Scientists have developed antibodies that can kill coronavirus
Coronavirus Treatment
May 8th, 2020 at 10:39 AM

Researchers from the Netherlands and Japan have developed antibodies for the novel coronavirus that can neutralize the pathogen in labs. The drugs still need to prove their effectiveness in human trials, but they might be ready for wide use before a vaccine.

Israel has also developed its own antibody compound, joining countries like America and Korea that are also studying monoclonal antibody therapy for COVID-19 patients.

Study Shows Cannabis May Block COVID-19 Infection
MAY 12, 2020 3:20 PM PDT

Researchers from the University of Lethbridge, Canada, have found that cannabis may be able to block COVID-19 infections. In findings published in a preliminary research paper, they hope that their findings encourage further research into the possibility of cannabis-based treatments for the virus.

For the study, the researchers led by Dr. Igor Kovalchuck developed over 800 new cannabis sativa lines and extracts. They worked to develop strains high in anti-inflammatory cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD), as the compound has been proposed to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. They then used simulations to map out how each strain may impact COVID-19 infections in human oral, airway and intestinal tissues. In particular, they monitored each strain’s ability to modulate ACE2 levels, an enzyme previously linked to COVID-19 infection.

In the end, the researchers identified 13 CBD extracts that are able to modulate ACE2 levels. Their data also suggested that some strains were also able to down-regulate serine protease TMPRSS2, another protein critical for COVID-19 to enter host cells and spread throughout the body.

From this comment:

UFL study of Remdisivir is the first to show any benefit. …and the results were not earth-shaking at that…

Quote:
“Patients with severe cases of COVID-19 who were treated with the investigational drug remdesivir recovered faster than those who did not take it, based on results released this week of an international clinical trial that included UF Health.

The study shows patients treated with the antiviral drug spent four fewer days in the hospital, from 15 days down to 11, on average. Additionally, the study showed mortality from COVID-19 infection dropped from 11.6% to 8%. This is the first study to show a clear benefit to patients suffering from COVID-19.”

In those two articles published by the UFL – there is a discrepancy and a bias in the reporting of the two drugs and the titles are misleading. Remdisivir is an expensive drug. No mention of short or longterm side effects of Remdisivir – but they write all kinds of side effects with HCQ – that didn’t occur. The truth is – Remdisivir has not been proved to be the ‘standard of care’ for CV 19

Here is a bit of history in a 3.6 minute audio and text. Excellent reminder of recent past.

“Elvis Was King, Ike Was President, and 116,000 Americans Died in a Pandemic”

I’m certain I had the Hong Kong flu while I was 8 months pregnant with Daughter Dearest, and quite possibly what laid me up for 2 weeks and 10 pound loss in 1959 was the Asian Flu. We didn’t close down our country.
