Coronavirus - new drug

New, more effective drug to treat COVID-19

Aplidin, also known as Plitidepsin, has gone through a Phase II clinical trial against COVID-19 and is now awaiting the start of Phase III testing. It comes from sea squirts, marine creatures that look like plants and have tubular openings allowing them to draw in and expel water. Their only known habitat is around the Spanish island of Ibaza east of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea.
