The potential role of thymoquinone in preventing the cardiovascular complications of COVID-19
Ajaz Ahmad, Mohammad Raish, Khalid M Alkharfy
Vascular Pharmacology, doi:10.1016/j.vph.2021.106899
A new virus strain detected in late 2019 and not previously described in humans is the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which causes corona virus disease . While potential therapeutic approaches for COVID-19 are being investigated, significant initiatives are being made to create protective drugs and study various antiviral agents to cure the infection. However, an effective treatment strategy against COVID-19 is worrisome inadequate. The objective of the present manuscript is to discuss the potential role of thymoquinone (TQ) in preventing the cardiovascular complications of COVID-19, focusing on viral inhibition, antioxidant potential, vascular effect, and cardiac protection. The multifunctional properties of TQ could potentially synergize with the activity of current therapeutic interventions and offer a basis for managing COVID-19 disease more effectively. Even though the experimental evidence is positive, a translational application of TQ in COVID-19 is timely warranted.
