Ivermectin overview - research, studies treatments and articles

Ivermectin is an existing medication that has been traditionally used o treat infections in the body that are caused by many types of parasite infestations. 

Ivermectin is currently being investigated for SARS-CoV2, which is the virus that causes COVID-19. There have been considerable trials that have shown significant promise. So far, trials have shown Ivermectin has reduced the number of cell- associated viral DNA by 99.9% within 24 hours. This page follows the Ivermectin’s journey in the possible use against COVID-19

The avermectin family of compounds was discovered in 1970, along the east coast of Japan. Ivermectin was introduced in 1981. Half of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded jointly to Campbell and Omura for Discovering avermectin. 

This data is constantly being added to, so please check in for updates. 

Despite an overwhelming amount of politicised reporting, with a strong trend toward vaccines above all else, there continues to be a growing database of solid evidence that if COVID-19 is treated early with HCQ with Zinc and other compounds,  or Ivermectin.  

Clinical trials are underway, all around the world, and vaccines are in development. Any form of treatment that buys us time and keeps our loved ones alive is worth consideration. To ignore science that shows efficacy against COVID-19, for political gain, is considered by some to be a crime against humanity.

Zimbabwe Physician Reports Ivermectin Correlated with Dramatic Decrease in Cases & Deaths

The Chloroquine Wars Part XVII – Why the Story About India’s April COVID-19 Spike is All Wrong

So, what’s different between Maharashtra and Delhi with respect to the rest of India and South Asia? Instead of relying on HCQ and IVM, many doctors and health officials in Maharashtra and Delhi pushed the expensive and profitable remdesivir drug. Due to its cost and recommended time of usage, remdesivir is not used either as a prophylaxis or for early outpatient treatment. And unlike the cheap and easy-to-produce HCQ and IVM, remdesivir is difficult to replace when it runs out.

Doctor’s Advice on Early Treatment for COVID-19

Every viral illness starts that way. The more it’s allowed to progress, the more it takes over the cells and replicates itself. That’s why this virus absolutely had to be treated early to prevent those damages. Primarily what has killed people with COVID is a delay to treatment, and allowing the exaggerating inflammatory response and blood clotting response to take hold in the body.

Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance Statement – Weak Guidance on Ivermectin from the World Health Organization (WHO)

“I am deeply troubled that the WHO made this hasty decision on guidance before reviewing all available data,” said Pierre Kory, MD, MPH, president and chief medical officer of the FLCCC.
“Their recommendation ignores the evidence, creates more controversy, and will only lead to continuing suffering and death from COVID-19. There are now over 24 randomized trials results
that have been reported to the Unitaid/WHO team yet todays guidance was inexcusably based on a faulty analysis of just 16 of the available trials. Further, these erroneous findings directly conflict
with numerous other peer-reviewed expert analyses that have found the data overwhelmingly demonstrates that ivermectin saves lives from COVID-19. There is no reason not to recommend it
for everyone as a safe drug for prevention and treatment.”
