Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Mount Sinai here in New York are studying antibodies from patients who have had the virus and recovered so we've asked Dr Angela Baldwin to join us from the ABC news medical unit she is a resident physician at Montefiore Medical Center what's the hope here and how does it work they're using convalescent plasma which is when you take the plunge look from someone blanket coverage recalled in nineteen and that plasma contains antibodies the person begins the buyers and then the plasma with antibodies to the buyers are given to a person who stick with code nineteen as a treatment but this is actually not a new concept convalescent plasma has been used to treat sars Imola merger the middle eastern respiratory syndrome so it's actually a great idea that you're not signing it starting today at ten gauge miss can anyone participate patient can participate in clinical trials in order to obtain access to convalescent plasma but it's not necessarily readily available to all patients and potential need not everybody has the ability are the access to account for these trials right away so because of this given health practice that ran the FDA is facilitating access to code at nineteen combat the plasma for use in patients with serious or immediately life threatening call that nineteen interactions through this process called the emergency investigational new drug application and so this allow the use of investigational drugs for the treatment of individual patients by a licensed physician once the authorized by the FDA but to be clear this isn't a drug this isn't a treatment that would involve what injecting a sick patients with the antibodies from someone who's recovered exactly right there was not a drug in the sense that that something that's completely manufactured it's literally just taking the plasma which is the portion of the blood that has the antibodies and putting it into the person who is sick giving them little spiders to help the buyers how much hope should we place in this is a very good question I mean at this time we cannot say for certain how effective it's going to be certainly not going to be a situation where you can choose the antibodies that a person who's almost deadly sick and going to like recovered right away but it does show promise and as I mentioned before it had been used in severely ill patients
