Gilead Sciences stated on Monday it had determined to stop a late-stage trial of its intravenous treatment, Veklury, in high-risk non-hospitalized sufferers with Covid-19.

The firm stated it now not believes that growing a multiple-day injection that requires administration in a healthcare setting addresses an unmet want for non-hospitalized sufferers.

The determination to stop the study is just not due to efficacy or security issues, Gilead stated.
