"When we think about a virus we don't think as much about the immune response to the virus but it is just so, so critical." -David Fajgenbaum

Where do treatments come from when there's a new disease like COVID-19? The vast majority of drugs prescribed to treat COVID during the pandemic are actually old drugs. Some of the most effective have been around for as much as 70 years. In this episode of EPIDEMIC, we’re going to hear how David Fajgenbaum's quest for a treatment for his rare disease is helping find effective treatments for COVID — and other diseases — in surprising places.
