Bengaluru: HCG Hospital and the Bangalore Institute of Gastroenterology began clinical trials to study the efficacy of Aceinavir drug in COVID-positive patients after the Indian Council of Medical Research granted permission last week.

Reportedly, this drug is a combination of 18 molecules or herbs that have already been approved by the Ayush ministry for other purposes, and their efficacy against the coronavirus has been published in the medical journal, Lancet. This is essentially repurposing of an existing drug and is also referred to as off-label use.

Trials of the drug on four COVID-positive patients are currently on in Karnataka.
