Quote:https://www.yahoo.com/news/israeli-covid...09164.htmlA new coronavirus drug which successfully cured 30 cases of the disease in Israeli hospital patients has been hailed by scientists as a ‘huge breakthrough’.
The EXO-CD24 substance was developed at the Ichilov Medical Centre in Tel Aviv and successfully completed its first phase of clinical trials on Friday.
The treatment was given to 30 patients with coronavirus, whose conditions ranged from moderate to severe.
Twenty-nine of the patients were then discharged from the hospital in the following three to five days, while one patient took slightly longer to recover.
A protein known as CD24 is delivered to the lungs by exosomes in the drug, which helps to rebalance the immune system and prevent it from overreacting to the virus.
