In this context of emergency, the international scientific community is reacting with rapid responses to enhance the knowledge of the virus’s fundamental processes and hence facilitate the control of the pandemic. This includes a very rapid sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 genome, solving the structures of key viral proteins, modeling of the pandemic spread to assist public decision, and developing better detection tests,[4] vaccines,[5] and effective treatments.[6] Due to the urgency posed by the pandemic, an efficient and relatively fast strategy to obtain suitable therapeutic agents consists in exploring the antiSARS-CoV-2 activity of drugs already approved for human use,[7] in a drug repurposing framework. Since the safety profiles of the candidates are well known, only the antiviral efficacy remains to be assessed, thus strongly reducing the time required for clinical tests and approval. A drug that has shown promising results is the broad-spectrum antiparasitic ivermectin (Figure 1), which has been shown to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication in cell cultures with an IC50 of ~2 μM.[8] In particular, the action of ivermectin results in 99.8% reduction of cell associated viral RNA in 24 hours, while a ~5000fold decrease of the viral RNA content is observed after 48 hours with a maintaining of the effect at 72 hours. Recently, Yang et al[9] have shown that ivermectin is a host-directed agent, i.e. the main targets of the drug are not in the pathogen but in the host cell. This is coherent with the broad antiviral activity observed against HIV, influenza, dengue virus, Zika, and other flaviviruses.[10] Ivermectin inhibits the transport of viral proteins into cellular nuclei mediated by importin α/β1 carriers, an import process related to the suppression of the host immune response by impairing mRNA function.[9] This pathogen-independent mechanism suggests that only very low concentrations of ivermectin could be sufficient to control SARS-CoV-2 infection.[11] A recent report have questioned that the plasma..
