Research Update

Palmitoylethanolamide as a prophylaxis and treatment for influenza and other respiratory viruses.


Article Highlights
• Viruses such as influenza and coronavirus provoke both antiviral and pro-inflammatory responses in the human body.
• Excessive cytokine production or the ‘cytokine storm’ provoked by these viruses can lead to tissue damage, organ dysfunction and increased morbidity.
• Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is now well recognised for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic and neuroprotective effects, and recent clinical trials have targeted its benefits for neuropathic pain.
• However, PEA was originally used as a therapy for the common cold and influenza, with six double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials conducted in the 1970s demonstrating its efficacy as both a prophylactic and treatment for colds and influenza.
