Companies Race to Develop Drugs That Stay Ahead of Coronavirus Mutations - The Wall Street Journal
Jan 17, 2021 40 secs
Drugmakers are racing to develop a new generation of Covid-19 medicines to make them easier to give to patients and to stay ahead of virus mutations that could make some current drugs less effective.

After catching Covid-19, President Trump was treated with one of the drugs and credited it with his speedy recovery.

But those concerns have given way to frustration that the medicines are going unused because of challenges in administering the drugs, which can require about an hour of preparation time before the patient arrives, an hour-long infusion and one hour of monitoring to ensure patients don’t suffer allergic reactions.

To reduce the logistical burden and help get patients treated sooner, researchers are working on new antibody drugs that can be given with quick jabs in the arm, similar to flu shots.
