San Francisco doctor Jacob Glanville, who was featured in the Netflix documentary called "Pandemic", has just announced that his team may have discovered a cure for COVID-19. It's now being tested by the U.S. military.
“I’m happy to report that my team has successfully taken five antibodies that back in 2002 were determined to bind and neutralize, block and stop the SARS virus,” he told the Radio New Zealand program “Checkpoint.” “We’ve evolved them in our laboratory, so now they very vigorously block and stop the SARS-CoV-2 [COVID-19] virus as well.”
The biotech company called Distributed, run by Glanville, tweeted their announcement on Tuesday.
So, how exactly would it work?
“You could give it to a patient who’s sick, experiencing COVID-19, then within 20 minutes of receiving the shot, their body is flooded with those antibodies,” Glanville said. “Those antibodies will surround and stick all over a virus and make it so it’s no longer infectious. You could also give it to a doctor or a nurse or an elderly person and they would then have those antibodies in them that would prevent them from getting infected in the first place.”
If all goes well during military testing, Glanville said his team will ramp up production of the drug and potentially begin human trials by the end of the summer.
