7:32 am
>> area. this bill is bill that should be taken within 5 days of getting symptoms. and it's really going to be a game changer. it's really easy to take. it's going to be likely an medicine and it most significantly it cuts or rate some not only hospitalizations but deaths as well. so nobody died in the trial who received the drug. not these are vaccinated and 8 people died in the placebo group 7% hospitalized in drug group and about 14% night. so cutting non-hospitalized patients coming in and that's easy take easy to scale up twice a day. it's almost like having time of flu for influenza. i think it's really, really going to moving forward. so if this is upheld that you would take.
7:33 am
>> at the first signs of covid just whether or not you've been vaccinated. so anybody who gets covid. you suddenly feel a cough or a sneeze or whatever your suffering. >> and you start taking this pill. >> yes, you start taking it. and the amazing thing is the side effect profile is really, really only about 10% of side effects and both the placebo and the drug arm and there were more choose discontinued. the placebo are not even the drugs. so it's going to be really safe. and i think, well, tolerated studied and 170 countries more than 700 people. and it was so good that the drug trial is have to stop the trial early because there was so much benefit in the people took the drug that it was unethical to continue his trial with giving half the placebo or sugar pill. this is amazing because okay. i got a great example. my kid who's in utah is a college kid. >> he thought mom. i have
7:34 am
covid any was like i said, well, if you have coal is breakthrough, by the way, is accident. i'm like, well, if you have covid, there's no treatment. it lets you get to the emergency room stage and then you get maybe disappear. if you're lucky. so this will be for somebody like him. is that right. like so your home with covid and you don't want to go to the hospital. >> yes, exactly. it's going to be for early you know, probably be something you can easily get prescribed. and the most amazing thing i think there's going to be evidence coming up, said it's being studied now that even in contacts of people have covid you take the pill and it will prevent you from in fact, in the first place. whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. hold on a second. we already have a vaccine for that so are you saying now now we are going to suddenly take this pill as well as the vaccine. i'm not clear on this. >> say you're in and there's say a patient in a nursing home. got covid and
7:35 am
breakthrough covid to protect the other patients. why risk you can just give them this pill and that's currently being studied. but my prediction is that it will also show benefit and not only preventing disease in the prison taking it. but preventing somebody whose expose from even getting it in the first place. okay. i don't want to get my are too much in the details because it's not out there yet. the i guess the point is when. when will it be out there. what are we waiting for? >> so right merck is showing interim results of the trial. they're planning to these results to the fda emergency use authorization. >> i mean, kind of all know the drill by now it goes to the ft. they pour with a date. i think the state island so fantastic that i couldn't imagine it not being improved pretty soon. the bill also the incredible thing is it can be easily scaled up. so, you know
7:36 am
what? what we have right now. with it's ivy only or even monoclonal antibodies for early disease, which is similar in the way we use that. that's really, really difficult to give and the says says you know, poor. i this, you know, up till it could have a lot of benefit. >> well, yeah, because i you don't want to wait in till you're in the hospital to get treatment. the whole idea is we will take this now. you know, because like you said, monoclonal antibody and and the rim to severe. that's it's too late. so i'm glad to cut that off and also monoclonal club. i love drug is all new. >> pirro here. wow. how is what a kid they call these things so simple. >> i think they'll come up with the street name at some point something that sounds really, you know, superhero like yes, yes. covid acts or something like that of all right. in the meantime, though, because this could be i don't know. you didn't say, weeks it's it's all about the vaccine still is that right.
7:37 am
know it's always going to be all about the vaccine. this is really just like the vaccine is kind of the cake and this is just like a little bit of frosting on top of the cake but you can't just eat the frosting alone. you really need to get that mean protection. >> i think that's a great point. you bring up area. this is not going to supplement of be a substitute for vaccines. this is really for people, maybe get breakthrough infection or maybe who didn't get are. >> immune response from the vaccine like people new compromise, although group was an study get nice trial. it's ok, that's great that you brought that up. i wanted to say something about people online already talking about this. yeah. and they brought up side effects and potential side effects. and what's interesting about this is they're saying that both groups in that trial. >> we're slightly more common to receive the side effects a report that with the dummy pill actually. >> so people hesitant about side effects from this. what would you say to them.
7:38 am
>> say you know, so far from the reports. i'm not very common. only about one percent of the folks who real. will this continue the drive course. they didn't know what they were getting pill or a dummy pill and 3% of the people had the wto actually discontinued it. so it just means that, you know, the power of the mind and think a month side effects is really him impressive, but also that the side effects in general is going to be really, really low probability in this truck if you think about one to 3%. one to 3. and of every 100 people will probably stop the bills because of potential side effects. all right. thanks a lot, doctor. we appreciate it. >> and we'll await for that pill. thank you. definitely. thank while we learned a lot will be right back.
7:39 am
7:40 am
7:41 am
>> another one too. the season for the job. >> a walk-off win in the bottom of the 9th inning after heart attack for giants fan of the beginning of this game. but it was a final a 5 to 4
7:42 am
and now the magic number is down to 2. so that means the giants can clinch the al west tonight if they beat the padres and the dodgers lose to the brewers. but let's just be concerned with ourselves, right. i mean, we just need to win the magic number so we can win the nl west, which would be great if we did it. if you the first time since 2012 first pitch for that game is 6.45 at oracle. so we've got 3 games 3 games versus the padres. and again, the magic number is down to 2 to get the title. and that's we want is the division title and that's why we're rep and its magic somehow this is supposed to work on some of the john has been you'll see when we get back. go giants of or 2. we'll be right back.
