Can you venture a guess as to why they denied emergency use?
Because my bet is on money.
The FDA recently approved Pfizer’s experimental Covid-19 vaccine despite having zero longitudinal studies on any of the potential side effects, including newly uncovered, and potentially worrying effects on women’s health.
Despite all of this, The FDA has reportedly denied emergency use clearance for a drug known as lenzilumab a monoclonal antibody treatment, citing a lack of substantial safety data as the reason…….
These are the same people who fast tracked Pfizer’s vaccine…..
Joe Rogan recently made headlines when he announced that he used monoclonal antibody treatment as part of his overall regimen to combat Covid-19.

With all due respect @DrWoodcockFDA, would you please be so kind Ma'am and explain what made the @US_FDA believe that the benefits of @humanigen's #lenzilumab do not outweigh the risks? A response would be highly appreciated pic.twitter.com/B7HHgw9pAO

The Epoch Times highlights a letter from The FDA which states:
“In its letter, FDA stated that it was unable to conclude that the known and potential benefits of lenzilumab outweigh the known and potential risks of its use as a treatment for COVID-19,” the Burlingame, California-based firm said in a statement.
The head of Humanigen, Cameron Durrant, said that the company plans to keep trying to develop the drug.
“We believe the ongoing ACTIV-5/BET-B trial, which has been advanced to enroll up to 500 patients, may provide additional safety and efficacy data sufficient to support our efforts to obtain an [emergency use authorization] to treat hospitalized COVID-19 patients,” he said.
Someone is lying here…
“FDA stated that it was unable to conclude that the known and potential benefits of lenzilumab outweigh the known and potential risks of its use as a treatment for COVID-19.”

Reuters had more details:
Humanigen expects an ongoing study to provide additional safety and efficacy data to support its new EUA request.
The company filed its application with the FDA for emergency use of the drug in May, citing late-stage trial data.
Humanigen also started the process of UK authorization for the drug in June through a rolling review submission.
