Inexperienced tea would possibly assist sort out COVID: Indian-origin researcher | Well being Information


London: As India continues to be ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic, a group of researchers is investigating how inexperienced tea may give rise to a drug able to tackling COVID-19.

The preliminary findings recommended that one of many compounds in inexperienced tea may fight the coronavirus behind COVID-19, stated lead writer Suresh Mohankumar, who researched throughout his time at JSS School of Pharmacy in Ooty earlier than taking over his present position at Swansea College Medical College.

“Nature’s oldest pharmacy has always been a treasure of potential novel drugs and we questioned if any of these compounds could assist us in battling the COVID-19 pandemic?” stated Mohankumar.

“We screened and sorted a library of natural compounds already know to be active against other coronaviruses using an artificial intelligence-aided computer programme,” he added.

Mohankumar emphasised that the analysis was nonetheless in its early days and a good distance from any form of medical software, within the examine printed within the journal RSC Advances.

“The compound that our model predicts to be most active is gallocatechin, which is present in green tea and could be readily available, accessible, and affordable,” the researcher stated.

There now must be additional investigation to indicate if it may be confirmed clinically efficient and secure for stopping or treating COVID-19.

“This is fascinating research and demonstrates that natural products remain an important source of lead compounds in the fight against infectious diseases,” stated Andrew Morris, Professor, Swansea College.

“I am also really pleased to see this international research collaboration continuing now that Mohankumar has joined the Pharmacy team,” Morris added.
