Long-Covid: Doctors from Bavaria apparently heal patients after corona infection

"It was like a huge miracle when we noticed that the patients were free of symptoms," the ophthalmologist Bettina Hohberger is quoted from the news portal: "In some cases, for example, the brain fog subsided just a few hours after the infusion, so that the patients were able to think clearly again. ”Brain Fog stands for clouding of consciousness. In addition to permanent tiredness, rapid exhaustion or taste disorders, this is one of several symptoms for the so-called long covid after an infection with the coronavirus.

The report said that four patients had been treated with the drug, and that all of the symptoms had subsided after a few weeks at the latest.

Hohberger described about a patient: "The fact that the patient was completely symptom-free due to the improved blood circulation amazed us." The catch: The drug with the active ingredient BC 007 is currently still in the approval process, writes

"We receive hundreds of letters from those affected who are looking for help and are hoping for a cure," said the doctor from Erlangen in Bavaria.

But at the moment her team could not treat any more Long Covid patients: "The drug has been used up, we only had a few doses," said the molecular medicine specialist.

But how did the new findings come about in an eye clinic of all places?

To classify: The drug was originally supposed to help against glaucoma in the eye.
