Ah, another "this works exactly as expected" study. So drugs designed to hinder the body's immune system lowered patients' immunities? I'll notify the Nobel committee immediately!

I know these studies have to be done to establish the science, but they're still a bit funny to me. :)

The studies may need to be done for science’s sake, but the need for them on a science news and discussion forum seems somewhat limited, no?

It's interesting to note that the drug that was pushed by Trump, hydroxychloriquine (Plaquenil) is used as an immunomodulator for lupus and Sjogren's patients (though, it's usefulness in that regard is being questioned.)

Okay, glad someone smarter than me said that. I read the headline and was like "...isn't that what we'd expect?"
