A New Model of SARS-CoV-2 Infection Based on (Hydroxy)Ch loroquine Activity
In vitro study presenting a new theory on SARS-CoV-2 infection and why HC Q/C Q provides benefits, which potentially explains the observed relationships with smoking, diabetes, obesity, age, and treatment delay, and confirms the importance of accurate dosing. Metabolic analysis revealed HC Q/C Q inhibit oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria (likely by sequestering protons needed to drive ATP synthase), inhibiting infection and/or slowing replication.
