Surgical Outcomes Collaborative
You’ll recognise Sapan Desai and another name on the paper here.
‘This was an international, multicenter, observational propensity-score matched case-controlled study using prospectively collected data on patients diagnosed with COVID-19 between January 1, 2020 and March 31, 2020. De-identified data on patients and their outcome were obtained from a registry (Surgical Outcomes Collaborative, Surgisphere Corporation, Chicago, IL). This international research collaboration is comprised of hospitals located throughout the world. The registry ensures compliance with the FDA’s guidance on Real-World Evidence. Real-world data (RWD) is collected through automated data transfers that capture 100% of the data from each healthcare entity at regular, predetermined intervals, thus reducing the impact of selection bias.’
‘The search for effective antiviral therapy targeted against SARS-CoV-2 is ongoing and while several candidates have emerged, none have convincingly demonstrated benefit…’
‘A single arm study of compassionate basis use of Remdesivir in severe COVID-19 has been completed but lack of a control group makes it difficult to reach any conclusions. Another candidate, hydroxychloroquine, has only been sparsely studied and mostly uncontrolled data have surfaced thus far with safety concerns expressed…’
‘To these lists of candidates for treatment of COVID-19, we now add Ivermectin…’
Does this explain why he has so much data in such a short time? Is it legit?
The site seems offline. How much more suffering did this Sapan Desai cause?
Can he really thought he’d get away with it?
