ROLE OF NANOMEDICINE TO COMBAT COVID-19- A REVIEWAbstract
COVID-19 has been proved to create a pandemic over the world within a few years. All scientists and health workers are trying to develop an effective treatment with collaboration. Various strategies such as antiviral, antibacterial, and antimalarial drugs have been employed to treat COVID- 19, but they were found to relieve the symptoms only. The formation of various variants of the virus in various global parts made the treatment of COVID-19 more difficult. Developing an effective vaccine is the main goal of clinicians and scientists, which is under clinical trials, and some vaccines which have been approved for the treatment such as COVAXIN, COVISHIELD, ASTRA Zenaca, and SPUTNIK V vaccines are being used to develop antibodies against COVID-19, but due to spread of variants of virus these vaccines are not supposed to be 100 percent protective against the virus. With the help of nanotechnology, the treatment of SARS- CoV-2 can be made efficient due to its direct target on viral cells and modifying its genetic material functionings. In this review, we summarized the role of nanomedicine in the treatment of SARS-CoV-2.
