Molnupiravir, an antiviral drug, was initially developed for the treatment of influenza. It is repurposed to completely suppress the transmission of the Covid-19 virus within 24 hours, according to a recent study published in the journal Nature Microbiology.

The synthetic process know-how for Molnupiravir was sourced from CSIR-NIIST and the scale-up process was successfully carried out by CSIR-IICT.

The complete technology know-how will be transferred to Suven Pharmaceuticals, which will in turn manufacture and launch the drug in the domestic market as an effective medication for Covid-19 infected patients.

How this pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more updates from this space.
