RNA-seq of SARS-CoV-2-infected human primary hepatocyte-derived spheroids upon interferon a2 and baricitinib treatment

ABSTRACT: Biological replicates of liver spheroids derived from primary hepatocytes were treated with IFNa2 and/or baricitinib for 24 h and subsequently infected with Sars-CoV-2. The cells were harvested 48 h time after infection. Total RNA was extracted and sequenced with a strand-specific paired end RNA-seq protocol.

Using AI we identified baricitinib as possessing anti-viral and anti-cytokine efficacy. We now show a 71% (95% CI 0.15-0.58) mortality benefit in 83 patients with moderate-severe SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia with few drug-induced adverse events, including a large elderly cohort (median age 81 years). A further 48 cases with mild-moderate pneumonia recovered uneventfully. Using organotypic 3D cultures of primary human liver cells, we demonstrate that interferon-alpha-2 (IFNα2) significantly increases ACE  ...[more]
