ICMR finds new treatment for corona treatment, medicine made from animal blood serum
The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), in collaboration with a Hyderabad-based pharmaceutical company, has found a new prescription for the treatment of fatal corona infection. ICMR has claimed that it has developed a highly purified 'antisera' using animal blood serum to treat corona, which is quite effective in reducing corona malignancy. Antisera are blood serum derived from animals, which contain antibodies against specific antigens. They are used in the treatment of certain diseases.
This is a new therapy for the treatment of corona after plasma therapy in India. It is being claimed that it is not only effective in preventing the horrors of the disease in corona patients, but it is also able to treat it. ICMR reported that such measures have been used to control many viral bacterial infections even before.
Corona virus infection may be decreasing in the country but the risk is increasing. So far, nearly one lakh people have lost their lives due to the virus, 34% of these deaths occurred only in the month of September. About 1,100 people die every day.
