CytoDyn set to deliver its leronlimab treatment to critically ill coronavirus (COVID-19) patients in the Philippines
CytoDyn Inc (OTCQB:CYDY) announced it is delivering its drug leronlimab to a Philippine hospital to be administered to another 28 critically ill coronavirus (COVID-19) patients under a new Compassionate Special Permit (CSP). The company also said it is negotiating the potential future delivery of 100,000 vials to the Philippines for additional CSP use. Based upon the speedy recovery of the first COVID-19 CSP patient in the Philippines, we are coordinating very closely with Chiral and the regulators to ensure we are expediting as much leronlimab as needed, CytoDyn CEO Nader Pourhassan said in a statement. READ: CytoDyn has multiple shots on goal with its flagship drug Vyrologix to treat for HIV, various cancers and even coronavirus We remain hopeful that all of these coordinated efforts will continue to expand the availability of leronlimab to the Philippines, Pourhassan added. CytoDyn noted that its commercial partner in the Philippines, Chiral Pharma Corporation, is working closely with the Philippine FDA and the hospital. Leronlimab (PRO 140) is a C-C chemokine receptor type 5 (CCR5) antagonist with potential multiple therapeutic indications. CCR5 hampers the ability of a virus to infiltrate immune cells.   Aside from COVID-19, the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Fast Track designation to CytoDyn for two potential indications of leronlimab for critical illnesses. The first is a combination therapy with HAART for HIV-infected patients and the second is for metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. Contact Sean at sean@proactiveinvestors.com

CytoDyn strikes agreement with Chiral Pharma to supply up to 200K vials of leronlimab to critically ill coronavirus patients in the Philippines
CytoDyn Inc (OTCQB:CYDY) announced that it has executed an exclusive supply and distribution agreement with Chiral Pharma Corporation to supply up to 200,000 vials of leronlimab to critically ill coronavirus (COVID-19) patients in the Philippines. Chiral has been working diligently with the Philippine FDA to ensure the regulatory path is cleared so we can provide leronlimab to thousands of critically ill COVID-19 patients under CSP authorization, CytoDyn CEO Nader Pourhassan said in a statement. Upon quick recovery of the first Filipino patient critically ill with COVID-19 treated with leronlimab, Chiral is continuously receiving CSP requests and is hoping to accelerate the availability of leronlimab under CSP to thousands of critically ill COVID-19 patients.  READ: CytoDyn says its coronavirus long-haulers trial now fully enrolled faster than expected Pourhassan added: In parallel, we are using data generated from our CD12 open-label extension to pursue EUAs in multiple countries experiencing surges in critically ill COVID-19 patients. The Company will accelerate manufacturing of leronlimab at Samsung BioLogics upon such approval. After completing two clinical trials with COVID-19 patients (a Phase 2 and a Phase 3), CytoDyn has initiated a Phase 2 investigative trial for post-acute sequelae of SARS COV-2 (PASC), also known as COVID-19 Long-Haulers. This trial will evaluate the effects of leronlimab on clinical symptoms and laboratory biomarkers to further understand the pathophysiology of PASC. It is currently estimated that between 10-30% of those infected with COVID-19 develop long-term symptoms such as fatigue, cognitive impairment, sleep disorders, and shortness of breath. If this trial is successful, CytoDyn said it plans to pursue clinical trials to evaluate leronlimabs effect on immunological dysregulation in other post-viral syndromes, including myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted CytoDyn Fast Track designation to explore two potential indications using leronlimab to treat HIV and metastatic cancer. The first indication is combination therapy with HAART for HIV-infected patients, and the second is for metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (mTNBC).  Leronlimab blocks CCR5, a cellular receptor important in HIV infection, tumor metastases, and other diseases, including NASH (nonalcoholic steatohepatitis). The CCR5 receptor also appears to play a central role in modulating immune cell trafficking to sites of inflammation.  Contact the author: patrick@proactiveinvestors.com Follow him on Twitter @PatrickMGraham

Eli Lilly asks FDA to revoke EUA for COVID antibody treatment alone to speed transition to combination therapy
Eli Lilly and Co. said Friday it is seeking a revocation of the emergency use authorization granted by U.S. regulators for its bamlanivimab antibody treatment for COVID-19 alone in order to complete the transition to bamlanivimab and etesevimab together. 'Lilly made this request due to the evolving variant landscape in the U.S. and the full availability of bamlanivimab and etesevimab together,' the company said in a statement. The combination has proved to be more effective in neutralizing the COVID-19 variants that have been detected in the U.S. after first emerging in the U.K., South Africa and Brazil, and that are more infectious than the original virus. The combination is also better at treating the rapidly growing B.1.427/B.1.429 California strain that currently accounts for 50% of virus cases in California and over 10% of cases in other states. 'In the U.S., bamlanivimab alone should no longer be administered. However, sites of care should not dispose of bamlanivimab supply; instead, they should order etesevimab to pair with it,' said Lilly. Bamlanivimab was the first neutralizing monoclonal antibody to receive an EUA from the FDA as a treatment for mild to moderate COVID-19 and more than 400,000 patients have been given it. Lilly estimates that has prevented more than 20,000 hospitalizations and at least 10,000 deaths during the peak of pandemic cases. Lily expects that in collaboration with Amgen Inc. , it can manufacture sufficient supply of the two antibodies to meet global supply needs. Lilly shares were up 0.6% premarket, and have gained 10% in the year-to-date, matching the S&P 500's gains. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

What We Know About the Impact of Covid-19 on Children
Young children typically are superspreaders of respiratory germs, so its puzzling that they dont seem to be major transmitters of the coronavirus that causes Covid-19. Theyre also relatively absent among hospitalized patients. Initially, that was thought to be because theyre less likely to become seriously ill if infected. Later studies indicate that those of primary school age, at least, may be less likely to catch the virus in the first place. Still, theyre not immune to an array of ind
