Targeting covid inflammation in lungs may yield better results than targeting whole body

These findings provide evidence for why targeting inflammation outside the lungs [against covid] has been disappointing so far. Instead, a more targeted approach that inhibits the expression and activation of complement proteins in lung cells could yield better results. For example, the researchers found that pairing Remdesivir with Ruxolitinib inhibited the complement response much more effectively than a monotherapy of the drugs independently, using an in vitro model of alveolar cells.
