Newspaper Asks FDA Why They Pulled Monoclonal Treatment and They Clam Up

Tennessee Star-

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Monday unexpectedly pulled its Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for monoclonal antibody treatments for COVID-19, dealing a blow to states like Florida which have been using the treatment effectively for months.

“Without a shred of clinical data to support this action, Biden has forced trained medical professionals to choose between treating their patients or breaking the law,” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said in response to the FDA’s decree. “This indefensible edict takes treatment out of the hands of medical professionals and will cost some Americans their lives. There are real-world implications to Biden’s medical authoritarianism – Americans’ access to treatments is now subject to the whims of a failing president.”

Asked for its reasoning, Chanapa Tantibanchachai, the FDA’s self-styled monoclonal antibody czar, directed The Florida Capital Star to an FDA press release.

“In light of the most recent information and data available, today, the FDA revised the authorizations for two monoclonal antibody treatments – bamlanivimab and etesevimab (administered together) and REGEN-COV (casirivimab and imdevimab) – to limit their use to only when the patient is likely to have been infected with or exposed to a variant that is susceptible to these treatments,” that release says.

“Because data show these treatments are highly unlikely to be active against the omicron variant, which is circulating at a very high frequency throughout the United States, these treatments are not authorized for use in any U.S. states, territories, and jurisdictions at this time,” it continues. “In the future, if patients in certain geographic regions are likely to be infected or exposed to a variant that is susceptible to these treatments, then use of these treatments may be authorized in these regions.”

The FDA did not specify the data to which it referred in its press release.

That led to a host of follow up questions from The Star.

For example, the COVID-19 vaccine, like the monoclonal antibodies, is not effective in preventing COVID-19. Still, it remains on the market.

“At this time, the available evidence supports the effectiveness of the authorized or approved vaccines, particularly when boosted, in preventing COVID-19 and serious clinical outcomes associated with COVID-19, including hospitalization and death,” Tantibanchachai said when asked why the vaccines have not been pulled due to effectiveness.

Some questions went unanswered, including the following:

The FDA was embroiled in scandal when The Star confirmed in late December that Pfizer’s Comirnaty vaccine, the only one with full FDA approval, was not being distributed in the United States.

Instead, the EUA approved version of the vaccine was, and still is, being distributed. The EUA version of the vaccine was never pulled, even after the full approval of Comirnaty, a rare move for the FDA.

  1. They did tell him he can get them from Mexico or other 3rd world countries. The other thing is, they do not work on the Omicron variant.

  2. “Because data show these treatments are highly unlikely to be active against the omicron variant…”

    …just like ALL the “vaxxines”.

    Gonna pull THEIR EUA’s too?

    …for the EXACT SAME REASON…

  3. Speaking of not working on the omicron variant, why is the experimental mRNA jab still recommended, in addition to boosters?

    The only thing recommended for treatment of the WuFlu are things that will kill you.

    Recommended protection methods:

    1) If the jab doesn’t kill you, take this ventilator that will certainly kill you. Medications in the hospital for a WuFlu patient are not approved and don’t do any good.

    2) If you are unjabbed, please don’t do anything, especially don’t go to the hospital. Just shrivel up in the corner and die.

    3) Wear this mask ALL DAY that collects bacteria and hopefully die from it.

    4) Commit suicide or overdose on drugs because you don’t have a job, you are on lockdown, you fear being around other people, you can’t be around your family or friends.

    5) Vitamins, exercise, and healthy eating are not and have never been successful in keeping healthy against WuFlu. In particular, please don’t lose weight, keep your fat on. Changing to a healthy lifestyle is not FDA approved and is far-right misinformation.

  4. Because the Chicom Mafia and their demented “stupid son of a bitch” figurehead don’t want people getting saved or healthy!

  5. Monoclonal antibodies kept my friend out of the hospital and they started feeling better that same night after treatment!

    FJB and the rest of ‘em!

    I bet the makers of monoclonal antibodies will have the last word on this bull💩. 🖕🥳🖕

  6. All Ronny DeSantis has to do is say who is the best President ever & how good his policies have been. Say please & put a little sugar on in. Now wasn’t that fun? One last thing, pull this finger…. Gotcha, it’s all the FDA, with a lil help from me of course.

    Of the people, by the people, for the people.
