UAE Develops Breakthrough in COVID-19 Treatment
President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan

A patent granted by the UAE’s Ministry of Economy for the development of an innovative treatment for coronavirus infections. It uses stem cells, Emirates News Agency (WAM) reported on Friday.

A team of doctors and researchers developed the treatment at the Abu Dhabi Stem Cell Center, ADSCC. It also involves extracting stem cells from the patient’s own blood and reintroducing them after activating them. The patent was for the innovative method as collecting stem cells, WAM said.

73 COVID-19 patients received the treatment and recovered after inhaling the treatment. It had been nebulized into a fine mist, into their lungs.

The treatment has successfully undergone the initial phase of clinical trials, demonstrating its safety. None of the patients who received the treatment reported immediate adverse effects.

More so, there were no interactions with the conventional treatment protocols for COVID-19 patients, WAM said.

Trials to demonstrate the efficacy of the treatment are ongoing and are to complete in a couple of weeks, it added.

According to WAM; patients got the treatment along with the conventional medical intervention. It will also continue to serve as an adjunct to establish treatment protocols rather than as a replacement.

Non-pharmacological interventions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 such as staying at home, social distancing and infection prevention and control measures remain necessary to reduce the burden of the disease on the healthcare system, said WAM.
