CHICAGO HOPE: New Drug Shows ‘Promise’ Against Coronavirus in Chicago Medical Trials

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.17.20

An experimental new drug called ‘Remdesivir’ is “showing promise” in clinical trials in Chicago against the deadly Coronavirus; sending stocks up as a possible breakthrough could be just months away.

“Some 125 people with COVID-19 — 113 with severe symptoms — were recruited by the University of Chicago Medicine into the two Gilead Phase 3 clinical trials, according to STAT. The news site obtained a recorded video discussion of the trial results,” reports Fox News.

“Partial data from an ongoing clinical trial is by definition incomplete and should never be used to draw conclusions about the safety or efficacy of a potential treatment that is under investigation,” said a spokeswoman for University of Chicago Medicine, in a statement emailed to Fox News. “In this case, information from an internal forum for research colleagues concerning work in progress was released without  authorization. Drawing any conclusions at this point is premature and scientifically unsound.”

“We understand the urgent need for a COVID-19 treatment and the resulting interest in data on our investigational antiviral drug remdesivir. The totality of the data need to be analyzed in order to draw any conclusions from the trial. Anecdotal reports, while encouraging, do not provide the statistical power necessary to determine the safety and efficacy profile of remdesivir as a treatment for COVID-19. We expect the data from our Phase 3 study in patients with severe COVID-19 infection to be available at the end of this month, and additional data from other studies to become available in May. We are grateful for all of the efforts of investigators and patients participating in our studies and look forward to sharing the results from the complete dataset,” adds Fox.

A NEW LOW: Forget Impeachment, Dem Lawmaker Wants Trump Charged with ‘Crimes Against Humanity’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.06.20

Ohio Democratic State Rep. Tavia Galonski took her party’s war against the White House to a new level this week; saying the President should be charged for “crimes against humanity” over his Coronavirus press briefings.

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow. Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one,” posted the legislator on social media.

 

“State Rep. Tavia Galonski tweeted Sunday after President Trump spoke about hydroxychloroquine at his daily press briefing. The drug, normally used to treat malaria, is one of several that the president has pointed to as showing promise in the fight against COVID-19, but its effectiveness has been a subject of debate,” reports Fox News.

A NEW LOW: MSNBC Analyst Claims Trump’s Coronavirus Response Constitutes ‘Involuntary Manslaughter’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.07.20

MSNBC Legal Analyst Glenn Kirschner left millions of users on social media scratching their heads this week; baselessly asserting President Trump’s Coronavirus response could be prosecuted for “involuntary manslaughter.”

“Trump’s conduct easily satisfies all 3 elements of involuntary manslaughter. In fact, his gross negligence is beginning to look more like conduct evincing a ‘conscious disregard of an extreme risk of death/serious bodily injury = the standard for depraved heart/2nd degree murder,’” he posted on Twitter.
