The spray works by killing the virus in the upper airways, which then prevents further spread to the lungs and incubation. The treatment uses nitric oxide (NO), which is a natural nanomolecule that can be produced by the human body. NO is a well-established anti-microbial that has demonstrated a clear impact on SARS-CoV-2. Additionally, the pharmacology, toxicity, and safety data for NO use in humans has been known for decades, which has allowed it to be a safe treatment method for use in newborn babies as well as adults. Specifically, the NO molecule used in the novel spray is identical to the molecule that has been used to treat persistent pulmonary hypertension in newborn babies. Following the release of the phase 2 clinical data from the UK, the earlier phase 2 Canadian trials, and independent lab tests conducted at the Antiviral Research Institute at Utah State University, SaNOtize is applying for emergency use authorization to regulatory authorities in the UK and Canada currently.
The InvisiMask nasal spray is an investigational daily human antibody nasal spray designed to neutralize SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, from airborne droplets and particles in the nasal cavity, the primary entry point of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
At the lowest dose of 25μg, the antibodies provided at least 10 hours of protection against infection in mice exposed to the highest viral load tested (107 virus particles administered intra-nasally).
China’s leading vaccine producer CanSino Biologics obtained the national drug regulator’s approval on Monday to start clinical trials of its latest recombinant COVID-19 vaccine (Adenovirus Type 5 Vector) in inhalation form.
The Global Times learned that the vaccine, which was developed in cooperation with the Institute of Military Medicine under the Academy of Military Sciences, is no different in terms of virus species, cell banks, production technology or preparation formula from the company’s single-dose Ad5-nCoV COVID-19 vaccine, which is already in use – it just has an additional atomization inhalation device.
The inhaled vaccine can stimulate an immune response in the mucous membranes of a person’s respiratory tract. This version is less painful and more accessible, especially for children andvulnerable people, experts said. Source: Clinical trials approved for CanSino’s inhaled COVID-19 vaccine – Global Times
The U.S. is reporting 58,618 daily new Covid cases on average, up 6.7% over the past week, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. “It’s not good public policy what the governors of Arizona, Florida, and Texas are doing,” Gupta said. “It just doesn’t make sense from a scientific standpoint.” Gupta said that the U.S. was in a “race against time” to get as many people vaccinated as possible.
Regiones enteras están quedando devastadas por el dramático cambio del clima. Rayando lo extremo, ya hay zonas en el sudeste asiático y en África, dónde millones de personas se han visto obligadas a desplazarse de esos territorios ya sea por la sequía, o por las precipitaciones de las corrientes.
(Entire regions are being devastated by dramatic climate change. Bordering on the extreme, there are already areas in Southeast Asia and Africa, where millions of people have been forced to move from these territories either by drought or by rainfall from the currents.)
Myanmar’s military junta broadcast a threat Friday that anti-regime protesters would be “shot in the head,” as security forces killed six demonstrators in a southern coastal city, pushing the death toll since the Feb. 1 to more than 320, witnesses told RFA.
The junta’s warning, broadcast on state-run MRTV News prior to its 8 p.m. news program, said the protesters should learn that they “can be in danger of getting shot in the head and back,” and urged the people not to fall into a “colonialist propaganda trap.”
The warning came just hours before Saturday, Armed Forces Day, on which the junta is planning a show of force, including a military parade, and activists are calling for more protests across the nation of 54 million people.
Earlier in the day, police opened fire on a crowd of protesters in the southern coastal city of Myeik, killing six.
Among the dead were 19-year-old Min Myat Paing, an unidentified 32-year-old Muslim woman and mother of three, and four others who have yet to be identified.
Min Myat Paing was shot in the head and died immediately according to his brother’s Facebook page.
