There is currently a suggestion that the drug KALETRA is effective against COVID 19, or at least has some benefits for people infected with COVID 19.
Because a number of people who are concerned about the COVID 19 virus have contacted me for assistance in buying generic KALETRA I have decided to publish a little information about the treatment of COVID 19 with KALETRA and what the costs of buying generic KALETRA are.
Because there is no vaccine or a proven cure for coronavirus, medicos are looking to repurpose existing drugs that are known to be safe in humans, such as KALETRA.
So with my normal disclaimer that I am not a doctor here is what will be helpful for you to know:
KALETRA is a combination of two antiviral medications Lopinavir 200 mg and Ritonavir 50 mg. Lopinavir and Ritonavir are both antiviral protease inhibitors typically used in HIV, including post-exposure prophylaxis (lopinavir is the actual antiviral agent, with ritonavir functioning to inhibit metabolism of lopinavir, thereby boosting levels of lopinavir).
The reason that people a trying Kaletra against COVID 19 is because it was used in the SARS-CoV 1 outbreak. In vitro, Lopinavir/Ritonavir has activity against SARS-COV-1 and functions synergistically with ribavirin. The suggestion is that adding ribavirin increases Lopinavir’s potency by about 400%.
SARS-COV 1 shares about 80 to 90% of the same genetic make up as COVID 19.
Kaletra (which is also called Aluvia) is made by the USA pharmaceutical company AbbVie. AbbVie donated Kaletra/ Aluvia to China in January for experimental use against the new viral disease. According to Chinese media reports, Kaletra / Aluvia has been effective against Covid-19.
The company adds that it lacks access to Chinese clinical information to confirm the accuracy of these reports.
According to the Daily Mail a team of scientists at the University of Queensland in Australia says they have seen Kaletra wipe out COVID-19 infections.
The scientists say that lopinavir/ritonavir have both reportedly shown promising results in human tests and made the virus ‘disappear’ in infected patients.
From the Daily Mail:
Professor Paterson said it wouldn’t be wrong to consider the drugs a possible ‘treatment or cure’ for the deadly respiratory infection.
He explained that when the HIV medication lopinavir/ritonavir was given to people infected with the coronavirus in Australia it led to the ‘disappearance of the virus’.
He told Australian news site news.com.au: ‘It’s a potentially effective treatment.
‘Patients would end up with no viable coronavirus in their system at all after the end of the therapy.’
Although the treatment had been effective in a smattering of cases, there hasn’t been any controlled testing like what would be needed to test a new drug, Professor Paterson said.
Recently there was also a study in Singapore of people infected with COVID 19 who were treated with KALETRA ( Lopinavir + Ritonavir)
The study describes 18 patients with COVID-19 who overall did well after receiving treatment with Lopinavir/Ritonavir. Only one patient with COVID 19 required intubation and there were no deaths.
