COVID-19 treatment might already exist in old drugs

The good news is that so far, our team has found 69 existing drugs that bind the human proteins we’ve identified. 27 of these are FDA approved, and 42 are in clinical or pre-clinical trials. This large number makes me hopeful that we’ll be able to find a drug to treat COVID-19. If we find an approved drug that even slows down the virus’s progression, doctors should be able to start getting it to patients quickly and save lives.
