    Possible good news about Remdesivir trials as a treatment. Obviously, if a treatment for severe cases can be identified, it will be a game changer. Remdesivir has shown a lot of promise.

    Single arm, non-controlled data. Might work, but something heard at the cafeteria over the weekend isnít definitive evidence.

    Agreed. However, Remdesivir is a drug that showed promise with MERS and has been discussed a lot in the past couple months as a potential treatment. It is not something out of left field, which, gives me some hope.

    I have an in-law who worked that U of C call. It has not worked on everyone. The article makes it sound like it works on a pretty high percentage. I don't know. But I was told when it works it works fast. So fast they are discharging people within a couple of days and aren't always able to get good monitoring data. Working on dosages.

    The existence of the Milken Institute proves that crime does pay and pay very well.

    We still haven't figured it out. Need randomized trials to know for sure. But I feel pretty comfortable in saying if there is a benefit, it's likely to be relatively small, not a game changer.

    John Ioannidis, Stanford U, has an interesting perspective on both the pandemic and medical research results in general. The paper on research results needs more digesting, as it is has a lot of research statistics and some modelling simulations
    .
    The U tube interview (study on the pandemic) is long. 1:12:00

    We discussed this on the non-political thread, but there are major sampling and analytic issues with the paper. The issues are covered here and, if you're able to get through a lot of highly technical statistical jargon, here.

    Ioannidis, as others have pointed out, is a shit stirrer in the research field and, like many shit stirrers, is a hypocrite when it comes to the specificity of his own research. One of the authors also published an op-ed without disclosing that he was an author of the study and Ioannidis and Bhattacharya have been prominent sources on conservative articles and op-eds that question stay-at-home orders and advocate for re-opening the economy.

    So, now it appears adding L'ville to the ACC was good thing after all.
