20200515: Big Announcement Coming Today on Covid Treatments. The THOR Antibody.

Are you tired of all the drama from media pundits about CoVid? The politicization of science? Well, get ready for the announcement from Sorrento Therapeutics later today. This is big. Take a look. Here’s the link to the article: Link

Later Friday, Sorrento Therapeutics will announce their discovery of the STI-1499 antibody, which the San Diego company said can provide “100% inhibition” of COVID-19, adding that a treatment could be available months before a vaccine hits the market.

“We want to emphasize there is a cure. There is a solution that works 100 percent,” Dr. Henry Ji, founder and CEO of Sorrento Therapeutics, told Fox News. “If we have the neutralizing antibody in your body, you don’t need the social distancing. You can open up a society without fear.”

Wait, wha……..? A treatment which is 100% effective?

Look, I’m the accountant and muffin maker in the group. I can make numbers sing and dance. When it comes to virology/biology……… not so much. That’s why I was initially reluctant to be the one to begin the deep dive on the subject of CoVid. But along the way, we ALL trained up together. Admit it, within our “Trees”, we’ve spent thousands of hours on the deep dive behind the “virus from China”. We’ve read every peer-reviewed study from Lancet and Nature, scoured the NEJournal, and searched the world for information. We devoured it all. When we got stuck, actual scientists like Gail Combs and others helped us understand. We’re not specialists, but we’re pretty darn good….. and we’re miles and months ahead of the MSM on the subject of CCP Virus.

The principle behind the discovery is simple. It’s about antibodies, making the body use our own natural defenses. Makes sense, right? Remember the “spike protein” within CoVid? We talked endlessly about the Spike Protein and how it infects the ACE2 receptors of a cell. The Spike Protein is how the virus gets into a cell, infects the cell, destroys the cell, and the virus replicates and moves on. Even the meme makers use the Spike Protein for added effect.

Our natural immune system sends T Cells, our natural defenders, to destroy “that which should not be here”, within our bodies. With CoVid, our T Cells fight so hard against the virus, they create a cytokine storm, which is why lungs get clogged, creating a pneumonia, subsequent thousands of deaths, because people are drowning in their own fluid. Because the blood was starved of oxygen, many patients developed hypoxia, or symptoms similar to altitude sickness. Thus, we built ventilators to force MORE oxygen into the blood. Yet, the virus raged and grew within the body.

Meds like Hydroxychloroquine were touted because they “calmed the cytokine storm” and allowed our TCells to work. Docs reported those who recover from CoVid have TCells which are “exhausted”, and they are concerned it may cause a compromised immunity further down the road.

But what if we had an antibody which blocked the Spike Protein from entry to a cell from the very beginning?

Normally, the only way to develop an antibody is to catch a disease…… and then, we have antibodies. Our bodies really are perfectly designed “machines”. We’re then immune to a virus…… unless….. the virus mutates so much, over time, it comes back again and our antibodies don’t recognize it……… which is why we continue to catch the common cold…….. it’s because of the mutations. In the 1917-1918 outbreak of Spanish flu, we took plasma from those who recovered, and transfused those who were ill. We “harvested” the antibodies from one person, and gave the antibodies to another. It worked.

Today, the blood plasma transfusion process has been hailed a success by Dr. Fauci and others. Of course it has, the idea has been proven effective for over a hundred years. Yet, to do “blood plasma transfusion” on a mass scale, for 330 million people, would be a monumental task and incredibly expensive.

But we’re Americans, and we tend to be the innovative ones. Enter….. Sorrento Therapeutics, who had an idea.

Sorrento Therapeutics has a little “library” in San Diego which contains billions of antibodies from people all over the world, who have suffered various diseases. They started looking through the billions of antibodies for ONE antibody which blocked the Spike Protein. Surprised, they found dozens of antibodies which worked. Yet, they found ONE antibody which worked 100% of the time.

It’s called STI-1499.

I’m thinking we might need a better name – like the “Thor Antibody”, which smashes the CCP virus with it’s mighty hammer. What do you guys think?

The proposed “cocktail” therapeutic from Sorrento contains several of the most effective antibodies (more superhero antibodies – I could sell this idea), to protect us all against possible future mutations of CoVid. It’s ready for FDA approval.

And…. wait for it….

Dr. Ji pointed out that the antibody can be used as preventative therapy since there are no side effects, and that it can be more effective than any vaccine that may be developed. “This is the best solution,” he said. “The point of making a vaccine is to generalize a neutralizing antibody. So, if you already have one, you don’t need to the body to generate one from a vaccine. You’ve already provided it. You’re cutting out the middleman.”

NO VACCINE NEEDED.

Did you hear the wind just go out of Bill Gates vaccine balloon? Sad face Fauci?

“As soon as it is infused, that patient is now immune to the disease,” Dr. Brunswick said to Fox News. “For the length of time, the antibody is in that system. So, if we were approved [by the FDA] today, everyone who gets that antibody can go back to work and have no fear of catching COVID-19.” 

Problem solved.

Yet, the powers that be are all-in on spending BILLIONS for a vaccine. Today, the President is in the Rose Garden, announcing “Operation Warp Speed”, to develop the distribution channels for a vaccine. Lindsey Graham wants Bill Gates to be the new Director of WHO. Big Pharma is happy.  Politicians and their lobbyists are happy. The money is flowing from the US taxpayer.

Yet, if the Sorrento therapeutics work, the Superhero antibodies would win, and peace would reign over the land.

  1. Vaccination works on the principle that giving people a micro-dose or weakened virus will allow the body to develop a natural immunity by producing antibodies.

    This process has been proven to work well, but it is not without risks.

    However, what if we cut out the step of vaccinating with a live virus and getting the immune system to fight it off?

    What if we instead treated with infused antibodies?

    The benefit is that it is much safer overall.

    More people could take antibodies – someone who is already ill can benefit without risking a further weakening of their immune system.

    Like Chemo patients – people who somehow mysteriously contracted a cancer that need antibodies . . .

    Then we wouldn’t need MILLIONS of doses of vaccines.

    We wouldn’t need a large single-payer to buy them all – the Government.

    We wouldn’t need vaccine mandates.

    Antibodies could be prescribed and administered as needed for actual treatment of cases or as a prophylactic . . .

    . . . rather than how vaccinations are done in a global(ist?) one-size fits all approach.

    The cost savings would be ENORMOU$.

    EVERYONE would stand to benefit.

    Except, potentially, those invested in the academic-pharmaceutical-government complex. (aka, Scientific-Technical Elite, STE)

    Except those trying to line their pockets.

    Except those trying to use public health as a mechanism to procure political power.

  2. What if we could use this same approach for treating other viruses and diseases?

    What if we could find an antibody treatment that would give a 100% cure for AIDS?

    What if we could cure someone of AIDS?

    What if we could end the AIDS epidemic in ten years?

    What if we could redirect all the AIDS research money into other research that advances medicine?

    What if ending AIDS meant that PEPFAR and it’s $6 Billion annual were no longer necessary?

    What if someone has already been doing the research on AIDS antibody treatment?

    What if that antibody treatment has already been published?

    What if there was already a significant body of work around AIDS antibody treatment, its safety, and its efficacy?

    What if the peer reviewed academic committees were not publishing all the research work being done on the AIDS front?

    What if we already had an effective cure but no one knew about it because it had been papered over by academic peer review boards?

    What if we discovered a lot of our ostensibly independent research scientists were receiving dark money from undisclosed dark money sources?

    What if the DOJ was looking into the “matter”?

    1. Have you heard of IVIG – intravenous immunoglobulin? I’ve had many of these infusions for an autoimmune condition. They work.

      Explanation from the web…

      Immunoglobulin is part of your blood’s plasma. It has antibodies in it to fight germs or disease. When people donate blood, this part can be separated out. Then it can be given to you through a vein in your arm, or IV. If you get IVIg, it can help strengthen your immune system so you can fight infections and stay healthy.

  3. I’m getting word……….. take a look at this.

    This Company (Sorrento) has already reached an agreement with China, on February 24, for the distribution of this treatment.

    1. Since this technically was produced in China, by a Chinese lab (Mabpharm) could that have any bearing on the trade war?

      1. This Company (Sorrento) has already reached an agreement with China, on February 24, for the distribution of this treatment.
        It was created in China

        1. Got a link?

          OMG – China releases the virus – then after the whole world is infected – China has the patent and sells the cure?!?!!!!!!!!!

    Apropos of nothing in particular, and being brought here particularly for our Wolf regarding capacity issues….here’s an ars technica article on provisioning a WordPress host site — https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2020/05/apache-101-0-wordpress-in-15-minutes/

    One of the common metaphors used in business is to “look at something from the 30,000 foot level.” Being that business travellers are near that altitude when they go to important meetings in other cities, they have a visceral understanding of what that means. One of the absolute best parts of using Linux is its ability to let you see things from the “outer space level” [you’re on a brown bit, rather than the blue bit next to it] to the “electron microscope level” [the sand grain’s inclusions contain trapezohedron garnet]. For those unused to this, articles can sometimes cause a mental “motion sickness” by changing levels of focus rapidly in large amounts. Please use appropriate precautions while reading this article.

    A discussion between cthulhu and michaelh follows.

    (You might want to contact michaelh for help if you need it.)

    1. The specific issue that I was addressing — although couched in technical terms — is actually not technical.

      If you have a wordpress blog on wordpress, you buy a basket. In that basket is a bunch of technical stuff — a certain amount of post storage, a certain amount of image storage, a certain amount of comment storage….a certain number of simultaneous connections, a certain amount of bandwidth, a certain amount of total connections…..and so on. Maybe 20 things. If you started with a minimum package, and they tell you to upgrade because you are nearing your limits, you’re probably nearing several of your basket’s limits and should just bump up.

      After that first bump, it is worth examining which of the 20 technical issues are your problems. If you go to a la carte pricing — abandoning the basket — you don’t have to get bigger baskets. But you also don’t get everything all bumped-up at once and have to monitor things at a deeper level of detail. It’s like if you get those mail-order Hickory Farms gift baskets for a friend and he comments that his family of eight went through everything in a week. Next year, you might buy a bigger basket. But if he says, “yeah, they snarfed all the cheeses, and the mustards were popular, but we were still passing out the summer sausage months later”, then you might want to just get more cheeses.

      Wolf is concerned about limits on image space. He has the option of going a la carte for all of his needs and abandoning the wordpress basket approach, and I was showing him that this may not be a terrible idea and could possibly happen in one (busy) day. Furthermore, the link showed a map of how to organize the project. OTOH, if he wanted to continue buying bigger baskets from wordpress, that’s still there as an option.

      I suspect that Daughn does not yet have enough usage data to want to drill down to that level of granularity. It’d be like, “I bought this basket and put it in my lobby, and five guests, three coworkers, and a hobo have drifted through and taken something from it.” What does that tell you about her intended endgame? Specifically, what does this tell you about the ratio between cheeses and mustards? It’s not that it tells you nothing — the guests may have used the mustards and the staff may have nabbed the cheeses, while the hobo took a little of everything — but it’s a tiny sample with ambiguous data.

      Hosting on wordpress is a quicker (though not quick) and easier (though not easy) way to get up and rolling, but may not be optimal for the longer term…..but being up and running has its merits. And michaelh had a great point — all these “starter kit” intro articles very quickly lead a lot of people into deep water. Wolf isn’t exactly a virgin on this subject, and he’s avoiding plugins from non-wordpress sources like the plague. Being that every week seems to bring another report of a corrupted plugin, this strikes me as very wise.

  5. Sorrento subsidiary TNK Therapeutics seems to be connected to, under contract with (or owned by) China.

    Daughn said she saw that connection.

      1. She just stopped posting – hasn’t posted anything here in a couple of days.

        Dreamed about her and prayed for her last night.

        Hope no one in her family is ill or hurt.

        1. Oh, dear. I’ve been wrapped-up in my own situation (e.g. Fiancee is buying car.) and have let things slide. Hoping all is well!!!!

      2. No problem, I really try to take the weekends off from social media. Plus, we have guests.
        Have a crazy lady staying with us who backed into the brick column on the porte cochere. She smashed the heck out of her car.
        She’s nice, lovely even, but I wonder how she feeds herself.

  6. And rest assured word unimpressed hates each and everyone of us.
    Some here can beat it at its own game but mere mortals will have to wait for the declaration that they are public utilities (or whatever)
    Thill the second Declaration of Independence…esp the first amendment.
    The second is now assured by the demon craps own actions. By making it so hard to get gun licences then releasing career criminals back onto the streets the us now has the highest gun ownership ever

  7. As recent as the year 2000 we won elections by saying we shouldn’t be the policemen of the world, and that we should not be nation building. And its time we got those values back into this country. — Ron Paul
