DOST ay nagsasaliksik tungkol sa lagundi at tawa-tawa na pwedeng panlunas ng COVID-19

| |

The Science and Technology Department (DOST) is studying various herbal medicines available in the Philippines to improve the treatment of patients with COVID-19 infections.

In a Thursday interview on Dobol B sa News TV, DOST Secretary Fortunato Dela Peña said a study on lagundi and tawa-tawa is in the pipeline aside from virgin coconut oil.

He said these will undergo in vitro testing in a Singapore laboratory where active components of these herbal medicines will be introduced into the COVID-19-causing SARS-CoV-2 virus.

“Dalawa ‘yung nakalinya na rin, ganoon din ang pagdadaanang proseso [tulad ng VCO]. Kaya lang ito, imbes na sabay ang pagpapa-in vitro trial sa Singapore, uunahin kasi hindi na kami magki-clinical trials kung hindi maganda ang resulta sa laboratoryo,” Dela Peña said.

“Ang tinutukoy ko ay lagundi at tawa-tawa… kasi pareho ring may antiviral properties ‘yan kaya nga approved na gamot ang lagundi sa ubo at approved na health supplements ang tawa-tawa sa dengue,” he added.

He said the DOST is supporting all studies that would help in finding cures for various ailments, not just COVID-19.

“Pati ‘yung lupa sa ilalim ng dagat inaaral namin ngayon dahil maraming potential antibiotics. ‘Yung sediments sa ilalim ng dagat. Inaaral ngayon ‘yan sa University of San Agustin ng ating dalawang balik-scientist,” Dela Peña said.

“Pag nakita na namin ang active ingredients at saan nakakapagpagaling, iyon nag-uumpisa na kami mag-alok sa industry. Inaalok namin sa mga industry na Pilipino na i-pick up itong mga active ingredient na ito at sila na ang magtuloy hanggang maging gamot.”

Dela Peña shared that, after the DOST announced its plan to establish a virology institute, many Filipino scientists abroad expressed their intent to return to the country.

He also said that he thinks that the P50 million reward that President Rodrigo Duterte is offering to any Filipino who will discover a COVID-19 vaccine may go to groups pursuing another important endeavor.

“Ang malamang makakuha ng premyo ng Presidente ay gumagawa ng ventilator. Pinayagan naming sabay-sabay na mag-research ang iba’t ibang grupo. Magugulat tayo, magkakaroon tayo, magkakaroon tayo,” he said.

    Also I finally met Shoya! Thank you!!! He is a new man, really!!! I love to see a change in people after they’ve studied overseas for a long time. He has confidence, makes eye contact when he speaks and his English is good! Thank you, thank you, again and again.

  3. RELA is an excellent language academy. The teachers here are excellent too. They know how to make the class active and happy. From talking with the teachers, you could learn a lot of English culture. It helps you to improve the language. RELA, thank you for giving me a wonderful time.
    I couldn’t say thank you to everyone for some reason. So I’d like say it here… Thank you soooo much for everything, all teachers, all staff and all students. I had a really cool school life at RELA. I improved my English a lot at RELA, but also RELA taught me a lot of things about life as well and made me stronger 🙂 My school life was really unforgettable and I’ll never forget all the people that I’ve met at RELA. Love you guys xxx

  4. It has been the greatest experience in my life to study here. Thanks for all you did for me (special classes, supporting me…). I’m going to recommend RELA to any person who wants to learn English and I hope I’ll see you again in the future.
    ”RELA is the most amazing place I know. Thank you Chris to take care of all of us. Thank you all the office. Thank you my lovely teachers. I think the only negative point in this school is how it makes me sad to leave it.”

  5. ”I’ve been to other language schools but RELA is the best. I love how close teachers and students are. I really appreciated when teachers helped me even outside of school.”
    I was very happy to see everyone again. It’s always a pleasure to come here. Every body is happy to meet other students. They are very nice with me. I always keep many good memories about my trips in Rotorua.

  6. Yet despite Quick’s enthusiasm about antigen testing, he has one big caveat: “What’s really important is that people don’t use the test to get complacent, because the tests aren’t going to do anything to change the virus,” he said. “And so the personal protective habits need to keep up, in terms of masks and handwashing and distancing and avoiding crowded indoor places.”

  7. But even with the best of intentions, her kids got the wrong message anyway. This was partly from the world around them, which defined success in somewhat narrow terms: good grades, fancy college degree, followed by professional success. It was also because no matter how hard we try to say the right things, our children tend to be keen observers of our true, sometimes even unconcious, desires.

  8. Thanks for some other magnificent post. Where else may anyone get that type of info in such an ideal approach of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am at the look for such info.

  9. “We don’t want our kids to see that, to see the naked people on the street,” his wife Anna adds, gesturing towards a small group of clothed revelers doing the macarena nearby. She refers to LGBT activists as coming from “the dark side,” and says their petition has garnered 5,000 signatures in one afternoon, far outnumbering those celebrating at the event.

  10. Several of those who came to support the anti-LGBT gathering told CNN they identify as Polish nationalists. Some wear high black boots and T-shirts adorned with slogans written in Fraktur, the old German typeface favored by Eastern European far-right groups. A few complained about “Antifa” infiltrating Poland’s streets among the protesters.
