Default Supply Issues” Pause UK Ivermectin Trial as Merck Lands $2.2B US Govt. Contract for N

A 5,000 subject study of Ivermectin treatment efficacy for Covid-19 has been suspended.

Quote:
In late June, the University of Oxford announced that PRINCIPLE, one of the U.K. Government’s national priority platform trials of COVID-19 treatments, would be evaluating Ivermectin, the seventh treatment to be investigated in the PRINCIPLE trial. Along with the influenza antiviral drug favipiravir, Ivermectin, the “safe, broad-spectrum antiparasitic drug,” was added as part of the trial’s focus on treatment for people in the U.K. who have recently developed symptoms of COVID-19. Yet, suddenly, without an explanation from Merck—who is a key manufacturer of the generic, readily available drug Ivermectin—MedPage Today reports that PRINCIPLE’s trial on the drug is paused
The first explanation for the so-called pause was difficulty in finding an adequate supply of the easily manufactured, generic Ivermectin. Typically drug trials secure an adequate supply of the medication before beginning the study. As the credibility of the supply difficulties excuse eroded a new story emerged to take its place courtesy of pharmaceutical giant Merck.

Quote:
[It has] concluded that the probability of Ivermectin providing a potentially safe and efficacious treatment option for SARS-CoV-2 infection is low and have prioritized internal efforts towards the development of alternate candidates that provide a higher probability of success for the treatment of COVID-19. If clinical data emerge providing definitive evidence for a positive benefit-risk assessment of the use of Ivermectin in COVID-19, we stand ready to provide our expertise and resources as needed.”
That's right they cut off Ivermectin trials prematurely but they are willing to look at other studies. But wait, there is another far more compelling motive for Merck to cancel the trials.

Quote:
Merck and Ridgeback Biotherapeutics recently signed a $2.2 billion agreement with the U.S. government to purchase 3.1 million courses of molnupiravir, which the company began focusing on in April 2021
Multi billion dollar contract versus inexpensive generic, who cares if it doesn't work there are bonuses and stock options to think about.

This is EXACTLY what I have been saying about these low cost drugs like Ivermectin from the beginning of this ScamDemic. There are BILLIONs of dollars at stake here from bringing new drugs to market along with BILLIONs of dollars in the so-called "vaccines" to be made. It would all come crashing down if people knew the truth that inexpensive drugs already on the market, are very effective at treating Covid.

I've said it before and I will say it again, FOLLOW THE MONEY!

From the last paragraph in the linked article:

Quote:
Indeed, as the COVID-19 pandemic persists under the relentless perseverance of government agencies, their billion-dollar contracts with influential pharmaceutical companies leave inexpensive, proven effective treatments such as the Nobel Prize-winning “wonder drug” Ivermectin in the dust. Meanwhile, patients are needlessly dying as they await the life-saving treatment. As previously reported by UncoverDC and reiterated by TrialSite News (but entirely ignored by mainstream media), one could argue there is a “seemingly orchestrated public relations propaganda campaign to delegitimize the drug [Ivermectin] and all those who supported further research or off-label usage.”
Exactly. I can imagine a class action lawsuit against all of those that prevented doctors and others from openly discussing different treatments while people were dying from Covid.

My wife's aunt and uncle, both in their 70's, contracted Covid last fall. Her Aunt recovered, but her uncle was put on a ventilator. I told her Aunt at the time to DEMAND he be given Ivermectin, but the doctors refused. Her Uncle ended up dying in mid January. I still believe that Ivermectin could have saved his life.

What solution for treating of Covid-19 has already been found? Molnupiravir has a 50% success rate in reducing hospitalization but it 100% successful in boosting Merck's bottom line. The Democrat party of science has no interest in research into inexpensive alternatives when ignorance makes their cronies rich.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Again no intelligent answer from you, just like the Biden regime. The so-called Covid-19 vaccine is so ineffective it required a change to the definition of the term "vaccine". But let's pretend nobody will get sick if they are vaccinated.

Remember how the expense of monoclonal antibodies treatment was dismissed as too expensive compared to the vaccine our President still touts as completely effective? Yet now it's ok to abandon research into inexpensive treatment alternatives to Merck's pricey therapeutic.

This thread is how I found this forum. I'm a cattle & goat producer in Ohio. I typically give Ivermectin to my cattle in the fall & spring to kill worms & lice, goats are given it PRN.
Ivermectin was unavailable this fall and I had to switch to a different product. I checked multiple mail order animal drug outlets & my vet; none could get Ivermectin. With the WHO & CDC all screaming that humans should not use it, who is using it? The form I use is injectible, certainly not a form typically usable by humans.

If the supply of Ivermectin for humans also is in short supply, as indicated by the UK study, will we start seeing a surge of covid in some of India's states and in Japan?
