Attributed to global efforts and accomplishments of scientists and medical professionals, an antiviral candidate for treating infectious diseases, such as COVID-19, should meet higher standards after numerous clinical trials worldwide in the last three years (2020~2022). Here are examples of criteria:
• Significant improvement of performance upon the drugs approved by the FDA
• Capable of treating a broad spectrum of viral infections
• Ability to help patients with symptoms from mild to critical conditions
• Discoveries of new targets or new target zones for advancement or both
A drug molecule, either a repurposed commercial drug or an investigational one, is named an excellent candidate if it can fulfill one or more requirements listed.
In reality, drug molecules exist to fit the above guidelines. The point is that companies and organizations with ownership have yet to be aware of their existence.
Before any costly clinical trial with patients, the new technology introduced on the front page can comprehensively evaluate a drug molecule's therapeutic functions through quantitative and precise experimentation.
