Coronavirus Epidemic Update 11: Antiviral Drugs, Treatment Trials for nCoV (Remdesivir, Chloroquine)

February 5, 2020


welcome to another MedCram coronavirus
update the deaths have gone from four hundred and twenty seventh four hundred
ninety three and that’s an increase of about fifteen percent that’s a little
bit less than it’s been in the last couple of days normally it’s been
running in the eighteen to twenty percent confirmed infections has gone to
twenty four thousand five hundred and sixteen that’s up around nineteen
percent and then we’ve got recovered yesterday was at six hundred and fifty
seven today up to nine hundred and six and I think we should see that these
numbers are gonna continue to increase because we’ve gotten through a number of
weeks of illness with these patients okay we’re gonna talk about some of the
quick items in the news and then we’ll get to the big topic which has been new
drugs that are being looked at to treat the corona virus pneumonia and lung
diseases okay quick items in the news first of all testing in the United
States has typically been done by the CDC up to this point well now they are
going to distribute those two specific local labs so that those labs can
process some of these tests that would be done perhaps on a more regular basis
this is the swab up to this point there have been eleven positive out of a
hundred and seventy eight tests that have been performed there’s another
eighty two tests that are outstanding right now and we’ll see what the results
of those show yesterday we talked about the diamond princess about 3700 are on
board and this is floating off the coast of Japan and it looks as though there
are ten positive on board based on the stories that are coming out remember
this was a ship that had sailed and it was found out that there was a man that
was on this ship in late January and ten of them are positive already on
the ship unclear if it was a direct result of this man that had tested
positive earlier thirdly there is another dashboard out there I know we’ve
had some positive feedback with the Johns Hopkins dashboard I wanted to make
you aware of another dashboard that I thought was very clean I had a lot of
good information on it and so we’ll put a link in the description okay so
there’s this letter to the editor to nature nature’s a big journal very
prestigious this is February the 4th that this was published and it is
describing the medications specifically REM D severe and chloroquine and why
this is important so let’s talk about REM dis aver first going back there were
a number of medications that were looked at during the SARS and MERS outbreak
both of which by the way are coronaviruses there were medications
that they had tried like revive ayran obviously they had tried REM des aver as
well and these were shown to be efficacious in stopping viral production
in vitro so the key there is the word in vitro in vitro
means in a petri dish in a test tube not necessarily in a human being and this is
where a lot of tests are done at first now what they did do is they looked at
this medication called REM des aver and they tried it in Ebola and the reason
why they did this was because it worked in Ebola it worked in vitro in Ebola and
they said hey maybe we can try this in Ebola patients or in people who are in
proximity to people with the Ebola virus so that they don’t get Ebola and so when
they tried it it didn’t work okay people still got Ebola so that’s an
example where a medication works in vitro but not in vivo nevertheless
before they could take this medication REM des aver to market before they could
even try it in these patients they had to make sure that it was safe and so the
safety tests have already been done on REM this aver we know that it’s a
relatively safe medication to use in patients the problem was it
just didn’t work in vivo in patients in real life
but it did work in vitro against a bunch of viruses so enter in now the corona
virus 2019 and you’ve got a situation where people are dying and there’s an
epidemic why not try REM the severe well the first thing you’ve got to want to do
is to make sure this medication actually works against not the SARS not the MERS
not Ebola but the actual corona virus 2019 and so that’s what they did they
actually tried it in cells that were infected with the current strain of the
corona virus from Wuhan China now how does this medication work what does it
do so you’ve got the cell and you’ve got the virus and the virus has to fuse with
the cell and it goes inside the cell and when it does that it basically dumps its
RNA into the cell and uses the cellular machinery to reproduce more RNA well for
those of you who are aware of what RNA is or DNA for that matter it’s basically
just a code and you know the DNA code for instance is like a T G C and this
can go on and on and on with however RNA instead of having the T’s those T’s
become use so instead of T’s you’d have a u G C you you okay that’s the only
real difference of course it’s usually a single-stranded and DNA is usually
double-stranded so what happens is that these nucleotides are lined up one after
the other and there are you know T and RNA is that come in and help put the
nucleotides in the correct order and this is done using different polymerases
well what this medication does is it resembles one of the A’s except it
doesn’t allow the next one to come on whatever that happens to be so the virus
comes in to the cell and it says aha I’m taking you over and you’re just going to
start to produce more RNA viruses like me and so the machinery starts to go
along and as soon as it gets to an A this medication gets
put in and boom it’s done there’s no more polymerization the strand cannot
continue and so this arrests the production of virus well the good news
is is that they found that this worked well in the new 2019 strain of the
corona virus and so here you’ve got a medication that has already been tested
on human beings for safety it’s available it’s there you just don’t have
a good FDA indication because it doesn’t work on Ebola and you don’t have a SARS
outbreak currently but now you’ve got this corona virus outbreak so what do
they do even though they don’t have any evidence that it’s going to work and
usually we only give medications to people when we have evidence that it
works they use it for something called compassionate use in other words look
this patient’s going to die let’s give them this medication see if it works so
they did that they did that in the first patient in the United States that came
down with the virus and it was in Washington State and within a day
this patient started feeling better and within three or four days the fever
completely went away and we’ve got a number of articles that talk about this
and we’ll put those in the links so this could be a big breakthrough here if this
works but remember want to make sure that you understand that this medication
has never worked in vivo so we don’t know if it’s gonna work so
what they’re planning on doing here coming up very shortly is they’re
actually going to undergo a trial in China where they give some people
placebo and they give others this REM death bear and see whether or not it
works we should know by the end of April whether or not this thing is going to
work now as you can imagine this has caused some store the company is Gilead
that makes this and I’m sure if you look at their stock prices that are probably
going up in the hopes that this thing works and that the epidemic can be
abated so the other drug that they looked at in the same letter to the
editor in that study was chloroquine now chloroquine is been around for a
very long time it’s a generic medication it’s been used in malaria for years in
fact so much so that you actually have chloroquine resistant areas they also
found that this worked really well as well so how does that work well you’ve
got the cell you’ve got the virus there’s a special pH that these
lysosomes have to be before these things can merge and what chloroquine does is
it raises the pH of those lysosomes preventing these things from merging so
it’s possible that you could prevent viral particles from infecting other
cells and now these are just two drugs that are being looked at there’s the pen
aver and Ratana ver these are other medications that are being used in fact
these were used in Thailand and they were thought to improve the problem is
with any of these medications that are used for compassionate use if you use
them and the patient gets better you don’t know if that was the reason why
they got better or if it was some other reason they got better that’s why you
need to do a randomized placebo-controlled trial okay so this is

In any case, Gilead is trying to do trials n get it ready by March – but this Chinese maneuver sent Gilead's stocks down by 2%+ n possibly constraint its efforts.

    I'm not a scientist or doctor, but if you give the Gilead medicine to someone and they live, why is that not in vivo ? If you mean they need to do more live tests with living people, say that. Also, I'm pretty sure if they use this in China on live dying people and it works, it wont take until April to figure this out. Pretty sure they will be able to tell pretty quickly.

  • Reply T Sclly February 5, 2020 at 8:37 pm

    Remdesivir stops cell multiplication via RNA-DNA duplication.. meanwhile the viral load (diminishing) is still there waiting for this stop load to be discontinued.. abet the virus by trying to multiply slowly destroy its self .. but like in AIDS this is an 'on then off' type treatment and can be dependent on the viral load.. rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat…. Chloriquine is a stopgap method that slows the rate of infection to a tolerable level and when this stuff get into a resting mode in like the bone marrow cells, the treatment has to be repeated whenever there is a 'flare-up' and is another 'rinse and repeat' type treatment. My sister gets malarial flare ups. You get the picture. Drug company stocks should be doing well with this.

A few people are already wearing masks, and I live in a suburban city of 150k. Meanwhile, my hometown, with a population of 500K and a huge foreign population, hasn't even mentioned coronavirus in any form, either tv radio or email. My neighborhood Wally World has run out of all types of masks, and even Tyvek suits. I don't think its scalpers, just preppers and concerned families. I have a trip to LAX the 10th of February. If the official number of cases is 100k (1M actual), you bet your ass I'm donning my full kit before I step out of the car.

    I always have a huge bottle of medical grade iodine with me whenever I get sick. Once my husband vomited, had diarrhea, fever, and was overly dehydrated..he almost had to go to the hospital. It was one of the scariest experiences to witness him like that. Then when I rubbed some of that iodine under his feet his temperature instantly got lower and fever disappeared in a few hours. Ever since that experience we always will have that bottle as an emergency. It's always done something significant especially slowing down the aggression of flu symptoms and helping our bodies cope. I wonder what potential it could have on people with coronavirus as this is stocked in every hospital for surgical use! In Latin America they are sold in stores where people can just go in and just buy them. I don't know why I hadn't seen this before in USA, maybe only very low grade for internal use. But this external medical grade one is the strongest antibiotic I ever experienced and also helped with pain at the same time. I think more people should have access to having emergency kits so people do not flood in hospitals in panic and complete exhaustion right away. It's hard for me to know if drugs work or is placebo as it takes longer as well sometimes so I always resort to iodine first the moment I feel I get symptoms… its always my first line of defense..

    I can believe that Remdesivir can combat the nCov in vitro, but just want to say take a pinch of salt with their results. The same lab just announced a few days ago a Chinese traditional herbal medicine works on the same virus in vitro with an overnight result, which sparked a huge scandal on their background. They also claimed that the same herbal medicine works for SARS, Alzheimer, and that vaginal wash works on SARS back in 2003….

    Dr Seheult, please do mention that your baseline numbers directly reflect known and reliably reported numbers, and that naturally there are always other cases in a pandemic which likely simply are not making it into the database for statistical analytics. The lack of data reporting was one additional factor enabling the 2014 Ebola outbreak got out of hand, as teams searched they simply weren't able to cover all areas and in several instances simply did not /could not get the currently infected patients located and identified. Now with Cov19 entering pandemic proportions, many cases are known to be getting sent home/away untreated and are thus uncounted.

    What you guys need to understand is that people who die of the virus before they could get tested for it, are not registered as confirmed deaths. These are the majority of deaths. There are thousands of deaths. Just look at the footage of all the funeral workers describing how the crematoriums are full. Buses carrying 10 bodies each, 15 buses per day. Dead bodies lying all over the streets. And the scary thing is that the clamp down on info is so tight in China, we are only seeing a fraction of the deaths. Imagine what the true number is? This is a lot more horrifying than most of you know. It can’t be contained now either. Buckle up.

    Did you know this: Cat AIDS, a Coronavirus, also known as felien immunodeficiency virus, is a disease in cats, other cats and hyenas. It is a retrovirus that was first described in the United States in 1986. Worldwide, 11% of cats are now infected.

    Apparently a twitter profile going by @Taiwannews886 just posted a leaked photo of Tencent accidentally posting actual confirmed infected, recovery and death rates before changing them a few moments after. Alot of people say that this explains why they're building three new hospitals on the spot, the quarantine and the leaked videos inside the quarantine that has been going around the internet lately. Others are saying that this might be photo shopped. I lean more towards the former, I would like to see a video of some sort to see if this is the case as I do not know how to use inspect element.

    The 80 year old man spread the virus by talking to one couple and then from there the others were infected by talking to that couple.

    By the way, there are 2 cruise ships that are quarantined. There is one is HK.

    If I may ask. How, if at all does pneumonia vaccines help prevent pneumonia should one become ill with this virus?? I have had two different pneumonia vaccinations some time back. Thanks

    493 deaths / 906 recovered is 54% Why are we using # infected as the denominator to determine mortality rate? Those infected have not recovered yet and have also not died. It seems to me that we are using apples and oranges to mathematically compute mortality rate which looks better on paper and prevents panic??

    You believe those numbers?

  • Reply Axel Endriss February 5, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    still didn't got it why it's expected that the expotential growth should end. Yes, eventually the virus starves because it can't find exponential more new victims. I would appreciate if this could be quantified and explained also in numbers.

    instead of using chloroquin on wuhan patients why not just use chloroFORM then they wont feel a thing!

    I think some information on different types of face protective masks would be useful, especially in Asia as they seem to have the perception that surgical masks are 100% effective solution for viral infection.
