New Data Suggests Possible Efficacy of QuadraMune® in Treatment of COVID-19 “Brain Fog”
Therapeutic Solutions International announced today filing of a new patent covering data demonstrating QuadraMune administration reduces cognitive decline caused by administration of COVID-19 spike protein in mice.
In a series of experiments, mice were treated with artificially generated spike protein on a daily basis for 7 days in order to mimic infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19 disease. One group of mice received saline and two groups received a low and high dose of QuadraMune, a fourth group of mice received no treatment. Significant dose dependent preservation of cognitive activity was observed in mice receiving QuadraMune. Additionally, reduction of microglial activation, a sign of neural inflammation was reported.
QuadraMune is an immune modulating nutraceutical whose use in treatment of COVID-19 is covered by issued US Patent #11,229,674.
“The more we learn about COVID-19 brain after-effects, the more we see a consistent pattern of inflammatory cytokines and inflammatory cells eliciting changes that cause chronic brain degeneration,” said Dr. Thomas Ichim, Board Member of Therapeutic Solutions International and Co-Inventor of the patent. “We are enthusiastic about the current data, which shows preservation of brain function and reduction of inflammation. This data suggests the possibility of offering a nutraceutical approach to COVID-19 patients to protect their brains.”
COVID-19 associated brain changes have been shown to cause severe damage in certain individuals. In one recent peer reviewed study, COVID-19 brain pathology was shown to be similar to Alzheimer’s Disease1.
“We are only now beginning to see the long-term consequences of COVID-19 infection. We believe that the potent anti-inflammatory and neuroregenerative effects of QuadraMune may be particularly useful in leveraging the body’s own mechanisms to mediate post-infection healing,” said Timothy Dixon, President and CEO of the Company.
