Melatonin synthesized in the lungs acts as a barrier against SARS-CoV-2, preventing expression of genes that encode proteins in cells such as resident macro-phages in the nose and pulmonary alveoli, and epithelial cells lining the alveoli, all of which are entry points for the virus. The hormone, therefore, prevents infection of cells by the virus and inhibits the immune response so that the virus remains in the respiratory tract for a few days, eventually leaving to find another host.
The discovery by researchers at the University of São Paulo (USP) in Brazil helps understand why some people are not infected or do not manifest symptoms of COVID-19 even when reliably diagnosed as carriers of the virus by RT-PCR. As well, it offers the prospect of nasal administration of melatonin, in drops or as a spray, to prevent disease from developing in pre-symptomatic patients.
Clinical trials will be needed to prove the therapeutic efficacy of melatonin against the virus, the researchers stressed in an article published in the journal Melatonin Research.
The study was supported by FAPESP, The São Paulo Research Foundation.
“We showed that melatonin produced in the lung acts as a barrier against SARS-CoV-2, preventing the virus from entering the epithelium, activating the immune system and triggering the production of ant”bodies,” Regina Pekel-mann Markus, a professor at USP’s Institute of Biosciences (IB) and principal investigator for the project, told Agência FAPESP.
“This action mechanism by pulmonary melatonin must also involve other respiratory viruses such as influenza,” she added.

Your access to Complementary and Alternative medicine (CAM) therapies – also known as “Integrative Medicine” – in Ontario is being put at risk by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO). If urgent action is not taken, critical services offered by physicians will no longer be available to you.
CAM includes a holistic approach to health, often combining tools from both conventional medicine with natural remedies and therapies. Examples include (but are not limited to):
The CPSO has proposed a new CAM policy that will severely limit the availability of CAM therapies and the practice of integrative medicine offered by medical doctors in Ontario. If the CPSO’s new policy is passed in its proposed form, Ontario will have the most restrictive CAM regulatory framework of all the provinces and territories in Canada. It will be harder for physicians to integrate CAM treatments into their practices without the fear of being disciplined by the CPSO. Doctors who currently practice integrative medicine will be forced to change their practice or leave Ontario. The result: you will be denied access to treatment options that you may need and want.
We call upon the CPSO to forgo the proposed revisions that will make it harder for Integrative Medicine physicians to use CAM treatments, including by:
We call upon the CPSO to add concerned patients and integrative medicine physicians to its CAM policy working group to help create a more balanced policy.
