SAN DIEGO, CA – FOX News is reporting that a California-based biopharmaceutical company claims to have discovered an antibody that could shield the human body from the coronavirus and flush it out of a person’s system within four days. Fox News is the only primary news source for now reporting this and claims it as an exclusive.
“We want to emphasize there is a cure. There is a solution that works 100 percent,”Dr. Henry Ji, founder and CEO of Sorrento Therapeutics
Later Friday, Sorrento Therapeutics will announce their discovery of the STI-1499 antibody, which the San Diego company said can provide “100% inhibition” of COVID-19, adding that a treatment could be available months before a vaccine hits the market.
“We want to emphasize there is a cure. There is a solution that works 100 percent,” Dr. Henry Ji, founder and CEO of Sorrento Therapeutics, told Fox News. “If we have the neutralizing antibody in your body, you don’t need the social distancing. You can open up a society without fear.”
