French scientists have reported the successful results of clinical studies on the action of the combination of two existing drugs — of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin against the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.

To date, there are no specific medications designed to treat COVID-19. In several hundred clinical trials are conducted around the world, studied the effect on the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 existing drugs approved for other indications.

Research mostly built around two groups of drugs: ramdevpir — intravenous drugs with broad antiviral activity that inhibits viral replication by premature termination of RNA transcription, and anti-malarial drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine.

In laboratory tests, all three drugs showed activity against SARS-CoV-2, and chloroquine is now used as a recommended antiviral treatment for COVID-19 in China. However, the introduction of some of these drugs in practice, the required clinical trials.

French scientists conducted the first clinical studies of the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine alone and in combination with the antibiotic azithromycin for the treatment of COVID-19. The study was conducted on the basis of infectious hospital Méditerranée Infection University hospital Marseille University.

The study involved 36 adult patients with symptoms COVID-19, and without who have been confirmed carriers of the SARS-CoV-2 in the sample of the nasopharynx. Of those who did not agree to accept new drugs constituted the control group of 16 people, and they continued, as before, to appoint a symptomatic treatment and antibiotics to prevent bacterial superinfection.The remaining 14 patients within ten days was orally administered 200 mg of hydroxychloroquine sulfate three times a day. Six of them, in addition to hydroxychloroquine, I got to prevent superinfection the first two days of 500 milligrams of azithromycin a day, and then for four days, and 250 milligrams. All six patients tolerated the combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin. Every day they did an electrocardiogram to control the absence of side-effects on the heart.

Already on the fifth day, all six patients tests for coronavirus were negative, which was confirmed in the following days. That is, all patients COVID-19 in the test group over five days was completely cured.
Interestingly, one patient who received only hydroxychloroquine, and not recovered on the eighth day of the study began to take azithromycin, and on the ninth day of her audition for the virus was already negative.
Scientists say that, despite the fact that the test group was very small, and for validation of the results, it is necessary to conduct larger clinical trials and results are very encouraging.
