Todos Medical Supports Long COVID Awareness Day
NEW YORK, NY, ALPHARETTA, GA and TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, March 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – Todos Medical, Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF), a comprehensive medical diagnostics and related solutions company, today announced its support for International Long COVID Awareness Day. Todos Medical is fully aligned with the Long COVID community and its effort to boost awareness, as well as calls for additional resources to be invested to fight this potentially debilitating condition.
Social media platforms around the world are hosting special online events, highlighting the impact this disease has had on everyday living. The hashtags #LongCovid and #LongCovidAwarenessDay are being circulated to facilitate much needed dialogue on the topic.
“There are tens of millions of people affected by Long COVID syndrome, post-acute sequelae of COVID cardiovascular events, and let us not forget the tremendous toll these conditions have had on caretakers and families worldwide,” said Gerald E. Commissiong, President & CEO of Todos Medical. “Long COVID is a mass disabling event that must remain at the forefront of the collective pandemic response as governments worldwide attempt to move beyond the current pandemic stage. Something needs to be done, and here at Todos we are seeking to take a leadership role in advancing real world solutions. We have published market research studies and several meaningful case studies that strongly suggest viral persistence is a key driver of Long COVID syndrome. We are seeking to open a prospective study to confirm the usefulness of our dietary supplement Tollovid in helping patients with the condition. Collectively, the Long COVID community needs to continue to push for action and educate people about the risks of Long COVID, as well as provide the support and advocacy needed for Long COVID patients.”

About Todos Medical Ltd.
Founded in Rehovot, Israel with offices in New York City, Todos Medical Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF) engineers life-saving diagnostic solutions for the early detection of a variety of cancers. The Company's state-of-the-art and patented Todos Biochemical Infrared Analyses (TBIA) is a proprietary cancer-screening technology using peripheral blood analysis that examines cancer's influence on the immune system, looking for biochemical changes in blood mononuclear cells and plasma. Todos’ two internally developed cancer-screening tests, TMB-1 and TMB-2 have received a CE mark in Europe. Todos recently acquired U.S.-based medical diagnostics company Provista Diagnostics, Inc. to gain rights to its Alpharetta, Georgia-based CLIA/CAP certified lab currently performing PCR COVID testing, Long COVID Panel analyses, and Provista's proprietary commercial-stage Videssa® breast cancer blood test. More information on Provista is available at www.provistadx.com.
Todos is also developing blood tests for the early detection of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease. The Lymphocyte Proliferation Test (LymPro Test™) is a diagnostic blood test that determines the ability of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) and monocytes to withstand an exogenous mitogenic stimulation that induces them to enter the cell cycle. It is believed that certain diseases, most notably Alzheimer's disease, are the result of compromised cellular machinery that leads to aberrant cell cycle re-entry by neurons, which then leads to apoptosis. LymPro is unique in the use of peripheral blood lymphocytes as a surrogate for neuronal cell function, suggesting a common relationship between PBLs and neurons in the brain.
Todos formed the Israeli-based majority-owned joint venture 3CL Pharma Ltd with NLC Pharma in March of 2022 to consolidate all of the intellectual property surrounding 3CL protease–based diagnostic testing and development of 3CL protease botanical and pharmaceutical inhibitors that target a fundamental reproductive mechanism of coronaviruses. 3CL Pharma, through Todos’ brand, has commercialized the 3CL protease inhibitor immune support dietary supplement Tollovid™ in the United States, is developing the dual mechanism 3CL protease inhibitor and anti-cytokine therapeutic drug candidate Tollovir™, while also developing the 3CL protease diagnostic TolloTest™.
