Fujifilm ramps up production of flu drug Avigan as possible COVID-19 treatment


FUJIFILM Corporation is providing correct information regarding Avigan Tablet developed by FUJIFILM Toyama Chemical Co., Ltd.

Avigan Tablet was approved for manufacture and sale in Japan in 2014 as an influenza antiviral drug. The drug is to be considered for use only when there is an outbreak of novel or re-emerging influenza virus infections in which other influenza antiviral drugs are either not effective or insufficiently effective, and the Japanese government decides to use the drug as a countermeasure against such influenza viruses. Thus, while the Japanese government has a certain stockpile of the drug, Avigan Tablet has never been distributed in the market and is not available at hospitals and pharmacies in Japan or overseas.

Favipiravir, the active pharmaceutical ingredient of Avigan Tablet, has a mechanism of action that prevents the propagation of viruses. The drug may potentially have an antiviral effect on the novel coronavirus as it is classified into the same type (single-stranded RNA virus) as influenza virus.
However, at this stage, clinical application of Avigan Tablet to treat Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) is under study and preparation in order to obtain clear evidence of the drug's efficacy and safety.

Avigan Tablet has not been approved for marketing in any countries other than Japan. If any other national government or regulatory authority decides the use of Avigan Tablet, Fujifilm group intends to cooperate sincerely with the supply of Avigan Tablet to such countries in consultation and coordination with the Japanese government.


China has completed clinical research Favipiravir, an antiviral drug that has demonstrated clinical efficacy against disease caused by a novel coronavirus, COVID-19, announced on Tuesday an official quoted by Xinhua, quoted by Agerpres .

Favipiravir, a drug for influenza approved for clinical use in Japan in 2014, showed no adverse effects evident in the trial, said in a press conference Zhang Xinmin, director of the National Center for Development Biotechnology, under the Ministry of Science and technology in China.

Over 80 patients have participated in clinical trials at a hospital in the city of Shenzhen, located in Guangdong province in southern China. 35 of these patients had received treatment with Favipiravir, and 45 were included in a control group.

The results showed that patients receiving treatment with Favipiravir were negative when tested for the virus in less time than patients in the control group.

A randomized, multicenter, led by Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University, also suggested that the therapeutic effect of Favipiravir is much better compared to that observed in the control group.

Favipiravir was recommended by physicians and teams would be included in the diagnosis and treatment plan applied COVID-19 as soon as possible, said Zhang.

A Chinese pharmaceutical company has received approval from the National Administration Medical Products to mass produce the drug and to ensure a stable supply, added Zhang, quoted by Xinhua.

A lot of old people are going to die and then the bug will mutate away for now. Things will be more or less back to normal when the US is done in a few months. The question is will any lessons be learned? Like if the virus starts anywhere other than a liberal democracy it's a guaranteed sh!t show and everyone on the planet needs a snorkel mask with an n95 filter on top.

If I'm ignoring you it's because you're a fallacy impaired fool. You're simply not worthy of my attention, sorry about your luck.
