baricitinib is an approved drug (EMA (2017), FDA (2018))
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Baricitinib is a JAK1 and 2 selective inhibitor. The compound is orally bioavailable.

SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19: Through the application of proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms baricitinib has been predicted to possess antiviral activity in addition to its known anti-inflammatory efficacy [1,8-9]. Antiviral activity is predicted to arise from inhibition of the numb-associated kinase (NAK) AAK1 which is an important regulator of clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Inhibition of AAK1 would likely reduce the ability of viruses to infect lung cells, and is being proposed as a pharmacological mechanism that warrants further investigation as a treatment for SARS-CoV-2 infection (COVID-19 disease). In addition, the powerful anti-inflammatory activity of baricitinib (and potentially other approved JAK inhibitors such as fedratinib, and ruxolitinib) is likely to be effective against the pathological effects of raised cytokine levels (e.g. interferon γ) in patients with severe COVID-19. Short term use of baricitinib during the course of SARS-CoV-2 infection (7-14 days) is not anticipated to cause serious side-effects.
