Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin for the treatment of COVID-19-Review of study by Didier Raoult

  再生回数 56,434



Let's be clear. We hope that hydroxychloroquine will be successful in future clinical trials. We just want to point out that based on this one trial, hype is not warranted.
Beware what you hear! President Trump recently Tweeted out a message saying Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin taken together, have a real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine.
He is referring to a study by Prof. Didier Raoult and coworkers from Marseille France. Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin as a treatment of COVID-19: results of an open-label non-randomized clinical trial.
In this video we review the major problems of this study - groups not being comparable, incomplete testing in the control group, patient dropouts, which might have significantly changed their conclusions, inconsistent reporting of data, and a potentially dangerous combination of drugs.

Raoult's experiment looks promising. Before investing millions in this treatment, further trials are needed on larger scale with a flawless protocol. Hopefully it will confirm. Right now, it cannot be use as a proven treatment. Dosages and secondary effects must also be addressed clearly...since the 2 molecules have drawbacks so that nobody dies from the remedy!

20200330: Criticising the French results is fine. But the FRENCH information is presented here almost exclusively to determine (or undermine) the efficacy of Chloroquine. So this video's conclusions should also add nothing to our knowledge other than we now know the French results are flawed. Or not useful. What I expect should be appreciated and studied are the results out of (in this order) Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and China. So let's not dismiss Chloroquine yet. Keep digging. As maybe the efficacy of Chloroquine may increase the earlier it is given. And stop the scare mongering over Chloroquine. People have been self administering it as a prophylactic for decades because the risk of malaria outweigh the risk of the bloody drug. Putting on a DOCTOR's tone of voice can be falsely reassuring. But Trust Nobody - BTN. Especially what you read in the newspaper. That was a common saying before the Internet. Have we forgotten everything? And so I advocate the taking of Chloroquine as a prophylactic (allowed for malaria) should also be allowed as a human right. Subject to supply. And fuck the doctors. Fuck the W.H.O. As for the risks of Chloroquine for people over (say) 60 and the rare few at risk from personal health complications, let a doctor do an assessment. Except they would have to bear a huge work load. But it could also be via a self assessment. Someone just has to type up a check list.

You would have to be really disturbed to give placebos to a dieing patient. This is not a university study, these are battlefield conditions. Right to try was set up to get around medical bureaucracies and give people a chance. These treatments did not fly out of someone's butt, they were in use in other countries and were showing promise. We do have a baseline and that is rhe percentage expected to die. If the treatment improves the numbers, then it's a win. Please keep the placebos for youself, I'm not your lab rat.

here is your balanced group from results published by a doctor in NY: 669 patients with breathing issues were treated his protocol with those 2 popular medications you mentioned plus zinc sulfate: 0 dead after 9 days. One would need to be blind not to see a trend and not need a double blind study that could take a long time.

There are two key factors here: 1. No patents and control for big pharma with this drug regimen. Therefore since congress and the fda are bought and sold by big pharma it’s better to let people die until a treatment can be found that allows greater profiteering. 2. Trump made the mistake of being hopeful about this treatment. It’s more important to let people die if we can somehow smear trump and make him wrong in the process. This is politics at play with a giant dose of capitalism, but there’s nothing altruistic gong on here.

Breaking: "Debate Ends Over Chloroquine as France Officially Sanctions Usage" - tinyurl.com/v6ymza6 This very recent decision was apparently based on a 80-patient follow-up study done by Raoult. You could also argue that the follow-up study has the same problems, but in such a time as this, decisions have to be made to save lives, and better studies will have to wait.

In a pandemic situation, with thousands deads daily, no time to do academic tests like for a new unknown molecules, chloroquine is known since the 19th century. Dr Raoult just emeteted an hypothesis and tested a well-known molecule for a new desease. And happily it seems working.

When I started farming I have to admit I didn't know much about sheep. So i started with 4040 sheep and out of these I took 40 sheep and divided them into two groups of twenty. One of the groups of twenty got water and the other group of twenty didn't get any water to drink. What I found out after about a week the group of twenty that didn't get any water all of those sheep died but the group getting water were fine and healthy. So I concluded by this study that sheep need water My only mistake was I never gave any water to the other 4000 sheep while I was conducting the study so they died also.

This is a great video from analysis of clinical studies point of view. However, it should be more humble in what it’s conclusions are: That the French clinical study had serious flaws. Nowhere is it said that the FDA should approve this treatment just because of a foreign clinical trial, however much perfect that trial was. The FDA will need to do its own (hopefully better designed) clinical trial and from there arrive at its decision to approve the treatment or not. Again, Trump has no power to authorize this treatment, only the FDA can do that. Trump merely said he has a good hunch about this particular treatment. Subsequent clinical studies by the FDA will prove or disprove Trump’s hunch, but everyone, including Trump should be free to have a hunch.

It has been verified by physicians of all infected nations that hydroxychloroquine can indeed effectectively treat coronavirus cases. It is indeed currently utilized in treatment protocols all around the world along with another existing antiviral drug called ramdesivir. If you inquire a little, you are going to surely find a really long research paper by the initial responders in China. The WHO has also confirmed the efficacy of the drug in question. Raoult was particularly bashed by the an ex-minister of France, who currently has vested interest in a pharmaceutical company. Basically, she was furious that this man promoted the use of an already available and cheap drug. Obviously, she wanted to come up with an expensive alternative and earn huge profits from it. They silenced this man. Not only that. They even forced the French government to prohibit use of this drug. It was only recently allowed after suffering so many deaths.

Are you going to totally ignore the trial that was done in China, which concluded with the recommendation for Hydroxychloroquine 400 mg BID day 1, then 200 mg BID days 2-5? That was completed and published Feb. 17. Is the CDC going to recommend what Taiwan has done to limit the spread, or does Taiwan's exclusion from the WHO invalidate them? Get with the program. This situation calls for what the military refers to as "field expedient." That means you use the best info you've got at the time, because without it you're going to die. Look also at the other work Dr. Raoult has done for the past few years on virus treatment with hydroxychloroquine. This is not a new arena for him. Could China's use of hydroxychloroquine be the reason they are seeing so few new cases in the past few weeks?

Keep collecting data and we'll revisit this as the treated patient numbers increase. This episode should be titled Medhamstringery. Franz's gaggle missed the prime factor of elevating the intra-level zinc of the patients by the action of the zinc-ionosphere hydroxycloroquine. Plus, you can immediately detect the sickening hatred for Donald Trump that's skewing the Franz's logic.

So we now have results from numerous trials in China, South Korea, France, Australia and in the US all have shown positive results but because they didn't follow the normal long winded procedures guys like this dismiss them. The anti-viral properties of this chloroquine and zinc has been known for 10 years which is why it was tried. We don't have the luxury of a two year trial for this, these drugs are already well known and widely used for other purposes and are known to be reasonably safe when taken properly so it's a no brainer to use them. My understanding is that in the NY trial no one given these drugs has so far died and the length and severity of their illness has been greatly reduced.

If used on many people, the treatment will eventually cause some deaths. As the known side effects show. So the treatment should be used on all infected people with a higher chance of dying from the corona virus than dying from the treatment. Pragmatically that is the logical thing to do, even if that means the treatment will kill some people. In the rare cases that may have a higher risk from the treatment (heart disease, abnormal blood pressure...) They should carefully weight the risk either way.

Hospitals want to fill all ICU beds because that makes the hospital money. Health care providers want to work 16+ hour shifts back to back treating multiple critical patients that might die when they could just prescribe hydroxychloroquine+azithromycin and go home and sleep because money. All the dead nurses and doctors are a conspiracy by the mainstream media, healthcare providers are actually in a secret cabal with a hidden stockpile of pills to pop while everyone around them dies. Fucksake. Yes, everything is a game where evil liberals are “winning” money from you. This isn’t a fucking miserable and frightening experience for everyone. Medmastery posted an educational video, which happens to follow another video that discusses why this medication combination might actually be effective. It doesn’t say azithromycin+hydroxychloroquine isn’t going to be effective. It just points out why further validation is urgently needed. Unfortunately, this point of view doesn’t flagrantly suck Donald Trump’s dick. If the combination treatment is revealed to be effective in any of the current clinical trials-ones that aren’t PCR swabs on 40 some patients in TOTAL with 6 patients in the hydroxychloroquine only treatment group conveniently disappeared (hint: 3 in ICU 1 dead) and other patients conveniently excluded from treatment due to “reasons”, it’s going to be presented here as well. I’m going to remember how liberal vs. republican radicalism and gamesmanship has weaponized this pandemic.

I'm French - Bordeaux, South west, Atlantic coast, and have been quarantined/confined for already two weeks. Very interesting video. Detailled analysis. Raoult - I've been watching since early january all videos of his Marseille insitute - including many unrelated to covid19 to gauge how the man thinks and Goodness knows that being quarantined I got time - Raoult really thinks it works. So too do his colleagues. Pr. Zhong Nanshan in China - whose study Raoult initialled relayed, Raoult's institute belonging to the French watchdogs when it comes to emerging diseases - thinks that too. If the side effects are statistically small, the risk may be lower than not having these two drugs. If one out of a thousant person dies because of the medecine, if everyone has it, the consequences may be more dramatic that the havoc covid19 is already wreaking. I'm not a specialist, let alone an expert. I defer to these guys. But your video is the first I come across - and it's a JPchat suggestion, mind you! - which truly analyses Raoult's team's preliminary results. Many specialists in France sided with him. A staggering number of others did not, pointing to flaws in the study. Many are not experts in his field, though. And his anti-establishment stance poses a problem - doesn't suit up, long hair, thinks Darwin's evolution is not how nature works, about as much a contrarian as Christopher Hitchens was. Thank you for explaining all those biases. I honestly tend to side with Raoult's team (authority bias, I know...). But it is my opinion, and it's not an informed one. I'm ignorant in those fields - mine is Physics. On a side note, congrats for making the effort to perfectly pronounce all french locations and names, it was very good. Le bonjour depuis Bordeaux.
