Chewing gum also protects against corona virus
Pennsylvania: American scientists have developed a chewing gum that can be used to prevent the spread of corona virus.
According to the details, the saliva (combustible saliva) of people infected with Corona virus (SARS cocoa 2) contains a large amount of the virus which can enter the body with the same saliva and exacerbate the disease (Covid 19). Can cause
Therefore, experts believe that reducing the amount of corona virus in saliva can reduce the severity of the disease.
With that in mind, he developed a chewing gum that contained a large amount of a protein called “S2” (ACE2).
This protein prevents the corona virus from sticking to the cell surface and entering the cell; And so it doesn’t make the effect of Covid 19 too serious.
In initial experiments, this chewing gum powder has been successfully tested on human saliva in a culture dish.
These experiments showed that just 5 mg of chewing gum significantly reduced the amount of corona virus in human saliva.
However, when this dose was increased to 50 mg, it eliminated 95% of the corona virus from saliva samples.
While this is a promising achievement, experts warn that this research should not be exaggerated as it is still in its infancy.
He says that unless the chewing gum proves to be just as effective and successful after careful human trials, it should not be considered an “effective treatment” for the corona virus.
It should be noted that the use of chewing gum for good oral health is not a new thing, but “healthy chewing gum” with extra fluorine, calcium and bicarbonate has been widely available for years.
However, this is the first time that chewing gum has been developed specifically to treat a disease.
