Man alive, it seems like every day brings forth new information. Here is a short discussion about a drug that is showing a great deal of promise in wiping out this Covid deal. In fact it is so effective that it has moved into legitimate stage 2 trials. I am going to do this one for the drive by types that like it short and to the point. In the #5 essay I will cover this same thing but in a different format. There is so much information on this general arena of parasites that I really need to do several essays to just touch the edge of this one.
I read an article today about how this one particular drug, Disulfiram, is being repurposed for use against COVID 19. OK, cool. But did you know that this drug is what they call the drug for drunks? What it basically does is if the person is on this drug, and they drink some alcohol, it immediately gives the drunk a hang over from hell. They use this drug for alcohol abuse treatment. Even though it is an "old" drug and the second choice/go to drug, it is still currently used.
What they have discovered is that it, well here is the information from Pub med.
Antiviral Res. 2018 Feb; 150: 155–163.
Published online 2017 Dec 28. doi: 10.1016/j.antiviral.2017.12.015
Disulfiram can inhibit MERS and SARS coronavirus papain-like proteases via different modes.
This drug is also used as an anti-parasite drug in targeting the protozoans; Leishmania, Trypanosoma, Toxoplasma, and the severe diarrhea-causing Entamoeba histolytica. A side note here, this E.histolytica is also an infection that is rated as a STD among men having sex with men. The Trypanosoma is very wicked one. In some of the cases it makes a person's heart look like it has been run through a paper shredder, then the person dies. Toxoplasma is a really bad one. It is a parasite that can exert mind control over the host, it also contributes to schizophrenia. Who would have thought that a drug for drunks would do so much? Oh the Leishmania... they use Antimony ore to treat that one. They have done so for several thousand of years. This is the one parasite that people coming home from the sand box will usually be carrying.
They also use this drug for HIV and several cancers.
What is comical is that it is simply a form of organic Sulfur. Plain old sulfur. Eat your onions, and a lot of them, and make sure they are hotter the better. Garlic also helps and is just as effective. But if you don't like smelling like an onion or like Garlic, then eat a lot of Grapefruit, I mean a lot of it too! Who knows? This stuff might just do the job.
Anyway, this stuff is exciting to me. LOL> KK
