Created a new method of treating covid using a substance from human skin cells

(ORDO NEWS) — As part of a new study, experts from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the University of California, Los Angeles (USA) found that a biological substance from human skin cells can stop the spread of coronavirus in the body.

Specialists from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the University of California at Los Angeles (USA) found that a special biological substance created from human skin cells can prevent the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It is this virus that is known to cause covid.

In addition, the resulting compound had another function: it protected the infected cells. Testing is still ongoing and the study itself is at an early stage. However, it can already be assumed that this method will be effective in the fight against COVID-19. All data obtained during the study were published in Biomaterials and Biosystems.

Unlike other treatments for COVID-19, newly infected (that is, infected) cells are restored and also protected.

The substance created by the researchers is called ASTEX. For its development, skin cells – dermal fibroblasts – were used.

The study found that ASTEX does not allow cells to start the process of inflammation, leading to the death of these cells. In addition, cells treated with the new substance produced less of the ACE protein, which the virus can use to infect body cells.
