Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. suspended testing of its Covid-19 antibody drug in the sickest hospitalized patients because of a safety concern, the latest setback for antibody-drug trials in patients with the most advanced disease.
(MENAFN - The Peninsula) IANS London - Researchers have reported that some patients recovered from Covid-19 could still carry the virus, suggesting that recovered patients should be more cautious and avoid close contact with others.
For the study, researchers had founded an worldwide registry that dealt only with COVID-19 related skin manifestations back in April 2020.
The saga of COVID-19 antibody R&D continues as the REGN-COV2 antibody cocktail used by President Donald Trump and touted as a cure has been hit by safety worries as it continues to push for an FDA emergency authorization.
Around 1,000 cases of patients with the skin manifestations of coronavirus in 39 nations were recorded.
Earlier research estimates that around one in 12 people with the coronavirus grows some kind of skin complaint and experts have continuously called for the health chiefs for recognizing it as an official symptom.

"We must wait for the results of the ongoing large and properly designed studies to determine whether vitamin D can prevent SARS-COV-2 infection, or reduce its severity", Hernandez said.
According to the study, 80% of 216 COVID-19 patients at the Hospital Universitario Marqués de Valdecilla had vitamin D deficiency.
So, should everyone start taking vitamin D now even if it isn't clear whether it might help with Covid-19? Men typically had lower levels than women.
Overall, COVID-related skin changes are so common that researchers behind the COVID Symptom Study say they should be considered a fourth key sign of COVID-19, along with fever, cough and loss of smell or taste.

Many never develop other symptoms of COVID-19, and when they do, symptoms tend to be mild. These patients are known as COVID long haulers.
"Still, getting sufficient â€" though not too much â€" vitamin D, either through sunlight, supplementation, or certain foods like fatty fish, is important not just for its potential protection against the coronavirus, but for overall health.
