Sanofi Ends Testing on Covid Treatment After Weak Results

Sanofi andRegeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. are suspending tests on using their rheumatoid arthritis medicine as a potential weapon against Covid-19 after weak results in a final phase of clinical trials.

The Sanofi and Regeneron effort is one of many programs to evaluate known treatments — from antiviral drugs to plasma from recovered patients — against Covid-19 in stringent clinical tests.

Sanofi Chief Executive Officer Paul Hudson previously described the tests of Kevzara in Covid-19 as a “long shot.”

Tiffany Trump, the only child of Donald Trump and second wife Marla Maples, tweeted:

The Washington Post’s “Fact Checker” column, which tracks Trump’s lies, found he crossed the 20,000 mark in July… or 12 false and misleading claims each day of his presidency. 

Tiffany Trump spent much of the president’s first term out of the public eye, but last week she delivered a prime-time speech at the Republican National Convention.
