With ‘Cure’ Comment, Trump Exaggerates Known Benefits of Another Covid-19 Therapy

Experts think monoclonal antibodies, like the cocktail taken by Mr. Trump, could fare better than hydroxychloroquine and convalescent plasma.

The treatment is “super promising, and all of us are excited from a theoretical perspective,” Dr. Ranney said. “But it’s just too early,” she added, to tell if theory will translate into practice.

Monoclonal antibodies are synthetic, mass-produced mimics of the molecules the human body produces in response to an infection. Some antibodies are powerful enough to block the coronavirus from infiltrating cells. Administered to people battling the coronavirus, the monoclonal antibodies could help naturally produced immune molecules fend off the virus.

Just days before Mr. Trump tested positive for the coronavirus and was admitted to the hospital, Regeneron announced a batch of preliminary results, collected from ongoing trials, via news release. They suggested Regeneron’s monoclonal antibody cocktail could tamp down the amount of virus found in the nasal cavity, and hasten recovery in people who had contracted the virus but hadn’t been hospitalized.

On Wednesday evening, Regeneron announced it was seeking an emergency approval from the F.D.A. for its antibody cocktail.

The data so far for monoclonal antibodies looks “very promising,” said Dr. Phyllis Tien, an infectious disease physician at the University of California, San Francisco. But it’s crucial, she added, to let the trials run to completion to fully assess safety and efficacy. Unanticipated side effects could crop up, or the treatment might not perform as well in certain people as it does in others.

Mr. Trump’s allusions to making monoclonal antibodies “free” for widespread use are also probably off base. Monoclonal antibodies are expensive and difficult to produce in large quantities. Regeneron estimated that it would initially have enough doses for only 50,000 people, though the company plans to scale up production in coming months.

Business Insider Intelligence


Insurance companies that leverage advanced technology to automate the policy underwriting and risk assessment process will likely remain atop the list of their competitors. The process of streamlining insurance underwriting is known simply as: automated insurance underwriting.

We’ve broken down how this process works, while noting how some companies are already reaping the benefits. 

What is automated insurance underwriting?

Automated insurance underwriting is the process where robotic process automation (RPA) and artificial intelligence (AI) software underwrites the risk of potential clients. The advanced tech uses AI and machine learning (ML) to evaluate risk, decide how much coverage the client should receive, and how much they should pay for it.

This, in turn, allows providers to generate a profit from underwriting and enhance customer satisfaction through more personalized policies.

Automated vs manual insurance underwriting

T-Mobile for Business BrandVoice: Evolving Your Small Business: 5 Benefits Of 5G

5G isn’t just about a future with faster data speeds—it’s about faster business.

With the deployment of any new generation of wireless technology like 5G, the benefits will grow over time as networks expand availability and technology advances.

In order to stay ahead of the curve, businesses of all sizes—even small to medium-sized companies—need to understand the opportunities that 5G presents, especially as creative entrepreneurs begin developing innovative ways to use 5G for business and leverage its capabilities.

The very existence of 5G provides a huge opportunity for innovative ideas, new products, and services, and transformed business models. Here are just five of the ways that businesses can use 5G to improve how they do business and serve customers.

1. It can make your people more productive

5G not only has the potential to create whole new ways to work, but it may even make evolving your small business easier. With it, devices can gain powerful, low-latency connections to the cloud, so the devices themselves may not have to do as much computing. This would make it possible to use devices that are essentially a screen and a battery with a high-bandwidth connection to the cloud.

Your business could equip employees with low-power devices running powerful analytics to deliver premium services or use augmented reality to streamline warehouse management and operations.

With higher speeds and lower latency, spotty conference calls with flickering network connections will become a thing of the past. High-quality video calls, on the go, will be conducted easily. Impromptu conference calls and collaboration work can be done virtually anywhere. You and your employees can be more productive every minute of the workday.

2. It can make your sales channels more productive
