Giuseppe R.Brera*

A sixty years old unvaccinated woman, a great smoker, with a determinate temperament and basic trust, and a previous history of breast cancer with a swab positive diagnosis of COVID-19 developed a
temperature of 40 degrees, with headache and cough, an indicator of a high cytokine storm. She received an integrated therapy based on translational medicine structured on well-studied natural pleiotropic molecules
integrated with Nimesulide and Doxiciclin. The woman recovered from the severe COVID-19 syndrome in four days and joined the swab negativity in 10 days from the beginning of symptoms returning to work on the 11th day.

Mass vaccination, the first time used to prevent a pandemic but with experimental mRNA and vectorial vaccines dangerous at the epigenetic-genetic level,[1] [2] [3] [4] and offered to the market with unreliable clinical research methods [5] [6] , and producing high rates of adverse effects and mortality, met in a minority of people also physicians and investigators a right diffidence and prudency to vaccinate people and themselves. These sera should have requested larger samples and a long time to be studied. The basic epistemological error caused by the lack of adoption in public health of the paradigm change of medical science and medicine, Person-Centered Medicine, must find an effective and cheap alternative allowing people primarily in countries with poor financial resources to prevent and care for viral and bacterial infections. To date, the deterministic-mechanistic paradigm used to cope with the pandemic implementing only biotechnology and profit is “Pathogen= mortality risk! and not the right indeterministic multidimensional one:” Pathogen-anti-pathogen allostasis = immunity-resilience- recovery”.[7] According to the Person-centered medicine primary prevention and therapy paradigm,clinical efforts must be addressed to improve life quality and psycho-biological resources to prevent and care for diseases and not to be problem-centered which improves only the disease-centered stock market. The World Health Charter should be adopted worldwide.

Anti-viral drugs and monoclonal antibodies are developed through fragmented research methods and show dangerous adverse effects while there are in nature pleiotropic, powerful and cheap molecules that, without adverse effects act contemporary at a biochemical and immunological level showing a great preventive action and efficacy and therapy. This is the road map for prevention and therapy based on the physiology revolution of “allostasis” (Sterling and Heyer) [8] substituting the obsolete concept of “Homeostasis”(Cannon) taught yet and unknown to most clinicians and investigators.

The anti-viral targets of prevention and a successful therapy anti-SARS-COV 2 variants of concern (VOC) must be addressed at the same time to prevent the virus binding to receptors, (barrier effect) inhibition of proteases, prevention of NK and CD8inactivation by viruses, re-activation of the P53 gene, preventing the critical anergy after the seventh day of the disease shared by patients with atherosclerosis -based comorbidities, reinforcement of natural humoral immunity, and prevention of the virus-induced viral allostatic metabolism and generation of anti-viral allostasis, prevention of cytokine storm-induced lung inflammation and antiviral allostasis in oral, nasal mucosae and upper respiratory ways, and an antiviral allostasis metabolism generation.

One of us recently introduced to the COVID prevention and early treatment of the epistemological concept of anti-viral allostasis and immunostimulation identifying the relativity of the SARS-COV 2 entry into cells and reviewing the anti-viral targets of naturals molecules spread worldwide [9] [10]  according to the Person-centered prevention strategy” inspired by Person-Centered Medicine, the current paradigm of Medical Science, [11] [12]  which at the clinical level introduced the Person-Centered Clinical Method that allows the physician the identification of the subjective-biological-environmental patient’s resources addressed to improve the person and lifestyle, [13]   not reducing the clinical case to be a probabilistic event of a natural law variation, [14] but concerning the relation with the person’s subjective being, comprising in existence and resulting in life quality related to the spiritual- psycho-neuro-endocrine, immunity  [15], and epigenetic individual system.

The COVID-19 prevention and early treatment inducing an anti-viral allostasis (AVAL) and immunostimulation (IMUST) is entrusted to the person’s natural immune system and can be reinforced by a resource-centered healthy lifestyle and powerful anti-viral substances with act as natural epigenetic programmers at immunity -biochemical level. Nutrition quality is part of a healthy or bad life quality. Curcumin, Aloe, Lactoferrin, Epigallocatechin, Beta-glucans Sphingosine, Mannan binding lectins, and Quercetin are natural molecules with a well-documented powerful pleiotropic antiviral allostasis and immunostimulant actions  [16] [17] . Vit A and C are immunostimulants and VIT D metabolite, [18] cathelicidin has direct virucide properties. Nimesulide has stronger anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, with well-studied significant therapeutic successes,[19] and its association with maltodextrins results also in immunostimulation. [20] [21]  Doxiciclin has also antibacterial and antiviral properties. [22] Conversely the antipyretic tachipirine, suggested by the Italian Health Ministry to treat early COVID is dangerous because it promotes coagulation and has not ant-inflammatory effects. [23]

A sixty years old unvaccinated woman, a great smoker, with a determinate temperament and good basic trust, and a previous history of breast cancer with a swab positive diagnosis of COVID-19 developed a temperature of 40 degrees, with headache and cough, an indicator of a high cytokine storm. Tachipirin administration, prescribed by phone by an emergency unit according to the Italian health ministry indications was suspended and a translational therapy integrated with drugs was prescribed with the resolution of COVID-19 syndrome in four days and negativity of swab in 10 days. The woman started to work on the 11th day. Posology is indicated in table 1 (Table 1)

Genotoxic and immunosuppressive mRNA and vectorial vaccines, silencing microRNA and/or hybridizing DNA [24]  produce only circulating IGG, waning in a short time and are inactive against VOC not induce protective mucosal IGA and do not generate Memory B Cell in lungs [25]  with a high rate of life-threatening adverse effects. Cells’ methylation induces an increased risk of cancer. [26]     Monoclonal antibodies and anti-viral drugs have many adverse effects and are expensive, while translational medicine and its integration significant could promote effective prevention and therapy worldwide at low cost with high availability of natural anti-viral molecules. Moreover, there is the impossibility to vaccinate the entire world, and integrated therapy could offer cheap possibilities to all for self-care through health education. Person-centered translational prevention and therapy based on preventive antiviral allostasis and immuno-stimulation and self-care in poor countries all over the world, by correcting the epistemological error determining the failure of the pandemic prevention  is a new perspective for public health to prevent communicable and non-communicable diseases worldwide, without submitting people to experimental mass vaccines.
