Mechanistic analysis of Azithromycin

June 19, 2020COVID-19, Vizit Graphs

Azithromycin is being tested in COVID-19 patients. Although it is a potent antibiotic, in the COVID-19 setting, it likely acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. Its exact MoA in the disease, however, remains to be elucidated. Explore the live graph.

Administration of vitamin D could help fight COVID-19

June 19, 2020COVID-19, Vizit Graphs

Vitamin D supplementation has been shown to protect against SARS-COV-2 infection, and could be particularly helpful for patients that exhibit shortage of vitamin D (e.g. seniors, immunocompromised patients) leading to complications such as cardiovascular comorbidities. This graph explains the mechanism of action of vitamin D in COVID-19 via key genes implicated. Explore the live graph.

Lopinavir/Ritonavir mechanism of action analysis in COVID-19

June 19, 2020COVID-19, Vizit Graphs

Lopinavir/Ritonavir (Kaletra) is a combination of the antivirals Lopinavir and Ritonavir, that were originally designed to inhibit HIV from replicating by binding to the protease. Similarly, it has been postulated that the drug could also bind to the protease of SARS-CoV-2. The drug is currently being tested for the treatment of COVID-19. Explore the live … Read More

Possibly implicated genes in SARS-CoV-2-mediated blood vessel disease

June 19, 2020COVID-19, Vizit Graphs

In addition to respiratory symptoms, novel findings have shown vascular complications in a series of patients with COVID-19, suggesting that COVID-19 is more to a respiratory infection caused by SARS-CoV-2. This graph illustrates some of the possible mechanisms (genes) by which these effects of SARS-CoV-2 may be mediated. Explore the live graph.
