Covid, Artemisia afra, luteolin.

Several authors have documented the efficacy of luteolin against pulmonary diseases. The highest concentration of luteolin is found in Artemisia afra at 1.9 mg/g. In Artemisia absinthium 0.7 mg/g are found. A few studies show only traces of luteolin in Artemisia annua

Mucus overproductionis one of the most important pathological features of chronic inflammatory airway diseases that contribute to morbidity and mortality. It reduces ciliar motility, damages local defensive functions and promotes bacterial colonization. As a natural flavonoid luteolin has multiple biological activities, such as anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. A Chinese study found that the administration of luteolin effectively attenuates mucus overproduction.

Strong support comes from a very recent study. The flavone luteolin has been shown to have broad antiviral properties. Luteolin specifically binds to surface spike protein of SARS-Cov-2 and inhibits entry of the virus into host cells. Moreover, luteolin has anti-inflammatory properties and inhibits mast cells which invade the lungs when triggered by viruses.

This study from Boston relies on a previous study from Beijing. In a two-step screening assay to detect small molecules of herbal origin that interfere with the entry of the SARS virus into the hosts cells, one of the most efficient molecules to bind with the surface spike proteins found was luteolin.
