Sesderma, a Spanish company specializes in Nanotechnology, has managed to produce an effective drug named Lactyferrin (LF) to counter the COVID-19 strain. Lactyferrin (LF) is known to exhibit medicinal properties and strengthen the immune system. Since the COVID-19 strain targets immuno-compromised people, LF can turn out to be a very potent medicine against the disease.
Dr Gabriel Serrano Sanmiguel, CEO and Founder, Sesderma Laboratories said: “More than 75 patients affected by COVID-19 have been successfully treated to date with moderate to severe clinical features. Seeing the effectiveness of the medicine, the Madrid local authority has asked for the use of Lactyferrin as well. It has been also proven by us that from certain doses Lactyferrin can prevent COVID-19 infection. In addition, we have contributed to the success of compassionate treatments with Lactyferrin in at least 4 intubated hospitalized patients with high-risk and virtually evicted analytical signs.”
He added: “The sheer scale on which this catastrophe has encompassed the world has brought us to a point where we desperately need a cure for this disease and looking at the test results and patient response, I believe Lactyferrin can help shift the tide in our favour.”
Recently, Sesderma contacted the Health Minister of India, Dr Harsh Vardhan of India about the effectiveness of Lactyferrin against COVID-19, and how it has been successful in completely curing 75 patients. He directed Sesderma to share this solution with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). Sesderma has approached ICMR via mail and mentioned that ICMR may conduct its own trial to verify the effectiveness Lactyferrin. For this noble cause, Sesderma has volunteered to support ICMR with 30 to 40 patients. Large scale production of LF is already underway, and once it gets its green flag from the ICMR, we finally might have an effective solution to end the pandemic.
