Montelukast functions as a leukotriene receptor antagonist (cysteinyl leukotriene receptors). It works by blocking the action of leukotriene D4 in the lungs resulting in decreased inflammation and relaxation of smooth muscle.

Montelukast is effective in treating the overall symptoms of allergic rhinitis when compared against placebo. It is also effective in treating the night-time symptoms of allergic rhinitis when compared against oral antihistamines.

Montelukast is proposed to potentiate its effects through two probable mechanisms:

  1. Its effect in preventing the cytokine storm by modulating the immune response.
  2. The direct effect on the virus which is explored using the computational docking.
