Havana, Cuba.- Cuban health authorities highlighted on Tuesday the good results obtained in applying Biomodulin T to take advantage of its protective effect in risk groups, as part of preventive treatments to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

In response to a question from Prensa Latina during the daily press briefing on the island’s epidemiological situation, Francisco Duran, director of Epidemiology at the Ministry of Public Health, highlighted the favorable effect of the drug to improve people’s immune system and prevent contagion with the novel SARS-Cov-2 coronavirus, or in case of getting sick, people can recover without complications.

Biomodulin T has been applied to date to risk groups such as aged adults who are in health and social centers, among them nursing homes and psychiatric hospitals, and patients with associated diseases, the senior official said.

In all cases, the results of these clinical trials are monitored and whatever results are obtained, the treatment may be extended to more population groups, the doctor noted.

Biomodulin T, a product registered in Cuba since 1994, is a biological immunomodulator of natural origin, is not a blood product, which is used to treat repeated respiratory infections in senior citizens, with excellent efficacy and safety results.
