Coronavirus: Hungarian Scientist Develops Medication against Cytokine Storm
MTI-Hungary Today 2020.05.06.
A US-based Hungarian immunologist has developed a medication he says could prevent the cytokine storm, an overreaction of the immune system. This kind of immune response can be triggered in Covid-19 patients.
In an interview published in the daily Magyar Nemzet on Wednesday, Lajos Baranyi said the cytokine storm caused severe and possibly lethal pneumonia due to an overproduction of peptides with toxic breakdown products.
The recently developed therapy involves a complex drug currently in the process of being patented which would be administered intravenously or injected, Baranyi said.
