Here’s a pretty interesting paper for all my healthcare bros/broettes. The objective of it is as follows:
“To investigate the efficacy and safety of recombinant human interferon alpha1b (rhIFN-α) nasal drops in healthy medical staff to prevent 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).”
Here’s the pertinent bits:
“In summary, in more than 2,000 susceptible health care workers at large class A tertiary hospitals who were at high and low risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 in Shiyan City, Hubei Province, a COVID-19 epidemic area, a real-world study of the use of IFNα nose drops ith or without thymosin-α 1 as a 28-day intervention shows that low-risk subjects treated with IFN-α nasal drops alone and high-risk subjects treated with IFNα nasal drops combined with thymosin developed zero cases of COVID-19 pneumonia. We believe that recombinant human IFN-α nasal drops can be used as an alternative drug to effectively prevent SARS-CoV-2 virus infection and to protect healthy and susceptible people from viral infection. During the COVID-19 epidemic, recombinant human IFN-α nasal drops could play a complementary role along with vaccines, and they are likely to have a suppressive effect on mutant coronaviruses. In the future, recombinant human IFN-α nasal drops could be developed, and larger-scale clinical studies can be conducted to verify the reventive effect of this broad-spectrum antiviral drug.”
Here’s the paper:
I’ve managed to secure a literal crate of this shit. If any frontline worker dudes/dudettes in Windsor CAN’T get their hands on any via regular means, lemme know. Should be here in ~3 weeks. They’re yours for exactly Free.99 as long as I have them.
