Our pilot study about safety of using traditional Chinese medicine for COVID-19 patients started last week with the first participant. The compound used in this study was used in Wuhan when the pandemic hit hard there. It is designed to prevent patients from developing into severe cases. Now we want to see if it is safe for people in the US, and potentially in other places, and if a larger study is feasible.
COVID-19 pandemic is still not much better than several months before and there are always the next waves looming there. Hopefully we will have more effective and cheaper treatments available.
