Dr Tess Lawrie Ivermectin Meta-Analysis: UK-based Meta Analysis Suggests Ivermectin A Key Weapon in the War Against COVID-19
This study published in the peer-reviewed American Journal of Therapeutics suggests a “moderate-certainty evidence” indicating a substantial reduction in COVID-19 related deaths would be a feasible outcome with the use of ivermectin. The study results mirror what TrialSite’s observed in study after study from Bangladesh and India to Peru and Argentina; from Israel and Nigeria to the ICON study in South Florida and population-wide public health initiatives using ivermectin from Mexico City to Uttar Pradesh, India, that there’s now overwhelming data that this generic drug used as an antiparasitic treatment should be considered on at least an emergency basis as another tool in the medical tool chest to fight SARS-CoV-2.
Dr. Lawrie shared with the TrialSite:
“We are overjoyed to have the product of months of hard work finally published! And what a wonderful author team – it’s been an honour to work with people of such high integrity, who maintained a spirit of hope and optimism in spite of all the difficulties with which we have been confronted. Thank you for not giving up! Now the authorities have all the evidence they need to approve ivermectin immediately.”
The preprint of this review received no funding. This updated version was funded by the crowdfunding initiative.
TrialSite’s Coverage of Ivermectin
TrialSite’s been one of the few, if not the only, media platforms to consistently chronicle ivermectin-based research since the initial findings of a group of scientists last April at Monash University that the generic drug absolutely destroys the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen in a lab setting. TrialSite chronicled the organization, conduct, and conclusion of dozens of studies since then. The platform’s only been rivaled by the anonymously owned platform that tracks every ivermectin study, now at 60. One of the key authors here, Dr. Tess Lawrie, has been a guest on the TrialSite podcast and is a frequent contributor.
