Antibody Drug Being Trialled
« on: Monday 05 October 20 20:31 BST (UK) »
An Experimental Antibody drug is being trialled in the UK (REGN-COV2).

A chap from Wellcome has been on Sky News discussing it.

I heard the president was being given a UK drug, but I'm surprised to see it's still being trialled.  However, I suppose if it's the only one that has a chance of stopping the virus from entering and attacking human cells then it's worth a try.

On the other hand the head of the team  of hospital medics treating the president has already confessed that he had already told porky pies to the press regarding the president's health .

I wonder if they'll give it to the members of his security team who were in the car with him, if they catch it.

This drug doesn't even seem to have a Licence here yet for Covid?

With any drug they have to try and decide whether a person got better themselves or whether a drug genuinely works and therefore has a benefit.

I admit I am a cynic, but does anyone else wonder if Trump has shares in the company?

The news I heard earlier implied that it wasn't so much a trial of this drug, but a trial of a new combination of drugs including this one. Apparently this combination has not been tried before.

Yes, a "cocktail" of drugs is a combination of drugs.

One believed to be Remdesivir ...

Some of Pres. T's staff are dropping like flies and testing Postive with this Covid-19, so we have absolute proof of one thing Social Distancing keeping your distance and mouth covering etc., does seem to have its merits.

One bit of film shows Staff cuddling and embracing with NO face covering at a White House garden event and is being called the Super Spreader Event by one network.

Bend the rules and have an increased chance of contracting Covid.

Keep safe, Hands, Face, Space.
