One last thing.🙂

I am just curious, how this tweet and the responses end up after a while?


I've witnessed this happen hundreds of times before. This is not a platform for nuance, in-depth research, or for insights. Treat it accordingly.

What did I tell you?🙂
And, here's that page that few, if any, would bother to visit. #NIH #Ivermectin

Let's talk about the Covid-Out trial that @BramanteCarolyn led from @umnmedschool as early treatment of #covid19.

This trial tested #metformin, #ivermectin, or low dose #fluvoxamine in a 3x2 factorial design where volunteers received 2 meds or placebos.
Why were these chosen?
In fall 2020 when the trial was designed (started Jan 1, 2021), here were the thoughts:
What was the primary endpoint?
- composite endpoint of death, hospitalization (for covid), ER visits (for covid), or self-reported hypoxia <94% per FDA criteria for severe #COVID19

The deaths, hospitalizations, and ER visits were all verified from medical records.

I agree.

But I would say the same of people who are absolutely certain that #ivermectin should not be used for COVID19 patients.

I am going a step further, and I have even created a self-evalution quiz to help you figure out if your condition is serious.
Score +1 if you think #pfizer is asking you to do this because they genuinely think it is in your best interest

+1 if you ever called IVM a "horse dewormer"

Harte Zeiten für die anthroposophische 'Medizin'. Ihre kosmischen Globuli aus Meteoritenstaub wirken nicht gegen Corona - und auch die Hoffnung auf #Ivermectin müssen sie nun aufgeben.

Auch in Kanada gibt es im Umfeld der #Waldorfschule und der anthroposophischen 'Medizin' Empfehlungen für das Pferde-Entwurmungsmittel #Ivermectin.

Da die Frage aufkam: Natürlich haben es die Steiner-Esoteriker aus der Anthroposophie auch mit #Eurythmie gegen #Covid19 probiert!
Der esoterischer Waldorfschulen-Tanz soll angeblich das Immunsystem stärken - Belege dafür fehlen.

NIH ACTIV-6 #ivermectin early #covid19 treatment results with 1591 randomized participants.
No difference in ER visits, hospitalizations, deaths (all numerically higher with IVM, but no statistical difference).
Time to recovery 11 vs 11.5 days. #idtwitter…
Hospitalizations or deaths: n=10 ivermectin vs n=9 placebo

ER visits / hospital / death n=32 IVM vs n=28 placebo
The symptom duration data are interesting. The trial is large enough that it can detect differences that are not clinically meaningful, but there are some subgroups that are interesting. Not conclusive as they are small, but hypothesis generating for verification in future arm

The largest trial of #ivermectin in early #COVID is now published @NEJM & the results are *NEGATIVE*

#TOGETHER randomized n=1358 outpatients with COVID in 🇧🇷 to IVM vs placebo. No difference in hospitalizations, mechanical ventilation, or death.…

A 🧵
I’ve written about the #TOGETHER trial before (see my fluvoxamine 🧵below)

Briefly #TOGETHER is a large double blind multi-arm platform RCT. Pretty much the 1st 🥇 gold standard for high quality medical research.

TOGETHER enrolled high risk people with COVID from 12 outpatient clinics in Brazil.

Patients could be enrolled up to 7 days after symptom onset (more on this later).

They were randomized to either placebo or to ivermectin 0.4mg/kg daily for 3 days. (Also more on dose later)

#Ivermectin is trending on Twitter again, so it’s time to drop some information.

I’m going to share a detailed thread on research I have read that proves ivermectin’s efficacy in stopping Covid. & why FDA, CDC, WHO, MSM have been working hard to discredit it.

We all watched the media claim ivermectin as a “horse dewormer”, despite Ivermectin being a Nobel prize winning medication because of it’s safe and effective uses in humans. WHO even labels it as an “essential medicine”…
Okay, it’s a parasite remover. What does it have to do with Covid? …Well ivermectin has been researched for its many uses for years.

Ivermectin became known for its antiviral properties, and it has been relevant due to its effect in inhibiting viral replication

Desinformationsverbreiterin #NaomiSeibt wirft mal wieder die Fake-News-Maschine an.

Diesmal wird in einem TV-Bericht über die COVID19-Erkrankung der Queen kurz das Medikament #Stromectol (enthält das Wurmkurmittel #Ivermectin) eingeblendet.

Ein Thread.
Hier erstmal der Ausschnitt aus der Sendung "A Current Affair", in dem Dr. Mukesh Haikerwal über die verschiedenen Behandlungsmöglichkeiten berichtet.

Ab 00:17 wird für einen kurzen Moment das Medikament Stromectol eingeblendet.
Viele werden es schon ahnen... das gezeigte Bildmaterial hatte nichts mit der Aussage von Dr. Haikerwal zu tun.

Solche Clips, auch B-Roll genannt, werden in Berichte eingefügt.

If you are interested in the #ivermectin story, you really should also be following @DarrellMello

Interesting fact:

IVM is NOT the main drug he uses

His is a very unique story because he has treated more COVID patients than the total number of clinical trial participants that were in the original #pfizer vax trial (because he consults via telemedicine)

Starts at minute 10:…

Dr Demello talks about also treating the rxn to the virus (blood clots) early - even if blood clots have not happened.

TBH, I don't understand all the medical stuff, but the important point is that it gives better results than IVM alone.

Der "Journalist" #MarkusHaintz ist Fan vom rechten Politiker Herbert "Ivermectin" #Kickl (FPÖ) aufgrund seiner Rede gegen die Impflicht.

Darum ein paar "Highlights" von Kickl. Image
Herbert Kickl wurde erst vor wenigen Tagen von der jüdischen Hochschülerschaft wg. Verharmlosung des Nationalsozialismus angezeigt.

Er verglich die Testpflicht an Schulen mit der Verfolgung, Vertreibung und Ermordung jüdischer Schüler.…
Gerade wurde auch die parlamentarische Immunität von Kickl aufgehoben um ein Verfahren gegen ihn fortzusetzen.…

Updated WHO severe COVID treatment guidelines

🟢Steroid (#Dexamethasone)
🟢IL6 blocker (#Toci) or 🟢JAKi (#Baricitinib)
🟠±mAb in seronegative people

NOT recommended

Lots to discuss, a🧵
Remdesivir (RDV) is in the “We suggest no remdesivir” category.
At some level, this isn’t too surprising & is old news.
Despite initial hype, RDV never moved the needle much on patient centered outcomes (risk of mortality or requiring IMV) & many of us had stopped using it.
In #ACTT1 RDV did improve outcomes on an ordinal scale, but the effect was modest. It shortened time to clinical improvement but not hospital LOS (patients stayed in the hospital longer to receive it).
RDV did NOT improve mortality or risk of IMV.

#1756 - John Abramson · The Joe Rogan Experience

Listening today. John Abramson is interacting intelligently and objectively with Joe.

I like that Joe is taking more time to express himself. before asking his questions. And, then he listens.…
An important question answered is how a drug company owns the information related to the drug trial.

Only the drug company holds the data.

This brave doctor blocked me precisely after 2 tweets. All I had to do was criticize #Malone, based on undeniable evidence.
The fellow next to him, to his right, is already suspended from Twitter.

He answered none of my questions. He was so poor in his understanding, it's unimaginable how he could be an MD.

1/5- Après avoir dit sur @franceinter qu'il n'y a rien d'antiviral dans le trio #HCQ #VitD #Ivermectin, je vais encore recevoir moult messages de vociférations.
Je vérifie régulièrement, et j'aimerais y croire, mais...non. Désolé. Mais: Ivermectin=anti-inflammatoire (cf dessous)
2/5- Alors je regarde tout de même si ces molécules se lieraient significativement à une cible virale ou cellulaire, et là, c'est incroyable: Avec la modélisation moléculaire, on peut arriver à TOUT démontrer sans aucune le publier dans un journal torchon.
3/5- Utilisant la modélisation moléculaire depuis >20 ans, et comparant les résultats expérimentaux avec, je me permet de préciser: elle n'a AUCUNE valeur si elle n'est pas validée par une expérience bien réelle, de biochimie/biophysique.

Until a couple of weeks ago, I had never spoken directly Dr. George Fareed (@GeorgeFareed2), even though I had worked up the statistics and paper for Dr. Tyson's and Dr. Fareed's patients at All Valley Urgent Care in SoCal.
I had talked with Brian Tyson numerous times, interviewed with him once, and met him in San Juan. But never George.…
When you talk to George (I'll call him that), you realize how gentle and sincere the man is. There is no mistaking it. And while working on the new Tyson/Fareed book, I got to see George's collection of video testimonials. It's...incredible.

There goes Twitter, erasing another dedicated doctor.

It was just too inconvenient having one around whose patients treated early numbered 7,000 with 4 hospitalizations and 0 deaths.

#hydroxychloroquine #ivermectin
That's Dr. Brian Tyson, if you didn't know already.
And...the book that tells the story.…

1/ It wasn't a conspiracy theory, it was a #CrimeAgainstHumanity...and it came from Florida. 🧵

The GOP started lying about COVID when Trump called it a "hoax". THAT lie has cost hundreds of thousands of American🇺🇲 lives. It also made them and their friends billions $$.

2/ Trump said it was a hoax on Feb 27, 2020. Community transmission was being confirmed in multiple cities in the US. Around the world, case numbers were increasing exponentially everywhere one was found, and economic disruptions began roiling global financial markets.

3/ Four Republican Senators on the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee who knew how bad the virus was, sold their stocks ahead of a market collapse which saw equity valuations plunge up to 40% worldwide in a matter of weeks.

Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) is a human gamma herpesvirus. It is known to have infected and generally become latent in more than 90% of the global population [7], including more than 95% of healthy adults [8]. #EBV…
"A variety of clinical manifestations have been associated with EBV reactivation. These include fatigue, psychoneurosis/brain fog, sleep disturbance, arthralgia, pharyngitis, myalgia, headaches, fever, gastrointestinal complaints, and various skin rashes." #EBV
"We found that 66.7% (20/30) of long-term long COVID subjects versus 10% (2/20) of long-term control subjects were positive for EBV reactivation based on positive titers for EBV EA-D IgG or EBV VCA IgM." #EBV / #LongCovid

That was painfully close to where I spent my teen years. Also, I'm really disturbed to see a @McLarenHealth neurosurgeon spreading #COVID19 misinformation like this.
Note the logo of the #COVID19 minimizing, #ivermectin-pushing group America's Frontline Doctors in the upper lefthand corner.
Yes, Dr. Avery Jackson is promoting #COVID19 misinformation. Lest you doubt me, here's him invoking Nuremberg, saying that #CovidVaccine is killing people.…

1/ THREAD - Countries with annual ivermectin treatment showing extremely low cases & deaths despite having very low vaccination rates.

IVM has been used to treat River Blindness via the African Program for Onchocerciasis Control (APOC) & includes 19 countries in Africa...
2/ The APOC program started in 1995 and people were given 1 (most countries) or 2 doses of Ivermectin per year. The APOC program closed at the end of 2015 and transitioned to the Community Directed Treatment with Ivermectin (CDTI) program. In 2017 more than 145M ppl were treated.
3/ I have compared 3 sets of countries. APOC countries, the rest of Africa and the most vaccinated countries + USA, UK and Canada.


This first set of charts shows Cumulative Cases / Million.
