Ivermectin NOW OK To Prescribe for Chinese Wuhan Covid


NIH Revises Treatment Guidelines for Ivermectin for the Treatment of COVID-19

Ivermectin is Now a Therapeutic Option for Doctors & Prescribers

NEW YORK, N.Y. — JANUARY 15, 2021

One week after Dr. Paul Marik and Dr. Pierre Kory—founding members of the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC)— along with Dr. Andrew Hill, researcher and consultant to the World Health Organization (WHO), presented their data before the NIH Treatment Guidelines Panel, the NIH has upgraded their recommendation on ivermectin, making it an option for use in COVID-19.

This new designation upgraded the status of ivermectin from “against” to “neither for nor against”, which is the same recommendation given to monoclonal antibodies and convalescent plasma, both widely used across the nation.

By no longer recommending against ivermectin use, doctors should feel more open in prescribing ivermectin as another therapeutic option for the treatment of COVID-19. This may clear its path towards FDA emergency use approval.

“ Ivermectin is one of the world’s safest, cheapest and most widely available drugs,” noted Dr. Kory, President of the FLCCC Alliance. “The studies we presented to the NIH revealed high levels of statistical significance showing large magnitude benefit in transmission rates, need for hospitalization, and death. What’s more, the totality of trials data supporting ivermectin is without precedent.”

In its ivermectin recommendations update, the NIH also indicated they will continue to review additional trials as they are released. “We are encouraged that the NIH has moved off of its August 27 recommendation against the use of ivermectin for COVID-19,” continued Kory. “That recommendation was made just as the numerous compelling studies for ivermectin were starting to roll in. New studies are still coming in, and as they are received and reviewed, it is our hope that the NIH’s recommendation for the use of ivermectin will be the strongest recommendation for its use as possible.”

Current meta-analyses of studies of ivermectin from around the world show a compelling trend towards the drug’s potent benefits against SARS-CoV-2. Ivermectin, developed in 1975, led to the eradication of a “pandemic” of parasitic diseases across multiple continents and earned the 2015 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for its discoverers, Dr. William Campbell and Dr. Ōmura Satoshi.

In related news, the manuscript written by the FLCCC has been accepted for publication, following a rigorous peer review, in Frontiers in Pharmacology. The full paper will be published within the next couple of weeks, however the preview can be found here.

    Add this to the list of things that President Trump couldn’t say or do; but “President” Joe Biden and/or his sycophants can. Now “MSM” tell me, again, this *wasn’t* political? /sarc

    Hopefully things will start improving on the medical front, at least as far as the scamdemic goes. As far as the economy goes, not so much.

    I wonder if that’s taking into account all of the new citizens Democrat voters they’re about to import? I wonder if that’s his version of Obama’s “Those jobs aren’t coming back.”

    Here’s a condensed reposting of a comment on ivermectin by:
    Ron Clutz | December 21, 2020 at 10:12 am | Reply
    He in turn quotes from an article that I link to at the end:
    An example is Dominican Republic, small island nation depending on tourism, so not isolated. Dr. Redondo:

    “After eight months of active clinical observation and attending about 7 thousand patients of Covid-19 in three medical centers located in Puerto Plata, La Romana, and Punta Cana, Dr. José Natalio Redondo revealed that 99.3% of the symptomatic patients who received care in his emergency services, including the use of Ivermectin, managed to recover in the first five days of recorded symptoms.”

    He added that “in a therapeutic format duly tested over the years, infections have always been cured faster and leave fewer sequelae if antimicrobial treatment is applied as early as possible since this allows the use of lower doses of the selected drugs. This has been one of the dogmas that remain in our daily medical practice.”

    “We realized that the war was being lost because of the obsession of large groups, agencies, and companies linked to research and production of drugs, to focus their interest almost exclusively on the management of critical patients.

    “Our results were immediate; the use of Ivermectin, together with Azithromycin and Zinc (plus the usual vitamins that tend to increase the immune response of individuals) produced an impressive variation in the course of the disease;

  7. A C Osborn says:

    There are also a couple of new studies on Colchicin that show it’s effectiveness, not as good as HCQ & Ivermectin, but about 44% reductions in ICU and deaths etc.

    Also a couple of new drugs

    Aplidin or Plitidepsin

    Betadine nose drops (1% Iodine)

    In the UK you only hear about Vaccines, no enthusiasm for drugs other than Dexamethasone which the Oxford Recovery recommended (the same study that tested HCQ at 6 times the recommended maximum dose).
    But we have had 111,000 deaths and we still have 30,000 in hospital, Vaccines wouldn’t have helped those that died and won’t help those in hospital or those that catch it before vaccination.
    There is no national outcry duee to the mass media knocking HCQ and pushing Vaccines, only the Daily Mail online regularly prints information on drugs that work.

  8. p.g.sharrow says:

    One must understand the need of Dr Fauci and Company to force the rapid adoption of his new technology for viral immunity. There are vast organizations of Bureaucrats that stand in the way of adoption of new medical practices. It takes vast amounts of money and time to get them approved. What was need was an Emergency to side step those protocols. We are now in the middle of Dr Fauci’s Grand Experiment, forced inoculation of a part of the worlds population, Guinea pigs for a gene manipulation that might make all humans that carry it immune to Corona virus, If a few hundred thousand die or become sterile is no big thing among billions. This technology has resulted in poor to bad outcomes in animal based studies

    To get Emergency wavers there must be no other viable treatment, so it was important that no other acceptable treatments be available. Just think about Dr Fauci’s behavior and pronouncements over the last 16 months about about this retaliativly minor cold/flue. To me the approved treatments were worse then the disease. While known, disapproved treatments and preventives were cheap and effective. I smell deliberate socialist con, where they all get what they want at the expense of the peoples freedom and their lives. But to a socialist killing or damaging the lives of a few million is well worth the cost. ..pg ..

  9. YMMV says:

    Fauci’s ownership of Big Pharma stock required that there be no treatments, no cures, until the vaccine was ready. Therefore, no HCQ, no IVM, no advice about Vitamin D and sunshine. In other words, no public health response, only Big Pharma medicine. No serious attempt to save lives; it is mass murder.

    Recently many proposed treatments are popping up. Interferon lambda. “deadly carrot”. Colchicine (for gout). CBD.

    And mouth wash and gargle is back in the news. Even gargling with water may work.

    And the evidence for how hugely important Vitamin D is keeps piling up.

    Finally, indoor air quality in modern buildings sealed for heating efficiency is bad. Open the windows and get a portable HEPA air filter.

    It’s not Ivermectin, but this guy claims to have made his own vaccine at home.

  12. Roger Knights says:

    I suspect that ivermectin will move to the Approved category by the NIH by the end of the year, in order to:

    * Treat the unvaccinated who arrive at hospitals with symptoms—and also to the vaccinated who have nevertheless developed symptoms. (This might be from 3% to 15% of the vaccinated, depending on the vaccine.) (The unvaccinated might include children, if a decision had been made not to vaccinate them.)
    * Proactively provide pills to the unvaccinated who refuse to be vaccinated, for them to use should symptoms developed. (In France half the population is refusing vaccinations. In the U.S. the ultimate percentage might be 20%.)
    * Proactively provide pills to persons who had an allergic reaction to their first flu shot.
    * Encourage doctors in undeveloped countries that lack an adequate health-care infrastructure—one that could conduct mass vaccinations—to administer pills to patients who show up with symptoms.

    Six months to a year after Approving ivermectin, it should be fairly clear if it’s effective and safe. If it is, the national medical bureaucracies and others that initially closed the gates to its use will be in an embarrassing position. (So, foreseeing that, maybe those gatekeepers will double down and NOT approve it!)

    Nah, they will just proclaim how great they were to “discover” this treatment through their careful clinical study….

    One of those needless deaths was my brother. They sent him home with no Covid home care therapeutics until he was sick enough to be hospitalized.
    After 22 horrific days, he died on a ventilator.

    I watched an interview (link below) with the great Australian Dr. Paul Borody (of peptic ulcer, h. Pylori fame) where he discussed the ethical issues regarding the need for more rigorous double blind RCTs, time consuming peer reviews, and the like. He said,among other things, that since we are in the middle of a pandemic and there are no short term alternatives that work anywhere near how IVM performs against all phases of COVID19, that it is an ethically charged issue, after all, would you want your family member in an ICU to be in the placebo group? Update: Here is part 1 of his interview..You can find part 2 immediately after watching it. https://youtu.be/PyA_FlPCWUA

    9 million ivermectin-treated people in Papua New Guinea, only 9 covid deaths. Is 9 million people enough of a sample for the NIH?

    I think accidentally a cure / preventative for the common cold has been found here . That’s a corona virus. It’s a medical holy grail. No one seems to have noticed.

  16. David A says:

    None of the benefits of Ivermectin, HCQ, Zinc, fresh air and Sunshine, and vitamin D were unknown eight or nine months ago. The anti viral benefits of Zinc, vitamin D, and sunshine have long been known, as with HCQ. President Trump suggested all four of those very early. Not certain about the history of Ivermectin, but I think that was also well known.

    In all sincerity I can think of nothing else to call the one world statist government actions and non-actions anything other then democide and economic sabatoge.

  17. cdquarles says:

    Do you mean common cold the syndrome or common cold the specific disease. If you mean the specific disease, that one is caused by rhinoviruses and rhinoviruses only. Rhinoviruses are offshoots of picornaviruses and picornaviruses are offshoots of enteroviruses. Different virus family. That said, the true common cold is very mild and basically doesn’t need treatment, unless you are on immunosuppressants; which is why it is among the most successful viral parasites.

    Now, common cold the syndrome has some dozen or so different virus families involved and hundreds to thousands of strains, only one of the families is some corona viruses. So, yes, if we could get a very cheap general anti-viral plus get people to address vitamin and mineral deficiencies that only some of us have; that would be a good thing.

  18. E.M.Smith says:

    @David A:

    As I’ve said before: It is a very short walk from “never let a disaster go to waste” to “create disasters as needed for effect”. IMHO TPTB have crossed that Rubicon.

    It is absolutely clear that there is massive coordination on the Progressive Left & DNC side to make this as scary as possible “for effect”. Then look at the results. Something like 20% richer in the Swamp Class, high value urban properties values in decline so that they can be bought up cheap, massive increase in control of the population at large, Big Pharma collecting $Billions, Trump out of the way, groundwork for Great Reset in place, and somewhere north of $4 TRILLION of “stimulus” on the national credit card with most of it going to the Swamp Dwellers either directly or via their NGOs and Graft Of “Foreign Aid”.

    All over something where most people have less than a “common cold” and those that do get very sick are in a spectrum from The Flu to Pneumonia (that collectively kill more each year…)

    The only reasonable answer that fits is “exploited for effect” along with “amplified at every turn”.

    Frankly, the massive effort to SUPPRESS every single simple thing that helps or cures the disease is a giant flashing neon sign saying “Murderous Corruption Here!!!”.

  19. p.g.sharrow says:

    Interesting. I normally catch every virus that makes the rounds, after a week or so it is gone. Late last December I caught something that was moderate but just would not go away. In-spite of vitamins and all, it took into June to be rid of it.
    Don’t know what it was, not tested, but now into February and no other flu or colds to report. Don’t know if that is lack of exposure or being maxed out on vitamins.
    I’m glad we got warnings here before China, WHO, the CDC and Fauci, covered everything up with lies and bad information….pg

  20. The True Nolan says:

    @E.M.: “The only reasonable answer that fits is “exploited for effect” along with “amplified at every turn”. Frankly, the massive effort to SUPPRESS every single simple thing that helps or cures the disease is a giant flashing neon sign saying “Murderous Corruption Here!!!”.

    It would be pleasant to see some rational reason to disagree with you, but there is none. Certainly in the first couple of months the information available to the average person was still too sketchy to make a good decision on the nature of this “pandemic”. Now? It looks clear to me and I see the same picture you do.

    Over the years, there have been many variations on the cartoon which shows a bunch of lemmings hurling themselves off a cliff (I know, fake…) with one lone lemming standing up yelling, “STOP! IT’S A MISTAKE!” Somehow, the humor of that cartoon seems a bit strained now.

    Yup. OTOH, an ever increasing number of folks will be like me and the spouse. She sewed up a few masks (uses HEPA filter chunk from vacuum bag) and we use them to get past “administrative points”. So no money there. Then, per the vaccine, um, nope. Not going that path until a year or 2 have passed and we know the long term damage / effects. So not getting money from me for that either.

    But they will still get their $Billions from global governments…
