Caracas.- The Academy of Physical, Mathematical and Natural Sciences on Medicines (Acfiman) in Venezuela, he warned that any drug developed to combat diseases must conform to international standards and undergo rigorous controls that guarantee the protection of people. The reaction is about the announcement of the Minister for Science and Technology, Gabriela Jimenez, about him discovery of a molecule that presumably eradicates the coronavirus.
Jiménez’s statements, supported by Nicolas Maduro this Sunday, October 25, they point out that In Venezuela, a medicine will begin to be produced that, presumably, cancels 100% of the coronavirus. The president indicated that it is the TDR10 molecule, studied for six months in the Venezuelan Institute of Scientific Research (Ivic). He specified that this molecule has been applied against hepatitis C, Ebola and HPV.

In that sense, Acfiman published a statement to clarify the following:
- The academy does not know of any publication in internationally recognized scientific journals that refer to the results described by the minister. The publication of scientific discoveries in these journals is a mechanism that guarantees the review and scrutiny, through expert arbitration, of the rigor of the methods and the reliability of the results.
- The discovery of an agent with active potential against any pathogen, including the SARS-Cov2 that causes COVID-19, It is not equivalent to drug discovery, as reported by the Government. Developing a drug requires a series of procedures, from the identification of the agent to the final availability of a safe drug, which it may take years and not months, as mentioned in the aforementioned address.
- Although the World Health Organization (WHO) has played an important role in guiding and supporting governments and citizens on the COVID-19 pandemic in Venezuela, the National Institute of Hygiene is the competent body that should guarantee the registration and conditions of use of a new drug, in order to protect citizens.
Acfiman exhorted the Government of Maduro “Not to publish misleading information or create false expectations in the population about the availability of treatments against COVID-19.”
