    new IVM study published

The study is with 400 mcg/kg, single dose.

All still positive after study using PCR but significant reduction of viral load.

“All enrollments occurred within 72 h of onset of fever or cough”

Viral load typically peaks right around this time, so perhaps not unexpected there would be little difference in PCR tests going forward (PCR detects dead viral fragments as well as whole virus).

Glad to hear the IVM patients saw “a marked reduction of self-reported anosmia/hyposmia, a reduction of cough and a tendency to lower viral loads and lower IgG titers”
