About 500 people living in nursing homes have received this Cuban medicine to increase their defenses.
In the fight against COVID-19, Cuba is implementing drug-based protocols developed for other pathologies, one of which uses Biomodulin T, a drug originally produced to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in the elderly.
The Center for Research on Longevity, Aging, and Health (CITED) Director Liliam Rodriguez reported that Biomodulin T has been used to protect the elderly living in public centers since mid-April.
After a month, this preventive measure has been completely successful since no patient treated with Biomodulin T has contracted COVID-19. This treatment has also been accompanied by strict security measures implemented in nursing homes.
"At the working meeting with President Miguel Diaz-Canel, we presented the results of Biomodulin T used in all nursing homes... What a joy to know that another Cuban medicine helps save lives,” BioCubaFarma President Eduardo Martinez said.
