A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

SARS-CoV-2 epidemics raises a considerable issue of public health at the planetary scale. There is a pressing urgency to find treatments based upon currently available scientific knowledge. Therefore, we tentatively propose a hypothesis which hopefully might ultimately help save lives. Based on the current scientific literature and on new epidemiological data which reveal that current smoking status appears to be a protective factor against the infection by SARS-CoV-2 [1], we hypothesize that the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) plays a key role in the pathophysiology of Covid-19 infection and might represent a target for the prevention and control of Covid-19 infection.L’épidémie de SARS-Cov-2 pose un problème considérable de santé publique à l’échelle planétaire. Il y a urgence extrême de découvrir des traitements qui se fondent sur les connaissances scientifiques disponibles. Nous proposons donc une hypothèse plausible mais provisoire qui puisse le moment venu contribuer à sauver des vies. Elle se fonde sur la littérature scientifique disponible et sur des données épidémiologiques nouvelles qui révèlent que le statut de fumeur parait être un facteur de protection contre l’infection par SARS-Cov-2 [1]. Nous proposons l’hypothèse que le récepteur nicotinique de l’acétylcholine (nAChR) joue un rôle critique dans la pathophysiologie de l’infection Covid-19 et puisse représenter une cible pour la prévention et le contrôle de l’infection.
