L’Ivermectina works against the SARS-CoV-2 (commonly known as Covid-19). To say it is not a bizarre group of conspiracy theorists nor some no-vax, but one study published in the authoritative American Journal of Therapeutics, a historic scientific journal that deals with pharmacology and therapies that now recommends the use of the famous ultra-cheap anthelmintic.
The cures with ivermectina are the main way to fight the pandemic in many countries of the world: data coming from Zimbabwe, India, Peru, Argentina and Mexico are particularly emblematic of how much this drug can help fight the virus at all stages of the disease.
The study onIvermectina shows that this drug inhibits the replication and binding of the SARS-CoV-2 with the host tissue through several mechanisms. It also prevents the transmission and development of the disease in people exposed to infected patients and leads to reductions in the mortality rate in the Regions where there have been drug distribution campaigns, which boasts over 40 years of use and billions of doses administered and is therefore established that it does not have any kind of serious side effect.
“Based on the totality of the studies and epidemiological evidence presented in this work, ivermectin should be used globally and systematically in the prevention and treatment of Covid-19 “ conclude the study authors, who are Pierre Kory, chief of the intensive care unit of UW Health University Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin; Joseph Varon, chief of the intensive care unit of the United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, Texas (the ward with the lowest number of Covid deaths in the US since the beginning of the pandemic); Gianfranco Umberto Meduri, researcher and teacher of medicine in the Department of Medical Sciences of the University of Tennessee; Jose Iglesias placeholder image, professor of medicine at the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine at Seton Hall in Nutley, New Jersey; And Paul E. Marik, a highly influential South African scientist known throughout the world for his studies and specializations on the lungs, head of the division of pulmonology and intensive care at the Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Virginia. All the doctors who signed the study are at the forefront, in their facilities, in the fight against the pandemic.
L’Ivermectina is a semi-synthetic drug commonly used to treat lice, scabies, ascariasis and other parasitic infections, which is also very cheap and readily available in large quantities.
In recent months, as already happened for thehydroxychloroquine, this drug and its use have been targeted by real campaigns aimed at diminishing its value, deceiving many states (including Italy) that have decided not to use it. Even facebook and youtube have censored many contents on Ivermectin, labeling them as “medical misinformation“.
Despite the numerous studies that for many months have already demonstrated the efficacy of Ivermectin against Covid-19, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended not to use it for the treatment of patients affected by Covid-19. The leader of the WHO, the Eritrean Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus very close to Xi Jinping and primarily responsible for the communication delays for the outbreak of the pandemic in Wuhan, there was no scruple to ban a drug that works for science.
But now in India the WHO contact person, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, risks the death penalty after being sued by the Indian Bar Association (IBA) – which is not the association of Indian bars but of Indian lawyers – which sued him for his “misleading statements against the use of Ivermectin that did not allow its use causing hundreds of thousands of deaths“. In the complaint, Indian lawyers ask the country’s government to “urgently examine the situation and in particular the seriousness of the issues involved, which concern not only the citizens of India but also the security, survival and well-being of all humanity“. In particular, the lawyers intend to hit the “prohibition of care“Imposed by WHO”for some substances such as Ivermectin whose effectiveness is amply demonstrated by dozens and dozens of scientific studies and opinions of prestigious doctors who work daily in the field against the pandemic“. There is also one of the denounced Indian lawyers Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the world leader of the WHO.
Also in Italy the use of Ivermectina against Covid-19 is not allowed, but a few days ago Anna Maria Bernini, leader of Forza Italia in the Senate and exponent of the majority of the Draghi government, in a press conference on the pandemic and home care, said that “we must prevent future hospitalizations by focusing on home therapies, also looking at the new perspectives highlighted by recent studies“, Underlining that”it is the only solution if we do not want to slow down or even reset the activities of prevention and early analysis of existing pathologies“. For the senator from Trieste Laura Stable, member of the Healthcare Commission also for Forza Italia, “the evolution of the pandemic is uncertain. The vaccination campaign is doing well, but it is also advisable to work on other fronts, to improve eating habits and lifestyles to strengthen the immune system and above all to review the protocols on home care. There are drugs that, according to scientific evidence, are very effective such as ivermectin, not yet available on the market in Italy“.
“In the last decade – explained in the same press conference the doctor Alberto Donzelli, specialist in hygiene and preventive medicine – various clinical trials have begun to show ivermectin antiviral activity which is now proving useful in much of the world in the prevention and treatment of mild, medium and severe Covid-19, with greater efficacy when used early. Our hope is that it is one of the authorized therapies in dealing with covid19, also because the evidence supporting the use of ivermectin exceeds that used for the approval of other treatments charged to the NHS, which moreover showed lesser benefits.“, He concluded Donzelli.
Even in our country, therefore, even if in a very timid way, something is dying. What must we still wait to use ivermectin also in Italy, in the face of such scientific evidence?
