PharmSci Today #8

Gino talks to Dr Hubert Bland from pharmaceutical company Sanofi, discussing the prospects for coronavirus treatments and vaccines.

In this podcast, Sanofi will talk about experimental vaccines and a few existing medicines that are approved for other indications. 

Sanofi wants to be very clear that use of any of its medicines in COVID-19 is off-label, entirely experimental at this stage – therefore unproven. Sanofi wants to caution they are not endorsing use of these medicines. 

Their intent is to explain to the society’s listeners the current status of these studies.
