The drug regulatory agency of the United Kingdom (MHRA, its acronym in English) approved this Friday (20) the first drug to prevent and treat Covid-19 in the country. O Ronapreve, developed by pharmaceutical companies Roche and Regeneron, is a treatment with monoclonal antibodies. Proteins produced in the laboratory act as natural human antibodies in the immune system.

According to the MHRA, the drug is administered by injection and acts on the lining of the respiratory system, preventing the coronavirus from accessing the cells of the respiratory system. Clinical trials of Ronapreve were conducted last year, showing that the product is effective in preventing infection, improving symptoms of severe Covid-19 and also reducing the chances of hospitalization for the disease.

“This treatment will be a significant addition to our arsenal to tackle Covid-19,” said UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid. “We are now working with the NHS [sistema de saúde britânico] and specialist doctors to ensure that this treatment can be implemented for NHS patients as quickly as possible.”

Ronapreve was administered to former US President Donald Trump when he contracted the disease last year. The treatment was also approved on an emergency basis by the US and Anvisa for certain cases.
