NEW YORK, Nov. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- According to recent reports, cases are once again surging across the United States with at least 37 states seeing a rise in hospitalizations. More than 11.4 million Americans have now been infected with the virus and the number of deaths has surpassed 248,000. In fact, the average number of new daily cases in the United States is at a record, which in turn puts pressure on local hospital systems, forcing new curfews and other restrictions in various parts across the country. To help relieve some of the pressure on the healthcare system, technology comes into play. Among the numerous technologies that help, in some ways, transform the medical sector in this difficult time are the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning and advanced 3D printing. For instance, IoT is increasingly being used in healthcare to promote active patient engagement and patient-centric service delivery through advanced devices that are constantly connected with each other.

Technology is now playing a larger role in our lives, outside the healthcare industry as well. As so many people are working from home and stay away from others, the pandemic has deepened reliance on services from the technology companies across a wide range of industries.

They are aware of the effect this would have on their business," according to a report by CBI Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The trend of heavier reliance on tech services is expected to accelerate, and the meantime, various companies are racing to develop a vaccine for the virus and provide mass scale antibody tests.

Onconova Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ONTX) announced back in July that it had submitted an application with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), with the goal of obtaining funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to conduct human studies with rigosertib in COVID-19 disease patients. "Recent preclinical studies conducted with rigosertib demonstrate impressive inhibition of SARS-CoV-2 replication in Vero Cells when compared to controls including agents currently being administered and studied in SARS-CoV-2 infection, and provide the Company with optimism that further research in humans infected with SARS-CoV-2 is warranted," said Steven M. Fruchtman, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer. "While it is difficult to predict when the NIAID will consider the merits of rigosertib in this setting, a positive funding decision could allow Onconova to begin human studies in COVID-19 infected patients. As an oncology-focused company, Onconova does not currently intend to pursue clinical development in COVID-19 without additional sources of non-dilutive funding."

Tonix Pharmaceuticals Holding Corp. (NASDAQ: TNXP) announced last month that the first patient was enrolled in the observational COV-LOGIC study (TNX-C001), a study of humoral (antibody) and cellular (T cell) immune responses to SARS-CoV-2 in volunteers who have recovered or remain asymptomatic after exposure to COVID-19. The research is part of an ongoing and broader collaboration between Tonix and Southern Research to develop and conduct animal testing of Tonix's TNX-1800, which is a live replicating, attenuated virus vaccine designed to protect against COVID-19. "This represents a significant milestone for the Company as the data we plan to collect from recovered and asymptomatic COVID-19 volunteers in this study will help inform vaccine development on how to safely provide the same immune responses that others got from recovering from actual SARS-CoV-2 infection," said Seth Lederman, M.D., President and CEO of Tonix. "Our goal with TNX-1800 is to develop a vaccine that is well tolerated, produces strong, long-lasting immunity, and can be rapidly and broadly deployed. The features of a protective immune response to SARS-CoV-2 remain unknown. But since SARS-CoV-2 is a virus, we believe that T cell responses, in particular T Helper Type 1, or TH1 responses, will play an important, if not dominant, role in protecting against serious illness from COVID-19."
Aytu BioScience, Inc. (NASDAQ: AYTU) reported back in September that it had signed an agreement to distribute the Pinnacle CovID RAD Rapid Antigen Detection Test worldwide.

The CovID RAD Rapid Antigen Detection Test was developed by U.S.-based Pinnacle IVD Corporation, a leader in colon cancer screening and other in-vitro diagnostics. The Pinnacle CovID RAD Rapid Antigen Detection Test is a lateral flow immunoassay intended for the qualitative detection of nucleocapsid protein antigens from SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal swab specimens from individuals who are suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider.
