Cedars-Sinai Joins Clinical Trial For Possible Coronavirus Treatment Drug

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has becoming the latest hospital to take part in a clinical trial to test whether the antiviral drug remdesivir can be used as a treatment. … UC Irvine Medical Center reported last week it was also taking part. … “If a trial is coming out to be very, very positive, meaning that the results in the treatment arm compared to the placebo arm, at that point in time, sometimes the trial could actually be stopped and the FDA could review the data and decide whether it wants to approve it,” UC Irvine professor Dr. Alpesh Amin told CBS2 last week
