very cheap and long-known drugs help save the lungs with coronavirus

Cloving hospital on the basis of the Medical Scientific and Educational Center (ISSC) Moscow State University named after M.V.Lomonosov took the first patients on April 21 and completed his work on June 13. It turned out that it was possible to achieve the best treatment results for COVID-19 in Moscow. Over the entire period, 4 patients died, and among severe patients who got mechanical ventilation, the mortality rate was less than 14% (for comparison, the average for the city and the world was up to 70 – 80%). Eighteen doctors out of 220 employees of the hospital were infected with coronavirus, there were no deaths among the medical staff.

What approaches were used at the University Hospital of Moscow State University to achieve such results? We continue the conversation with the head. Department of Therapy, Faculty of Fundamental Medicine, Moscow State University, Head of the Department of Age-Associated Diseases, Medical Scientific and Educational Center, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Cardiologist Yana Orlova.

MEDICINE FOR COUGH FOR 80 RUBLES

– Most of those who are ill or are afraid to get sick are worried about fibrotic changes in their lungs. They say that you have developed special therapy that can reduce the risk of developing fibrosis. Is it possible?!

– Yes, we launched an appropriate clinical study. There are no final results yet, but we have developed clinical practice.

“What did you do to save the lungs?”

– We used a combination of bromhexine and spironolactone (both are long-known very cheap drugs. – Ed.). Bromhexine is an expectorant that has been prescribed to patients with pneumonia and cough for many years. At the same time, experimental data showed that this drug can block a specific enzyme and impede the penetration of coronavirus into cells. True, it was on this effect that we counted to a lesser extent in inpatients, since such an effect is important mainly in the early stages of the disease. But the expectorant effect of bromhexine really helps patients with COVID. I heard that our colleagues in Peter launched a study of bromhexine for prophylactic purposes. We will wait for the results.

FIBROSIS OBSTACLE

– The second drug – spironolactone – is traditionally widely used in cardiology for the treatment of heart failure, severe hypertension. It has a small diuretic, magnesium and potassium-preserving effect, continues Yana. Orlova. – It has several mechanisms through which it can be useful in coronavirus infection.

Firstly, a mechanism that prevents the development of fibrosis in general in the body. There are works that, in particular, show that spironolactone reduces fibrosis in the heart. At the same time, it is known that the tendency to fibrosis is not local, but systemic – where there is more inflammation, there will certainly be fibrosis. And we see, of course, fibrotic changes in the “covide” in our patients. Therefore, we prescribed spironolactone as a drug for the prevention of this process.

Secondly, this drug blocks sex hormone receptors, in particular testosterone. Some published studies suggest that “high-testosterone” men suffer from “covid” more often and develop more severe fibrotic changes. Therefore, blocking these receptors for several weeks during COVID treatment may be useful in reducing the severity of complications. We are not talking about a longer intake, since male patients are unlikely to agree with a decrease in testosterone levels in the long term.

And perhaps the most important point. In almost all of our patients, we observed hypokalemia (a decrease in potassium levels. – Ed.). With coronavirus infection, potassium is intensely excreted from the body, and scientific articles even suggest that hypokalemia serves as the trigger for a cytokine storm. So spironolactone has a real chance to reduce the risk of this dangerous complication. But the main thing, in my opinion, is that lowering the level of potassium in the body is extremely harmful to the heart and triggers life-threatening rhythm disturbances, increasing the risk of sudden death. We, like all others, replenished potassium with droppers, but it was more effective to retain it in the body with the help of spironolactone.

WHEN PRESCRIBED PATIENTS

– Yana Arturovna, how many patients did you have on average?

– About 10 – 14 days. But someone and 50 days.

– Have you noticed signs by which it can be assumed that the disease in the person brought is likely to go the hard way?

– Such studies were carried out in the world, our clinical practice confirmed them. Men certainly get worse than women; the elderly are heavier than the young; overweight people are heavier than overweight patients. Men with a classic male type of baldness, a lot of facial hair, we can say brutal men get sick harder.

– Under what conditions did you discharge patients?

– We acted as close as possible to the recommendations Ministry of Health: so that the temperature for three days was not higher than 37.5 degrees; so that C-reactive protein (an indicator of inflammation) is lower than 10 mg / l, and saturation, that is, the level of oxygen in the blood, is higher than 96%.

“HEAD OF EPIDEMIOLOGY DEPARTMENT OF ITSELF WORKED AT SANPROPUSNIK”

– How often do you get sick doctors and nurses?

– In the first month no one got sick at all. We have a very powerful epidemiological service. The head of the sanitary-epidemiological department, a senior researcher, correctly organized the whole process, and for the first two weeks she personally worked in the sanitary inspection room at the exit from the “red zone” and helped doctors and nurses who were exhausted after the shift safely remove protective clothing.

Then both people’s fatigue and viral load accumulated. By the middle of the second month, sick people began to appear. There were no seriously ill patients. We treated part of the staff in our observation, part of it was treated at home. In total, 18 people were infected from the medical staff (less than 10%).

– Doctors take something for prevention? Vitamins C, D, Zinc?

– I saw the recommendations of American nutritionists, they speak out positively about taking zinc, melatonin and vitamin C. There were somewhat conflicting data on vitamin D. But we did not give any such recommendations to our employees. We have all the prevention was associated with minimizing contacts and other measures of epidemiological safety.

Physicians are the heroes of our time.“If you think that you are special and that a pandemic will not affect you, you are deeply mistaken,” listen to what the doctors who are fighting with coronavirus say

World Data i

According to the latest relevant information from Johns Hopkins University, over 2.54 million infections have been detected in the United States. 125.8 thousand people died. The country accounts for about a quarter of all cases of infection and deaths detected in the world. Over 30 thousand people died in New York.

Hazard noted that in some states, primarily in the southern, the spread of the virus continues to increase. According to him, there quarantine measures were too early there contrary to the rules established at the federal level. The latter provide for the possibility of moving to the second phase of lifting restrictions only after the number of detected cases has been reduced in the state for two weeks.

The Florida Department of Health reported June 8,530 new cases per day. And an infectious disease doctor at a Tampa Florida hospital, Kami Kim told FT that the number of such patients doubled in a couple of weeks. The number of new cases is growing rapidly in Arizona, Texas, Florida and South Carolina.

According to CNN on June 28, only two out of 50 states reported a decrease in the growth of new cases of coronavirus, these are Connecticut and Rhode Island. In 36 states, the number of patients is only increasing. CNN, like FT, points out that a particularly difficult situation has developed in Florida, which could become a new epicenter of the spread of infection.

Azar said that the reason for this may be too hasty lifting of restrictions, confirmed the former head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Tom Frieden. According to him, mortality has not yet reached a peak and at least 15 thousand people may become victims of infection in the country next month.

Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo said that the ongoing increase in the number of cases of coronavirus in the US is not the second wave of the epidemic, but the failure of attempts to contain the first wave. According to the FT, he uses such statements to criticize the Donald Trump administration. The actions of the White House are actively criticized by the Democrats. So, the team of Joe Biden, the rival of Trump in the upcoming presidential election, called the trip of Vice President Michael Pence to Texas, where the unfavorable situation continues, a demonstration of the “dismissive attitude that the administration showed towards solving this crisis from the very beginning.”

Coronavirus pandemic. The most relevant on June 28

At the end of last week, June 27, Reuters reported the maximum daily increase in the number of patients in the United States since the start of the epidemic: 40,870 new cases of coronavirus infection.

Over the past 24 hours in Russia because of the coronavirus COVID-19 died 95 people. It is reported by the operational headquarters for the fight against the virus.

Of this number, most of the deaths recorded in Saint-Petersburg — 29. Another 20 people died in Moscow, six in the Kamchatka region, three in Dagestan.

For the entire period of the pandemic in Russia, died 8 206 people. The mortality rate among all Russian regions in the first place is Moscow, where the total number of victims has increased to 3617. After the capital is Saint Petersburg with 869 dead, the suburbs (783), Dagestan (351) and the Nizhny Novgorod region (201).

According to the operational headquarters, for the last day in the country coronavirus have been identified in the 7600 people. Most identified for day cases was registered in Moscow — 1068. Behind her is the suburbs (506), Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug (295), Nizhny Novgorod oblast (219) and St. Petersburg (217).

In total in Russia there are now 280 of 592 cases of infection with coronavirus COVID-19.

The second wave COVID-19 can bring “tragic” deaths

Doctors, representatives of authorities of most countries and experts are sure: the world and Russia is waiting for the second wave of the coronavirus with due to quarantines, restrictions, closure of borders. The only question is, what will be the mortality in this new tsunami. As social networks go to various quotes with forecasts of between 1% and 35% to almost 90% of cases.

The main questions are three:

  • whether there will be a lethal mutation (for example, jointly with the flu, infecting tens of millions of inhabitants of the Earth);
  • how to continue to be the economies of different countries;
  • what behavior to choose ordinary people in the case of “easiest” and “hardest” of the second wave of coronavirus.

Known in Japan infectious disease physician Akihiro Sato said the probability of a second wave of coronavirus infection is approximately 90%.

A similar opinion is shared by representatives of the world medical community and the authorities in Russia and abroad, and virologists, including the military. Moreover, some media suggest that the “second wave” of coronavirus has already been launched in China and several European States.

When waiting for a second wave of coronavirus

The General opinion is that this attack can come to Russia (even in the case of closed boundaries) from late July-August until late autumn.

“One of the most likely scenarios is the second wave in the period of the rise in acute respiratory viral infections, it is quite possible that coronavirus will rise in the autumn”, — said earlier the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popovaadding that, in her opinion, “the disease in the second wave will be heavy.”


That a new outbreak of the “crown” the country will meet in the autumn, and said Vladimir Putin.

“In the United States predict the coming of the second wave in the winter, during seasonal outbreaks of influenza. And the consequences of the second flash can be stronger than the first, as it will lead to unimaginable burden on the health care system” — warned the Director of the Center for control and prevention of diseases Robert Redfield.

Salvation, in fact, only one — the curethat can defeat the current COVID-19, and mutated (possible) form, and the vaccine must accept all the citizens of all countries of the world.

What could be deaths from the second wave of coronavirus?

Variants a little:

  • Minimum mortality comparable to COVID-19 or less (1-5%).
  • The mortality rate is higher than the COVID-19, but not much (3-10%).
  • High mortality — up to 35% of cases.
  • Tragic pandemic — mortality of more than 50%.

“After the coronavirus we are waiting for this terrible epidemic. The pandemic — only doctrine,” said media chief physician GKB 71 Alexander Butchersadding: “we expect a serious epidemic with a mortality rate of 30-35 percent. The most dangerous place, where the chances to get infected are hospital”.

In his opinion, before the emergence of influenza with a high mortality rate — only two mutations. The first mutation when the virus from pigs or birds will get to the person. And a second mutation when it is transmitted from person to person.

The press also recalls that in November 2019 at the Johns Hopkins University was held a closed-door seminar, which “dismantled” and simulated future epidemic.

According to first estimates, the new “Spanish flu” may be a combination of “swine flu + coronavirus”, which in the experiment occurs in a conditional and Brazil affects two thirds of humanity.

“The loss of 65 million lives and $ 700 billion. This training scenario was played”, — noted journalists.

To believe in the panic posts and quotes from social networks can not

For example, the instant messenger goes to the fake that the doctors are waiting for the second wave of coronavirus with mortality of 90%. This hearing arising from the erroneous perception of the forecast, “the second wave will occur with a probability of 90%” and the widespread video of Thriller, in which the artificially derived coronavirus-weapons can kill 90% of the population.

Also telegram-channel “Smile” reports: evidence that mortality from a mutated coronavirus COVID-19 up to 45% absolutely not supported by any research and (so far) are only the concerns of a number of Chinese experts. The authors refer to Chinese instant messenger WeChat.

“The second wave will be exactly, and in many countries, in remote regions has not ended yet first. Don’t believe those who predict mortality in advance, it’s the people who want the hype and attention. No one knows how to behave “crown” under the vaccine which mutations are possible, as will be combined coronavirus with seasonal diseases such as influenza and SARS,” said virologist-infectious disease Alexandrov.

“We hope that the vaccine would be rapidly developed, universal applied and will not “side effects” that are produced and population immunity and sustain health systems of different countries. But this virus is with us for a long time, if not forever,” he added.

Three ways of salvation from the “second wave”

Also the medic refused to advise any of the strategy, stating that it is not ready to take on this responsibility, but explained that he had heard about the three recovery options from the second wave “, even in the event the high, or tragic fatality”.

The main method is vaccinationthat will help pass the peak incidence with minimal loss. The second method is karantinirovanija cities, regions and countrieswith a rigid, “as in China,” measures of restrictions on contacts between the population.

“As you like to refer to the Soviet Union, but in Soviet times harsh and even cruel measures stopped the epidemic of cholera, smallpox, typhoid. In particular, even Moscow was closed, and contacts for smallpox had been raided and observeability KGB. In the end a terrible epidemic did not happen”, — says the expert.

Option with “escape to the country, in the village enclaves” the medic considers ambiguous. “Suppose a man went to the Crimea and Kaliningrad, which are easily scarantino, limiting air, auto and train message. There are fewer opportunities to become infected, if they manage to quell the first outbreaks, but let’s face it — capital medicine is better, although everywhere have everything “ready,” he said.

“Life in the country or in the village is good, but if you turn down the pump, to fix it will arrive the repairman, who can be a carrier, and meet all be in the same grocery store, village shop, which could be the point spread of the virus.

So if the person is not a prepper with arms where necessary, supply of food and goods for a year and farm — chickens, potatoes, cows, etc. — it will be far enough away from the city of medicine and in the unusual, though more comfortable (than in a small city apartment) conditions,” — said the expert.

“Conclusion. As it silly sounds, but listen to professionals, doctors and government. To comply with sanitary norms. To be ready to quarantine financially and morally. And you know, now is not the Middle ages with the plague, medicine knows a lot of hityk, we are trying to protect themselves and all”, – concluded the doctor.

While economists and financiers, that is, “grab his head”, imagining what a shock, the second wave of the coronavirus with any mortality will cause the Russian (and world) economy. As for business, the economy and ordinary Russians have hit the “first wave”, we all see, and many — unfortunately — on your wallet.

But that’s another story…

Coronavirus, discovered an antibody that reduces mortality: the Italian study

A antibody able to reduce the mortality rate of the new coronavirus and to improve the conditions of the most severely ill patients. A possible new step forward in the road to improving therapies against the Covid comes from a study of’Irccs San Raffaele hospital of Milanpublished on ‘The Lancet Rheumatology’. According to the Italian researchers, the administration of the monoclonal antibody mavrilimumab could reduce the mortality rate of the new coronavirus and at the same time accelerate the improvement of the framework of the respiratory tract in patients with pneumonia from Covid-19, and hyper-inflammation is systemic.

Coronavirus, the Italian study: an antibody reduces mortality

The testing was conducted on 39 patientsalmost all males with mean age 57 years, and is not subject to mechanical ventilation and hospitalized at the San Raffaele hospital between march and April. Mavrilimumab is a medication with immune suppressive action at the time trial against the giant cell arteritis. It works by blocking a molecule called Gm-Csf, that is produced by the immune system and is one of the first links in the chain inflammatory.
