Current advancements on Covid-19 potential treatments: Learning from literature review
The coronavirus disease hit the world in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. A lot of developments towards the treatment of the disease have risen but no therapy has been scientifically proven successful up to date. However, regardless of current vaccines under clinical trials, much attention has been brought to repurposing old drugs as thousands of studies discuss their potential effectiveness against COVID-19. The present review discusses recent advancements in possible novel treatment and preventive therapeutics that are in ongoing trials. All the reviewed therapeutics in this article, regardless of their promising outcomes on the treatment and prophylaxis of COVID-19, have demonstrated no support to their efficacy regardless of other therapeutics such as convalescent plasma which has shown some potentiality for use. However, all the discussed interventions need thorough drug repositioning and advanced trial levels for them to be proved ready for clinical use.
