Researchers identify 33 molecules that can target 1 COVID-19 protein

Researchers at the Bengaluru-based National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) have identified 33 small molecules out of 3, 30,000 that can target one protein — NSP1 — in the Sars-Cov-2 virus, which causes Covid-19. Identifying these molecules may help with drug discovery and examining existing drugs, approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), that can be repurposed to treat Covid-19.
