  "abstract": "<p>The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that has emerged from Wuhan, China in December 2019 has spread to almost all countries in the world causing a dramatic number of deaths. The current absence of antiviral treatment against the SARS-CoV-2 urges the scientific community to accelerate the drug discovery research process.</p>\n\n<p>One way to identify potential treatments and to be able to administer it swiftly is to focus on drug repurposing studies, i.e. to investigate the SARS-CoV-2 antiviral potential of drugs that have already been approved for human use.</p>\n\n<p>Proteins that are crucial for the survival and replication of the virus are the most attractive targets for such studies. Here we have focused on the SARS-CoV-2 main protease (3CLpro) that plays an essential role in the virus replication process by screening ~2000 approved drugs (and 6 experimental ones) against this particular protein using a pharmacophore-based assay.</p>\n\n<p>This is one part of a multi-target screen emphasising the main protease (Mrpo), the RNA-dependent-RNA-polymerase (RdRp) and human ACE2.
