In a peer reviewed paper that is to be published in the June issue of Le Infenzioni In Medicina, the Official Journal of the Italian Society of Infectious and Tropical Diseases, researchers posit that Zinc taken in combination with Hydroxychloroquine can stop Covid-19 in its tracks.
Researchers at the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department of Michigan Technological University (MTU) conclude that Hydroxychloroquine/Chloroquine has the ability to induce the uptake of zinc into the cytosol of the cell, which is capable of inhibiting RNA-dependent RNA polymerase and ultimately halting the replication of coronavirus in the host cell.
The paper goes on to say that "Incidentally, none of these clinical trials
conducted so far has given a near total positive outcome, which is signiﬁcant enough to trigger an endorsement on a global scale. Perhaps, consistent with previous studies that delineated the efﬁcacy of HCQ and CQ as zinc ionophores, it was rather surprising that none of these clinical trials so far considered using a combination of dose depended zinc supplements with HCQ and CQ --administration".
The Researchers conclude that "Since chloroquine has been widely prescribed for use as an anti-malarial, its safety is not in doubt. In view of the foregoing, clinical trials predicated upon a synergistic administration of Zn supplement with CQ or HCQ against the novel SARS-CoV-2 virus should be considered so that better COVID-19 clinical trial outcomes can be obtained going forward."
