It is rightly said 'Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures'

As cases from the coronavirusare relentlessly mounting into hundreds and thousands again and there is a hush-hush on the third Covid wave across the world, scientists are desperate to solve the deadly conundrum of COVID-19 as the world is clamouring for fast answers and solutions.

Doctors and Researchers are frantically experimenting with medicines for stroke, heartburn, blood clots, gout, depression, inflammation, AIDS, hepatitis, cancer, arthritis and even stem cells and radiation to help in fighting the deadly virus.

As the world once again reels under the massive surge of Covid-19 cases in the third wave of the pandemic, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for Merck’s Molnupiravir for the treatment of mild-to-moderate coronavirus disease in adults. Although, Molnupiravir is not a substitute for vaccination in individuals for whom COVID-19 vaccination and a booster dose are recommended.


Molnupiravir an orally administered antiviral drug which was initially developed to treat influenza can significantly decrease novel coronavirus levels in hamsters, holding out promise of a pill to combat COVID-19, say researchers.

Taking into consideration the current pandemic scenario, it is believed that these findings are likely to help physicians develop appropriate treatment strategies among evolving evidence for COVID-19 management

In order to bestow a part of its contribution towards medical parlancePharmaffiliates Analytics and Synthetics Pvt. Ltd is offering a wide range of Reference material of Molnupiravir in the form of API, impurities, metabolites, intermediates, Stable isotopes etc. Here is a list of offerings which Pharmaffiliates is providing:
