WHO decision to halt trials of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 is not correct: CSIR DG

Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Director General Shekhar Mande said that WHO decision to halt trials of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 is not correct and it must resume as early as possible.

"The study was published in Lancet on hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine and its effect on COVID-19.

It is an observational study with statical parameters and analysis which is not sufficiently good.

In our letter to the Lancet editor, we have written that the study design and statical interferences are not right therefore study does not deserve any attention of the readers.

We believe that WHO's decision to temporarily halt the trials is not correct and demanded that the clinical trials of hydroxychloroquine for its use in COVID-19 cases must resume as early as possible," said Mande after WHO halts clinical trials of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19.

COVID-19: DCGI approves CSIR's paper-based testing kit

Council of Scientific and Industrial Research on September 20 informed that Drugs Controller General of India has approved CSIR's paper-based testing kit called Feluda for COVID-19. CSIR, Director General S Mande said, "Our Delhi CSIR lab's been working on studying CRISPR-Cas immunity. They have experience of working in this particular area before COVID-19 and could repurpose the thing for COVID and developed a paper-based testing kit called Feluda and got formal approval from DCGA. Mande further explained the functioning of the paper based test. "It's different as RTPCR detects RNA and amplifies it using a polymerase chain reaction that is costly. This paper-based test also detects RNA but by a CRISPR guided system. The paper lights up if there is any virus RNA to show a sample is positive, in 45 minutes," he added.

Cold May Help Prevent Flu Says New Study

The virus most often behind the common cold is capable of preventing the flu virus. It prevents the flu from infecting airways by jump-starting the body's immune defenses. A study published Friday by The Lancet Microbe found this evidence recently. They did an analysis of more than 13,000 patients with symptoms of a respiratory infection. Those who had rhinovirus were not simultaneously infected with the flu virus.
