Hope rises as Nigerian priests and researchers develop COVID-19 drug

A group of Nigerian Catholic priests, in partnership with researchers from University of Lagos and University of Benin, have developed a drug called Pax CVD Plus for the treatment of the deadly COVID-19.

The disclosure was made in a statement released and signed by Father Anselm Adodo OSB on Wednesday, April 29, on the official page of the Pax Herbal Clinic and Research Laboratories, Outcome News reports.

The cleric said the plant-based drug made solely for the treatment of COVID-19 is the best approach for the disease because the drugs are easily produced, stored and distributed and can be handled by medical and non medical personnel as they pose low contamination risk.

Father Anselm went on to say that the constituents of the drug are antiviral and immunodulatory agents which help to stimulate antibodies.

The cleric said: “The Pax CVD PLUS contains herbs and active phytoconstituents with documented scientific evidence based on clinical reports of their efficacy and safety.”

According to Father Anselm, the research is a joint effort of experts from University of Lagos and University of Benin, a tertiary health institution – Irrua Specialist Teaching Hospital, Edo state, and experts sent by Prof Tunde Salako and Prof Catherine Adeyeye.

Professor Salako is the head of the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Research and Development, while Professor Adeyeye is the director general of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control.
