Bioactive Compounds Against SARS-CoV-2 (Original PDF from Publisher)


Publisher PDF , 55.5 MB


Coronaviruses can cause illness, severe disease, and death; for example, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and COVID-19. Vaccine development and antiviral drugs are challenged by the propensity for viral mutations allowing these viruses to evade such therapies. There are a number of bioactive compounds from natural sources, which can exert health benefits and act as antiviral therapies such as anti-inflammation, antioxidative stress, and immune regulation. This book summarizes research on the potential efficacy and underlying mechanisms of bioactive compounds and traditional medicines against SARS-CoV-2.

  • Summarizes the potential benefits of bioactive therapies for coronaviruses
  • Focuses on COVID-19, but also covers MERS and SARS
  • Provides alternatives to vaccines and other antiviral drugs whose efficacy is reduced by viral mutations
  • Relevant for clinicians and public health officials
