There is one clinical trial.
There is currently no clinically proven specific antiviral agent available for SARS-CoV-2 infection. Supportive treatment, including oxygen therapy, remains the most important management strategy. Since its discovery, lactoferrin and its related peptides are mainly considered to be important non-specific host defense molecules against a broad range of viruses including SARS-CoV, which is closely related to SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19. Lactoferrin has been found to experimentally inhibit viral entry in murine coronavirus, and human coronaviruses hCOV-NL63 and pseudotyped SARS-CoV. Besides reducing viral entry, lactoferrin can also suppress virus replication after the viral entry. Another major aspect of lactoferrin bioactivity relates to its immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory functions. Current thinking suggests that mortality from COVID-19 is not simply due to viral infection but is a result of a cytokine storm associated with hyper-inflammation leading to acute respiratory distress and subsequent mortality. A cytokine profile in severe COVID-19 cases is characterized by increases in cytokines and acute phase reactants and ferritin. In this regard, lactoferrin was demonstrated to reduce IL-6, TNF a, and downregulate ferritin in experimental settings simulating sepsis. In this study, we aim to study the potential application of lactoferrin against SARS-CoV-2 and propose the possibility of using different doses of supplemental lactoferrin as a potential adjunct treatment for COVID-19.

An HTML report was created for each of the unique drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms associated with COVID-19 clinical trials. Each report contains a list of either the drug, the MeSH terms, or the HPO terms. All of the terms in a category are displayed on the left-hand side of the report to enable easy navigation, and the reports contain a list of correlated drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms. Further, all reports contain the details of the clinical trials in which the term is referenced. Every clinical trial report shows the mapped HPO and MeSH terms, which are also hyperlinked. Related HPO terms, with their associated genes, protein mutations, and SNPs are also referenced in the report.Drug Reports MeSH Reports HPO Reports
