Dr. Henry Miller and Lars Larson review the many confusing statements that have come out of the U.S. Center for Disease Control, or CDC, since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Miller and Larson talk about the recent development that the CDC released around COVID-19 being transmitted in the air, but then walking back that information. Miller also explains a new standard being introduced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, FDA, that could change the timeline for approving a COVID-19...

PRI Senor Fellow Dr. Henry Miller joins the John Batchelor Show for a two-part discussion on what can go wrong with a November vaccine for the coronavirus. Miller talks about how safe a vaccine would be this fall and discrepancies between comments from Dr. Anthony Fauci and other federal experts, noting that more data is needed from the testing and clinical trials. Miller also talks about the consistency needed to produce and distribute the vaccine and how the vaccine should...

There is widespread anticipation of the availability of vaccines to prevent COVID-19 infections so that Americans can get their lives back to some semblance of normal. Some four dozen vaccines, made with a variety of technology platforms, are now in clinical trials; nine are in large-scale safety/efficacy testing. Several of the more promising development programs have been accelerated by a White House crash program, “Operation Warp Speed,” which was launched in May. It was no secret that there would be intense pressure...

Dr. Henry Miller and Lars Larson talk about who could be eligible for an early vaccine and what data could tell us about how effective the vaccine will be on different age groups. Miller also talks about having insufficient data on vaccine clinical testing for seniors or those more at risk of COVID-19 due to those not involved in the study and sheltering at home. Miller and Larson also discuss concerns from health experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci about the coming...

Title: Here’s what you need to know about clinical trials as drug makers push forward with coronavirus vaccine studies By: Jaimy Lee Whether you’re new to investing in pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies or simply paying close attention to the race to develop a COVID-19 vaccine, questions may have occurred about how clinical trials work — here’s what you need to know to understand the process. The first thing is that we’ve never seen vaccines developed as quickly as what is happening right now....

Dr. Henry Miller and Lars Larson talk about the latest in progress in the search for a vaccine for the coronavirus pandemic, including the recent news that AstraZeneca has paused their third-stage clinical trial for a COVID-19 vaccine due to an illness to a participant. Miller talks about how the review process works when it comes to assessing the safety of a vaccine in the clinical trial phase. Dr. Miller's segment begins at the 47:00-minute mark.

There is widespread anticipation of the availability of vaccines to prevent COVID-19 infections so that Americans can get their lives back to some semblance of normal. About four dozen, made with a variety of technology platforms, are now in clinical trials, nine in large-scale safety/efficacy testing. It was hardly a secret that there would be intense pressure on the FDA from a White House desperate for good news to provide an “October Surprise” in the form of a vaccine approval before...

There is widespread anticipation of vaccines to prevent COVID-19 infections so that Americans can get their lives back to some semblance of normal. About four dozen, made with a variety of technology platforms, are now in clinical trials, nine in large-scale safety/efficacy testing. Vaccines have also assumed unprecedented political importance. The Washington Post reported on Sunday: “President Trump is so fixated on finding a vaccine for the novel coronavirus that in meetings about the U.S. pandemic response, little else captures his attention, according to administration...

There is widespread anticipation of the availability of vaccines to prevent COVID-19 infections so that Americans can get their lives back to some semblance of normal.  Some three dozen vaccines, made with a variety of technology platforms, are now in clinical trials. Several of the more promising development programs have been accelerated by a White House crash program, “Operation Warp Speed,” which was launched in May. It was no secret that there would be intense pressure on the FDA from a White House...

Dr. Henry Miller, M.S., M.D., joins the John Batchelor Show for his regular update on the coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19 impact on how an eventual vaccine would be distributed. Miller talks about a recent op-ed he wrote that details the dilemma vaccine makers and the government face when it comes time to distribute a COVID-19 vaccine first by breaking down different populations that need access to the vaccine first. Batchelor and Miller also talk about the impact of the election year...

Here’s a thought experiment: after the RMS Titanic collided with an iceberg, it became necessary to allocate seats on the lifeboats; there were only about 700 places for the 2208 passengers. What if seats had been auctioned, with the price determined by supply and demand—i.e., by market forces? Clearly, the wealthiest would have crowded out the others. Instead, the Captain decided that women and children should take precedence. Of course, children had the most life to lose, but why women...

here is widespread anticipation of publicly available vaccines to prevent COVID-19 infections, so that we can “get back to normal.” Some three dozen, made with a variety of technology platforms, are in clinical trials. Several of the more promising vaccine development programs have been assisted by a White House crash program, “Operation Warp Speed,” which was launched in May. At the announcement, President Donald Trump said the goal would be to have 300 million doses of a vaccine available by the end of this year. Unfortunately, but inevitably,...

Dr. Henry Miller joins the nationally-syndicated Lars Larson Show to get an update on everything COVID-19. Miller and Larson discuss the status of Operation Warp Speed, the Trump Administration's initiative to develop a coronavirus vaccine. Miller explains that the FDA said they will be very transparent as data and testing becomes finalized and he thinks there is reason to be optimistic about rapid development of a virus that is thoroughly reviewed. Miller also talks about the lack of data in international...

Accompanying the pandemic of Covid-19 infections is also an “infodemic” of inaccurate, sometimes dangerous misinformation. Based on some of the claims by people who downplay or doubt the severity of the pandemic, it might be reasonable to conclude that the outbreak is no worse influenza in a bad year. Some even maintain that Covid-19 is less a concern than flu, and cite the pandemics of 1917-1918 and 1968 as evidence. Central to these opinions is a perceived overall low death rate, especially...

By: Henry I. Miller, M.S., M.D., Kathleen L. Hefferon, Justin R. St. Juliana Like most institutions in American society, academia has been badly shaken by Covid-19. Many universities in the Northeast abruptly closed as the pandemic accelerated. Students were sent home, which in some cases involved returning to the other side of the globe. Faculty and staff at many institutions were offered emergency training workshops on everything from supporting student mental health to how to use video-conferencing platforms. Even before the pandemic,...

There is widespread anticipation of vaccines to prevent COVID-19 infections so life can “get back to normal.” Some three dozen vaccines, made with a variety of technology platforms, or approaches (naked RNA, weakened or killed viruses, hybrid viruses, subunit vaccines, etc.), are now in clinical trials. Many of these vaccine development programs have been assisted by a White House crash program, “Operation Warp Speed,” which was launched in May. At the announcement, President Trump said the goal would be to have 300 million doses of a...

Despite the surge of new cases of COVID-19, increases in the percentage of positive tests, and scores of ICUs at or near capacity, some commentators are still saying things like, “The so-called surge in cases is more fake news pushed by media cheerleaders eager to destroy the U.S. economy and culture if it makes Trump a one-term president,” and “in fact, our pandemic nightmare might well be coming to an end.” They and others emphasize that the daily number of Covid-19...

Dr. Henry Miller talks about new symptoms showing up in those infected with COVID-19, some of which are different than the initial ones noticed at the start of the pandemic. Miller explains the findings come from different studies, including an Italian study that showed many continuing symptoms after the coronavirus pandemic passed.

The John Batchelor Show interviews Dr. Henry Miller to talk about the latest debate around wearing masks, social distancing, and when we can expect testing to peak and decline. Miller and Batchelor also talk about those who may have the coronavirus who are undetected, and how many Americans are truly undetected in relation to testing. ...

It’s good news that the death rate from Covid-19 has trended dramatically downward since April, even as the number of new cases is surging. But it’s far from the whole story. Unlike common colds caused by other coronaviruses, Covid-19 is more than a transient, self-limited respiratory infection. There have been numerous reports of nonrespiratory manifestations, including loss of smell or taste, confusion and cognitive impairments, fainting, sudden muscle weakness or paralysis, seizures, ischemic strokes, kidney damage, abnormal blood-coagulation tests, transmission to...
