COVID-19 virus damages blood vessels, causing clot or thrombus formation resulting in stroke and disruption of the body’s blood clotting system, leading to organ damage and death. Metabolic and immune dysregulation leads to higher mortality in diabetes patients. The AFO-202 derived Nichi-Glucan has potentials to alleviate the cytokine storm, minimize coagulation disruption, and prevent complications of Covid-19 by balancing blood glucose & cholesterol, according to the authors, who have earlier published its immune enhancement and modulation capabilities to help tackle Covid-19 (https://doi.org/10.3389/fimmu.2020.01548). Pilot studies in Diabetic and Dyslipidemic individuals from south Asian population also have been reported (https://doi.org/10.1155/2012/895370).
