COVID-Out double-blind randomized trial tested #metformin, ivermectin, or fluvoxamine for outpatient #COVID19. Secondary endpoint was incidence of Long Covid (PASC).
Volunteers were followed monthly to 10 mo.
Metformin 42% reduction in Long Covid.
medrxiv.org/content/10.110…
Incidence of Healthcare provider diagnosed long covid (PASC) was 42% less among those randomized to #metformin vs. matched placebo.

Hazard Ratio for Long Covid in the metformin group versus control was 0.58 (95% CI 0.38 to 0.88, P=0.009); Image
There was no benefit for those randomized to #ivermectin vs. matched placebo for reducing long covid and low-dose #fluvoxamine was not beneficial either for decreasing #longcovid. ImageImage

1/ I'm approaching my 2 year anniversary of #LongCovid . I thought I would share my journey to recovery. This is not medical advice, just my story. If it helps one person it's worth it. I learned more from Twitter than anywhere else on this journey. #microclots #teamclots #pots
2/ I got COVID November 2020. Night 1 I had the most excruciating headache of my life. It felt as if someone was drilling into my forehead.  The headache dissipated after 2 days only to return day 13.  Initially I had some minor brain fog, like putting Ice Cream in the fridge etc
3/ I never lost my sense of taste or smell. I had a minor fever/body aches for 24 hours. Day 4, I started having heart rate issues. I would be resting on the couch and get up to walk to the bathroom and my heart rate would jump to 130.

Mars 2022 : l’OMS rejette la #Fluvoxamine mais recommande le #Molnupiravir de Merck, un traitement décrit comme une « pilule miracle » (BFMTV*).

Octobre 2022 : un essai randomisé sur 25,783 patients** (PANORAMIC) montre que le médicament n’a pas d’effet sur les hospis ou décès.

Je suis entrain de regarder l'avis qu'a produit le HSCP en 2018 pour recommander le Tamiflu (Gilead) contre la grippe...
👉🏼 Le Tamiflu ne réduit pas les hospis pour grippe en RCT : recommandé.
👉🏼 La #Fluvoxamine réduit les hospis pour COVID-19 en RCT : rejeté.
Étonnant, hein ?
Ps : Oseltamivir = Tamiflu.
Ah oui, au cas où ne saviez pas : Gilead était déjà de la partie lors de la grippe H1N1 en 2009 (en partenariat avec Roche). Déjà à l'époque les essais cliniques du médicament étaient assez spéciaux, et ce n'était pas complotiste de le dire.

Suite à une demande du chercheur Français @HoertelN, @ansm a refusé une autorisation d’utilisation pour la #Fluvoxamine contre #Covid dans un Cadre de Prescription Compassionnelle adaptée aux présomptions d’efficacité

Thread/ qualité du rapport Ansm

1/25
Contexte de la Fluvo en France:

D’après le dernier livre de @MartinBlachier, le milieu de @APHP a bloqué la recherche sur la #fluvoxamine
Pourtant @HoertelN y travaille.

Ils ont refusé de grands travaux de recherche.

2/
Puis après une très longue attente (nombreux rdv et félicitations) c’est un #ConseilScientifique très réseauté qui bloque pour que @ansm refuse une évaluation.

Apres un parcours du combattant, @HoertelN parvient enfin à faire évaluer sa demande.

Pourquoi c’est si dur ?

Plongée dans la sphère de désinformation complotiste.
Oui vous savez, celle où l'#IVM, l'#AZT, le #zinc et les #vitamines sont "portentiellement dangereuses", la #fluvoxamine "manque de preuves", mais où le #molnupiravir et les AC monoclonaux hors de prix sont "efficaces" !
Ah ces théories du complot, où ces complotistes de la HAS interdisent le bon vieux molnupiravir, et où l'Académie de Médecine et la Revue du Practicien recommandent la Vitamine D. Et que dire de ces pays corrompus comme l'Inde ou le Japon qui utilisent avec succès l'Ivermectine ?
Cette sphère d'une #bienveillance ... extrême

It’s crushing to hear such outcry abt overwhelmed hospitals knowing early, outpatient treatment would have significantly reduced that burden & saved countless lives.

That so few are talking about this is mind-blowing.

Not prioritizing early treatment was a grievous failure.
Ignoring benefit of effective cheap, repurposed drugs like #fluvoxamine that slash death rate is a crime that is clearly driven by the push to sell expensive, new patented drugs that aren’t out yet. All pts shld be able to try repurposed drugs that can save them.
In March 2021, @60Minutes did a piece abt the life-saving benefits of #fluvoxamine. What happened to it after that, you ask? @IDSAInfo recommended against its widespread use outside of clinical trials!

WHY AREN’T WE DEMANDING EARLY TREATMENT? They exist! nature.com/articles/d4158…

💡WOW—a cheap generic anti-depressant Fluvoxamine that costs just $4 reduced #COVID19 hospitalizations risk by ~30%… or from 16% in placebo to 11% in drug group. It even reduced mortality by 91%! #Fluvoxamine 🧵
2) Because it has already been approved by the FDA for mental health treatment, doctors can begin to prescribe it under certain parameters. The relatively modest cost means it could be highly beneficial in parts of the world with few resources. washingtonpost.com/science/2021/1…
3) The study, published Wednesday in the Lancet journal, found that giving high-risk covid-19 patients fluvoxamine — 100 mg twice daily for 10 days — early in their treatment reduced the need for hospitalization. thelancet.com/journals/langl…

🚨BREAKING: #Fluvoxamine—a cheap drug for #depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder—reduced the need for hospitalization among high-risk unvaccinated adults with #COVID19 in a large placebo-controlled randomized study.
apnews.com/article/db6060…
Among ~1,500 #COVID19 patients in #Brazil randomized for #fluvoxamine or placebo, #fluvoxamine reduced the need for hospitalization or prolonged medical observation by 1/3.

Encouraging results, but please still #GetVaccinated!

#coronavirus #SARSCoV2
google.com/amp/s/www.nyti…
Researchers tested #fluvoxamine because it reduces inflammation, likely blunting the downstream effects of #coronavirus infection.

Several earlier, smaller studies showed promising results, but none was as large or persuasive as this randomized placebo-controlled trial.

Interesting results from the #TOGETHER RCT of #fluvoxamine vs placebo in n=1497 high risk outpatients in 🇧🇷 with #COVID:
-people who received fluvoxamine were less likely to require extended ED visit or hospitalization (11% vs 16%, RR 0.68 CI 0.52-0.88)
thelancet.com/journals/langl…

TOGETHER was a large, multi-arm adaptive platform DB-RCT done in 🇧🇷 Brazil from June 2020 to Jan 2021.

Patients were identified after testing positive, stratified by age (>50 or <50 yo) & randomized to fluvoxamine 100 mg BID x 10 days vs placebo.

It builds upon 2 studies:
-an observational study in 🇫🇷 that found better outcomes among inpts already taking SSRIs

-a small n=152 RCT done in 🇺🇸 showing a decrease in clinical deterioration among outpts randomized to Fluvoxamine

#Fluvoxamine : nouvel espoir de traitement #COVID19 ?
preprint...on va attendre la review mais que peut on dire déjà
…8-4f9a-ae29-44e0df5347d5.filesusr.com/ugd/4e5c71_cc1…
Etude randomisée forte dose/placebo >700 par traitement
Effet sur un critère composite passage >6h aux urgences/hospitalisation
1/5⬇️
Le critère passage >6h aux urgence tire l'effet (OR 0,19; p<0,01) alors que l'effet sur hospitalisation n'est pas significatif (OR 0,79; p=0,17)
On va plus vite aux urgences avec la fluvoxamine (OR 0,19; p<0,01) mais moins longtemps ... il faut comprendre pourquoi

2/5⬇️
Pas d'effet sur le passage en réanimation et la mortalité
On peut discuter le manque de puissance mais alors discuter que la durée d'hospitalisation va dans l'autre sens non significatif non plus

Pas d'effet antiviral c'est réglé
