Gilead’s remdesivir to commence Phase I trials as inhaled therapy to target mild Covid-19 patients

This follows previous studies highlighting that intravenously administered remdesivir did not provide a meaningful benefit to milder Covid-19 patients. Despite this, an inhaled formulation might work in a different manner.
