Japan's Avigan or Favipiravir or Favilavir Medicine, Gamot sa COVID19?

Japan Prime Minister Abe:

“A few dozen cases of Avigan reported improvement in administration symptoms."
“Expanded clinical research and started increasing drug production."
On the other hand, the National Medical Products Administration of China has approved the use of Avigan or Favipiravir or Favilavir, an anti-viral drug, as a treatment for coronavirus. The drug has reportedly shown efficacy with minimal side effects in a clinical trial involving hundreds of patients in China and Japan.

Abe says Japan aims to approve Avigan as coronavirus treatment. The government will also begin trial procedures aimed at winning approval for the anti-flu drug Avigan as a treatment for the coronavirus, Abe said. Avigan was developed by Japanese company Fujifilm Holdings.

The drug has already shown signs of being effective in relieving symptoms after being administered in dozens of cases, Abe said, adding it has attracted interest from many countries. Japan "will proceed with clinical research in cooperation" with other countries and will start increasing production soon.

AVIGAN, to be approved as a formal coronavirus medicine

Ayon sa news na ito, naglabas ng pahayag ang Prime Minister ng Japan kahapon March 28 na inihahanda na nila sa ngayon ang clinical process na dapat gawin upang formally na maaprobahan ang AVIGAN bilang gamot sa coronavirus.

Nais nilang isagawa ito matapos na makatanggap sila ng maraming report mula rin sa ibang bansa na meron din itong effect upang magamot ang mga pasyente. Ang AVIGAN daw ay effective to avoid propagation, growth or breeding of coronavirus sa loob ng katawan ng pasyente. Meron din itong side effect kung kayat hindi ito ginagamit na formal medicine laban sa influenza.

Nais din nilang isagawa ang mass production nito sa lalong madaling panahon matapos lumabas ang formal approval ng Japan government.

Para naman sa vaccine ng coronavirus, wala pang natutuklasan dito. Subalit ang Japan government ay nakikipag coordinate ngayon sa mga medical university at mga private pharma company upang lalong mapabilis na matuklasan ang mabisang vaccine sa nasabing virus.
