In April, the Dow University announced to develop the IVIG treatment to cure the COVID-19 and after the approval of Drug Regulatory Authority Pakistan DRAP the university started its study and research to prepare a successful remedy against the virus.
The Dow University of Health Sciences DUHS is now successful in developing the IVIG treatment.
