Ivermectin – the rejected wonder drug

Why is there so much resistance, disinformation, and black propaganda against this affordable wonder drug?

Ivermectin is primarily a dewormer and anti-parasitic, but why should it be banned from public consumption to treat CCP Virus or COVID-19 if it has clinical proof of effectivity and has been peer-reviewed?

Since 2012, Ivermectin clinically demonstrated antiviral properties and was proven effective against Zika, Dengue, Herpes, HIV, Influenza, and Bird Flu.

There is major resistance to its use primarily since there is no longer a patent royalty for this type of medicine. What does it mean? Companies cannot gain much financial return from it. One word – GREED.

A lot of critics expressed concern about the safety of Ivermectin. The funny thing is the treatments and medications used presently on CCP Virus or COVID-19 mostly have less than a year of studies, while Ivermectin is backed by 40 years of safe use and clinical administration.

Fenbendazole, another animal dewormer, received great rejection previously after it was found that it can cure “Cancer”. Imagine the financial losses that will be incurred if a cheap pill alternative replaces the standard therapies.

As per the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine “Meta-analyses based on 18 randomized controlled treatment trials of ivermectin in COVID-19 have found large, statistically significant reductions in mortality, time to clinical recovery, and time to viral clearance. Furthermore, results from numerous controlled prophylaxis trials report significantly reduced risks of contracting COVID-19 with the regular use of ivermectin. Finally, the many examples of ivermectin distribution campaigns leading to rapid population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality indicate that an oral agent effective in all phases of COVID-19 has been identified.”
 

The evidence base for Ivermectin against COVID-19

(As per National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine) To date, the efficacy of Ivermectin in COVID-19 has been supported by the following:

  • Since 2012, multiple in vitro studies have demonstrated that Ivermectin inhibits the replication of many viruses, including influenza, Zika, Dengue, and others
  • Ivermectin inhibits SARS-CoV-2 replication and binding to host tissue through several observed and proposed mechanisms
  • Ivermectin has potent anti-inflammatory properties with in vitro data demonstrating profound inhibition of both cytokine production and transcription of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), the most potent mediator of inflammation.
  • Ivermectin significantly diminishes viral load and protects against organ damage in multiple animal models when infected with SARS-CoV-2 or similar coronaviruses.
  • Ivermectin prevents transmission and development of COVID-19 disease in those exposed to infected patients.
  • Ivermectin hastens recovery and prevents deterioration in patients with mild to moderate disease treated early after symptoms.
  • Ivermectin hastens recovery and avoidance of ICU admission and death in hospitalized patients.
  • Ivermectin reduces mortality in critically ill patients with COVID-19.
  • Ivermectin leads to temporally associated reductions in the case of fatality rates in regions after ivermectin distribution campaigns.
  • The safety, availability, and cost of ivermectin are nearly unparalleled given its low incidence of important drug interactions along with only mild and rare side effects observed in almost 40 years of use and billions of doses administered.
  • The World Health Organization has long included ivermectin on its “List of Essential Medicines.”

The clinical study and meta-analytic evidence to the efficacy of Ivermectin as treatment and prophylaxis against COVID-19 are simply overwhelming, to say the least.

In relation to this topic, the Indian Bar Association threatened to sentence WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan to capital punishment or death due to her misinformation on Ivermectin which influenced the State of Tamil Nadu to withdraw Ivermectin from the protocol. As we all know, India was tragically hit by severe Covid-19 fatalities.
