Eli Lilly clinical trials reducing rate of COVID-19 hospitalizations

first_img Pinterest WhatsApp Twitter This undated electron microscope image made available by the U.S. National Institutes of Health in February 2020 shows the Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, orange, emerging from the surface of cells, gray, cultured in the lab. Also known as 2019-nCoV, the virus causes COVID-19. The sample was isolated from a patient in the U.S. (NIAID-RML via AP) Phase two of clinical trials for an antibody treatment at Eli Lilly is reducing the rate at which patients are being hospitalized with coronavirus.Eli Lilly says the antibody is designed to block viral attachment and entry into human cells, which would neutralize the virus, potentially preventing and treating COVID-19.“The data we just got from this ongoing clinical trial shows us that the medicine can have an effect in lowering the amount of virus that’s detected in the patients,” says Daniel Skovronsky, Chief Medical Officer for Eli Lilly. “The effect is correlated with lower symptoms and a lower rate of hospitalization.”Skovronsky says this antibody treatment is most effective as early in the disease course as possible.“These are people who, just within a few days of having symptoms, got diagnosed, and then later given this treatment,” says Skovronsky.Lilly executives say the antibody is called LY-CoV555. The trial enrolled mild-to-moderate recently diagnosed COVID-19 patients across four groups receiving different doses (placebo, 700 mg, 2800 mg and 7000 mg).The data showed 1.7 percent (5/302) of LY-CoV555 patients, pooled across all three dosage groups, were hospitalized as compared to 6 percent (9/150) of placebo patients, which corresponds to a 72 percent risk reduction in the limited population.Skovronsky says most of the hospitalizations occurred in patients with underlying risk factors, suggesting a more pronounced treatment effect for patients in these higher-risk groups.The clinical trial will continue testing LY-CoV555 in combination with a second Lilly antibody, LY-CoV016.“We’re making as much (of the antibody) as we can as fast as we can. We’d like to have 100,000 doses available by the end of the year and many more next year. Over time, we’ll look to reproduce these findings in larger sample sizes. That’s the normal drug process that goes to ultimate Food and Drug Administration (FDA) submission and approval,” says Skovronsky.

But the numbers may not be as good as they appear.Indiana’s workforce shrank by 20,000 in September, and is down 60,000 since February.I-U Kelley School of Business economist Kyle Anderson says a disproportionate number of those missing workers are women. He suggests a lot of them are working moms staying home because of school closures or other family obligations.Indiana’s unemployment rate in September was 6.2%, nearly two full points below the national rate of 7.9%. Anderson says the “real” number is more like nine-percent.The national jobless rate fell another point in October. Indiana’s October numbers come out next week.

first_imgPlease find all DFID’s footage and photos here for your use.A UK team of health and emergency response workers is flying to the region hit by Cyclone Idai today (24 March) to help assess health needs following the disaster.The team of five will work with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Ministry of Health in Mozambique, to help with the next stages of the health response following the cyclone, which has affected millions of people across Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.UK aid is funding the specialist team, as part of a wider UK government response to help those affected by the disaster.The team is led by Jon Barden, who works for the Department For International Development’s (DFID’s) Humanitarian and Stabilisation Operations Team and includes David Wightwick and Rachel Fletcher of charity UK-Med, Peter Skelton of NGO Humanity and Inclusion and Dave Phillips of UK-International Search and Rescue. The team is due to fly to Mozambique from Heathrow.The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies has warned of a cholera outbreak in the region hit by the cyclone.Mr Barden said: General media queries (24 hours) Telephone 020 7023 0600 If you have an urgent media query, please email the DFID Media Team on [email protected] in the first instance and we will respond as soon as possible.

Survivors may be suffering from illnesses such as dehydration and diarrhoeal diseases, as well as injuries from the cyclone. Many of them will have had no fresh water and lack shelter and lack of access to food. We will be assessing what health support the UK can offer the Ministry of Health, WHO and other partners in the critical first weeks of this disaster. The UK was one of the first countries to respond to Cyclone Idai and is currently the biggest international donor. It has so far pledged to give £22 million to help deal with the disaster’s aftermath. This includes matching pound-for-pound £4 million of public donations to the Disaster Emergency Committee’s appeal.Separately, another UK aid flight is due to leave from Doncaster Airport later today. It will contain forklift trucks and other equipment to help quickly unload aid from planes and cut the time it takes to get relief items to those in need.A RAF flight, containing UK aid is also due to leave for Mozambique later today.These flights are in addition to a plane of UK aid containing over 7,500 shelter kits and 100 family tents which arrived in Mozambique last Wednesday.DFID has also sent humanitarian experts from the UK to help on the ground.

A shimmering New Year

first_imgWell, as we zoom rapidly away from 2014 and into 2015, I really have a sense of new beginnings. Last year we were moving from back from Australia, and I guess that seemed more like an ending, but this New Year means a new house for me (which allows me to have a cake studio! OH JOY!), and I have set a business plan laid out for my cake business and the classes I hope to run. It’s important to keep ahead of the game as far as trends for weddings and what other cake makers want to learn for their own businesses.A great place to look into future trends and styles of cakes is obviously the exhibitions. I don’t think I could write this blog at the end of November without mentioning the amazing weekend I had at Cake International at the start of the month! I was thrilled to be there once again as a finalist in the National Cupcake Championships and it was a great excuse to get inspired by the amazing competition entries for the larger cake as well. It’s four years since I last went to this expo, and I was interested to see much less buttercream around the stands. The cupcake seems to be excelling still, but the fondant covered cupcake seems to be the way forward. Promotions were on show of foam and polystyrene domes which mean you can dry a perfect dome and decorate before making the cupcake which I found a great idea, and time saver if you are going to be making 200+ cupcakes for a wedding / event.Ganached cakes with sharp edges are rapidly coming into fashion in UK cakes, following suit from Australia, and the designs on these cakes are also including the shimmers and metallics which have been popular Down Under for the last few years. I am excited to see this as, presently, I can’t get enough of making shimmered cakes!!For me, my new 2015 beginnings mean stretching myself to learn a new technique. Christmas came early for me at Cake International and brought me air brush! I am seeing so many novelty cakes now being made using airbrushing to add such realistic colour to models and designs, I really couldn’t resist giving it a go! I just have to get through all the house unpacking before I can get the time to practice!Wishing you and your business great success in 2015!last_img read more
