International media report on Leiden dosage app for corona patients
Coen van Hasselt's research group quickly produced an app that enables doctors to determine the correct dosage of commonly used medicines for corona patients. Media in the Netherlands and abroad reported on the app.
While the coronavirus is affecting more and more patients, doctors and researchers are busy finding an effective treatment. Because the development of new medications can take a long time, doctors often use existing treatments. But for many of these drugs, it is not yet known what the safe and effective dosage should be when dealing with COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
Coen van Hasselt’s research group, part of the Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research, has developed an app that doctors can use to determine what dosage of several kinds of drugs is best suited for a patient. Through news aggregator Medical Xpress the app reached several international media.
