I’m with Mh on this I’m afraid. The language doesn’t sound right for us. Should be easy to check if further registration of the Aerogen is necessary for Covid though. Can’t remember them ever saying it was part of the approval process before
What about Dr Aurelien Mary and his outfit ? They are certainly using a nebuliser.
My joke about the legions of stupid vax resisters was entirely in better taste than your unpleasant little skit. The legions of the damned should be parodied and ridiculed on every forum on the planet. Your metaphor on the other hand was a nasty little piece of condescension and not even vaguely meant light heartedly. Revisionism is tricky when the words are still there.
Let me help this convo though by chucking you in the bin - hopefully that will stop a pointless and unnecessary thread as you'll be talking to yourself.
That's very poor Ndn71. You don't know Woody's history on this board or anything about him as a person beyond the narrow little insight you think you've gained in a couple of months, and you certainly don't have the right to attack him or condescend like this.
If you don't want to see what he contributes just filter it out.
SAB Interesting news. Further research grant and nothing more might mean it's not through but they believe it's interesting enough to support. It's the first polyclonal isn't it .
Bamlanivimab was the first authoried and first revoked - but now authorised in conjunction with etesevimab and alongside Regn-Cov the second most used Mab in the US.
Brii 196+8 ****tail is finished trialing but still awaiting approval isn't it ?
We've known for a long while there were 3 still waiting for advancement from P2. Decision time must be very close for all of them.
Here's the thing. The US prioritised healthcare workers for the vaccination way back in December 2020. While we were looking at the most vulnerable the US was protecting the frontline. And it was to protect them - not the people they work with. They've had plenty of time to walk down the corridor and get it done. Should they be vaccinated if they're with vulnerable people in care homes ? You bet. Tens and perhaps 100s of thousand have already ready died because the care sector didn't take adequate precautions
You can't have it both ways. If ICUs are still overwhelmingly full of unvaccinated patients and you're desperately trying to convince millions more to be vaccinated, what message does it send if you then say the new mandates don't apply to frontline healthcare workers. The only exception might be that prior exposure should be accepted as being as good as vaccination. It's immaterial if Delta still spreads in the vaccinated communities - the ICUs would be empty if the refuseniks could be persuaded to be vaccinated or stay home.
Everyone can make their own decision - but they don't get to work with the vulnerable. "Nursing home aides — the staff members who provide the most direct care to residents — were the least likely to be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus by mid-July, according to a new analysis of U.S. facilities. "
US running out of Mabs and sending another $2 billion to Eli and Regeneron for fresh supplies. 70% so far gobbled up by 7 of the least vaccinated southern states. FDA changing guidance to specifically target immuno-suppressed and unvaccinated. Regn-Cov and the bamlanivimab and etesevimab ****tail flying off the shelves now when 2 months ago they couldnn't give them away (which is what they ARE doing as they're free) Big ethical debate ongoing, and anti lockdown/social distancing/masks/vax Governors fighting each other like rats in a sack for extra doses. Quite why they continue efforts to save the unvaxed is beyond me - particualrly when it'll mean older patients going without - but we can at least take solace in the thought of all those -"I aint takin' no monkey juice " Harley boys -riding their fat guts around, sloshed full of hamster ovaries.
Relevance for SNG ? Still plenty of Delta around and bottomless coffers to get after it in any way possible. We'll get into the fight in the early new year
Given previous hapless techno preformances v unlikely they'd manage an intercontinental hook up. Just hope poor old RM is not reading it all off his laptop.
Seriouly though - will it answer the money questions ? Can we expect to discover how much of the £80m is left. ?
Mattw and TL it looks increasingly like they want to do it all - or at least do Covid, Which RM has always said was the aim. Perhaps JV(s) for the volume if it looks like it's too much for the existing production lines to handle, but they're not in any rush to lose control. If P3 comes in though and is accompanied by EUA and orders, the pressure to sell will still be huge.
My feeling is that they want to stay in control until the recognition for them all personally and the company has been established beyond doubt and they all have the credit the last 15 years deserves. If Pfizer - let's say - had acquired Synairgen after the peer review of P2 a year ago - the names Synairgen and SNG001 and all the scientists behind the discovery would already have been consigned to history. Known in the rarified world they inhabit but not credited in the way - for example - Biontech's German/Turkish mRNA pioneers have been credited globally.
Thanks BG and Helen. That excellent Guardian article also said " The company has gone from fewer than 20 employees before Covid to about 100, including freelancers." Everything pointing to the next phase - which is post-authorisation rollout.
Nothing in that for us. He's not referencing SNG - however obliquely. It's cool though. The health authority he runs has given SNG one of the very few places awarded since the pandemic began on its principal trialing programme. Just 7 trialist on Activ-2 in the past year and SNG001 and SAB are the only ones not supported by major pharmas or a nation (Brii)
I've expressed my admiration for Fauci many times in the past. If we pass Activ-2 and there's a good enough margin to justify an EUA - it will be forthcoming. Likewise if Sprinter comes in - Fauci will move quickly to authorise SNG in US hospitals.
Goodnight from me too. Woody will defend himself or not. I'm not one of the people who liked the original comment and i was the first to confront Woody on this a long time ago when it became clear that several of the female board members were offended. He's forgotten that this is not acceptable here or anywhere but he'll remember again now . If you think he's beyond the pale because of this report the comment or put him in the bin.
He's wrong about March 22 though. We'll know about Activ-2 progression within the next 3-4 weeks at the outside. Probably this week or next. With all the prior knowledge and data for SNG all they have to do is assess efficacy. Even if P3 takes another 2 or 3 months - the key A-2 signal and consequent rise or fall in the sp will be with us very very soon.
