Gilead's Remdesivir effective in Rockville study of monkeys with coronavirus covid-19
Early administration of the drug made it more effective, according to a report on the study by HospiMedica.com. The drug did not reduce the monkey's shedding of the virus while infected, however, which means they would remain contagious even while on Remdesivir, if this study's finding holds in further clinical testing.
The NIAID is at 5601 Fishers Lane in the Twinbrook area of Rockville.
