"Optimistic. But you see, sf team has engineered a tiny antibody How tiny, really tiny And it looks like it could be capable of neutralizing the coronavirus right down the street and I saw the story and I was extremely excited. Joining us right now is Dr Ashish Mug Leak and Peter Walter. Nice enough to take time out of their busy day to talk to all of us about what we're trying to do. First of all, thank you for being here. And where are we and the progress in this in this research? Well, we've engineered this tiny antibodies as you said ship. Um, they call them era naps there? Nah, nobody's so they're about 10% of speakers and all antibody and they are just rock stable. So what we've done is we've we've engineered them to inactivate. Coronavirus. Was an incredible activity. And we hope that they will become available as nasal sprays or aerosols. Um so people can just inhale them and have passes immunity for a period of time. Let's go back. Let's take a step back. Okay, so it's called the Corona virus because it has a crown. It has he spikes and And there's receptors on ourselves. Um how actually how does SARS cov to enter ourselves and under normal conditions? Hey, Chip. This is a she's a man like on and previously we're hearing from Peter. Walter. Um So the way this virus actually gets in is that the spike proteins latch onto a receptor. That's on the surface of either the cells in our nose or the cells in our lungs, called Ace two receptor, and it's that direct interaction between the spike on the virus and the eighth two on our body that allows the virus toe get in. It's kind of like the key that Gets into the lock to open the door. What? Why does that? Why do ourselves have these receptors? Great question, So the ace to protein is actually an enzyme. It's an enzyme that's important in regulating some of the peptides that air that regulate our blood pressure. S so it's it's you know, some people may take drugs that are called Ace inhibitors for high blood pressure. And this 13 82 of the cousin of that other is perfect. But it exists normally to do it. You know, normal biology, and it's important for writing things. But in this case of viruses, hijacked that protein and takes it over in order to get inside myself, and it gets inside and essentially uses the machinery, the inside the cell to, uh to build. It's um it kind of comes in with this protein coat right and enters the cell. And then it just kind of opens up the coat and then allows all of its Ah, what genes I guess to get in and to use the manufacturing of the cell to grow. That's this correct. So once running virus gets in there, some 10 hours later, 1000 viruses up produced by the cell and sped out and then Already to infect and the neighboring self. Okay, so Thies nano bodies they would attach themselves to the spikes on the protein. I mean on the stars could be too. Is that the idea? That's the idea so they bind to the spike protein they inactivated and that Vassily latch onto the spike protein so tightly that they don't let go anymore, so once abound. The virus is inactivated because it doesn't have respect protein anymore to end of the self. What of these nana bodies? What is their composition? They're little proteins, their proteins that normally actually exist, and animals like llama, alpaca, our camels. Well, we've done here is engineered them from scratch, essentially but their little proteins they're like antibodies, but smaller. Amazing. Um so a starts cov two viruses so small, I read. You can put 20,000 of them on the head of a pin. And these nano bodies are much smaller than that, And obviously they're small enough that they can fit on. Actual spike on the crown of ours. How do you How do you work? It's such a small level and see this and and the process of this. When did you guys get this idea? And and along the way, How did you wore the failures? What? What was the thing that actually made you get to the point you go. Ah Ha! What was that moment? Level would be basically did it when the virus took over the road. Um we decided to take our normal the such programs and pivot them around. So we could use the technology we already were pursuing in the lab to go after after the virus. And the break point really in the Indus work. What's when we saw that these thieves know nobody's inactivate life viruses on prevent them from from proliferating? Dr John Schwartzberg from over Berkeley who has part of the joint program with You guys. Hey, was telling me about this the other day and, um, and you know, like most professors, he's slow to get excited, but he was very excited about this. What? What is the what is the next step here and you mentioned the nose. So we inhale the stars Cov two virus and it attach is to these receptors in our knows why our nose Huh? That's a great question ship. You know, Um You could imagine that from for a virus that you know, wants to be as Deadly. I'm Can you no answer more sizing the virus. But you know for a virus that's going to be deadly wants to be deadly. Um, about a really great way to increase its ability to infect people would be tip. Um, attach her latch on to something that is there at high levels in the nasal cavity. You know you do You want it to basically take hold in the first place that the virus is kind of It's going to find so That's probably one of the main reasons why this virus is so it's so contagious because it targets receptor that's that's in the nose. And and that's where the virus first takes hold. So we would we would have the spray and then we And how long would we used to spray for what it like every day if we put it both nostrils and that would then that would put the nano bodies in, uh, in a position. For this. It's a Starsk overdue virus was trapped in the in the same area. It would attach itself to it and stop it from getting into ourselves. Is that essentially it? That's precisely, it said. That's the idea. And we vote on..

"Buy American program, making it harder for contractors to qualify for a waiver and sell foreign made goods to federal agencies. It also changes rules so that More of a manufactured goods components must originate from US factories. Oh, Donna, the maker of one of the two fact themes right now being used in the United States announced today that it is beginning to test a possible booster dose. Against the South African A variant of the coronavirus Stephane Ban cell, said the move was out of an abundance of caution. After the Moderna CEO said preliminary lab tests suggested it's shot produced a weaker immune response to the South African variant. Even in the fall varies in need because of winning immunity into the elderly to put on the market that spring, we will be ready. We cannot be behind. You cannot fall behind this virus is just wanted. Be cautious not for now before future. Reaction to mar Dana's announcement from Dr John Schwartzberg, clinical professor emeritus, the infectious diseases that UC Berkeley School of Public Health Keep your face up front co host Brian Edwards tinkered it, I believe was based upon 10, humans and two monkeys. So Yes, we would have to say it's quite preliminary. The numbers just you're not very large. That said, we've been seeing other reports that success to this as well. And like, how big a drop in efficacy and the ability of the vaccine to prevent serious disease what we expect the paper reported a six full drop, which sounds enormous, but It would still mean that the vaccine would be quite effective. It's important to remember that modern incisors vaccine were 95% 94 95% protective. And protecting people about protecting people from getting sick. So six full drop would be disappointing, of course, but it doesn't mean we're going to throw the specs, you know, because it's not gonna work. It just may not work quite as well. I guess I saw that same sixfold language. I saw it in reporting on the paper. I didn't read the paper itself. I guess I don't understand what's being multiplied by six or divided by six when when they talk about a sixfold drop. What they were looking at was the protective antibody level in the blood, and it dropped six fold. They usually measure the amount of antibody in what's called A Log with Nick Scale art. 10, 100,000 and so on. So it's six full drop would mean it's still quite effective. That means there's still quite a bit of antibody. They're more so than we would have after a natural infection. You know, one of the good things about These vaccines is the appear to give us much better protective antibodies and unnatural infection would And so that gives us a little leeway there. I'm not trying to Sugarcoat these observations. They, of course are disturbing. They're not in the variance that we were seeing here yet in the United States, which is good news, But the but tied to these vaccine, and these new variance is the fact that Fizer and Darren is vaccines are very easy to change. That is we can make a change in the vaccine. We give people a very minor changes in the vaccine. Within a month, we would have it out in production. It's much like we do every year with the influence of vaccine where we change it sometimes a little bit and sometimes really dramatically so we can keep up with this. New mutant. It's just a question of How many more mutants is this virus can throw at us. After John Schwartzberg, professor of infectious diseases that U C. Berkeley School of Public Health pharmaceutical company Merck is giving up on two potential covert 19 vaccines following poor results in early stage studies. The drug maker said today that it will focus instead on studying Two possible treatments for the virus that have also yet to be approved by regulators. The company said its potential vaccines were well tolerated by patients. That they generated and inferior immune system response. Compared with other vaccines. Merc entered the race to fight covered 19 later than other tough drugmakers, California today lifted its coronavirus stay at home order for the entire state that opens the door for the reopening of businesses like barbershops, nail and hair salons. Outdoor dining and organized sports. Can't get a Scott Baba reports. Governor Gavin Newsom said of the state's month and a half long stay at home order to cut down on Corona virus related infections, Hospitalizations and deaths would be lifted this week for all five regions of the state. All regions effective immediately, are no longer in the state home order and we'll move back into the blueprint a blueprint. Many of you are familiar with the blueprint we refer to as a blueprint for a safer economy. The state will be returning to the colored tier system but adopted before the latest stay at home order, which gauges the progress each county is making and cutting down on his coronavirus case rates. 54 of the state's 58 counties will start out in the most restrictive purple tear. What's still limits many businesses and most group activities but does allow for the reopening of outdoor dining and nail and hair salons and competitive youth sports. The stay at home order was put in place last month after a massive spiking coronavirus cases and hospitalizations related the holiday travel and gatherings. Most of the state fell below the 15% ICU capacity of the state chose for its lockdown. Benchmark. No. Both the Southern California and San Joaquin Central Valley regions are still struggling with low ICU bed capacity. Newsome said that current trends show enough improvement to warn, including them in the re opening the regional state home order when in effect after a region fell below 15% ICU capacity in order to come out of the state home order, as greater Sacramento region did just recently. We project forward over a four week period and we determined I see you capacity either meets or exceeds 15%. Coronavirus numbers have been steadily improving in the state for the last two weeks after cresting growing the sharp holiday surge, According to Newsome, the number of average weekly case numbers have dropped by roughly 4000 during the last week. They've gone from 27,000 cases on January 24th 2 23,000 cases today. States positively rate is also down significantly from 13.6% on January 11th 29.4% today. And covert hospitalizations are down almost 20% over the last two weeks. ISM said the state seems to be moving in the right direction. We're seeing a flattening of the curve. Everything it should be up is up. Everything that should be down is down. Case rates positivity RATES hospitalizations, ICUs testing started to go back up as well as vaccination. Rates in this state, but we're not out of the woods. No All Bay Area counties are in purple tear individual counties may still choose to implement their own local restrictions. Alameda Contra, Kostya, Napa Cinema, Santa Clara and Marin counties. Have all announced that they will allow restaurants to reopen immediately, although San Francisco has said it will wait until Thursday and that it will maintain its 10 p.m. to 5 A.m. curfew on non essential activity. Francisco mayor London breeds and that while the latest numbers are encouraging Now is not the time to become complacent. Just keep in mind that this is just not an open door for us all of a sudden, let our hair down and do whatever we want to do. Let's keep doing what we're doing. Let's keep being smart about wearing our masks and who we interact with. Let's limit the number of people that we interact with so that we can.

The coronavirus doesn't take time off for the holiday. Please keep that in mind as you decide what to do. Tomorrow, you're gonna be with people outside of your bubble, especially inside. You're putting yourself it marked risk. Dr. John Schwartzberg and infectious disease expert at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, says the two key ways to protect yourself. If you're going to get together our face coverings and distance you want to be wearing a mask almost at all times. You've got to have that mask on and other people have to have their mask on your inside. I'd want to be as far away from other people as possible. Open the windows. Even if it's cold, let fresh air circulating the room. Having the gathering outside is much safer than inside, even with the Windows open, and even if you're outside, everyone should wear masks and stay apart. Thing is about distance and not.

"There's pretty good evidence that he had pneumonia, which means that he may have had significant inflammation in his lungs, and the decks of methods own may have helped with that. I'm not sure if the room disappear, played much of a role. This was a problem. I mean, is it fair to say that his treatment Wass special and that if most people who got sick would benefit from the same treatment Um, if the treatment helped him most people can't would certainly want to get it. But they certainly can't count on getting it there. Very few people who I don't think there's well, I know there's nobody in the United States. There's nobody on this planet that got the treatment that he got. That is he got the monoclonal antibodies that haven't even been approved for use. He got it right away. That would never have happened under any other circumstance. Hey, got the ring disappear. Quite early in the course. And, curiously, he was put on the deck Dixon Methadone, which suggested that he was a lot sicker than anybody, let on. Well, okay, so there's one thing you were saying earlier and that was about leadership. I just want I want your listeners to know this in in the 1918 1919 influence of pandemic. The President United States then was Woodrow Woodrow Wilson. And he never once during his president's. He mentioned the name influenza. In spite of the fact that I'm thousands and thousands of people on this planet. Hundreds of thousands of people on this planet died. Um, actually, millions on this player that died with that It was a horrific experience. He never once mentioned it well. With Donald Trump. I wish he had followed Will Woodrow Wilson's What was what Woodrow Wilson had done and just kept his mouth shut if he had done that. We would be much better off today than we are by him. Dr Ouchi the way he talks by throwing his mask off and demeaning people who wear a mask laughing at people who who follow public health guidelines politicizing the FDA in the CDC. So And Wilson Wilson was not not a good guy, either. He was no. He was not proud of. But this keeping silent, which was a terrible thing to do. Was better than what Donald Trump has done. Yeah, we're talking to Dr John Sports Berg Burkley, U. C. Berkeley and you see a joint medical program. The thing that you know the all the questions that kind of pop up About. I think the thing that the inconsistency in the way it delivers its its disease to people. And, you know, I mean, I have four older sisters and I worry about them so much, and they're all being really safe. And really, you know, isolating just because we all know in our heads that if we can somehow get through the next 15 months, there should be something that makes us safe from this, you know, moving forward. And then we'll have something else to worry about. But right now this, But what about across the world? You know, you look at places like Japan where they've had their 126 million people. And they had 1500 people die. Is there something that we're missing here? Other than infectious? Excuse me, other than distancing and masks that may play out in the blood or the DNA of different human beings across the planet. There's no evidence at all for that. No, it's it's viruses non discriminatory and there doesn't appear to be anything genetic about people. What we found. There may be subtle things like blood type, but there's nothing just jumped out and said that this genetic this genetic pool of people is more susceptible to getting second. Morse is more likely to die. That's not panning out. To date, more than sufficient explanation for the difference between Japan, South Korea, Taiwan in the United States. Is that those countries had plans. They enacted their plans early and robustly, and they've continued to sustain those plans, and they've done very well. This country had no plan that it followed and had no leadership. Is that is that solely Because of trump a man, This is kind of a weird question to ask you, but I mean, you're just a regular guy and looking at our country like the rest of us. Do you think that there's something systemically wrong with the polarization of politics That would've made this difficult for anybody, much less? Somebody who was A borderline sociopath. It's a really interesting question. I've actually given it a great deal of thought it requires. If you've never seen somebody who has Been very ill with coverted or died from covert. And if you don't know someone who's died from Cove, it's the only way to realize and feel how bad the problem is. And to act on those feelings is they have empathy. And It takes. It's been estimated that each American on average, no 600 people. And for every American to know somebody who's died. If the virus was distributed equally throughout our population, we'd have to have about 500,000 deaths for every American to know somebody who's died, So ah, lot of Americans don't know somebody who's died just if the virus was distributed equally, But we know it's not distributed equally in our society. We know that People who have black skin and brown skin are more likely to get sick from that get infected with the virus to get sick from it and to die, And that's all based upon social determinants of health, not the genetics. So if you're living in a black and brown community, you know lots of people who have gotten sick and died. But if you're not living in a black and brown community or an upper socioeconomic group People in the upper socioeconomic groups. They often don't see people who have had covert and died not nearly as many. And so it's hard to have empathy. I mean, if that's what it comes down to, and I think, because it's invisible to a lot of Americans. They are just laughing it off. Don't let me ask you one last question, and I just got to tell you. I s so enjoy speaking with you and your measured and well thought out response, doctor, somebody just text Mason, and this is something that's that's a great question. How long after receiving the vaccine? Would we gain immunity or begin to? How long does that take about? Do we know we don't know for sure yet, but it looks like it's all of the vaccines that are in line to be approved are going to be two doses. So you have to get to dose is one of them. I believe two weeks apart. Another one's going to be two of them are going to be four weeks apart. So to get immunity, you're gonna have to get two doses, so let's see it. Yet one today and that one in a month. Guestimate, on average, probably at least two weeks after the last dose, pretty to be protected. But that's just a guess. At this point.

The numbers were higher. The numbers have unstable for a longer period of time. There haven't been ups and downs and dips. At one point, Hillary was up 12 points in Michigan. But that was a weird blip. She'd been up like four points. And then in one poll, she went up 12 and then the next poll, which was a week later, he was back down to three. So as obviously it was a flawed pole. She never had the kind of lead that Joe Biden does now in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania. North Carolina, Florida. I mean, he has to win all those states. Trump has to win every one of those states. So that's the thing that you got to remember that you know, California in New York are solid, solid, You know, close to 100 electoral votes right?

The viruses that cause respiratory diseases like the cold and the flu have an easier time spreading in winter, and it's fair to assume the same could be true with a novel Corona virus. Researchers believe this is due in part to the cold, dry air. We breathe both indoors and outside. But why? I put that question to Dr John Schwartzberg, an expert on infectious diseases at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, and what we think happens is that the very low humidity causes the nasal passages in the back of the throat area to dry. Buyout and can cause little microscopic areas that would be ideal for the virus to attach to an infected for that reason, Dr Schwartzberg says, You may want to start using a humidifier right now because humidity levels right unusually low levels. Even here in the Seattle area, Dr Schwartzberg cautions that if you use a humidifier, you must be diligent about keeping it clean.
