The medical authorities said the drug used in Japan to treat the new strain of influenza appears to be effective in patients, Japanese media said on Wednesday.

Zhang Xinmin, an official at China’s science and technology ministry, said favipiravir, developed by a subsidiary of Fujifilm, has produced encouraging results in clinical trials in Wuhan and Shenzhen involving 340 patients.

“He has a high level of security and clearly effective treatment,” said Zhang reporters on Tuesday.

Patients who were given the drug in Shenzhen to be negative for the virus after an average of four days after becoming positive, compared with an average of 11 days for those who are not treated with the drug, NHK said.

In addition, X-rays confirmed the improvement in the condition of the lungs in approximately 91% of patients treated with favipiravir, compared with 62% or those without drug

Fujifilm Toyama Chemical, which developed the drug. – also known as Avigan -. in 2014, has refused to comment on the claims

The company’s shares soared on Wednesday after comments Zhang, closed the morning up 14.7% at 5207 yen, having briefly hit their daily limit of 5238 yen higher.

doctors use the same drugs in clinical studies in patients with mild symptoms coronavirus to moderate, hoping it will prevent the virus from proliferating in the patient.

But the Japanese health ministry sources suggest the drug was not effective in people with more severe symptoms. “We have given Avigan for 70 to 80 people, but it does not seem a good job when the virus has multiplied,” the source told the Mainichi Shimbun.

The same limitations have been identified in studies involving patients coronavirus uses a combination of HIV antiretrovirals lopinavir and ritonavir, the source added.

in 2016, the Japanese government provided favipiravir as emergency aid to combat an outbreak of Ebola virus in Guinea.

Favipiravir would require government approval for full-scale use on Covid-19 patients, because it was originally intended to treat the flu.

A health official told the Mainichi drug can be approved as early as may. “But if the results of clinical studies are pending, approval can also be delayed.”
