In February 2020, Dr. Gilly Regev presented the OurCrowd Global Investor Summit with her lab results showing that nitric oxide completely kills different types of influenza within minutes – with the idea that it could potentially do the same for COVID-19. Weeks later, we found ourselves facing a full-blown global coronavirus pandemic, and now, Dr. Regev’s team at SaNOtize is conducting Phase II clinical trials across Canada to get their coronavirus therapeutic proven, approved and ready for frontline medical workers and beyond.
