New research suggests that antibiotics can effectively target gut bacteria harboring the virus that causes COVID-19, as well as toxin-like peptides contributing to COVID-19 symptoms. In a study involving 211 participants published in the Journal of Medical Virology, individuals who received early antibiotic treatment after a COVID-19 infection recovered faster than those who did not receive antibiotics.

The authors had previously investigated the efficacy of certain antibiotics in SARS-CoV-2 infected bacterial cultures in vitro, and this new study shows promising results with the combination of 2 antibiotics (Amoxicillin and Rifaximin) within the first 3 days.

Furthermore, a significant number of patients who received antibiotics during the acute phase of COVID-19 within the first three days and over a period of seven days did not develop Long-COVID.

“Our findings suggest that antibiotics should be considered for acute infections and Long-COVID. The study also lays the groundwork for additional vaccination strategies,” said co-author Marina Piscopo, PhD, from the University of Naples Federico in Italy.
