According to WIVB, Roswell will be one of only a few hospitals worldwide to be part of this trial.

It’s one of the very few worldwide to repurpose experimental cancer therapy as treatment for COVID-19.

Patients with cancer and COVID-19 have a risk of severe illness up to five times higher than people without cancer, which makes coronavirus especially threatening.

No word yet on a start date for the clinical trial or how many patients will be involved.
