The purpose of this study was to explore the mechanism of acute lung injury following SARS-COV-2 infection and to predict potential therapeutic agents, Differential analysis, enrichment analysis and protein interaction analysis of the whole genome expression profile of SARS-COV-2 infection from gene expression database (GEO) using R language. Then use EpiIMed to predict potential therapeutic drugs. It was found that the whole genome expression profile of SARS-COV-2 infection was complicated. Including the effects on MAPK, IL17, NF-κB and other signal pathways, at the same time, IFITM1、HLA-F、C3、IRF9、STAT1、IL6、MX1、ISG15、IRF7、IFIT1 were screened out as the core genes leading to the regulation of acute lung injury. EpiMed platform predicts that cidofovir, famciclovir and paeony may be effective in lung injury caused by SARS-COV-2 infection. Our research is helpful to explore the mechanism of acute lung injury after SARS-COV-2 infection, to find potential therapeutic drugs, and to provide theoretical basis for the treatment of clinical patients and the optimization of diagnosis and treatment programs.
