The Daily Pennsylvanian: Penn Med professor leads research team on repurposing drugs for COVID-19 treatment. “Penn researchers are studying how drugs that are typically prescribed for other diseases may also be used to treat coronavirus patients. Perelman School of Medicine Assistant Professor of Medicine David Fajgenbaum, who is leading the drug repurposing efforts, said doctors across the world have treated coronavirus patients with over 150 drugs so far. Fajgenbaum said he began studying the effectiveness of these drugs on March 13, with researchers from Penn’s Center for Cytokine Storm Treatment & Laboratory, the Castleman Disease Collaborative Network, which is his independent foundation, and the Medical School.”
