https://sebastianrushworth.com/2021/05/09/update-on-ivermectin-for-covid-19/

Back in January I wrote an article about four randomized controlled trials of ivermectin as a treatment for covid-19 that had at that time released their results to the public. Each of those four trials had promising results, but each was also too small individually to show any meaningful impact on the hard outcomes we really care about, like death. When I meta-analyzed them together however, the results suddenly appeared very impressive. Here’s what that meta-analysis looked like:



It showed a massive 78% reduction in mortality in patients treated with covid-19. Mortality is the hardest of hard end points, which means it’s the hardest for researchers to manipulate and therefore the least open to bias. Either someone’s dead, or they’re alive. End of story.

You would have thought that this strong overall signal of benefit in the midst of a pandemic would have mobilized the powers that be to arrange multiple large randomized trials to confirm these results as quickly as possible, and that the major medical journals would be falling over each other to be the first to publish these studies.

That hasn’t happened.

Rather the opposite, in fact. South Africa has even gone so far as to ban doctors from using ivermectin on covid-19 patients. And as far as I can tell, most of the discussion about ivermectin in mainstream media (and in the medical press) has centred not around its relative merits, but more around how its proponents are clearly deluded tin foil hat wearing crazies who are using social media to manipulate the masses.

In spite of this, trial results have continued to appear. That means we should now be able to conclude with even greater certainty whether or not ivermectin is effective against covid-19. Since there are so many of these trials popping up now, I’ve decided to limit the discussion here only to the ones I’ve been able to find that had at least 150 participants, and that compared ivermectin to placebo (although I’ll add even the smaller trials I’ve found in to the updated meta-analysis at the end).

As before, it appears that rich western countries have very little interest in studying ivermectin as a treatment for covid. The three new trials that had at least 150 participants and compared ivermectin with placebo were conducted in Colombia, Iran, and Argentina. We’ll go through each in turn. ...

What we see is a 62% reduction in the relative risk of dying among covid patients treated with ivermectin. That would mean that ivermectin prevents roughly three out of five covid deaths. The reduction is statistically significant (p-value 0,004). In other words, the weight of evidence supporting ivermectin continues to pile up. It is now far stronger than the evidence that led to widespred use of remdesivir earlier in the pandemic, and the effect is much larger and more important (remdesivir was only ever shown to marginally decrease length of hospital stay, it was never shown to have any effect on risk of dying).

I understand why pharmaceutical companies don’t like ivermectin. It’s a cheap generic drug. Even Merck, the company that invented ivermectin, is doing it’s best to destroy the drug’s reputation at the moment. This can only be explained by the fact that Merck is currently developing two expensive new covid drugs, and doesn’t want an off-patent drug, which it can no longer make any profit from, competing with them.

The only reason I can think to understand why the broader medical establishment, however, is still so anti-ivermectin is that these studies have all been done outside the rich west. Apparently doctors and scientists outside North America and Western Europe can’t be trusted, unless they’re saying things that are in line with our pre-conceived notions.


And HCQ falls into that same bucket. Even worse - to admit HCQ works would be to admit Trump was right about something.

Liberals would rather that millions die than that Trump be allowed to be right about anything. They hate Trump more than they love their fellow humans.

Hi, did you know today is World Ivermectin day? Some outstanding videos about Ivermectin on Trialsitenews today. https://trialsitenews.com/world-ivermectin-day-north-america-panel/
It's beyond criminal that this medicine is not being used in every hospital with a coof patient.

Double-blind study shows ivermectin reduces disease’s duration and infectiousness
23   Patrick   2021 Aug 4, 12:52am  

Twenty countries are using Ivermectin to treat Covid-19. They include Mexico, Guatemala, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Portugal, Nigeria, and Egypt. In South Africa doctors are allowed to prescribe Ivermectin, but it is not being rolled out everywhere and in hospitals and clinics.

According to Jackie Stone, a doctor in Zimbabwe, since January – when Ivermectin began to be used – it has cut COVID hospital admissions and deaths over 70%.

“The death rate rose sharply in January and peaked on the 25th at 70 deaths per day. Official authorisation for the use of Ivermectin was granted on 26th January. Just one month later, on 26th February, the COVID death rate had fallen to zero”.

DURHAM, N.C. -- A new study led by the Duke Clinical Research Institute is looking at whether three existing medications would treat mild-to-moderate COVID-19 effectively. (More information on the study is available here.)

The three repurposed medications, already approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for other uses, are:

Ivermectin, used to treat parasitic infections;
Fluticasone, an inhaled steroid commonly prescribed for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; and
Fluvoxamine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), often prescribed for depression.
On Tuesday, institute executive director Adrian Hernandez discussed the study with reporters in a virtual media briefing, where he touched on the need for COVID-19 therapies and making it easy for people across the country to take part in the study.

Watch the briefing on YouTube.

Here are excerpts:

TREATING MILD-TO-MODERATE COVID-19
A study led by the Duke Clinical Research Institute has expanded its testing platform to evaluate three repurposed medications in the search for effective, safe treatments for mild-to-moderate COVID-19. Repurposed medications are those already approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for other indications.

READ MORE
On the importance of testing COVID therapies

“We are in another surge here and it’s important to get answers for people who have mild to moderate COVID-19. What has been set up is a platform that will allow people anywhere across the country to join together to get those answers.”

“As we see COVID-19 surge, how can we actually address those issues by understanding what drugs work the best way and the easiest way for people to take at home if they, unfortunately, get COVID-19. We’ll be able to evaluate a number of different drugs that have a proven safety track record.”

On why the clinical trial matters now

“We are all interested in making sure we protect and prevent people from getting COVID-19 through vaccination and other efforts, but there are going to be cases when people get COVID-19 either through breakthrough cases or because someone hasn’t been vaccinated.”

“We have new variants that have developed over the last several months and we need to understand what are the best treatments that will make people feel better, faster, and also prevent them from going to the hospital or having any other poor outcomes.”


This is a nightmare for Pfizer!

Effective treatments make the clot shot unnecessary.

Why are we expecting effective and appropriate trials when we have read the Pfizer contracts? No treatment can be found.

I know it sounds insane that a contract stipulates that no treatment is permitted be found or used to cure people, but I think that's literally what the Pfizer contract says.

His primary care doctor and his urgent care doctor both refused to prescribe Ivermectin. Once I found a doctor who would prescribe it, we had to get PERMISSION from the pharmacists to fill it. Then, this decades-old generic drug cost $120 (prices have gone up since then), when a comparable dose for my horses would cost less than $10. Here is the story.
29   Ceffer   2021 Aug 13, 6:59pm  

My first dose of horse ivermectin (I took it when healthy) did not seem to bother me at all that I can determine. That means we are compatible.
30   GNL   2021 Aug 13, 7:57pm  

I mentioned that both of my 83 year old parents tested positive for Covid. They have no breathing problems but complain of being terribly tired. Dad did go to Urgent Care at Kaiser last night. He was there for 17 hours and they sent him home with blood thinners because they are concerned he may have some blood clots (no, he did not take the clot shot). He took 2 doses of horse Ivermectin this past Saturday (a week ago). I do not know if it helped him or not. Mom took 2 doses of HCQ and no more. She took these last Saturday and Sunday. The hospital has offered both of my parents an infusion of antibiotics to combat Covid.

I believe this is what they have been offered...https://www.wral.com/coronavirus/unc-health-to-expand-use-of-antibody-treatment-to-prevent-covid-19-hospitalization/19819347/

She needs to take zinc with HCQ since HCQ is the vehicle to get zinc into the cells to kill the virus.

My sister and I put both of them on a daily regimen of Quercetin, D3, C and Zinc also. There are 5 of us kids and we are not all on the same page. My parents live with my sister and she is, I would say, in charge although she would not say that. I gave what I had to the cause (Ivermectin and HCQ) and voiced my opinion. We shall see what happens. So far, so good. They are mostly tired. Dad had a fever and went to Urgent care yesterday. He is now home and was given a blood thinner in case he has blood clots (no, they did not take the clot shot).

Antibodies are pretty safe as far as I know. For example that's what lots of cancer drugs are: antibodies matched with the cancer to guide the immune system to go in for the kill.

As opposed to chemotherapy which is basically just poison that one hopes kills the weaker cancer cells more than the normal cells.

No injections at all for me thanks, not until Fauci has been tried for mass murder at least.

36   SoTex   2021 Aug 14, 6:55pm  

Nope, totally different thing. Read up on humanized monoclonal antibodies if you're interested in the tech. It's not mRNA, spike protein or any of that crap.

They gave this to Trump when he had the coof.

It's expensive as all hell.
37   Patrick   2021 Aug 14, 6:58pm  

What I'm saying is that I no longer trust any injections.

Our criminal "public health" officials may decide to put the clot-shot under a different label, "for you own good" you know.

Clearly anyone who trusts "public health" officials at this point is naive to a life-threatening degree

Here is one example. https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2018/125377s096lbl.pdf
And a government approved fact sheet about monoclonal antibodies.

It is true they are expensive. They are also not without risk and thus we would only give them to those who have a serious illness. Trump did get them (not the kind cited above but an experimental formulation for treating his Wuhan flu), and promised that everyone who needed them would also get them. But obviously that did not happen. Sometimes I think Trump has no idea what he is saying, we probably don’t have the capacity to create enough monoclonal antibodies to treat everyone with the coof. The good news is that your chances of a bad outcome if infected are small.

There are protocols online for treatment based on stage of infection/severity of disease.

So will they remove the emergency authorization for the jab now that there is a proven effective alternative treatment?

Any bets?

It didn't happen because of shenanigans, mate. It's been nonstop shenanigans. So few people got the treatment, just another crime to add to the list.

His administration even ordered half a million doses for use during the "pandemic" which, just like the hospital ships, barely saw use.

Was on my phone so didn't type much. I suspect they offered 'the good stuff' to your parents due to their age. As it should be. Nothing is ever 100% safe for everyone. One might have an allergic reaction to whatever the antibodies are injected with for example. But we make antibodies naturally. These are just synthetic, recognized by your body as human and target the virus or it's proteins.

Point is it's not a vaccine and not mRNA and doesn't contain or cause your body to make any spike protein. Instead these latch on to the virus and or spike protein to disable it and then other immune cells come in and turn the virus into food.

In the 90s a guy I worked with at a biotech company started his own antibody side business in his garage.

How do you know what's in it?

Just trust Fauci?
44   SoTex   2021 Aug 15, 12:33pm  

@WineHorror1 another way to do the same thing is to use:

https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/convalescent-plasma-therapy/about/pac-20486440

That's a natural way to use antibodies to fight covid. You just use the blood from someone who recovered that has antibodies in it. There just isn't a ton of that stuff around so there are people who make it synthetically.

I think they save the convalescent blood for the most at-risk people as well.

In the past I would have laughed at that but nowadays who the hell knows. Maybe they'll put the vax in our drinking water next.
47   SoTex   2021 Aug 15, 12:50pm  

Another way to explain it is the whole point of the vax is to get your body to make antibodies against the coof. It's not the antibodies that are bad. They are good.

Think of them like post-it notes. Imagine you're a virus and suddenly post-it notes start sticking to you all over. They get in your eyes. They get in your nose so you can't breath. Slows you the hell down.

Along comes a terminator who looks for things covered in post-it notes. That's how it knows what to target. It finds you and blows you away.

Follow up.
Order came in 2 weeks, well packaged, looks super legit. Apparently some packages have been getting intercepted by USPS, which shows them to be among the forces arrayed trying to KILL US. This package was marked "pharmaceuticals, personal use" and had no problem.
Somebody said "eew India drugs" and I pointed out that most drugs, or at least precursor chemicals, come from India. My household is not on any regular medications but my wife keeps and uses a steroid rescue inhaler (due to childhood asthma coming back with last years wildfire smoke season [I gotta get out of here]) which are costing us a hundred bucks with discount coupons. These guys are selling them for $15 so I might order some up.

The good news about Mail Order Pharma being common is that now the government no longer considers ordinary meds in the mail to be suspicious, and can't possibly open and inspect them all.
