  • Good news for your hamster

    (Reuters) - Johnson & Johnson <JNJ.N> said on Thursday its experimental coronavirus vaccine prevented hamsters from getting severely ill, as the drugmaker seeks to begin large, late-stage studies in humans later this month. In the pre-clinical study reported on Thursday, Syrian golden hamsters, which are more susceptible to diseases than monkeys, were first vaccinated and then exposed to the novel coronavirus after four weeks.

          Maybe you think hamsters come from the Hamptons?

              No, they come from New Hampshire. I thought everyone knew that.

                Let me guess, the town of Hamster, New Hampshire? Hamster sort of sounds like Muenster. They must have immigrated from Germany.

                      A recent preliminary report from the Univ of Pittsburg indicates they found an antibody that protects hamsters and mice against Covid-19. The phrase "are you a mouse or a man" may take on greater importance. However, something that works in mice doesn't always translate to something that works in people. That is why science proceeds slowly and methodically.
