President Trump’s White House physician, Navy Commander Dr. Sean Conley, reports that Trump is being treated with a Regeneron monoclonal antibody cocktail and has been taking zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and a daily aspirin.

Just this Tuesday,  George D. Yancopoulos, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Scientific Officer of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. stated about the still in test phase new monoclonal antibody cocktail:

After months of incredibly hard work by our talented team, we are extremely gratified to see that Regeneron’s antibody cocktail REGN-COV2 rapidly reduced viral load and associated symptoms in infected COVID-19 patients. The greatest treatment benefit was in patients who had not mounted their own effective immune response, suggesting that REGN-COV2 could provide a therapeutic substitute for the naturally-occurring immune response. These patients were less likely to clear the virus on their own, and were at greater risk for prolonged symptoms. We are highly encouraged by the robust and consistent nature of these initial data, as well as the emerging well-tolerated safety profile, and we have begun discussing our findings with regulatory authorities while continuing our ongoing trials. .

There were 275 individuals enrolled in the test and no unexpected safety findings have been reported by the Independent Data Monitoring Committee. –RW
UPDATE 1
Dr. Yancopoulos reports that Trump was given “the larger dose” of REGN-COV2.

Be seeing you
