    Regeneron Clinic at a monoclonal antibody treatment site in Pembroke Pines, Florida. I must admit, it confounds me that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is so openly ignorant. And it infuriates me that his ignorance is costing so many people their lives. His desire for power in the Republican Party has driven him to—knowingly or unknowingly, I’m not exactly sure which—kill his constituents.  His unwavering determination to ignore the science and plod along perpetuating a falsehood that Regeneron monoclonal antibody treatments are the answer to solving COVID-19 versus vaccinations and masks when the medical community says otherwise is irresponsible at best and criminal at worst. Now the governor has opened five new (useless) monoclonal antibody treatment sites across the state, and boy has he got Floridians fooled. Last month, after weeks of being MIA during an unprecedented surge of COVID-19 cases in his state, DeSantis held a press conference in Fort Lauderdale, where he spent much of his time dismissing COVID-19 vaccines as a help, downplaying the severity of symptoms of the omicron variant, and whining and complaining about how the federal government isn’t giving him the monoclonal treatment meds he’s...
    Conservative anti-vaxxer, Dennis Prager, claims he has caught coronavirus deliberately to give himself natural immunity he says a shot won't provide.  Speaking on his radio show, which he was forced to broadcast from his home rather than a studio, Prager, who is 73, claimed that he socialized with strangers on purpose in the hope of catching the virus.  'It is infinitely preferable to have natural immunity than vaccine immunity and that is what I hoped for the entire time,' Prager explained, having begun the broadcast with a cough.  'Hence, I so engaged with strangers, constantly hugging them, taking photos with them, knowing that I was making myself very susceptible to getting COVID. Conservative pundit Dennis Prager said had COVID-19 and had contracted it on purpose by socializing and getting close to strangers Prager said he continues to take a variety of other remedies including Regeneron, zinc, azithromycin, hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, pictured above Dennis Prager announces he has COVID-19 while ranting against vaccines and declaring that he was trying to get infected https://t.co/z12VuK3Wrw pic.twitter.com/0OP0Ge2aYi— Jason Campbell (@JasonSCampbell) October 18, 2021 'Which...
    Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” that President Joe Biden was playing pathetic political games with people’s lives by rationing Florida’s supply of Regeneron’s monoclonal antibody. DeSantis said, “We set up 25 different sites throughout the state telling people that early treatment saves lives. What we were seeing is when we have the Delta surge, most of the people being admitted to the hospital not only didn’t get monoclonal antibodies, they didn’t even know about monoclonal antibodies. This is not something that people like Fauci were talking about. So we helped raise the profile and also expand access. The results are the statewide hospital census for COVID patients has gone down 34 days in a row. Our hospital admissions on a daily basis have gone down about 75%.” He continued, “Here’s the thing, when it’s apparent that it works, that is on the Biden administration decided to take from Florida and to cut our allotment. So what we had to do— and the reason is they control all the Regeneron, they had a deal with them, so they dramatically cut our supply. So what we did — we did a deal with GlaxoSmithKline, who also has an effective monoclonal antibody. So we now...
    "I assumed your letter was to notify me that you were issuing a retraction of the partisan smear piece you published last week. Instead, you had the temerity to complain about the deserved blowback that your botched and discredited attempt to concoct a political narrative has received," DeSantis wrote. "This ploy will not work to divert attention from the fact that the Associated Press published a false narrative that will lead some to decline effective treatment for COVID infections," he added. Last week, AP journalist Brendan Farrington reported that Citadel, a Chicago-based hedge fund, has invested $15.9 million in Regeneron Pharmaceutical Inc., the company that manufactures the monoclonal antibody treatment heavily promoted by DeSantis. Citadel CEO Ken Griffin donated $10.75 million to a political committee that supports DeSantis, and Farrington's article implies that DeSantis is promoting Regeneron's drug over COVID-19 vaccines to benefit his top donor. Pushaw commented for the AP's story, observing that Citadel holds far more shares of Pfizer and Moderna than Regeneron. Critics were also quick to point out that DeSantis is promoting...
    "Fox & Friends" has joined the Governor Ron DeSantis movement of promoting Regeneron's highly-experimental COVID-19 antibody therapy as a treatment option instead of the preventative coronavirus vaccine, and is falsely claiming that most people hospitalized with the coronavirus are treated with the drug. "You know it's interesting," Fox & Friends' Ainsley Earhardt said Wednesday, "Greg Abbott, he's in our prayers this morning because he announced that he tested positive for COVID yesterday. He has been vaccinated and still got COVID," she said, appearing to falsely imply the coronavirus vaccine does not work. "But I think he's doing okay, he's planning on getting the Regeneron. No symptoms, he said," she added. Regeneron's drug is supposed to be prescribed only to patients who have symptoms, and is considered "investigational," according to the FDA. "What's interesting though is if you don't get vaccinated and you go to the hospital most of the time you're going to get Regeneron," Earhardt, who is not a medical professional, added falsely. "But Regeneron or the antibodies, [is] basically still getting vaccinated because they're sticking you with an...

    A review has been launched after more than 40 people were mistakenly injected with the Regeneron antibody treatment instead of Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine at a West Virginia clinic.  The West Virginia National Guard announced the monumental blunder Thursday revealing that 42 people were given the antibody cocktail at a vaccination clinic in Boone County in the southwestern part of the state the day before.  Officials insisted the antibody injection is 'not harmful' to the individuals but said the health department will follow up 'regularly' with them anyway. The group has also been prioritized and offered the real vaccine Thursday.   West Virginia Adjutant General James Hoyer, who is heading up the state's vaccine rollout programme, blamed what he described as a 'breakdown in the process' and 'a few human errors' for the mistake.  Boone County Health Department said it is working with the West Virginia National Guard and state health department to 'review all internal policies and procedures'.  More than 40 people have been mistakenly injected with the Regeneron antibody treatment instead of Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine at a West Virginia clinic...
    Housing Secretary Dr. Ben Carson has described his frightening experience with COVID-19 – as well as his effort to treat it with an unproven remedy followed by a special intervention by President Trump to get him experimental drugs. And based on the symptoms he described, the unproven remedy he tried could have even contributed to his symptoms.  Carson, who was hospitalized last month after testing positive for the coronavirus, told Fox News his symptoms got so bad he 'couldn't even keep water down.' It began with fever, chills and some 'aches,' said Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon. Housing Secretary Dr. Ben Carson was hospitalized last month after testing positive for the coronavirus 'It wasn't so bad. I took some oleander extract. I got much better,' said Carson.  'And then the bottom fell out. Because of the co-morbidities, I couldn't mount an appropriate antibody response and I deteriorated very rapidly,' he said. 'Fevers, chills, couldn't even keep water down, aches coughing respiratory problems.'  Oleander extract is an unproven treatment touted by My Pillow executive and Trump associate Mike Lindell.

    Two doctors are expressing their concerns about the Trump administration's plans to quickly roll out coronavirus antibody treatments. In an editorial published in the Journal of the American Medical Association on Wednesday, the physicians, from Harvard University, discussed REGN-COV2, the cocktail President Donald Trump received while he was ill.   They say many questions about the drug remain unanswered including which patients should receive it, how to distribute the treatment and how much it will cost.  'More treatments for SARS-CoV-2 are urgently needed,' they wrote. 'Shifting the attention from inpatient to outpatient management of COVID-19 requires transparency in clinical efficacy, widespread equitable distribution of novel therapeutics, and controls on cost.'  It comes just two days after the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Eli Lilly's monoclonal antibody treatment for emergency use authorization (EUA) on Monday, with plans to roll it out as early as this week.   Two Harvard doctors wrote an editorial expressing worry about the White House's plan to roll out Regeneron's experimental antibody treatment for COVID-19, which was given to President Trump when he was ill.

    President Donald Trump said on Friday he is off all the medication he's been taking to treat his COVID-19, telling talk radio host Rush Limbaugh he feels 'perfect.' Trump called into Limbaugh's show for a 'radio rally' with the popular conservative radio star while he remains quarantined inside the White House because of his bout with the coronavirus. 'I feel perfect,' the president said at the top of his two hour interview.  'I mean I feel better now than I did two weeks ago. It's crazy and I recovered immediately - almost immediately,' he said. He also said he was no longer taking any medication for COVID, a change from what he said the day before.  Trump said Thursday he was off all treatment except for dexamethasone, a powerful steroid which can cause insomnia, mania, mood swings, and rage. It has shown promise for treating patients with a severe case of COVID-19 who are getting supplemental oxygen. Some doctors and Speaker Nancy Pelosi have expressed concern the steroid could affect the president's mental state given its side effects, citing some...
    Donald Trump's antibody treatment was developed with cells which are ultimately derived from an aborted fetus, it has emerged.  The Regeneron 'antibody cocktail' administered to the president was tested using a supply of HEK 293T human cells, which have been cloned and modified in science labs for decades but originate from the kidney of an aborted baby in the 1970s.   According to the MIT Technology Review, labs including Regeneron use the 293T cells to manufacture small particles which mimic the coronavirus.   The company did not deny the link to abortion, but said the modified cells available today are 'not considered fetal tissue'.  'It's how you want to parse it,' said spokeswoman Alexandra Bowie, adding that 'we did not otherwise use fetal tissue'.  Trump, who has sought to restrict abortion rights throughout his presidency, has hailed the success of Regeneron and promised to make it free to the public after his apparent recovery from Covid-19.   Donald Trump speaks outside the White House following his apparent recovery from Covid-19 which he has attributed to Regeneron's 'antibody cocktail'  Trump was given an experimental...

    Getty President Donald Trump returns to the White House from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on October 5, 2020. His antibody cocktail did not use human fetal cells. False rumors are circulating claiming that President Donald Trump’s monoclonal antibody treatment from Regeneron was made with human fetal or embryonic stem cells. Regeneron confirmed with Heavy that the rumor about REGN-COV2 is not true. This antibody cocktail was not developed using human fetal or embryo stem cells. Here’s what you need to know.REGN-COV2 Was Not Made with Human Embryonic CellsAlexandra Bowie of Regeneron confirmed with Heavy that Regeneron did not create its REGN-COV2 treatment using human embryonic stem cells. She wrote: “This particular discovery program (REGN-COV2) did not involve human stem cells or ESCs.” According to a September 29 statement from Regeneron, the antibody cocktail has been shown to reduce viral load and alleviate symptoms in non-hospitalized patients.

Regeneron wrote: “This trial is part of a larger program that also includes studies of REGN-COV2 for the treatment of hospitalized patients,...
    NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW) – There’s been a lot of talk about the experimental antibody cocktail given to the president. Researchers have been studying it since June, and it is available for patients here in the DFW area. Dr. Mezgebe Berhe with Baylor University Medical Center has been involved with the Regeneron study since enrolling the first patients in the country at Baylor Scott and White Research institute back in June. He said the idea is similar to convalescent plasma, but in this case the antibodies are manufactured in a lab. Last week, Regeneron announced some promising preliminary data. Researchers said the antibodies appear safe and seemed to help, especially for those who got treatment early on. “Those patients who have early disease, who are expected to have a large amount of virus, had a significant reduction on the amount of virus after treatment compared to the placebo group who did not show that kind of reduction in the amount of virus,” said Dr. Berhe. He said the idea is that by lowering the amount of virus, doctors can improve symptoms,...

    WASHINGTON (CBSLA) — President Donald Trump was transported to Walter Reed Medical Center aboard the Marine One on Friday after sharing through social media that he and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for coronavirus. The White House said Trump is being treated with an experimental drug cocktail. The president’s physician, Sean P. Conley, released a memo Friday saying Trump received an 8 gram dose of Regeneron’s polyclonal antibody cocktail “as a precautionary measure.” The medication is still undergoing a clinical trial, with the first data from 275 non-hospitalized patients showing that “it reduced viral load and the time to alleviate symptoms,” the company said in a press release this week. Regeneron confirmed it provided the experimental antibody cocktail REGN-COV2 to the White House under a compassionate use request. Along with the experimental drug, Conley said the president is also taking zinc, vitamin D, famotidine (a medication for heartburn or acid reflux), melatonin and a daily aspirin. Late Friday afternoon, the president was transported to Walter Reed Medical Center for a few days of treatment — “out of an abundance of caution,”...

    (CNN)A medicine that may treat and prevent Covid-19 is now being tested in patients in multiple sites around the United States, according to an announcement Thursday from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.It is the first trial of a Covid-19 antibody cocktail in the United States. If successful, Regeneron hopes it could be available by the fall. The clinical trial started Wednesday. Regeneron said its antibody cocktail will be tested in four separate study populations: people who are hospitalized with Covid-19; people who have symptoms for the disease, but are not hospitalized; people who are healthy but are at a high risk for getting sick; and healthy people who have come into close contact with a person who is sick.
