SNBNCBS develops nanomedicine to alter oxidative stress; may help in fight against COVID-19

Scientists at SN Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata (SNBNCBS) have developed a safe and cost-effective nanomedicine that promises treatment of a number of diseases by altering oxidative stress in the body. The research may provide a ray of hope in India’s fight against COVID-19, as the nanomedicine can decrease or increase reactive oxygen species in the body, depending on the situation and cure the disease.

The research on nanomedicines may be effective against viral infection. Recently, the institute has shown that the added oxidative stress upon administration of the nanomedicine can break down bilirubin that causes jaundice, providing a cure for this serious ailment. 

In a trial on mice, the nanomedicine was found safe and swift, precisely bringing down bilirubin levels within two and a half hours. This ability of controlled enhancement of oxidative stress in mammals paves new potential for the application of nanomedicine in controlling virus infection, including COVID-19.
