Cyclophilins play a key role in the lifecycle of coronaviruses. Alisporivir (Debio 025) is a non-immunosuppressive analogue of cyclosporin A with potent cyclophilin inhibition properties. Alisporivir reduced SARS-CoV-2 RNA production in a dose-dependent manner in VeroE6 cell line, with an EC50 of 0.46±0.04 μM. Alisporivir inhibited a post-entry step of the SARS-CoV-2 lifecycle. These results justify that a proof-of-concept Phase 2 trial be rapidly conducted with alisporivir in patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection.Copyright © 2020 American Society for Microbiology.
