The nasal spray, designed to protect against the dangers of corona, has reduced the effect of the virus by 94% within 24 hours, while the virus has been controlled by 99% in 48 hours. Mumbai-based pharma company Glenmark has made this claim in the results of a clinical trial, which has been published in the medical journal The Lancet Regional Health. In February this year, this nasal spray, which took permission from the government, was launched under the name Fabi Spray.
Glenmark’s head of clinic development, Monica Tandon, said the nasal spray was tested in 20 hospitals across the country. In this, patients with mild symptoms (those who took the vaccine) and patients without vaccine were kept in separate groups. One was given a nasal spray, ie, nitric oxide through the nose, while the other group was given a placebo. When the results were reviewed after seven days, the effect was found. Research has found that viral load decreased by up to 94% within 24 hours in high-risk patients.
