Tomás Pérez Porcuna, a doctor in infectious diseases and tropical medicine explains to us what is Ivermectin and its effect in relation to the virus of the COVID-19.

Description of the Study:

  • Title: Clinical Trial of Ivermectin for the Treatment and Prophylaxis of COVID-19.
  • Principal Investigator: Tomás Pérez Porcuna.
  • Center of Implementation: Fundació Assistencial Mútua Terrassa.

Objectives of the Study:

Principal Objective: Prove the effectiveness of Ivermectin in the prophylaxis and treatment of COVID-19.

The reduction of COVID-19 transmission between patients is essential in order to control the virus, at least until a vaccine or an effective treatment is found. This research group is currently planning to study the use of Ivermectin which has tremendous potential in reducing COVID-19 transmission. Hence, by collaborating in the crowdfunding campaign for this study you will be contributing to finding out whether Ivermectin can be used to prevent COVID-19.

More about this Study:

Ivermectin is an antibiotic that is currently used to treat parasitic infections and has reportedly shown the ability to inhibit the replication of the virus in-vitro. But what makes Ivermectin so special? It is an active drug that is more than 40 years old, it is cheap and easy to find worldwide. More than 50 million people take it every year, proving it to have a good safety profile, making it an ideal candidate.
