*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Astonishingly, Even if Two (2) Different New Trials (one inside China and anOther Outside) in fact Show that the Old and Failed, initially anti-African Ebola, Drug of "Remdesivir", appears to make a Flop also on Nowadays' CoronaVirus, Nevertheless, Company Pressure and Grossly Misleading Presentations in several US Establishment's Medias added to a Controversial Technocrat, currently seem to Push USA's Food and Drugs' Administration (FDA) to practically rumber-stump that Controversial Expensive commercial product, in a Hurry, reportedly Starting from the Next Few Hours !

Both these 2 Recent Studies were Supported by Remdesivir's Company "Gilead", but Both appear, in Substance, InConclusive, Despite UnSubstantiated Claims for the Contrary, on the 2nd one, Too Hastily MisPresented by some, (See Infra).

In Fact, the Chinese Tests' results, Explicitly Critical, faced attempts to be Muzzled, while the 2nd Study was presented by some in a blatantly Misleading way, (i.e. as if it would show a ...Triumph for Redmdesivir, while in Fact, it rather Confirmed its Failure to Save Human Lives, and/or appeared still much More UnCertain/UnTrustworthy than the 1st one)...

Indeed, even the "World Healh Organization" (WHO) was Obliged to Withdraw a Publication at its WebSite which resumed the Negative Conclusions of that 1st Study in China !  

But, soon Afterwards, it's Even the Prestigious Review "The LANCET" which went on to Publish those Critical Results of that China Test, in FULL TEXT...

Meanwhile, However, several US Establishment's Medias inundated the Web with repeated Quotes of some Astonishing Claims made by Controversial Technocrat Dr. Fauci, (Notorious for having Criticized US President Trump, against the popular HCQ Anti-Virus Treatment, a cheap Competitor to expensive Remedesivir), now reportedly Boasting that "Gilead" Company's 2nd Study would ..."Proven" (sic !) that Remedesivir "can Block (re-sic !!) this Virus", and "this is Opening the door to the Fact that we Now Have the Capability of Treating (re-re-sic !!!)", as he said.

Nevertheless, Facts are Facts, and they All Point to the Contrary :

- That 2nd Study (Mis-Presented as Triumphaly Positive : Comp. Supra), in Fact, does Not even Claim that Remdesivir might, eventually, Save More Human LIVES, than any Other routine Treatments against Coronavirus ! Instead, it seems that it Focuses ONLY on a Controvesial and Different Issue about the TIME (Number of Days) used by various Treatments...

But, that Different matter, had Already been Noted, even by the 1st, Chinese Critical Study (Comp. Supra), and finally Dismissed, as "Statistically Not Significant", "Requiring confirmation". At Any Case, it's Obviously NOT that matter which might "Stop" the currently Galoping Massive Tragic Deaths caused by the Virus, (not even according to that 2nd Study, Mis-presented as Triumphaly "positive" by some).

- The 1st Study, made in China, in a Crystal-Clear way, Denounced the Fact that "Remdesivir was NOT associated with ...Clinical Benefits", and "has Not been proven effective for treatment of patients with severe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)".

- On the Contrary, its Results even Noted about ...+1,2% MORE DEATHS with Remdesivir, than withOut ! On the Contrary, the 2nd Study, made Elsewhere, reportedly found -3% LESS Deaths with Remdesivir, but this "has Not reached statistical significance", even Dr. Fauci reportedly Acknowledged. 

-  While Neither of those Studies hasN't yet been submitted to Peer Review, However, that 1st Study in China has been Published (initially by WHO, and Afterwards by "The LANCET", But the 2nd Study, made Elsewhere, has Not been Published anywhere (except from a Gilead's brief Press Release)...

+ In Addition, that China Study found that + 6,5% More Patients treated with Remdesivir, than those who took only a Placebo,  faced "ADVERSE EVENTS" which made them ..."Stop early" these Tests, and Go Away...

Among the "Most common" such Adverse Effects" of Remdesivir, it's mainly "Nausea and Acute Respiratory Failure", which were Cited by Gilead itself. (In fact, that Drug has been Tested at least Since 2015, initially as a former Candidate against African Virus of "Ebola", in vain)...

237 Hospital Patients at that 1st Study in China, and More reportedly at the 2nd one, Astonishingly Dispersed ... 68 Hospitals, accross Various Other Locations, Both in the USA and Many Other Countries in the World (so that, Obviously, it becomes quasi-Impossible to ensure Equivalent Conditions between the Remdesivir and Placebo Groups),

could Not Hide, Moreover, the wider Fact that, apparently, People doN't run to Test Remdesivir at all, but, rather, prefer to Go Away : F.ex., +2 Other Tests, previously Scheduled in China, were, Finally ...Abandoned, because almost Nobody was found Willing to Participate as Guinea Pig to them !

Such Facts inevitably Remind also a Previous "Flop" that Remdesivir notoriously Faced Already in the Past, when, after having been Initially Presented as a Drug against African "EBOLA", it was Finally Rejected by Congo as "significantly LESS Effective than (Other) Treatments". +Meanwhile, among the 2 Last Patients reportedly still remaining at a Congo Hospital for Remdesivir Trials, at least 1 (i.e. ...50%), suddenly Run Away...

--------------------------

 + Moreover, while one of its Stronger Competitors, the HCQ (HydroxyChloroQuine, Together with Azithromycine antibiotic, and Zinc vitamin), currently Costs Only ...5,20 €uros per parcel, and is Free of any CopyRights, (so that practically Everybody may Produce and Sell it to the Market), on the Contrary, Remdesivir would have a Much Higher Price (some reportedly speak about ...800 €uros per Treatment !), and it would be Subjected even to Exclusive "Rights" held by Gilead Compagny, with a quasi-Monopole on its Production...

Remdesivir is a Drug Based mainly on Artificialy provoked Genetic Manipulations, which was Financially and Politically Backed by the Former US President Barack Hussein Obama (a "Socialist"/Liberal of now Opposition Dems Party) since 2015, through an US Army outlet, Initially against "Ebola", But this Failed and it was Dropped on 2019 (Comp. Supra). On the Contrary, promising HCQ-based Treatment (Comp. Supra), is reportedly seeking to Reduce Viral Charge and, particularly, to Strengthen the Natural Human Immunity protection system.

Controversial Dr Fauci, (one among the Members of White House's Anti-Coronavirus Team of Experts), had been Initially Hired at USA's Federal Administration during Former "Socialist/Liberal Dems' Party POTUS Jimmy Carter's era, (while being also reportedly Familiar with controversial Millionaire Soros, Bill Gates Sr., and the Bilderberg circle).  Since then, he has been reportedly continuing Research for a "Vaccine" against HIV, withOut Finding Any, since the 1980ies :  i.e. During about 40 Years  !

Fauci's latest Prognosis for an eventual Vaccine against the CoronaVirus, currently is, at the Best, around 1,5 Years...(And he had Already Singled out and Praised "Remdesivir" as a "Promising"Drug, as Early as Since 2 Months Ago, since the very Beginning of March).

Meanwhile, notoriously, Too Many Thousands of People Die from that Virus, Every DAY, (while FDA has Not Yet really Authorized the World-Popular HCQ).

Benedict's "Source" to revitalize Europe : - "The World needs Hope", Pope says, calling to relaunch E.U. via Human Rights !

Paris - Lourdes - Strasbourg : 12 - 17 September 2008.

The vital need to re-launch Europe can be succesfully met by defending fundamental Human Rights of the People, said Pope Benedict XVI in his 1st speech in France, at his meeting with President Nicolas Sarkozy, who currently chairs the EU.

Sarkozy replied by welcoming Christian and other religions' contribution to indispensable Public Debates on crucial issues which affect Human Dignity, Europe, even Humankind, as BioGenetics.

- "When Europeans will see and personally experience that the inalienable Rights of the Human Person .., those of their free Education, their Family life, their Work, ..their Religious Rights, ..are respected and promoted, then, these Europeans will fully understand the greatness of the European construction and will be actively involved in it", Benedict XVI stressed.

- "It's important that during France's EU Presidency, there is, indeed, a desire for the Church to contribute to protect Human Person's integrity, and I think that there is also a growing Conscience, beyond any polemics, to defend Human Rights, and, thus, contribute to ensure respect for Human Dignity", added to "EuroFora" the Pope's Spokesman, Vatican's Press Director Federico Lombardi.

- "Nobody really told us here that Lisbon Treaty was good for this or that reason to the People. They only told us that we "had" to ratify it, and tried to scare us, but failed", said 2 Irish pilgrims to "EuroFora", after 2 Majority Abstentions in 1999 and 2004 EU Elections and 3 "NO" to Referenda in France and the Netherlands in 2005, followed by the Irish "No" in 2008, during a Decade of EU Crisis since the controversial Turkey EU- bid (1999-2008).

More than .."224 cases of Murders, Torture, "Disappearancies" or Destructions" by "agents of Turkish Security forces", where all those responsible for so heavy Crimes still remain scandalously unpunished, despite regular condemnations of Ankara by Strasbourg''s European Court of Human Rights from 1996 to 2008, were examined the same week by CoE's Ministers, who decided to launch a fresh call "urging" the Turkish Authorities to end this dangerous "virtual Impunity" of criminals, without comparison to European countries.

- "Why not Ukraine, instead of Turkey ?", asked EuroFora a Journalist from "Kiev : the city where it's enough to cross the streets in order to realize that it's a European town", as Sarkozy recently said, before solemnly declaring this week, together with Ukranian President Jushenko and EU Commission's chair Baroso, EU's "recognition that Ukraine is a fully European Country, linked to Europe by culture and History".

Europe's "Christian roots" and Values, with "openess and mutual respect" to other cultures and beliefs, were highlighted by Sarkozy in harmony with Benedict XVI.

The Human person should be protected "from his inception until his natural death", added the Pope, faithful to BioEthic principles defended by his predecessor and collaborator, John Paul II, of topical importance in France, Europe and the World today, as Sarkozy announced :

- "Fast and important progres in Genetic Science and procreation raise delicate BioEthical Questions to our Democracies", which "involve our view of Humans and Life, and can lead to Social Mutations. That's why they cannot remain only a business of experts", hestressed.

- "It's Politician's responsibility to set a proper framework for such Public Debates", as "France will do on BioEthics in 2009". "Religious and Philosophic traditions must take part, with their ideas and centuries' long experience : A positive Laicity is an open invitation to Dialogue", he said.

- "France engaged in Europe at another Debate on how to make Financial Capitalism more moral", and the "Social doctrine of the Church fits well what is at stake in modern Globalized Economy"

- "But, a "Real Dialogue is not for an elite of a Globalized world : It penetrates deep into the People : That's why Churches should actively participate : .. It's bringing New Oxygen to Public Debates", stressed Sarkozy.

- "Democracy must not be cut off Reason", which is "compatible with Faith", thanks to "the meeting between Christianism and Greek philosophy ", he added, referring to Pope's views. "It means to advance with logic arguments, search what's best and respect common principles of thinking :... It's an everyday need for Public Administration and the Political Debate", he added.
----------------------------
Pope Benedict's 1st visit to France looked like the start of a brillant, manifold demonstration that this was well-founded and could become true in the lives of the People : After its Theoretical foundations unfolded at a "speech to the world of Culture", inaugurating Bernadins' cultural centre, and its dogmatic instrument shaped at an address to the Clergy in the Historic Notre Dame' Cathedral, he started to resolutely reach out to the People :

The move went upwards like Bach's music : Begining with a call to more than fifteen thousand enthousiastic Youngsters gathered at Notre Dame's parvis with overnight celebrations, it gained strength in an impressive open-air Mass at Paris'central Invalides'area facing Alexander III's bridge, attended by more than 150.000 people, French Prime Minister Fillon, many Ministers, Foreign Ambassadors, etc, and culminated in a series of pan-European Mega-meetings at Lourdes 150th anniversary, together with all French Bishops, EU Commission's vice-Chairman Barrot, and some 200.000 enthousiastic People from all over Europe and beyond : After a Sea of Lights astonishingly braved Saturday Night's rain, an open-air mass at riverside fields among Pyrenees' Mountains Sunday Morning, was followed on Monday by a Sea of "Compassion" to those facing Health or Life threats, surrounded by an endless gathering of People, whose gigantic dimensions obviously surprised the organisers..

Meanwhile, Benedict had the occasion to speak to the French Priests at Notre Dame of Paris, and with the Bishops at Lourdes, where they prepare a crucial November plenary meeting, due to take important decisions on imminent EU debates and choices about Europe's identity, BioEthics, etc.
-------
- "A new way of thinking about Laicity has become necessary", agreed the Pope with President Sarkozy at Elysee. While keeping the "distinction between Politics and Religion, to guarantee Citizens' Liberty", "religion is important for shaping Consciousness and contributing, together with others, to create a basic Ethical Consensus in society".

- "Searching Essential realities", (as "God" for christians), needs "Speech : "Logos" in greek, i.e. Reason", "able to shape a Community","with creative work transforming Human History". But "Dialogue" is instrumental for "Reason", because it's the way to "search" for Truth", in "Liberty", according to Greek Platonic Philosophy, with Socrates' dialectics. "Reason" implies "Spirit and Liberty", hence the polyphonic "Music" of "Dialogue", in a responsible, "well balanced" way, to avoid "destruction".

Starting with a "Dialogue between christians and intellectual or artistic movements" highlighted at Bernardins' Cultural Center. with former Presidents Chirac and Giscard d'Estain, UNESCO's chair Anastassopoulos, etc., as well as representatives of Muslim Communities, (including a separate Turkish), after contacts with Jews at Vatican's Embassy, the Pope turned towards the People :

To French Priests : "Church built on the rock" !
---------------------

dsc01076_400


- Speaking to thousands of French Priests at Notre Dame's Cathedral, Benedict highlighted a solid "Church built on the Rock" of conscious and active persons, transmitting "a lively, energetic and sharp" "God's Speech, actively working on Human History".

"Praying together" with "representatives of Christian Churches and ecclesiastic communities", (as Orthodoxes, Armenians, Protestants, etc), he called "to reinforce the Unity of the church", against "any form of Division", around Holy Spirit', "the Word","Christ's Justice", and "Love" to fellow- humans : Essentials which "resume all holy scripts", as he said.

To Young People : "New Horizons"
------------------------
To some 15.000 enthousiastic Young People at Notre Dame's parvis, along Seine's river, Benedict spoke about "the Energy of the Holy Spirit" and "the Mystery of the Cross" : - "The Holy Spirit opens New Horizons to Human Intelligence .. and makes it conscious of the real greatness of Christ's sacrifice, dying and resurecting for World's life".

Some "may slander you as crazy, laugh at you, or even persecute you. But, "the Holy Cross is a symbol of God's love", and "givesmoral strength" : "Witness of People's pains, it's at the same time, a precious, unique expression of their Hopes", he told them at Paris' dawn.

Invalides' plateau : "People chosen to become God's friends"
---------------------------------------
At the 1st open-air Mass in Paris' center area of Invalides, facing the Grand Palais, along the river Seine, during an impressive gathering of more than 150.000, French Prime Minister Fillon, Ministers Alliot-Marie, Bachelot, Dati, Jouyet, Assembly's President Accoyer, Senate's Chair Poncelet, former 1st Lady Bernadette Chirac, former Prime Minister Raffarin, many foreign Ambassadors, and other political personalities were present. (While earlier, from the Socialist opposition, Paris' Mayor Delanoye, artist Robert Hussein a.o. assisted at the Elysee meeting).

But the "Entry Song" focused on the "People chosen to become God's Friends". The September 11 mass was Dedicated to "Saint Chrysostomus, that great priest of Constantinople", with his "wonderful eloquence and great courage to face challenges", who "made out of despaired and godless people, a people of brothers", opening a possibility to "become all one complete entity", as Pope Benedict reminded.

- "Reason never enters in real contradiction with Faith", stressed Pope Benedict, who prepared his speeches for France during a short Summer rest at Brixen/Bressanone's Seminar, whose Library honors both "Faith and Science".. - "We must use not only our Reason, but also our Faith" : "Get away from Idolatry", "cupidity", "avidity for money, power or even knowledge deviating from essential aims", and other "falses appearances". and "build your Home on the Rock", "with the force that Holy Spirit gives to those who let it act in them", he said to the People of Paris.

Benedict at Lourdes : - "Become Light (even) in the Dark !"
------------------------------------------------------------------
- "Our World needs Hope", stressed Pope Benedict, addressing an impressive TorchLight procession at Lourdes' sanctuaries, where a Sea of Lights held by Hundreds of Thousands of People gathered at Pyrenee's Mountains from all over Europe astonishingly kept their flames despite a heavy Rain at a windy Dark Night...

- "150 years earlier (1858 - 2008), ..here, in the cave, ... a simple young girl, Bernadette .. saw a Light". "The everyday life of her Family was, however, made of Misery, Sadness, Sickness, Misunderstandings, Rejection and Poverty... It was hard to live in Jail". Today, "we think to all Human Beings who suffer : The innocent Victims who face Violence, War, Terrorism, Hunger, Injustices, Catastrophes, Hate and Oppression, Violations of Human Dignity and of their fundamental Rights, of their Liberty to act and think. We also think to those who face Familial problems, sufferings from Unemployment, Sickness, Infirmity, Isolation, or their situation as Immigrants, without forgetting those who suffer and die for the name of Christ", he said.

- "But the Shadows of the Earth, did not hinder Sky's Light to shine : <<The Light shines in the Dark>>" ..."A Way full of Light opens in Human History even in its Darkest moments" : ..."As Night falls, Christ tels us : <<- Keep your Lamps alight !>>."Hold a Light while walking in the Night .. sums up our condition as Christians on their way : "We need light, and we are called to become Light !", Benedict stressed to People setting in motion Lights, Flags and Songs with enthousiasm.

"<<- She looked at me as a Person, who speaks to another Person>>, the poor girl had noted."Light emerges from such a Dialogue", stressed the Pope : "A small Flame called Hope, Compassion and Tenderness dwells inside those who return after being moved by Lourdes' experience". "Christ .. entrusts us with the Mission to let the Light of Charity shine : To make of our Prayers an Act of Love to our brothers and to Fraternal Charity", he concluded.
