Emerging Evidence Demonstrating the Efficacy of Ivermectin
In its May-June edition, the American Journal of Therapeutics is calling for the global and systematic deployment of Ivermectin for the treatment and prevention of Covid-19.
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.
In summary, based on the totality of the trials and epidemiologic evidence presented in this review along with the preliminary findings of the Unitaid/WHO meta-analysis of treatment RCTs and the guideline recommendation from the international BIRD conference, ivermectin should be globally and systematically deployed in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.
That’s Dr. Kory paper.
Does anyone know the safety of ivermectin when used for Covid prevention (one dose every week, week after week). I think the understood safety of ivermectin is based on once in a while use.
IMHO it seems to harm intestinal flora and have a moderate conspitation effect similar to taking (other) antibiotics. It has a definite good antibiotic effect on the whole body, as Dr. Kory suggested in his last video. Sort of cures what ails you. Its not something one would particularly enjoy taking all the time beause of the digestive effects.
My dogs take it monthly. Certainly lots of animal safety data for ivermectin.
I agree taking it weekly forever seems ill advised. I think prophylactically if you are exposed or going on travel or as treatment IVM makes a lot of sense.
If I were a healthcare worker it would be a hard call, vaccine vs. ongoing IVM vs HCQ prophylaxis. There are lots of people that take HCQ on an ongoing basis for years.
Not a hint actually. But I am still on the old two-week prophylactic schedule. I’ve noticed no problems at all. No superpowers either though.
Very positive news article now out based on Dr Kory’s paper published on Weather.com — good to see it getting a higher news profile.
Also, a big study now published in Mexico showing that the Ivermectin-containing kit widely distributed to the public there reduced hospitalizations by 52-76%.
As Covid19Crusher comments,
“Mexico City data show that it has clobbered Covid-19. With ivermectin outpatient kits. Denying the scientific evidence with fallacious arguments to serve competing interests is morally compromised, lethal hypocrisy. Denying treatment to the sick is a crime against humanity.”

Denying the scientific evidence with fallacious arguments to serve competing interests is morally compromised, lethal hypocrisy.
Denying treatment to the sick is a crime against humanity.
