Drug repositioning candidates identified using in-silico quasi-quantum molecular simulation demonstrate reduced COVID-19 mortality in 1.5M patient records.

medRxiv 2021 Apr 6. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Background: Drug repositioning is a key component of COVID-19 pandemic response, through identification of existing drugs that can effectively disrupt COVID-19 disease processes, contributing valuable insights into disease pathways. Traditional non drug repositioning approaches take substantial time and cost to discover effect and, crucially, to validate repositioned effects.

Methods: Using a novel in-silico quasi-quantum molecular simulation platform that analyzes energies and electron densities of both target proteins and candidate interruption compounds on High Performance Computing (HPC), we identified a list of FDA-approved compounds with potential to interrupt specific SARS-CoV-2 proteins.

Involvement of Cytokines in the Pathogenesis of Diabetic Macular Edema.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Mar 26;22(7). Epub 2021 Mar 26.

Hachioji Medical Center, Department of Ophthalmology, Tokyo Medical University, 1163, Tatemachi, Hachioji, Tokyo 193-0998, Japan.

Diabetic macular edema (DME) is a critical complication of diabetic retinopathy, a condition that arises from the breakdown of the blood-retinal barrier and the consequent increase in vascular permeability. Over the years, attempts have been made to treat DME by various approaches, including laser photocoagulation, steroid triamcinolone acetonide, and vitrectomy. However, treatment was unsatisfactory until research identified vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) as a factor in the pathogenesis of DME. Read More
