Curcumin for COVID-19
15th treatment shown to reduce risk in February 2021
*, now known with p = 0.000000046 from 26 studies.
No treatment is 100% effective. Protocols combine complementary and synergistic treatments. * >10% efficacy in meta analysis with ≥3 clinical studies.
3,800+ studies for 60+ treatments.
In Vitro study showing antiviral activity of curcumin longa, with protection against SARS-CoV-2-induced cytopathic effects at a concentration of 3.125μg/ml.
In Silico studies predict inhibition of SARS-CoV-2 with curcumin or metabolites via binding to the spike Note A, Nag, Moschovou, Kandeil, Singh (B) (and specifically the receptor binding domain Note B, Kant, Srivastava, Eleraky), Mpro Note C, Moschovou, Kandeil, Srivastava, Naderi Beni, Rajagopal, Rampogu, Sekiou, Singh, Winih Kinasih, Thapa, Bahun, Eleraky, RNA-dependent RNA polymerase Note D, Singh (C), Eleraky, ACE2 Note E, Singh (B), Thapa, Alkafaas, nucleocapsid Note F, Hidayah, Suravajhala, and nsp10 Note G, Suravajhala proteins. In Vitro studies demonstrate inhibition of the spike Note A, Mohd Abd Razak (and specifically the receptor binding domain Note B, Goc (B)), Mpro Note C, Bahun, Guijarro-Real, Mohd Abd Razak, Wu, ACE2 Note E, Goc (B), and TMPRSS2 Note H, Goc (B) proteins. In Vitro studies demonstrate efficacy in Calu-3 Note I, Bormann, A549 Note J, Mohd Abd Razak, 293T Note K, Zhang, HEK293-hACE2 Note L, Nittayananta, Wu, 293T/hACE2/TMPRSS2 Note M, Septisetyani, and Vero E6 Note N, Bormann, Eleraky, Kandeil, Leka, Mohd Abd Razak, Nittayananta, Singh, Teshima, Marín-Palma cells. Curcumin is predicted to inhibit the interaction between the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein receptor binding domain and the human ACE2 receptor for the delta and omicron variants Kant, decreases pro-inflammatory cytokines induced by SARS-CoV-2 in peripheral blood mononuclear cells Marín-Palma, and alleviates SARS-CoV-2 spike protein-induced mitochondrial membrane damage and oxidative stress Zhang.

To the Editor, The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 spread all around the world, leading to an unprecedented pandemic. Up to date, some effective treatments have been highlighted to treat the symptoms, but not to cure the COVID-19 disease. At least, some well-known medicines have been proposed, but have rapidly become the subject of some controversy, such as hydroxychloroquine combined or not azithromycin
