5. Tik Tok ? Oh Oh

If any drug has any credibility, the very first place is not going to be Tik Tok.
There are only two places on Earth to look for new medical information.

One is here in the US:
THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE
https://www.nejm.org/

One is in England:THE LANCET
https://www.thelancet.com/

I've searched these two websites for
EXO-CD24 and nothing anywhere on either. I'll wait until it actually exists amongst science's best & brightest.
Almost every drug, procedure or treatment will get extensive reporting, clinical submission on these two resources.

Otherwise think of this TilTokery as just another highly suspect claim:
Trump's Bleach Injections, now with improved laser beams ( this was Tel Aviv, too) instead of UV lamps! We announce in a local newspaper, not publish any scientific papers on the studies of the drugs trials. Come on people, think how drugs are invented!

3. Interesting.

The patients were given Prof. Nadir Arber’s EXO-CD24 COVID-19 treatment, which is based on CD24-enriched exosomes and is meant to fight the cytokine storm that is associated with many of the world’s COVID-19 deaths. [snip]

The treatment is inhaled once a day for a few minutes at a time for five days. It directly targets the lungs, the site of the storm, as opposed to other treatments that could be given systemically and hence cause severe side effects, Arber explained.


Makes sense. This is good news - here's hoping trials continue successfully and this becomes available soon as another tool for fighting the virus.

4. The EXO-CD24 drug is

additionally relatively easy to manufacture and inexpensive. It sounds like many countries would therefore be able to affordably make the stuff themselves which would greatly speed up availability.

Anyhow, all this is potentially very good news in view of the Covid variants that threaten to set us back in the not-so-distant future.
