      Ivermectin is effective for COVID-19: EUA and CMA

    I also think the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) in the US is the main driver for all this. Amount of pharma profits is the second. If you step back and look at it, it is mainly North America and Europe and then the unlucky Brazil that is being devastated by this pandemic. The western world was supposed to have the best health care – go figure.

    In Europe the EUA is called Conditional Marketing Authorization (CMA). The European Union’s European Medical Authority (EMA) webpages state the following:

    EMA’s CHMP may grant a conditional marketing authorisation for a medicine if it finds that all of the following criteria are met:

    the benefit-risk balance of the medicine is positive;
    it is likely that the applicant will be able to provide comprehensive data post-authorisation;
    the medicine fulfils an unmet medical need;
    the benefit of the medicine’s immediate availability to patients is greater than the risk inherent in the fact that additional data are still required.
    Conditional marketing authorisations are valid for one year and can be renewed annually.

    In my mind this is society’s own goal. Regulations are text. Just change them. I do not think there is anybody, who would want to hinder EUAs/CMAs of new treatments. We need all possible tools to be available to whoever wants them.

    Right now it would be important that EUA/CMA trap would not be in the way of using repurpose drugs.

      Ivermectin is effective for COVID-19: Haiti

    Source dr1 January 12, 2021:

    “Meanwhile, mass parasite programs with Ivermectin for years have been the norm in Haiti. The practice could explain why the low death toll and milder cases in the western side of Hispaniola. Haiti reports 10,272 cases as of the 10 January 2021 report, compared to 183,282 cases in the Dominican Republic. … Nightclubs and restaurants are open, music festivals are being held.” Haiti has population of 11.5 million (2018).

    “In El Salvador, the Central American country with the best record in the region, the government gives out Covid-19 kits that include Ivermectin to all who test positive for ambulatory care. El Salvador has only 4,121 active cases (population 6.5 million) and the DR has 41,967 active cases (population 10.5 million).”

    Haiti 10,000 Covid-19 cases, the DR 183,000; Could mass parasite campaigns with Ivermectin have made the difference?

      Ivermectin is effective for COVID-19: Unitaid

    Unitaid statement regarding Ivermectin as a potential COVID-19 treatment

    February 2nd, 2021

    https://unitaid.org/news-blog/unitaid-statement-regarding-ivermectin-as-a-potential-covid-19-treatment/#en

    Ivermectin, as well as other repurposed products, has been suggested as a potential treatment for COVID-19 based on preliminary promising evidence – further data is needed to support a definitive recommendation either for or against its use for COVID-19.

    In the coming weeks, results from additional trials in other countries are expected, and an in-depth analysis will be conducted by WHO to determine next steps, including the potential need for further targeted clinical studies.
