According to CBS News reported on the 18th, President trump said he would like to consider the oleander extract recommended by Michael Lindell, CEO of mywillow company, as a treatment drug for new coronavirus, although the extract comes from a poisonous plant, and there is no medical research to show whether the extract is safe or effective for human body. < p > < p > on Monday, when CBS News reporter Paula Reid asked if trump was urging the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve the use of oleandrin extracted from oleandrin to treat the virus, the president replied, “No.” “I’ve heard of it,” he added Oleander is a poisonous plant. “All parts of this plant are toxic,” says botanist Cassandra quaff. If you eat it, it will lead to arrhythmia or arrhythmia, which can be fatal to humans and animals < / P > < p > Lindel was called his “original supporter” by President trump. Last week, Lindell joined the board of directors of Phoenix biotechnology, which is seeking to develop and sell the product. Lindell himself has no scientific background. < p > < p > Lindell said Andrew Whitney, the company’s chief executive, contacted him on Easter to promote the extract as a treatment. According to the Washington Post, Lindel helped arrange a meeting and Whitney personally lobbied the president at the White House. In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Lindell said he had been taking apocynin since April, calling it “a miracle of all time.”. Lindell claims that the extract has been tested in humans, but there is no evidence to prove this. An unpublished and peer-reviewed study claims to have tested the effect of apocynin on African green monkey cells in vitro, saying it “significantly” reduces virus production. < / P > < p > the lead researcher of the study refuted the company’s claim. In a statement, Dr. Scott weaver, a virologist at the University of Texas’s Galveston division of medicine, said in a statement that the laboratory’s results “are only the first step” and do not necessarily indicate that drugs made with this substance will be effective in humans. < / P > < p > kuyff, an assistant professor at Emory University who was not involved in the study, pointed out that the test did not address “the well-known cardiotoxicity caused by eating this chemical in animals or humans.”. < p > < p > Whitney told the media that the study is under peer review and said consumers have more than one way to get the drug. He said he was studying the process of seeking approval for it as a drug to treat the new coronavirus, but he was also trying to get FDA approval to market it as a nutritional product, which he said could happen soon.
