Seville, That patients treated with these drugs are less likely to develop infection, or have less suffering if they are infected.

A person suffers from psychosis when he suffers from a disorder on the mental level, and his logical thinking and sensory perception are affected, and he becomes more prone to hallucinations.

Both studies were recently published in a journal "Schizophrenia Research" Medical, as revealed first a study Descriptive epidemiology of a sample of 698 patients treated withAntipsychotics At Seville Hospital, antipsychotic drugs can provide protection against both infection and the propensity to clinical severity of COVID-19 infection.

Manuel Canal Rivero, clinical psychologist and lead author of one of the two research papers says: "These are very interesting results that reflect a clinical reality; Where we see quite a few patients infected with a virus Covid-19 Acute, although there are various risk factors".

Rivero continues "The number of Covid-19 patients is lower than expected among this group of people and in cases where a proven infection occurs, the development is benign and does not reach a life-threatening clinical condition. And this data as a whole appears to indicate the preventive effect of the drug ".

Complementing this study, the same research group noted that many genes whose expression is altered by COVID-19 are largely regulated by antipsychotic drugs, which are commonly used to treat related diseases. Psychotic symptoms.

This finding was obtained by investigating the gene expression profile (an index of active biological processes) of Covid-19 patients and patients being treated with antipsychotic drugs (specifically, aripiprazole).

Meanwhile, the lead author of the second research paper, Professor Crespo Vaccorro, says: "We have shown in an amazing way how antipsychotics reduce stimulation Genes Participation in the many inflammatory and immune pathways associated with the severity of COVID-19 infection".

Moreover, Vakoru stresses that "Although this finding requires repetition, discovery may be of great interest; To find effective treatments for Covid-19 patients".

The discovery may be of great significance because treating Covid-19 with drugs that were originally indicated for unrelated clinical cases, i.e. repositioning the drug, has proven to be an interesting source of effective treatments for Covid-19 patients. ".

The two studies conducted by the Mental Health Unit at the University Hospital “Virgen del Rocío” in Virgil Seville, That patients treated with these drugs are less likely to develop infection, or have less suffering if they are infected.
