A drug for the prevention of coronavirus complications is being prepared by biotechnology in Yakutia. At the regional Institute of Biological Problems of Cryolithozone, the biological product Betukladin was developed.

Scientists are confident that it will be effective in the prevention of late complications in the rehabilitation of patients with COVID-19, as well as for primary prevention. According to the press service of the government of the republic, the drug is based on the natural substance betulin, extracted from birch bark. Its antiviral activity has been established in world practice in relation to influenza viruses of type A, bird flu, hepatitis C and several others.

The properties of betulin are enhanced by one and a half times due to interaction with the active substances of lichen thalli. As a result, the substance is able to remove viral toxins, and its antibacterial effect is also enhanced.
