In this lesson, I discuss the antiviral known as remdesivir, including how it is administered, adverse effects of its use, mechanism of action, and an overview of the antiviral effects remdesivir has on coronaviruses like SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
1) Brief Introduction to Remdesivir, including what it is and what it was originally designed to treat
2) Overview of mechanism of Remdesivir’s anti-viral effects on coronaviruses like SARS-CoV-2

*DISCLAIMER* All of these mechanisms have ONLY been shown in in-vitro studies (in a cell culture plate), so these mechanisms MAY NOT translate to actual clinical significance in treating humans. Until we have data from a randomized controlled trial in humans, WE DON’T KNOW whether these medications have anti-viral treatment properties (against SARS-CoV-2) in humans or not! This lesson is for information purposes ONLY. Please DO NOT take this medication without consulting a physician. This medication may have serious adverse effects.
