According to new studies, taking drugs that suppress testosterone helps men transfer coronavirus. The mortality rate of men taking these drugs was several times lower.

According to TASS, doctors of the European Society of Medical Oncology came to such conclusions after monitoring the health status of cancer patients who underwent coronavirus. Observations were made in Venice, where about 10% of men infected with coronavirus suffered from cancer. Moreover, without hormonal drugs, the presence of a tumor almost doubled the chance of death. With the simultaneous administration of antiandrogenic drugs, patients died four to five times less often.

Since the beginning of the epidemic, doctors have noticed that the coronavirus infects men more often than women. Biologists attributed this trend to the fact that the lungs of men contain significantly more molecules that the virus uses to enter cells. And although the opinions of doctors were subsequently divided, doctors from the European Society for Medical Oncology suggest that it is worth paying attention to their research and starting clinical research.
