— Missouri Mesothelioma Victims Center

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, USA, January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Missouri Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We recommend, and we have endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to ensure a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in Missouri receives the best possible financial compensation results. In many instances-financial compensation for a Navy Veteran might exceed a million dollars. As attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to explain-mesothelioma compensation for a Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma depends on how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos. The more instances of asbestos exposure in many cases the better the compensation-as Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is always happy to explain at 800-714-0303.

"We are advocates for Navy Veterans and people with mesothelioma and our top priority is that people like this receive the best possible compensation results. Most people with mesothelioma we have been honored to assist in the last 15 years had not one-but multiple exposures to asbestos in the navy or at work. Usually when we ask them-how were-you exposed to asbestos-they offer one or two time frames. After we ask about these exposures the person recalls more exposure. As attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303 it takes a little time to make sure his client recalls as much as possible about their asbestos exposure-because their compensation depends on this." www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Missouri Mesothelioma Victims Center proudly offers their free services to a person with mesothelioma in any community in Missouri including Kansas City, St. Louis, Independence, Columbia, Lee’s Summit, O’Fallon, St. Joseph or anywhere in Missouri. www.karstvonoiste.com/

For the best possible treatment options in Missouri the Missouri Mesothelioma Victims Center suggests the following healthcare facility:

*Barnes Jewish Hospital Saint Louis, Missouri: https://www.barnesjewish.org/cancer-center

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Missouri include Veterans of the US Navy, civilian workers at Whiteman Air Force base, power plant workers, factory workers, public utility workers, plumbers, welders, industrial workers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. www.karstvonoiste.com/

The states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maine, New Jersey, West Virginia, Florida, Wyoming, Oregon, Louisiana, and Washington. However, mesothelioma and asbestos exposure lung cancer does happen in Missouri as the Missouri Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303.

How to Get Guardianship of a Parent: A New Online Course for Family Caregivers

Caregiving Expert, Advocate, & Speaker

Pamela D. Wilson – Caregiving Expert

A new online course from Pamela D Wilson offers insight into what adult children need to know about how to get legal guardianship of a parent.

Petitioning for guardianship of a parent can be an intimidating legal process. Adult children who want to “do right” by elderly parents can learn how to get guardianship in this online course.”

— Pamela D Wilson

GOLDEN, CO, USA, January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — How to Get Guardianship of a Parent – A New Online Course for Family Caregivers

Family members who are willing to become a guardian for a parent can learn about guardianship in a new online course, How to Get Guardianship of a Parent. This newly released program is offered by Pamela D Wilson, a professional fiduciary and court-appointed guardian for the elderly and disabled for more than ten years.

According to Wilson, the process to petition for guardianship is a step that a family member can take when an agreement exists about a parent’s need for a guardian. Adult children who have the best interests of parents at heart may be hesitant to petition for guardianship. Fear of high legal costs and unfamiliarity in working with attorneys is a concern of family caregivers interested in pursuing guardianship.

Fears also exist when adult protective services or the state becomes involved in the life of a parent. Public guardians may be appointed by the state as a last resort when no other willing decision-makers or qualified family members exist. Not all states have public guardian programs. In states where private guardian practices exist, selecting a professional fiduciary to serve as a guardian is an alternative to the state taking over a parent's life if family members are unwilling or unable to serve as a court-appointed guardian.

A Free On-Demand Webinar Gives Family Members Confidence About Becoming a Guardian

In a free-on-demand-webinar, Wilson shares the course outline that includes sections about medical decision-making, how to determine if a parent needs a guardian, the process of petitioning for guardianship, and most importantly, the responsibilities of being a guardian. The program gives adult children confidence and insights about what it takes to be a guardian for a parent and the process to petition the court for guardianship.

A high level of interest in obtaining legal guardianship of a parent exists. Wilson's course is purposely affordable at $97—less than the cost of submitting a guardianship petition in most states and lower than the hourly rate of an elder law or probate attorney $250 or more an hour. In the program, Wilson shares unexpected aspects of being a family guardian so that participants are aware of the level of advocacy necessary to work with healthcare and other service providers.

She also shares when hiring an elder law or probate litigator may be wise for contested guardianship hearings that can cost upwards of $5,000 or more. Wilson is an expert in guardianship and care management and has testified at numerous court hearings for both contested and uncontested guardianship on behalf of her clients.

Why Might a Parent Need a Guardian?

Adult guardianship is a process to protect vulnerable persons whose functional limitations prevent evaluating information and making informed decisions about health, money, safety, and well-being. The term guardian usually applies to healthcare. However, legal terminology differs by state. In some states, a guardian of the person is appointed for healthcare matters and a guardian of property for financial matters. If a family member serves in both roles, some type of oversight can minimize the potential of abuse by a family guardian.

Adult children who become involved in the care of parents diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s may struggle to provide care when a parent is unable to recognize self-care deficits. In these caregiving situations, elderly parents may forget to take medications and attend doctor appointments. Weight loss often occurs as a result of forgetting to eat. Bathing, hygiene, and remembering to change dirty clothing are often inconsistent at best. This lack of self-care and insight result in self-harm or neglect for a person who is cognitively impaired.

In the online guardianship course, Wilson discusses the difference between the decision-making power of an agent under a durable medical power of attorney appointment versus a court-appointed guardian. The difference between legal capacity and medical capacity is also discussed. Family guardians must be aware that the healthcare system holds contrasting opinions about the ability of a person diagnosed with memory loss to make decisions. This difference of opinion can result in harm to an elderly parent when a guardian lacks education about managing healthcare needs.

Vulnerable Elderly With Memory Loss Can Benefit from Guardianship

Memory loss is a cruel diagnosis for the elderly living alone, with a spouse, or with children and their caregivers. Add to memory loss, substance abuse, and mental illness and care situations exist where adult children and spouses feel overwhelmed by the day-to-day care. A parent who was a career airline pilot or a company executive over time becomes unable to recognize a spouse or children, hold a fork and feed him or herself or forget how to walk.

Older adults living alone without family near are the most vulnerable to abuse by non-family caregivers, home repair personnel, and other acquaintances who realize they have memory loss. Isolated elderly without access to transportation may not receive ongoing medical care that might diagnose memory loss. As a result, neighbors or others may report concerns to adult protective services for an investigation.

Family Guardians Benefit from Education

The best family care situations occur when adult children are willing and able to serve as guardians for parents. Even still, education gaps exist about the high duty of care and legal responsibilities of a court-appointed guardian.

Uneducated family members may believe that after becoming a parent's guardian, sole control over decision making and full access to financial resources exist. Not so. A guardian's role is to make decisions as a parent would have made the same decisions—not the decisions the guardian would choose to make for him or herself. All family guardians are encouraged to seek education about the role of being a guardian and managing care for aging parents.

Doctors w/o Jobs Asks the Assoc. of American Medical Colleges Why it Isn’t Doing More to Ensure U.S. Doctors Can Work

Doctors are looking for jobs — even in a doctor shortage and even in a pandemic.

Doctors without Jobs releases a broadcast spot asking why the Association of American Medical Colleges isn’t doing more to ensure doctors can practice medicine.

Unmatched doctors are silent no more. Doctors are now publicly asking why they are being denied medical residencies at teaching hospitals.”

— Kevin Lynn

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, Doctors without Jobs, a group which works to encourage the adoption of policies that prioritize U.S. doctors for medical residencies, announced the release of a broadcast spot asking why the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) isn’t doing more to ensure U.S. doctors can practice medicine.

“Denied medical residencies – the final step in doctors’ long journey to being able to hang out a physician’s shingle – the talented individuals who spent years studying medicine have been sidelined for years,” said Kevin Lynn, founder of Doctors without Jobs. “They’ve often suffered in silence as their plight has been ignored by the very organizations and power structure that should be working to ensure U.S. medical graduates can provide care in our communities.

“But unmatched doctors are silent no more. Through Doctors without Jobs, Unmatched and Unemployed Doctors of America (UAUDOA) and other groups, doctors are now publicly asking why they are being denied medical residencies at teaching hospitals and having their careers stopped after eight years of study and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loans.”

The spot targeting the Association of American Medical Colleges notes that the group purportedly represents American medical college graduates and then asks, “So why are they promoting a policy that allows foreign medical students to take residencies from American students?”

While more than 10,000 American medical school graduates (doctors) can’t get U.S. residencies – so can’t practice medicine – more than 4,000 residencies each year are given to foreign doctors instead of Americans, it’s noted. At the same time, the AAMC is saying we need more foreign doctors for the health of our nation.

When the U.S. has so many American doctors who can’t find residencies, which are funded by American taxpayers, the video spot questions the wisdom of this.

The spot ends with a call for the AAMC to change their policy of putting foreign medical students ahead of Americans.

Watch the spot here.

To reinforce the urgency of putting thousands of doctors to work, unmatched physicians and supporters will hold a rally today in front of the Association of American Medical Colleges in Washington, D.C.

The spot was produced for Doctors without Jobs by Davis Advertising, Washington, D.C.

DONY MASK is made from 100% antibacterial cotton (with nano silver technology) & features three layers, they comply with the CDC’s guidelines for face masks.

The Dony Mask offers unbelievable protection from COVID-19 and other viruses, and it is very comfortable to wear. We have Exclusive Distributors in Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Malaysia, UAE.”

— Henry Pham, CEO of Dony Garment

HO CHI MINH, VIETNAM, January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dony Mask – not only protect yourself but also saving costs, nature-friendly and comfortable after a long using time.

Nowadays, facial masks have become a necessary item for everyone due to environmental pollution and the effects of COVID-19. These things changed people's habits a lot, facial masks are used in working conditions only but not for everyday purposes.

As the demand for facial masks is sharply increasing, there is more kind of facial masks than ever. So to know how to choose a suitable mask among hundred kinds in the market is very important. Dony Mask is one of the companies that produce high-quality mask with lots of outstanding features and also saving costs, nature-friendly, giving comfort even after a long using time.

Saving costs and especially for retailers/ distributors
Dony Mask produces masks that not only meet the required standards to protect people healthy but also save costs.
Dony Mask can be washed and continue to be used up to 60 washes. So it helps saving costs a lot for buyers. One-time using masks in the market might be cheaper but they have shorter using time and also create a huge amount of trash to the environment.

The price is even much cheaper for distributors with bulk goods. If cooperates with Dony Masks, distributors will receive a lot of support from the company:

● An opportunity to become an exclusive partner of Dony that is allowed to sell DONY MASK on an exclusive territory.
● Provided preferential policy of priority production and best prices.
● Receive great support from Dony’s sales and production team.
● Being advertised on Dony’s official website.
● Receive free sample making (packaging, logo, and label) according to the requirements of customers.
● Granted support for related documents and certificates if needed.
● Customer proprietary protection policy.
● Granted media support on both foreign and local channels.

Dony Mask is a nature-friendly product
As mentioned above, Dony Masks produces masks with multiple uses time. The mask is certificated as 100% waterproof, UV resistance at 99.95%, and more than 99.9% antibacterial even after 60 washes.
People tend to buy one-time using masks because it may make you feel cleaner, safer but in fact, those masks will create a bulk amount of trash to the environment.
We can also see that one-time using mask is usually produced as one-layer only so it is not so protective to compare with three-layers Dony Mask.

In a quick illustration, you use a one-time using mask and after 30 days, you will throw 30 non-recycled masks into the environments. But with Dony Masks, you can use only one mask in those 60-90 days without creating any trash excepting for an amount of water to wash your mask.

Giving comfort after a long using time
Since people will have to wear a facial mask for a very long time every day so comfort is quite necessary to decide which kind of mask to buy. Dony Mask’s product is designed to close to fit and breathable to people. It gives people comfort even after a long wearing time.
Dony Mask creates a soft nose bridge, elastic cord, and outstanding breathing resistance (mmH2O) at an excellent level of 1.8.

The mask strap can extend 270% of its original length so that it reduces the discomfort for users with different face sizes.

The mask is produced with waterproof features also that create comfort especially for users in humid and rainy areas. Moreover, a three-layer design makes Dony Mask meet the requirements of the standard by the Ministry of Health in Vietnam also.

+ Outer layer: This layer creates water-resistance to the mask. Thanks to that, the mask can prevent droplets from clinging to masks and limit viral infection.
+ The middle layer: This layer works as a filter to clean dust and prevent other agents to enter consumers’ noses and mouths.
+ Inner layer: It hinders 99.9% of bacteria from attacking.

Wrapping up
Dony Mask is a good choice for people who consider not only high-quality antibacterial, saving-cost masks but also being friendly to the environment and economical. These masks have comprehensive features against bacteria, germs, viruses, airborne pollutants, UV, and giving comfort after a long using time.

The masks are made from 100 percent antibacterial cotton (with nano silver technology) and feature three layers, they comply with the CDC’s guidelines for face masks. They’re also made with secure elastic ear loops and come in black and white.

Finished units are shipped in medical packaging. They can be sterilized with EO gas technology that is commonly used for medical supplies. An indicator strip shows the wearer if the mask has been sterilized. This commitment to quality enables DONY to export the masks to demanding countries like the USA and destinations in Europe.

Dony Mask Certificates:
+ FDA Certificate: permission to export to the U.S. market.
+ ISO 9001:2005 for safe production line in the export factory.
+ C.E. Certificate to export to the European market.
+ TUV Reach Certificate for toxic chemical-free, containing cancer-free, allergy-free components, perfectly safe for long time use
+ Aseptic Inspection Certificate: guarantee for being biologically safe and germ-free.
+ Intertek Global Certificate: optimal 100% water-resistant, 99.95% protection against UV (similar properties to premium sun cream), 99.9% antibacterial function after 60 washes. That means Dony Mask can use more than 60 wash times.
+ Certification for Free Sale: permit the free flow of products overseas, with no risks of goods confiscation at Custom office.
+ Certification for breathing resistance – mmH2O figure: checked at 1.8, suited to everyone, including sports enthusiasts, suitable for jogging, gymming.

Key Capital to Distribute Novel Immune Supplement Globally

Key Capital to Launch its Promising Oral Pill Therapeutic which is to be Marketed as a Supplement

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — KEY CAPITAL CORPORATION (OTC Pink: KCPC) advises that as SARS-CoV-2 continues to spread, and reports of increases in daily infections, hospitalizations, and deaths are becoming regular, Key Capital plans to market its Immunitor partnered potentially therapeutic oral pill as a supplement commencing early February.

Immunitor’s proprietary and novel HapV+ ionic magnesium supplement, coupled with the patented Immunitor oral pill composition and delivery method, assures delivery of this powerful magnesium to the gut mucosa without degradation for optimal immune system benefit.

Company Chairman, Peter Boonen today stated, “Magnesium is critical for and supports healthy immunity, and we have significant expectancy for our unique immunity supplement. However, it’s important to understand that this supplement is not a medicine or treatment for COVID-19 or any disease or other medical condition.”

The body’s immune system in all cases is its first line of defense against infection by viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens, and magnesium is one of the immune system's critically needed minerals. It is widely reported that around 50% of the western population is deficient in magnesium, which in turn means their immune systems are likely compromised to some degree – this gets worse with age and is why older people are more at risk where exposed to infection.

It is also known that the body immune system, as well as magnesium independently, supports natural ribosome instruction that helps to create, repair, and protect DNA and proteins. So introducing the powerful Immunitor proprietary ionic form of magnesium directly to the heart of the immune system, the gut mucosa, may well support natural immunity function. Preliminary independent laboratory tissue culture testings have also affirmed that HapV+ may strengthen antiviral defense.

Immunitor has already started production of the proprietary HapV+ magnesium at their GMP facility, and although early supplies will be limited, marketing is expected to commence globally by mid-February 2021.

Key Capital Corporation:
The Company’s focus is on the further development of its oral pill therapeutic vaccines through its Key Biotec and Immunitor partnering, particularly on advancing the highly-promising FDA Orphan Drug Designated V5 HCC liver cancer candidate. Additionally, where products can be marketed as supplements, the Company will actively explore these options.

4 Top Advances in Pain Relief Technology

Neurolumen logo

Neurolumen Device Wrap on a Leg

Neurolumen case

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — An estimated 50 million adults in the United States suffer from chronic pain. People frequently turn to addictive pain medications in their attempts to find relief from chronic pain. Thanks to advancements in medical technology, there are less invasive and better ways to treat pain. Innovative pain relief technologies such as the Neurolumen, Quell’s Wearable Pain Relief technology, Radiofrequency ablation, and the ReST Bed each can help. In this article, we’ll introduce four leading technologies that can provide relief.

1. Neurolumen is an innovative medical device that can provide fast and effective pain relief.
The device works by improving circulation thereby reducing pain. It combines light therapy with therapeutic benefits of electrical stimulation. Dramatic results are frequently obtained within the first 30 minutes to one hour of treatment with this non-invasive alternative therapy. Neurolumen is lightweight, portable and easy to wrap. Neurolumen is used to treat pain in the back, knees, shoulder, as well as pain in many other parts of the body. The Federal Workers Compensation program provides coverage for treatment of injured workers. Additionally, the Veterans Administration provides coverage for injured veterans.

2. Quell’s Wearable Pain Relief Technology sends neural pulses to the brain which triggers the body’s natural pain blockers to relieve pain. A smartphone app allows for customization of a variety of activities, sleep, gait etc. to adjust therapy intensity. It is FDA approved and found to potentially provide fast pain relief for two out of three patients

3. Radiofrequency ablation is a popular pain relief treatment targeting specific nerves to block sending pain signals to the brain. An electrical current produced by a radio wave, is used to heat up the affected nerve, zapping it to decrease pain signals to that area. It has been proven as an adequate treatment to potentially reduce pain.

4. The ReST Bed is a mattress that provides comfortable sleep for those suffering from night time pain. With the use of an app, you can customize softness or firmness of the mattress in a variety of sections of the mattress. It automatically detects when the sleeper moves and will inflate or deflate according to desired firmness. The ReST Bed can help you overcome the struggle of tossing, turning and other movements during sleep.

Applied Biology Receives IRB Approval to Study a Potential Breakthrough Therapy for Hospitalized COVID-19 Patients

Applied Biology


IRVINE, CA, USA, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Irvine, CA, January 28, 2021 — The Applied Biology team led by Flavio A. Cadegiani, MD, MSc, PhD, Andy Goren, MD, Carlos Wambier, MD, PhD along with other collaborators have recently concluded a randomized controlled study of Proxalutamide in the treatment of COVID-19 male outpatients. Two hundred and sixty two subjects were enrolled in the study. No subjects treated with Proxalutamide were hospitalized compared to 27% of the subjects treated with the standard of care alone. The results of the study have been submitted to a peer-reviewed medical journal for publication.

According to Dr. Goren “following on the promising results of Proxalutamide in the treatment of COVID-19 male outpatients, we decided to study Proxalutamide as a treatment for hospitalized COVID-19 patients not requiring mechanical ventilation.”

The study on the use of Proxalutamide for hospitalized COVID-19 male and female patients has received national IRB approval and will be conducted in several sites in Brazil.

According to Dr. Cadegiani “we are excited to commence this study that could potentially benefit millions of patients and change the course of COVID-19.”

More information about the study (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT04728802) will be made available at clinicaltrials.gov.

The approval was received on January 27, 2021 from the IRB of the National Board of Ethics Committee (CONEP), from the Brazilian Ministry of Health, under the name “The Proxa-Rescue AndroCoV Trial”, number (CAAE) 41909121.0.0000.5553.

Find out how State and Federal IT systems are working together to manage data reporting for Covid-19 vaccine production and distribution.

Many Americans who rejoiced in getting the vaccination were crushed to find their appointments canceled because the federal government had missed its forecast for vaccine deliveries to the states.”

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — President Biden shared an encouraging note this week when he spoke to reporters about increasing the incoming administration’s daily Covid-19 vaccination goal from 1 million shots to 1.5 million shots per day.

This newfound optimism is tempered, however, by the continued rocky rollout of the vaccination program across the nation.

In the face of unprecedented demand (and limited vaccine supplies), state and local public health officials are scrambling to get vaccine shots into people’s arms as soon as possible.

The process has been frustrating all around. Many Americans who rejoiced in getting one of the highly sought after vaccination appointments were crushed to find their appointments canceled because the federal government had missed its forecast for available vaccine deliveries to the states.

Even incoming CDC director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, admitted there is a major problem. Speaking to Fox News, she said, “I can’t tell you how much vaccine we have, and if I can’t tell it to you, then I can’t tell it to the governors, and I can’t tell it to the state health officials… If they don’t know how much vaccine they’re getting, not just this week but next week and the week after, they can’t plan. They can’t figure out how many sites to roll out, they can’t figure out how many vaccinators that they need, and they can’t figure out how many appointments to make for the public.”

Who Are The Primary Stakeholders In The Nation’s Covid-19 Vaccination Program?

To the casual observer, it may seem incomprehensible that we were able to develop, test, and authorize two Covid-19 vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer BioNTech for emergency use in less than a year but, so far, the process of managing the supply chain—from production to delivering shots into people’s arms— has been marked by frustrating delays.

Why is this the case?

Is it a redux of the 2013 healthcare.gov website rollout that crashed and burned in the days after it was launched with great fanfare by President Obama?

Unfortunately, the analogy has some merit.

As was the case with Obamacare, IT system architects working on system integration projects for the Covid-19 vaccination efforts across the country are facing a similar challenge of how to glue together a large number of decentralized database systems operated by distinct stakeholders, including the pharmaceutical industry manufacturers, at least five major federal government departments, approximately 64 state and local vaccination tracking systems, as well as approximately 255 million Americans over the age of 18.

If you are looking for your TLDR moment, this is it.

The sheer number of decentralized database systems handling protected health information (PHI) across multiple levels of government combined with the challenges posed by manufacturing the first-ever approved mRNA vaccines (which must be maintained at incredibly low temperatures and require two injections several weeks apart for each patient) is the kind of nightmare scenario that would wake up the average IT systems engineer in the middle the night screaming—with good reason!

The only good news in this complicated situation is that this program is single-payer; in other words, the federal government is footing the bill, and thus, there is no need to bring in the added complications that bedeviled the healthcare.gov rollout, such as calculating patient subsidies, insurance plan coverage, and CMS reimbursements.

Structure Of The “Operation Warp Speed” Vaccination Development Effort

Let’s take a deeper dive into each of these systems, starting with the structure of “Operation Warp Speed” (or OWS) that was launched in March 2020.

The two goals of the OWS program were to

– provide strong, direct financial backing from the federal government for any pharmaceutical company that showed a promising candidate for Covid-19 vaccines or therapeutics
– fund large-scale production of vaccine and therapeutic candidates (as well as critical items such as storage vials, syringes, PPE, etc.) in parallel to the research and development programs. In other words, the federal government foots the bill for ramping up production even before knowing whether clinical trials would pan out or not.

The federal government engaged McKesson as the chief central distribution contractor – a sensible choice since they had a track record since 2006 of managing the federal distribution of more than 1 50 million doses for influenza, chickenpox, and MMR vaccines.

OWS also brought on Palantir to provide “big data” supply chain tracking, inventory management, and data forecasting tools. In keeping with the warp speed Star Trek theme, the Palantir implementation was christened “Tiberius,” after Starship Enterprise’s Capt. Kirk’s middle name.

The company, founded by billionaire PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, has not been without controversy, particularly among privacy advocates, who argue that the company’s data collection efforts have gone too far. Nonetheless, Palantir successfully leveraged this and other federal contracts to take the company public in late 2020.

Extraordinary Efforts To Track Deep Freeze Temperatures For Moderna And Pfizer BioNTech MRNA-Based Vaccines

Two of the Covid-19 vaccines in development worried public health officials, the ones from Moderna and Pfizer BioNTech.

These concerns multiplied when it became apparent these two vaccines would be the first to receive FDA emergency authorization.
