Researchers at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv announced a "major medical breakthrough" in the face of the emerging corona virus, and said that they had found a treatment for the virus and demanded a license from the country's health authorities in order to conduct more experiments. The drug was tested on moderate and advanced patients.

The newspaper "Yediot Aharonot" reported that the hospital witnessed the experience of EXO-CD24 drug on patients and showed great effectiveness in healing the injured. However, the approval of the drug requires a scientific and medical path to be approved and to ensure its safety and effectiveness, in addition to the need to approve it from the authorities authorized to grant licenses for any new drug.

It quoted Professor Nader Arber of the hospital’s Cancer Prevention Center as saying that the drug was tested on patients with moderate and advanced stage of the virus and showed positive results by 95 percent.

He added that the drug, EXO-CD24, is inexpensive, effective and should be given once daily for five days.

Of the 30 patients who took the medication, 29 showed a significant improvement within two days and were discharged after three to five days.

Another patient in the group recovered with the virus, although her recovery period was longer by a few days.

After the encouraging positive results, the hospital appealed to the Ministry of Health to request that the trial be extended to include more patients, as the drug needs more trials to be approved.

It is noteworthy that, so far, Israel has relied on the vaccine only to confront the Corona outbreak, as it has carried out a large-scale vaccination campaign since December, and more than 3.3 million people have received the first dose of the vaccine.

According to the latest report of the Ministry of Health, Israel, which has a population of nine million, has recorded more than 675,000 cases of HIV infection, of whom 5,019 have died since the start of the outbreak.

Israel is currently registering an average of about 6,500 new cases per day, compared to about 7,000 last week, according to official figures.
