Posted by kartik joshi on October 4th, 2022

Diltiazem Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis – by Product type and application,” the market is projected to reach US$ 832.51 million by 2028 from US$ 369.95 million in 2021; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3% from 2021 to 2028. The report highlights the key factors driving the market growth and prominent players with their developments in the market.

Early during the pandemic, chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine were promoted as efficacious treatments against COVID-19. But a recent report dismissed both drugs showing that they suppress viral growth in the epithelial kidney cell line Vero E6 but not in the relevant epithelial lung Calu-3 cells. Remdesivir initially developed for Ebola treatment, is presently the only antiviral therapy used to effectively treat COVID-19 patients and was shown to improve symptoms in 68% of treated patients in clinical trials. However, with only one efficacious antiviral therapy on the market, there remains a need to identify and provide additional drugs to treat COVID-19 patients. Given the current pandemic and the need for practicality, these drugs should ideally be FDA approved so they can be rapidly repurposed for COVID-19 treatment. SARS-CoV requires Ca2+ ions for host cell entrance and based on the connection between SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2, it is very likely that the exact necessities exist for both viruses. Moreover, as per the recent report of bioRxiv published in July 2020, there is evidence that calcium channel blockers (CCB) inhibit viral infections at the cell entry-level. Therefore, treatment with verapamil or diltiazem inhibits viral infection.
