Serum phospholipids are also required by many viruses for
- entry into cells (endocytosis)
- replication and transcription (DMV)
- assembly of novel viruses (Golgi complex)
- release of next progeny (exocytosis, coronavirus: LY exocytosis)
ASD-CoV is a novel formulation of intestinally absorbed oral alpha-cyclodextrin (αCD, CoM pat. pend.), a food ingredient, which is generally recognized as safe (GRAS).
αCD is known to reduce obesity and to improve cardiovascular and metabolic function. When reliably absorbed from the intestine, αCD
ASD-CoV is a natural product that reduces serum phospholipids (components of eggs). This supports normal cellular health by maintaining regular levels of endo- and exocytosis.
ASD-CoV can be brought to marked immediately under the GRAS exemption or within weeks under an NDIN and is safe enough to be taken before an infection has occured. A potential side effect is a slight reduction of body weight from the excretion of the lipids.
In contrast to hydroxychloroquine, which not only blocks the (heart) ACE2 receptor (below), but also inhibits autophagy (the essential cellular "detoxification"), ASD-CoV improves autophagy, whose decline is also involved in the etiology of many age-related diseases, including neuro-degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and multiple sclerosis (MS), see the AGING tab.
