Potassium permanganate is a very strong oxidizer. Permanganate of potassium, an inorganic complex, is used as an oxidizer, especially in organic reactions. It is dark purple, violet in color. KMnO4, which has a very characteristic color, dissolves in water. Its strong oxidizing nature also makes it a very effective cleaning agent. The outer walls or cellular integrity of harmful organisms such as viruses and bacteria cannot remain intact under such a strong oxidizing effect. However, its use for this purpose is not very common. Because potassium permanganate is extremely toxic. Such a toxic substance should not come into contact with…


Since the day it first appeared, vaccination studies for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, whose vaccination studies were carried out, started to give positive results. With the announcement of the 90% effective Covid-19 vaccine, it began to show positive weather effects worldwide.

There are more than one organization carrying out Covid-19 vaccine studies. One of the vaccines produced by these organizations is the Covid-19 vaccine, designed as a domestic vaccine. Although various inspections of the domestic vaccine have been carried out, it is seen that foreign-sourced vaccine studies are progressing at an extremely rapid rate. It is seen that vaccine studies…


Favicovir acts like other drugs containing the active ingredient favipiravir. It simply acts as a treatment by successfully inhibiting some of the enzymes of the Covid-19 virus. This effect has been proven by many academic studies. The number of these academic studies is increasing day by day. This situation should not lead to the use of indiscriminate medication and should only be used with the doctor’s advice. It should not be forgotten that every drug has more or less side effects.

Favicovir side effects include diarrhea. Diarrhea is quite common among favicovir side effects. Click for more information

Diarrhea is…


Plaquenil, or hydroxychloroquine, which has been used frequently with the Covid-19 epidemic, has certain side effects like every drug. Plaquenil is a malaria medicine. And its first use was in the treatment of malaria. With the outbreak of the Covid19 epidemic, the re-purposing of FDA-approved drugs quickly developed a treatment procedure. In this context, the process that started with computational chemistry studies continued with in vitro and in vivo studies. Does. When Plaquenil is thinned in terms of its side effects, the following results appear.

What are the side effects of Plaquenil?

Plaquenil Side Effects

Precise information on Chloroquine and Plaquenil side effects allows better exploitation of their therapeutic effects…


Tamoxifen citrate is a drug used in breast cancer. It is in the anti-estrogen class. It inhibits estrogen receptors competitively. In other words, before the estrogen hormones can bind to the receptor, the tamoxifen molecule comes and binds to the receptor. In this way, the effects of estrogen hormones are eliminated. So, tamoxifen is an estrogen antagonist. This situation is similar to enzyme inhibition and generally works on the same principle, however, an agonist site (pocket) may also be present in the binding sites of the receptors.

Some countries use steroids in the treatment process of Covid-19 disease. In particular…


Although Favipiravir was approved for the new flu treatment in China on February 15, 2020, clinical trials in the treatment of COVID-19 continue. Favipiravir is a new type of RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) inhibitor. In addition to anti-influenza virus activity, favipiravir can block the replication of flavi-, alpha-, filo-, bunya-, arena-, neuro- and other RNA viruses. Favipiravir is converted in cells to an active phosphorylated form and recognized as a substrate by viral RNA polymerase, thus inhibiting RNA polymerase activity. Therefore, it was thought that favipiravir might have a potential antiviral effect on SARS-CoV-2, an RNA virus. In this part…
