Researchers develop roadmap for effective treatment of COVID-19


-Virus disrupts health services for NCDs, says WHO- As Nigerian scientists make progress in vaccines, seek assistanceA team of United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) researchers have developed a roadmap for effective treatment of COVID-19, outlining key immunological events capable of accelerating from protective to a hyper-inflammatory response leading to life-threatening conditions. The researchers reviewed all of the COVID-19 clinical and research findings to date. They provided a breakdown of key immunological factors underlying the clinical stages of COVID-19 illness that could potentially be targeted by existing therapeutic drugs. Meanwhile, a group of Nigerian scientists from different institutions coordinated by Vice-Chancellor, Precious Cornerstone University (PCU), Ibadan, Professor Kola Oloke, has developed two potential vaccines that could prevent coronavirus pandemic. “After trying out some selected processes of vaccine development, we have been able to choose the best potential vaccine candidates for the SARS-CoV-2 and they have made the possible latent vaccine constructs.”
