In the News, I applaud Israel for its iniative. See https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/headlines-breaking-stories/1851273/33-israelis-treated-with-antibodies-from-recovered-coronavirus-patients.htmlApril 21, 2020 2:39 pm at 2:39 pm #1851458HealthParticipant
RE – They just had 1000+ blood samples in Lakewood sent to Mayo clinic to do the same thing.
They have been doing this therapy since the late 1800’s. It’s not too efficient.

“Modern Medicine” … At some point in the near future (apart from the Moshiach scenario) we will look back at our current state of medical treatment and regard it as archaic and clumsily hapless, the same way as we look back now on bygone images of poor anaesthesia -less patients having dental work or their blood let.April 21, 2020 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #1851630
health, isn’t this like immune therapy for cancer?April 21, 2020 11:10 pm at 11:10 pm #1851661HealthParticipant
RE – “health, isn’t this like immune therapy for cancer?”
No, it’s not.
It’s a primitive form of therapy that was developed in the late 1800’s!
But since I’m not an Oncologist, I looked it up for you.
“Several types of immunotherapy are used to treat cancer. These include:
Immune checkpoint inhibitors, which are drugs that block immune checkpoints. These checkpoints are a normal part of the immune system and keep immune responses from being too strong. By blocking them, these drugs allow immune cells to respond more strongly to cancer.
T-cell transfer therapy, which is a treatment that boosts the natural ability of your T cells to fight cancer. In this treatment, immune cells are taken from your tumor. Those that are most active against your cancer are selected or changed in the lab to better attack your cancer cells, grown in large batches, and put back into your body through a needle in a vein.
T-cell transfer therapy may also be called adoptive cell therapy, adoptive immunotherapy, or immune cell therapy.
Monoclonal antibodies, which are immune system proteins created in the lab that are designed to bind to specific targets on cancer cells. Some monoclonal antibodies mark cancer cells so that they will be better seen and destroyed by the immune system. Such monoclonal antibodies are a type of immunotherapy.
Monoclonal antibodies may also be called therapeutic antibodies.
Treatment vaccines, which work against cancer by boosting your immune system’s response to cancer cells. Treatment vaccines are different from the ones that help prevent disease.
Immune system modulators, which enhance the body’s immune response against cancer. Some of these agents affect specific parts of the immune system, whereas others affect the immune system in a more general way.”April 22, 2020 10:37 am at 10:37 am #18518002scentsParticipant
A number of hospitals in the tristate area are doing similar trials.
One of the issues these trials have is that they mostly include people that are in the hospital and at later stages of the disease, these people have a number of other issues as a result of the virus.April 23, 2020 9:02 am at 9:02 am #1852235
