"Worth millions" is the key point of the headline. The regulatory agencies are controlled by the pharmaceutical industry.

Monoclonal antibodies are a miracle cure for some people for Rheumatoid arthritis. Enbrel, Remicade, Humira have helped many, including one of my family members.

But, they are not a good weapon against a virus that mutates quickly. Against Rheumatoid Arthritis, they bind to a protein in the body that never mutates. I don't see much future in the effectiveness down this path against a virus.

WHO just came out with a policy position strongly advising against their use. Not effective against Omicron.

The vaccines are not effective either.
- cannot keep you from infection
- cannot keep you from transmission
- cannot keep you from hospitalization
- cannot keep you from dying

I'll take my chances following the Front Line Physicians thank you.
