Chloroquine And Hydroxychloroquine - A Ray Of Hope

It is evident; there are no specific drugs for COVID-19. Scientists and researchers around the globe are leaving no stone unturned to find a cure for deadly coronavirus. Also, the entire human race for the first time in the history of civilization are yearning to hear “COVID 19 can be treated”.

Thousands are dying, millions are in isolation, hospitals staff and doctors are overloaded with work, world leaders are trying their best to lead the nations and protect people and trillions are under lockdown. The current situation forces us to feel that is this the end of human civilization?

Amidst such grim situation, USFDA has given us a ray of hope. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said in a statement that chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine could be prescribed to teens and adults with COVID-19 "as appropriate, when a clinical trial is not available or feasible," after the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization.

Originally, Chloroquine was first used as prophylaxis and treatment for malaria. Hydroxychloroquine is a more soluble and less toxic metabolite of chloroquine, which causes less side effects and is safer.

Malarial is a parasitic infection and viral and parasitic infections are quite different. However, scientists believe that the chloroquines can change the acidity at the surface of the cell, thereby preventing the virus from infecting it.

Some of the forms of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are listed below:

Product Name Cas No.
Hydroxychloroquin 118-42-3
Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate 747-36-4
