to the news release. Nitric Oxide has been used successfully to help people with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), pulmonary hypertension (basically high blood pressure inside your lungs), and SARS coronavirus. Nitric oxide decreased virus replication by 50% when administered to African monkeys infected with SARS coronavirus…. in lay terms NO was able to make coronavirus stop spreading as much inside the body. The recent study is also finding promising outcomes in using NO to protect healthcare workers from getting coronavirus.
HOW DOES NO WORK? Nitric oxide relaxes the smooth muscle in your lungs, allowing the arteries in your lungs to get wider, decreasing pressure and resistance in the airways. Simply put, NO will make it easier to breath.
