    The emergence of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) disease MESHD ( COVID-19 MESHD) has posed a serious threat to global health. As no specific therapeutics are yet available to control disease evolution, more in-depth understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms induced by SARS-CoV-2 will help to characterize new targets for the management of COVID-19 MESHD. The present study identified a specific set of biological pathways altered in primary human lung epithelium upon SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD, and a comparison with SARS-CoV from the 2003 pandemic was studied. The transcriptomic profiles were also exploited as possible novel therapeutic targets, and anti-signature perturbation analysis predicted potential drugs to control disease progression. Among them, Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase ( MEK HGNC), serine-threonine kinase ( AKT HGNC), mammalian target of rapamycin HGNC ( mTOR HGNC) and I kappa B Kinase (IKK) inhibitors emerged as candidate drugs. Finally, sex-specific differences that may underlie the higher COVID-19 MESHD mortality in men are proposed.
