*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).

Le spectaculaire succès du Président français, Nicolas Sarkozy, (en tête de l'UE jusqu'a décembre), à obtenir de suite un cessez le feu inattendu entre la Russie et la Georgie, immédiatement après sa visite aux Présidents Medvedev et Saakashvili, au pire moment de tensions et heurts violents meurtieurs, qui avaient tué plusieurs innocents et provoqué le deplacement forcé de réfugiés par milliers, lui donne incontestablement une stature vraiment européenne :

A ses liens personnels bien connus avec l'Hongrie, la Grece, l'Italie ou l'Espagne, en sus de son amitié avec la chancelière allemande Merkel, son souhait d'essayer d'attirer l'Angleterre au jeu européen, etc, s'y ajoute, maintenant, une réussite, fragile certes, mais importante, au combat pour la Paix dans la "grande" Europe du général De Gaulle, "jusqu'a l'Oural", qui inclut naturellement la Géorgie, l'Arménie et d'autres pays, et ne peut exister qu'avec rapports de confiance et partenartiat stratégique avec la Russie.

Apres avoir réussi à debloquer la situation au Liban, (pays avec liens culturels historiques en Europe), lors du Sommet pour la Méditerranée à Paris, juillet dernier, (comme atteste maintenant le prémier accord d'echange d'Ambassadeurs avec la Syrie), Sarkozy activa maintenant une présidence française de l'EU bien entreprenante, à l'autre bout de l'Europe, à Moscou, où, contrairement à Napoléon, il a été reçu avec soulagement par le nouveau président russe, ami de l'experimenté Vladimir Poutine.

Cet homme politique rélativement nouveau au plan politique européen, avec une vision souvent critique ou même critiquée, à tort ou a raison, mais ambitieuse et concrete a la fois, qui aime s'adresser aux "Européens", comme il dit, n'est-il pas bien placé pour stimuler le fameux débat sur l' "Identité de l' Europe", qu'il a proposé au Parlement Européen récemment à Strasbourg, moins d'un an avant les Elections européennes de 2009 ?

En 2007, il a réussi à faire monter spectaculairement la participation citoyenne aux élections présidentielles en France, obtenant des récords historiques :

N'est-ce pas, justement ce que l' Europe a bésoin, apres 2 abstentions majoritaires sans précedent aux Elections de 1999 et 2004, et 3 "Non" aux réferenda pour ses institutions en 2005 et 2008, pendant une décennie trouble 1999-2008, (marquée surtout par la demande controversée de la Turquie d'entrer dans l'UE eclipsant les avancées de la Monnaie unique et de la liberté de circulation à l'espace Shengen, avec consequences mal-ressenties par la majorité des citoyens, bien au-délà des clivages du passé), qui a failli stopper l'integration européenne ?

Et cela, au moment même ou une globalisation galopante met l'Europe devant un choix crucial entre saut qualitatif en avant, apte à valoriser une occasion historique exceptionelle à se développer résolument, après les vaines destructions, querelles et tensions des guerres "chaudes" ou "froides" qui lui ont couté son rang dans le Monde, ou réculer définitivement en décadence...

Alors, que certains de nos amis à la Commission en Bruxelles, lui laissent au moins un peu d'espace de mouvement, et qu'ils l'aident à tenter d'insufler de l' oxygène frais et vivifiant aux rapports entre les citoyens et une Europe qui a manifestement bésoin et mérite de retrouver d'urgence un nouveau dynamisme populaire, avec un souci de réalisme mais aussi une vision passionante pour son avenir !

Après tout, les Etats Unis d' Amérique ne se sont pas faits à coups de bureaucratie, nécessaire et utile, mais manifestement insuffisante : Sans l'impulsion d'hommes politiques originaux, d'intellectuels vraiment engagés, et, surtout, sans l'enorme énergie émanant de la conscience d'enjeux à la fois pratiques et grandioses, bien resentis par des millions de citoyens, stimulant leur adhésion active comme pioniers d'un nouveau avenir commun à construire, ils seraient encore une ex-colonie périphérique, affaiblie par stériles divisions, passif et impuissant spectateur des convulsions tragiques d'un Monde à la dérive...

Que les vrais "européens" ré-lisent au moins les fameux discours historiques sur l' Europe d'un Sarkozy bien inspiré à Strasbourg, aussi bien avant qu'après avoir gagné les élections françaises, le 21 février et le 2 juillet 2007, après son 1er sommet des Bruxelles, qui a adopté le nouveau Traité de l'UE en conclusion de la presidence allémande : Bonnes lectures pour cet été 2008, afin de préparer l' avenir qui s'ouvrira (ou fermera) à partir des élections européennes de 2009.

Peut-etre revelera-t-il plus, en ce sens, lors de ses 2 discours-debats prochains avec les eurodeputés, prévus lors des sessions plenières du Parlement Européen a Strasbourg en octobre et décembre 2008...

Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner had already unveiled President Sarkozy's intentions, during a particularly "hot" Press Conference in Paris, where he faced some's insistance for "sanctions", with a call for "a common EU stance". In the meanwhile, he was consulting "all these days" most of his EU, Russia and Georgia counterparts, (as Sarkozy's Spokesman, P-J. Henin confirmed to "EuroFora"). This allowed him to obtained the desired result, as EU Chairman, at a short, exceptional EU Summit in Brussels, afterwards.

dsc00889_400

But, Sarkozy's No 1 official, Presidential palace's Secretary General Claude Gueant, active at Elysee during the 2008 Ambassadors' Conference, (together with his Top Diplomat, the experienced David Levitte), is well known for having an overall view : A link with 2009 EU Elections at the horizon ?

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
