Finally, our Chronic Disease Support webinar on Ivermectin is published.

Here are some references that give different views on this drug. Please make your own decision on its use. However, the main purpose of Ivermectin is anti-parasitic. Consider this from the CDC published on May 8, 2014:


Summary:

Most people think parasitic diseases occur in poor and developing countries, or are infections they might pick up on a trip to a foreign country. However, parasitic infections also occur in the United States, and in some cases affect millions of people. Often they can go unnoticed, with few symptoms. But many times the infections cause serious illnesses, including seizures, blindness, pregnancy complications, heart failure, and even death. Anyone—regardless of race or economic status—can become infected.

Highlights

• Ivermectin is an inhibitor of the COVID-19 causative virus (SARS-CoV-2) in vitro.

• A single treatment able to effect ~5000-fold reduction in virus at 48 h in cell culture.

• Ivermectin is FDA-approved for parasitic infections, and therefore has a potential for repurposing.

• Ivermectin is widely available, due to its inclusion on the WHO model list of essential medicines.

In summary, there is equipoise. This is a term used in bioethics to define a situation in which there is reasonable doubt of whether a drug might be of use or not. Testing of ivermectin against SARS-CoV-2 in clinical trials is warranted.

This data is from the Frontline Critical Care doctors. Note they used hydroxychloroquine in conjunction with ivermectin in this study.


Marik and colleagues also described a randomized controlled trial of hospitalized patients that was done concurrently with the prophylaxis study. The trial included 400 patients split into four groups — two consisting of patients with mild to moderate illness and two consisting of severely ill patients. Patients with mild to moderate illness received one dose of ivermectin per day in addition to standard care or hydroxychloroquine twice a day in addition to standard care. The researchers determined that the rate of illness progression was significantly lower among those who received ivermectin (1% vs. 22%). Severely ill patients were assigned to receive standard care plus ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine. The researchers determined that in addition to lower rates of COVID-19 illness progression in the ivermectin group (4% vs. 30%), the ivermectin group also had a lower mortality rate (2% vs. 20%).

Wisdom is better than strength. Nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised. And his words are not heard. Words of the wise, spoken quietly, should be heard. Rather than the shout of a ruler of fools.
