I have no idea if it is just renamed and reclassed but I would not put it past them.

I understand they got $3.2 billion taxpayer dollars to develop this “new” drug while $70 million tanked on Remdezivir.

Merck is also doing the same thing with their own “new” anti-viral.

Hi

I am a South African, so very interested in hearing your opinions, and especially those of the experts  like Dr. van den Bosch on this video, posted recently on YouTube.





Thanks for helping.

Friedrichs_teeth, ivermectin has already been patented and is now off patent.  Pfizer wouldn’t be able to patent it again.  They would want patent protection for their new drug to eliminate competition.  The goal is to charge outrageously more money than the cost of production and rake in vast profits and that goal cannot be achieved without patent protection.  They would need to alter ivermectin in some manner to allow for patent protection.

I doubt they used ivermectin as a starting point for their new drug, but it’s possible.  There are countless antivirals that could be tested for efficacy against SARS-CoV-2.

I have a somewhat computer geeky question about the image you uploaded in post 1.  It has a “png” suffix but is actually a WEBP image.  Did you create that image or copy it from somewhere else?  My old computer isn’t up to the task of creating WEBP images.  If you don’t feel comfortable with answering the question, that’s OK.  Thanking you in advance.

    Silly me.

And there I was thinking that nothing worked against viruses and the only thing Big Pharma could offer was symptomatic relief.

Now where would I have got that idea?

There seems to be some circumstances where they can apply for a new patent when they find a new use for an old drug. https://www.currentpartnering.com/2010/02/09/drug-repurposing-and-repatenting/

I doubt they used ivermectin as a starting point for their new drug, but it’s possible.  There are countless antivirals that could be tested for efficacy against SARS-CoV-2.

They could use ivermectin and then add graphic oxide  to give it a magnetic experience. /s

Most of my images come from another site. I download them to my tablet and then upload them here. I will see if there is any way to convert them on the way.

Thanks Friedrichs_teeth for the reply about the WEBP image.  You don’t need to search for a way to convert the image.  I have an application that converts WEBP images.  It’s called https://www.xnview.com/en/xnconvert/.  I can’t create WEBP images.

Here is Dr. Kory’s very colorfully worded tweet mentioned in post #6.
