Is Pence taking Regeneron antibody cocktail? His aide won't answer question.


A Pence aide did not respond to a question about whether the VP has been treated with the Regeneron antibody cocktail as a preventative measure.

1. Fetal stem cell research

Itís fine for them when they need it, but when others need it itís murder.

3. Is there any evidence antibody cocktail works as a preventative measure?

I guess I could see how it could work in theory.
Of course most regular people can't even get the antibodies if they are sick.

5. A Regeneron VP says yes.

"In March, Christos Kyratsous, vice president for infectious disease research and viral vector technologies at Regeneron, told Vox that this treatment could also be used prophylactically to prevent infection, in addition to being used as a treatment for an ongoing infection."

They've sure got a lot of VIGPs (Very Important Guinea Pigs) from the Oval.

6. I don't think Regeneron VP has evidence.

Seems more of a wishful thinking at the moment. That said, plenty of exposed people would presumably be willing to try it. But I doubt insurance would even approve it for a regular person. It's a pretty steep price to pay not even knowing if someone is actually infected.

8. Suspect he was sick at the vice president debate

And that's why hes testing negative now. He had the pinkeye, looked slumped and uncomfortable when he was sitting down.

Maybe he was the one who gave it to his aides.
