Combat COVID-19 with the natural compound OSW-1!?

Oxysterol-binding Protein (OSBP), required for the cellular replication of many types of viruses can be inhibited by the natrual compound (OSW-1). The OSW-1 induced reduction of OSBP inhibit Enterovirus replication prophylactically in cells. These are the findings published in Antiviral Research 117 (2015) 110-114 and Antiviral Research 170 (2019) 104548. We assume, that COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) […]
