Editor's Note
Researchers from Arizona State University (ASU) and Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine are looking into herbal treatments for COVID-19. Researchers started with 30 to 40 botanicals that have shown varying degrees of success treating the novel coronavirus and other similar viruses. The effort is spearheaded by Jeffrey Langland, a virologist with 33 years of experience, who hopes to put evidence-based medicine behind potentially therapeutic botanicals and share that data with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Arizona State University and the  Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine  in Tempe are collaborating on a research project focused on finding botanicals — or medicinal, plant-based herbal treatments — for COVID-19, the deadly disease caused by the novel coronavirus. The effort is spearheaded by Jeffrey Langland, a virologist with 33 years of experience.

Langland is an assistant research professor at ASU’s  Biodesign Center for Immunotherapy, Vaccines and Virotherapy , and an associate professor of medical microbiology at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe ...

Their starting point is a collection of 30 to 40 botanical compounds, called herbal products, which have shown varying degrees of success treating the novel coronavirus and other viruses like it. Among them are those derived from isatis, Chinese licorice, and houttuynia.
