The First Thing
Numerous clinical tests of chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 treatment are underway or will be enrolling soon. THE GLOBE Health Organization’s large international SOLIDARITY trial will look at both of these drugs along with Kaletra (by themselves or in combination with interferon-beta) and Gilead Sciences’ experimental antiviral remdesivir. Researchers and clinicians rely on the type of research identified above to make educated and safe tips for patient health care. We will usually use our patients to optimize their condition and will suggest alternative medications to keep them healthy. Since the above study was published, additional, stronger drugs have become available, and these have been added to medication regimens to accomplish better control of lupus and RA than ever before.
