IVERMECTIN: another 'designed to fail' trial by the idiotic inept incompetent 'grant money' sold out academic scientists and doctors, who preferred to watch people die than treat and give this to us??
by Paul Alexander
These money hungry, grant chasing duplicitous people do gymnastics to make the drug seem bad like how they did to HCQ, hydroxychloroquine
They run studies designed to fail, with wrong patient populations, wrong dose, wrong time to administer e.g. cannot administer these antivirals late in disease course as the viral replication is already too advanced and severe lung trauma in place and even clotting.
The dose of 0.4mg/kg/day x 3 days is too low for the earlier more lethal strains e.g. study dine before OMICRON, likely was gamma and delta
Day 7 too late as the person is already deep in disease course and very sick, it is designed to work well early e.g. soon after symptom onset and positive etc.
Also patients had at least one risk factor so these were very ill
“We conducted a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, adaptive platform trial involving symptomatic SARS-CoV-2–positive adults recruited from 12 public health clinics in Brazil. Patients who had had symptoms of Covid-19 for up to 7 days and had at least one risk factor for disease progression were randomly assigned to receive ivermectin (400 μg per kilogram of body weight) once daily for 3 days or placebo. (The trial also involved other interventions that are not reported here.) The primary composite outcome was hospitalization due to Covid-19 within 28 days after randomization or an emergency department visit due to clinical worsening of Covid-19 (defined as the participant remaining under observation for >6 hours) within 28 days after randomization.”
In a prior designed to fail study, said IVM failed yet had a 70% reduction in risk of death or the like.
3 day course is insufficient and the experts and their protocol shows this
I will examine the methods shortly and write about it.
But this study is garbage as usual. Just like how they tried to damage HCQ. Wrong doses, wrong time, wrong patients etc. With IVM, damaged it by saying ‘horse paste’ etc.
