Ivermectin, Nobel Prize winning medication for animals AND humans for decades.

William C. Campbell delivered his Nobel Lecture on 7 December 2015 at Aula Medica, Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. It is well worth listening to, even though it is over 30 minutes long.

Ivermectin is now out of patent for many years, so there are no new studies funded by the medical establishment. While it is given to nearly all refugees from the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, there is no money to make in giving it as a prophylactic and cure for COVUD-19, even though there are multiple studies that it is effective.

The evidence since April is even more positive, yet there is no decision from CDC to approve its use for COVID, rather the opposite.

  1. Do you recognize the contradiction between the claim in your first caption (“there are no new studies funded by the medical establishment”) and the “ivmmeta” claim of (“50 trials… 26 randomized controlled trials”)?

    But just because two claims are contradictory, that doesn’t mean one of them is true and the other is false. It does mean they cannot both be true. But in this case they are both false.

    Contrary to the first claim, there are many studies of ivermectin in treatment protocols for Covid-19. Contrary to the second claim, the results of those studies are ambiguous. A majority of high-quality studies have found little or no detectable benefit.

    Here’s a review:

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34318930/
    Excerpt:

    “evidence on efficacy and safety of ivermectin for prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 treatment is conflicting.”

    There’s a LOT of misinformation being circulated about ivermectin, and that “ivmmeta” site is a major source of it. “Health Nerd” sent out an informative 39-part tweetstorm about it. Here’s the first tweet:

    Here’s a compilation:

    There is some evidence (far from conclusive) that ivermectin might have some benefit for Covid-19 patients, but anyone who tells you that you should take ivermectin instead of getting vaccinated is trying to kill you.

    What’s more, even if ivermectin (and/or some other therapy) were found to be very helpful for Covid-19 patients, vaccination would still be necessary, simply because immunity to the disease, by vaccination or by surviving an infection, limits its spread, and merely treating the disease cannot.

    Here are some good resources to learn about the vaccines:

  2. Thank you Dave. You are absolutely correct. I took in far too much territory in the term “Medical Establishment”. What I meant was a simple Pharmaceutical Establishment, which is a small subset of the medical establishment. Much of the medical establishment, such as the front Line Doctors, just to name one of many organizations, try to cure the patients rather than to create reliable returning customers. There is wonderful research done in research hospitals, and even among practitioners. This research, and the results thereof should carry equal weight with FDA and CDC, even though they do not contribute the same way (monetarily) to the organizations.
