From the press release:- William A. Hartman, Chairman, President & CEO of Halberd Corporation, said, “It is very exciting to realize that our antibodies against the Covid-19 Spike Protein are also effective against several of the current global Covid-19 mutations. We believe that Halberd’s antibodies could be the solution for select Covid-19 mutations. Our work on antibodies continues in the search to develop even stronger bonding to the antigen’s limited number of S-protein binding sites on the surface of the virion as well as attacking the larger nucleus (N-proteins) at the cell level. This could produce an incredibly strong antibody binding mechanism to the SARS-CoV-2 antigens and their variants so that the antigens can be eliminated through the extracorporeal exposure to tuned radiofrequency energy.”
Two up days in a row might be the start of something for HALB, First things first, the stock needs to get past the .0634 area. If it does the 52 week high is .109.
