In addition, statistical significance was seen in the alleviation of symptoms such as taste and smell from Day 5. Most importantly, there was statistical significance in the reduction of Interleukin-6, the key biomarker that is the predictor of immune dysregulation, acute respiratory distress, mortality, and Long-COVID. A further subset analysis showed adjunctive effects with the standard of care with Remdesivir.
