I included CFS/ME in the petition as BC 007 should be tested for both!
New title: Funding for BC 007 drug against Long Covid
New petition description:
Sehr geehrte Frau von der Leyen,
an estimated 5,6 million EU citizens suffer from Long Covid - exact statistics are not available. They suffer tremendously and most are unable to work. So far no therapy is available.
C007 is a drug developed by BerlinCures that neutralizes Long Covid autoantibodies. It is easy to administer, has no side effects and has so far been successfully tested in 5 healing attempts at the Erlangen University Hospital. BC007 could cure millions of those affected, it is the world's first drug against Long
But development stalled because no funding was granted.
We ask you, Frau von der Leyen, to provide EU funding for further testing of BC007. Your party colleague Mr. Laschet promised me in person on the program "Klartext" (9.9.21, 20h15, Zdf) to look into this.
Massive funding and a reduction of bureaucratic barriers were possible when developing a vaccine. Please take care of Long Covid NOW and make speedy testing of BC 007 possible!
Long Covid has already torn millions of people from their lives in the European Union alone. So far no therapies are available.
At the same time, the welfare states would save huge sums of money in terms of sick pay, disability pensions, rehabilitation and so on.
Thanks for your support,
Helga Kuipers from Berlin
