Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) Invited to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel to Present Latest Data on Ivermectin

Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC Alliance)

Newswise — NEW YORK, N.Y. — JANUARY 7, 2021:

On January 6, 2021, Drs. Pierre Kory and Paul Marik, founding members of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), appeared before the National Institutes of Health COVID-19 Treat­ment Guidelines Panel. The panel, which is in the process of reviewing the rapidly emerging data on the role of ivermectin in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19, invited Drs. Kory and Marik to present the latest data, along with Dr. Andrew Hill—a senior research fellow at the University of Liverpool, who was hired by UNITAID to provide research for the World Health Organization (WHO).

The NIH invited the FLCCC members and Dr. Hill to the panel to present the four months of data on ivermectin that has emerged since the NIH last issued its guidelines on August 27.  During the meeting, the FLCCC and Dr. Hill pressed the NIH to reevaluate their recommendation for ivermectin.

The doctors explained to the panel that numerous clinical studies—including peer-reviewed randomized controlled trials—showed large magnitude benefits of ivermectin in prophylaxis, early treatment and also in late-stage disease. Taken together, the doctors reported that the dozens of clinical trials that have now emerged from around the world are substantial enough to reliably assess clinical efficacy.

Specifically, the FLCCC physicians and Dr. Hill presented data from 18 randomized controlled trials that included over 2,100 patients. The trial results demonstrated that ivermectin produces faster viral clearance, faster time to hospital discharge, faster time to clinical recovery, and a 75% reduc­tion in mortality rates.

“In order to save thousands who will die while waiting for their turn to receive the vaccine, it is imperative that treatment guidelines issued by the NIH over four months ago be updated to reflect the strength of the data for ivermectin in prophylaxis, early treatment, and late-stage disease,” said Dr. Kory, FLCCC president, following the hearing.

The NIH panel signaled their intention to consider the data and update their recommendation but did not give a date for their decision.

The FLCCC Alliance was organized in March, 2020 by a group of highly published, world renowned Critical Care physician/scholars – with the academic support of allied physicians from around the world – to research and develop lifesaving protocols for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 in all stages of illness. Their MATH+ Hospital Treatment Protocol – introduced in March, 2020, has saved tens of thousands of patients who were critically ill with COVID-19.  Now, the FLCCC’s new I-Mask+ Prophylaxis and Early At-Home Outpatient Treatment Protocol with Ivermectin has been released – and is a potential solution to the global pandemic.

Researchers have found an independent association between COVID-19-related income loss and financial strain and depression, according to the latest study from the COVID-19 Resilience Project, run by the Lifespan Brain Institute (LiBI) of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Penn Medicine. This association was found in two separate cohorts – one primarily in the United States and one in Israel – and the depressive symptoms worsened over time in participants who were hit financially, above and beyond pandemic-related anxiety. The findings were published today in the Journal of Affective Disorders.
