Ivermectin no wonder drug according to latest trial results


Although not a single peer-reviewed clinical trial in a leading medical journal has shown that Ivermectin is effective against coronaviruses, four court cases have already been launched against the  SAHPRA to compel the regulator to make Ivermectin available for the treatment of Covid-19.

According to the results of a recent trial among 398 adults with mild Covid-19, published in Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) a five-day course of ivermectin compared with a placebo, did not significantly improve symptoms.

Ivermectin is not registered for human use in SA and is the focus of intense debate as well as court action about its accessibility, and whether it could successfully treat Covid-19. At present, it may only be used under urgent circumstances, and as part of a “controlled compassionate use” programme, while approval from SAHPRA is awaited.
