Covid-19: the University of Lomé will commence human trials for a locally developed treatment next September

(Togo First) - In Togo, the University of Lomé (U.L) will begin human trials for local drugs made to fight the covid-19 virus on September 1, 2020. 

The news, which was relayed in a tweet by Le Temple du Savoir comes after the university proceeded to “in-vitro and in-vivo trials on animals.”

The move to human trials is a significant milestone in the university’s commitment to driving out the coronavirus. 

Let’s recall that the UL has opted for a combination of African traditional medicine and western modern medicine to make drugs against the virus. On May 12, 2020, the Ad hoc commission put in place at the university to fight the pandemic presented its first results for plant-based molecules. Later, in vivo trials were conducted on animals. 

Besides looking for local treatment, the UL is manufacturing and selling alcohol sanitizing gel and respiratory masks, all to contain the pandemic.
