UAE Claims To Develop Vaccine For Coronavirus02 May, 2020, By Cross Town News
NEW DELHI, May 02: A research institute in the United Arab Emirates has claimed to have found the solution the entire world is looking for on COVID-19.
Hend Al Otaiba, Director of Strategic Communications in the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs, confirmed the development in a series of tweets on social media.
“A UAE research institute has developed a breakthrough treatment for COVID-19 which could be a game-changer in the global fight against the virus. The Abu Dhabi Stem Cells Center (ADSCC) has developed an innovative method which involves extracting stem cells from a patient’s blood and reintroducing them into the lungs via inhalation of a mist, regenerating lung cells and preventing the immune system from overreacting,” said Hend Al Otaiba
“The treatment has already successfully undergone an initial phase of clinical trials — with 73 patients making full recoveries without any adverse side effects. The recipients were moderately or severely ill before treatment, with many intubated in an ICU,” Hend Al Otaiba.
“More trials are being conducted and we should have a clearer understanding of the treatment’s potential in the coming weeks, but it could have a significant impact on our ability to live with the virus until a vaccine is available,” states Hend Al Otaiba.
