The video also mentions another antimalarial that is also looking like it works. Tefenoquine. More on that below, but first, Ivermectin.
In use in Bangladesh, Ivermectin with Doxycyline given early has 98% success at curing Chinese Wuhan Covid-19 in over 400 patients in 4 to 14 days. Some with comorbidities did go to ICU and 2 died (even with remdesivir and serum treatments).
They have started a double blind trial that ought to complete in about a month.
India has approved Itolizumab & Tocilizumab for covid-19 use. Another case of an immune suppressing arthritis drug and an anti malarial. Looks like a pattern to me. But an Italian study found Tocilizumab didn’t benefit. Maybe more folks discovering that real morbidity is under 1% (so given early means your sample is biased to more low symptom folks) or maybe more poorly done trials to make Gilead happy, packed with folks about to die and dosed wrong? Who knows….
I’ll be adding some Ivermectin links in comnents below as I work through my bookmarks.
