Progesterone

I don't have a link, it's on the radio, and I need to do some work once my code finishes building.

It's become clear that men fare worse than women, in terms of covid outcomes. Nobody knows why yet. There are a lot of guesses, one (hormones) is being put to the test.

My previous job was at a small company that made software for clinics and hospitals. Our bread and butter was risk models for breast and ovarian cancer. Hormone replacement therapy with progesterone was a non-trivial risk factor. I hope this doesn't turn out to be the answer.

Men may be more prone to the corona virus infection due to the ACE2 enzyme.

I think I put a link to this a few weeks ago in the "antiviral" [drugs] thread.


Edit: Here you go. Finally found it buried on page 402.

They are trying these on Long Island and LA.
