Regeneron CEO: Trump's success with antibody cocktail is not evidence of cure

Dr. Leonard Schleifer, the founder and CEO of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, said on Sunday that President Trump's successful treatment with the company's antibody cocktail is "the weakest evidence you can get" on whether the drug produces immunity or is a cure.

Driving the news: Since leaving Walter Reed Medical Center on Monday, Trump has repeatedly claimed that he is "immune" from COVID-19 and said he views the antibody cocktail as a "cure."


What they're saying: “The president’s case is a case of one, and that’s what we call a case report. And it is evidence, but it’s kind of the weakest evidence that you can get," Schleifer told CBS News' "Face the Nation."

  • “[T]he real evidence about how good a drug is and what it will do on average has to come from these larger clinical trials, these larger randomized trials, which are the gold standard, and those are ongoing," he said.
  • The president’s case is “just low down on the evidence scale that we really need," and while the drug does create immunity, "it's probably going to last you months," Schleifer added.

The bottom line: “Regeneron can’t do this alone. We need the entire industry. And I am so proud, the industry has risen,” Schleifer said.

What to watch: Regeneron and Eli Lilly, which is developing a similar therapy, have applied for an emergency use authorization from the FDA.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
