If okra is not one of your favorites, then this is a must read for you, especially if you suffer from knee pain Okra (namely Lady’s Finger, bhindi, vendakkai) used to only make a special appearance in my kitchen until recently but, in the community I live, it is quite popular. Even among kids. That’s the reason why you find them fresh and in plenty in the Marwadi shops in front of our gate. I eat this veggie mostly for a change without really liking its slipperiness or taste. I opt for open pan cooking for Bhindi, a tasty and healthier method suggested by a friend.

Roche Prepares to Launch COVID-19 Antibody Test System

Article | March 20, 2020

Swiss pharma giant Roche is joining the race to develop a test for COVID-19 antibodies in people who have been exposed to the disease. This morning, Roche announced the development and upcoming launch of its Elecsys Anti-SARS-CoV-2 serology test to detect antibodies in people who have been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Roche is eying May for the launch of the test in Europe and is in talks with the U.S Food and Drug Administration for emergency approval of the system. Antibody testing is central to help identify people who have been infected by the virus, especially those who may have been infected but did not display symptoms, the company said. Roche noted that as more information becomes available about immunity levels to COVID-19, society can return to a sense of normal much more quickly. Roche’s test will join a number of other antibody tests that have recently come on the market. Earlier this month the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first blood test for COVID-19 antibodies.

One minor side effect of the pandemic is that perhaps more people will learn about what drug research and clinical trials can really be like. Today’s example: we have a clinical trial of hydroxychloroquine from Wuhan that has just published on a preprint server. What’s good is that this one is blinded, randomized, and controlled (like the earlier hydroxychloroquine which one I blogged about here from Zhejiang University, so we can actually talk about it rather than just spend all our time wondering what the heck is going on.
