A global trial designed to test whether the anti-malaria drugs hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine can prevent infection with COVID-19 is to restart after being approved by British regulators. 

New information released by GlobalData showed that there are now more than 718 pipeline drugs associated with COVID-19.

The American Medical Association (AMA) doubled down on the organization’s stance against using off-label medicines such as hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to treat COVID-19 patients.

Pinpoint Therapeutics believes that the company’s approach to treat therapy-resistant cancers also may be effective against COVID-19.
