Medical researchers say they have developed a special molecule that could revolutionize the treatment of pancreatic cancer and vastly improve the odds of survival for those diagnosed with the disease. "America's Lawyer" contributor Mollye Barrows joins Rick Sanchez with the details.
The coronavirus is delaying lifesaving treatment for non-COVID-19 patients. Doctors call for more organ donors. The coronavirus is changing the world as we know it.
When infections soared earlier this year, governments worldwide implemented strict social distancing measures that slowed the global economy dramatically.
So far, more than half-a-million people have died, with 10 million infected worldwide.
But the pandemic's huge cost has forced many countries to lift restrictions and reopen their economies.
The United Kingdom, one of the world's largest economies, has one of the highest COVID-19 infection and death rates globally.
British scientists, like many others, are working around the clock to find a vaccine, and one of the country's most renowned institutions, Oxford University, is fighting the pandemic on multiple fronts.
Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology Martin Landray is one of the scientists leading The Recovery Trial, the world's largest randomised clinical trial of potential COVID-19 treatments. He is not looking for a cure on its own. He is more focused on finding treatments with drugs used for other viruses such as HIV and SARS.
But will there ever be a cure for COVID-19? Or will we all just have to learn to live with it? And how?
Find out more as Professor Martin Landray talks to Al Jazeera. Scientists the world over are looking for a vaccine that protects against COVID-19. Others are searching for a treatment to knock out the virus until a vaccine is available. VOA's Carol Pearson reports that researchers in Sweden are optimistic about their work on a treatment that could slow the progression of the disease, ease the symptoms and save lives.
Produced by: Marcus Harton The search for a coronavirus treatment has been taking scientists to unexpected sources. NBC News' Kerry Sanders reports on how llamas are helping with COVID-19 antibody research.
