Big Pharma influences high-impact journals to selectively publish (purportedly) negative studies while outright rejecting positive studies from publication. JAMA did it again yesterday.
I would love to see you give Alex Berenson a lesson or two, Dr. Kory:
I just shared this with Alex (https://alexberenson.substack.com/p/on-covid-and-courage/comment/5159939), along with the following question:
“How about the courage to reconsider your confirmation bias in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary, Alex?”
You are a speaker of truth and facts. Sad that this has been such a crime on humanity. An alternate universe you have been an inspiration and an extremely honorable man. Who has stood by his principals. God bless you.
I with Margaret Anna Berenson needs a dose of reality he has really crossed again another line Berensons integrity or lack there of dimishes with each new substack I think he has a doctors complex he needs to stay on his side of the highway. He is way out of his league. It appears he is looking for a lot of attention it’s pathetic. When it comes to medical treatment and the deciphering of studies I will lean towards the FLCC et al. They don’t have an agenda Berenson seems to. His attack on Fox with Dr. Malone raised my concerns about his professionalism. He acts like a spoiled kid not getting enough attention
There are 100's.. meta-analyses, especially of those treated early are overwhelmingly positive. Even the designed to fail RCT's showed summary benefit in meta-analyses although some were individually negative. Can find every single study here: https://c19hcq.com/. Also not that the way omiron enters cell and replicates ( endosomal pathway) maes HCQ particularly potent, I have had great results in omicron with it, sometimes even more than ivermectin
Hello Dr. Kory, I am just getting over COVID, hit me like a bus, did 4 days from the start on Ivermectin, did not stop the bus from running over me for 11 days in COVID hell....threw the kitchen sink at it...the works and more....sure WHO would call my case mild because I did not go to the hospital but hell it still was....in desperation, even though 11 years ago I publically denied and wrote against it (in my ignorance but had a few good reasons) some angel brought me out some chlorine dioxide.....for decades campers and water system people have known it is the best anti-viral, antibacterial and antifungul on the planet....FDA hates it much more than Ivermectin....much more, but it pulled me out of hell in two days......now I am in touch with some heavy duty medical scientists and I am sold....there is even a book about it by one of these scientists about its use with COVID....I tell you from my heart to you a brave soul....I know your feelings about not being listened to by the mainstream world.....please listen to me, read what I am writing for it is the secret Tiger Tank of Modern medicine yet modern medicine does not want to know about it......please contact me on skype at marksircus or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I published both of these this week....
Don't think Dr. Kory will see this but I believe it's still worth asking. Is it possible, or indeed probable, the worldwide IVM manufacturing supply has been compromised to a large extent (it's drug properties)? There is NOTHING the "people" perpetuating this on the planet are incapable of.
Thanks for the Chapter and Verse.
They really have imposed an axis of control over the whole industry. Journals, trials companies & fraud, regulators, media, medical licenses, corporate pharmacies, hospital administrators, government compensation for patients (i.e. remdesivir) - its enough to make a guy "healthcare hesitant."
"254 patients (51.8%) were fully vaccinated with 2 doses of COVID-19 vaccines" Wow, they managed to enroll a bunch of those rare breakthrough cases. I do not trust the "science". The devil is in the details. I wonder what the "standard of care" is. Probably better than the care here. I would guess they were under treated by FLCCC standards. Does not sound like a healthy population and only 13 died. If anything they proved covid is not a crisis.
Thank you so much for writing this, Dr. Kory. As an MD, this did not make sense to me, especially knowing all of the overwhelming evidence that ivermectin works, but I have not taken the time to tear the study apart. Thanks to you and FLCCC, now I don’t have to. I find it very interesting that more patients were vaccinated in the ivermectin group than the control group and just the fact that so many of them were vaccinated. I wonder how that plays into the result as well. In addition, didn’t the Ivermectin group have twice as many obese patients as the control group? We all know that obesity is the highest risk factor for mortality in COVID-19.
I also wonder if the study authors purposely capped the enrollment of patients when it was starting to reach statistical significance for decrease in mortality. I used to never believe this kind of stuff could happen but this whole pandemic has really opened my eyes.
Yes, Dr. Kory. And where was the Zinc in the study? Did I miss that?
I’m not sure the psychological components of this study are properly considered. When a doctor who has seen a medicine work gives it to a patient, he has some confidence the drug will work and that helps relieve the patient's anxiety. Anxiety, I believe it has been shown, can depress the immune response.
So I think researchers in every medical study should be expected to explain their motivation for conducting the study, what their expectations were, and whether they received any positive or negative social feedback during the course of the study. The study Introduction seems to indicate the doctors were not enthusiastic about ivermectin from the start, and with the study being conducted while controversy over ivermectin was growing around the world, it would not be surprising if the controversy further affected their attitude, expectations and willingness to report objectively.
We are only told that the patients were given informed consent, but not how the issue was presented to them. Were they told they were being given an experimental medicine, and that they should watch for and report any adverse effects as soon as possible? Presenting the issue to them in that way, without confidence the drug would work, could provoke anxiety and possibly increase the rate of adverse events.
Time to focus on patients that need and want your medical expertise. There is a huge market and is growing exponentially. Your decision to start a private practice is wise, desperately needed and will be rewarding.
TY FOR THE REVIEW OF THE PUBLICATION. I had read the “Forbes” article….made me feel ill inside. I thank the FLCCC for continuing to stand no matter how many times the Group, and or individual members have been gut punched… Personally, I suspect I might not have been able to be Y’ALL. You continue to make me Proud. I am thankful I learned the truth so early, all thanks to actually You, Dr. Kory, regarding the disease and treatment of the CV19. Be BLESSED and Stay STRONG….. Y’all are on the Side of TRUTH.
I would add a fourth concern. Open label study. In other words, doctors knew who got IVM and who didn’t. Consequently, the best endpoint in any open label COVID study is: 1) the one that can least likely be manipulated by the health care providers; and 2) is the most meaningful outcome given that the vast majority will survive COVID. Hospitalization, while meaningful as an endpoint, is negated in this study since all patients were hospitalized. That leaves death as the best endpoint, especially since their are no known treatments to reverse it. Now, add the 70% reduction in the death data from this [slightly underpowered] study to the existing meta-analysis data using the same endpoint, and the case for IVM is decisively stronger than before this study, CNN’s, Alex Berenson’s and MSM’s (mainstream medicine’s) gleeful opinion to the contrary notwithstanding.
Dr. Kory - Thank you for all that you are doing for your patients and everyone else in these trying times. You have saved so many more lives than you’ll ever know. You and Senator Johnson are the best!
