The Federal Medical and Biological Agency has submitted a dossier to the Ministry of Health of Russia for permission for a post-registration clinical trial of a drug for the treatment of a new coronavirus infection «MIR-19» for medical use in outpatient care in the first days after the confirmation of the diagnosis of a new coronavirus infection (COVID-), — the press service of the agency notes.

As Khaitov explained, the main components of the drug are synthetic molecules of small interfering RNA (siRNA), which, inside the infected cell of the body, target the pathogen genome and contribute to its degradation.
