15 DEGs were identified which were identified as potential therapeutic targets against COVID-19, which were related to 46 FDA approved or clinical trial drugs. 3 of them (ALP,CXCL8, IL6) were already targeted in patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 with an additional 35 drugs that target these proteins but have not been tested against the disease. 4 novel potential targets ( CCL20, CSF3, CXCL10) were identified with 6 existing drugs that could be repurposed. 8 further targets ( CXCL6, IFI44, IFI44L, RSAD2, S100A8, SPRR2A, SYNE1, XAF1) associated with the disease were identified but drugs targeting these are under clinical trial or is approved for another indication.

Cathepsin L (CTSL) levels increased in SARS-CoV-2 infected mice's liver.Cathepsin L inhibitor, Amantadine reduced the levels of CTSL. CTSL levels increased in the lungs of infected mice, on inhibitor treatment, no statistically significant result was observed.

Comparative In silico analyses of SARS-CoV-2 genomic features (codon, codon pair, dinucleotide usage, and RNA structure around the frameshift region) was performed to find out the best potential target gene for codon pair deoptimization. Genes N and S are suggested as best targets, because of high codon pair bias (CPB) compared to that of other viral genes. 5,064 complete SARS-CoV-2 genomes were analyzed The codon and codon pair usage was calculated for all the genes coded by SARS-CoV-2. Relative synonymous codon usage (RSCU) and codon pair score (CPS) are the metrics that describe the codon and codon pair usage bias, respectively. The codon pair bias (CPB) is the average CPS across a gene.

Efficacy of remdesivir in a rhesus macaque infected with SARS-CoV-2 shows reduced pulmonary infiltrates and virus titres.. This study shows that remdesivir treatment should be considered as early as clinically possible to prevent progression to pneumonia in COVID-19 patients.

ADME properties of the pyridone-containing -ketoamide 13a was studied 13aseemed to be cleared very rapidly from plasma, at 24 hours it was found at 135 ng/g tissue in the lung and at 52.7 ng/mlin bronchio-alveolar lavage fluid (BALF), which suggests that it was mainly distributed to tissue.

ADME properties of the pyridone-containing -ketoamide 13a was studied After 24 hours, 13b was found at 33 ng/g in lung tissue. Inhalation was tolerated well and mice did not show any adverse effects, which suggests that direct administration of the compound to the lungs would be possible.
