Second--why would Trump have to approve the drug for Carson????

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson revealed Friday that he was "extremely sick" from COVID-19. Carson is among several who tested positive for the virus after attending an election night event at the White House.

In a Facebook post Friday, 69-year-old Carson said he initially saw "dramatic improvement" from a product he took, which is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration nor a proven coronavirus treatment.


"However, I have several co-morbidities and after a brief period when I only experienced minor discomfort, the symptoms accelerated and I became desperately ill," wrote Carson, who tested positive for the coronavirus last Monday.


Carson, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, said Mr. Trump cleared him to then receive a monoclonal antibody therapy that was also given to the president when he battled COVID-19 in October
. Carson said he believed the treatment saved his life, adding he is "blessed" to have access to what he called the best medical care in the world.

When the president was ill, he received Regeneron's experimental antibody treatment, which is only approved by the FDA on an individual basis during ongoing clinical trials.
Regeneron did not immediately confirm to CBS News that Carson received its treatment. .........................

4. This certainly sounds like tRump the final say in this treatment rather than the doctors.

If Carson had to get tRump's permission to receive the drug that means he determines life or death for Americans.

If this is true tRump is no longer a president and we are no longer a Democracy. Sounds like he's rekindled his love affair with Kim Jong-Un and is now patterning his decries after the N Korean dictator.
Since when do people who are not physicians determine the course of treatment like this?

5. For some reason I smell bullshit all around this much as I did when tRump suddenly went

to Walter Reed and was miraculously cured quite quickly. Now, we have this shit given to Carson. I don't trust a F'en thing anyone in this administration says, full of liars and delusional people!

8. Only those in the clinical trials and certain special cases can get this drug right now

It's a big deal because it will probably lower morbidity and mortality significantly.

11. Nice that the president* holds the power of life and death over people like this ...

I mean, that's always true to a certain extent, esp. for military, but this?

If true that is absolutely ridiculous and deplorable.

I suppose if Nancy came down with the COVID he wouldn't 'clear' her to get this treatment?

Safe bet I'd say.

17. It's very possible for someone to use an unproven treatment like Regeneron and still

show improvement. This is due to The Placebo Effect* which has been much studied and
been proven to be a "thing".

* "In medicine, a placebo is a substance, pill, or other treatment that appears to be a medical intervention, but isn’t one. Placebos are particularly important in clinical trials, during which they’re often given to participants in the control group.

snip

You may be familiar with the term “placebo” in reference to something called the placebo effect. The placebo effect is when an improvement is observed, despite an individual receiving a placebo as opposed to active medical treatment.

It’s estimated that 1 in 3 people experience the placebo effect. Keep reading to learn more about the placebo effect, how it may work, and some examples from research."
