Published review in Spandidos Publications’ International Journal of Molecular Medicine showed Zinc possesses antiviral activity through inhibition of SARS‑CoV RNA polymerase and decreases activity of ACE2, the receptor for SARS‑CoV‑2

Published review in Spandidos Publications’ International Journal of Molecular Medicine showed Zinc possesses antiviral activity through inhibition of SARS‑CoV RNA polymerase and  decreases activity of ACE2, the receptor for SARS‑CoV‑2

A review, “Zinc and respiratory tract infections: Perspectives for COVID‑19” published in Spandidos Publications’ International Journal of Molecular Medicine has shown compelling evidence that Zinc (Zn) possesses antiviral activity through inhibition of SARS‑CoV RNA polymerase. Indirect evidence also indicates that Zinc may decrease the activity of angiotensin‑converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), known to be the receptor for […]
