Berlin Cures…? Could BC 007 Help With Long COVID and ME/CFS?

As Carmen Scheibenbogen’s group was tracking down autoantibodies that affect the blood vessel functioning in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), a small German group called Berlin Cures was using a different assay to assess the same autoantibodies in heart failure.

They had a drug called BC 007 that’s able to bind to and neutralize autoantibodies that attach to the G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Their 2016 paper claimed their new approach was easier and possibly more effective than past treatments such as immunoadsorption that have been used to mop up these autoantibodies.

FYI: I just saw a post on twitter (don't know the rules on reposting) that Berlin Cures is not doing any study on ME, which means that in their current study they will not have ME patients. They are working entirely on LC.
