Effectiveness of ivermectin-based multidrug therapy in severely hypoxic, ambulatory COVID-19 patients
et al., Future Microbiology,
Small study of 24 consecutive patients in serious condition (9 days post symptoms, mean SpO2 87.4) using combined treatment with ivermectin, doxycycline, zinc, vitamin D, and vitamin C, showing no mortality or hospitalization with treatment. Two patients declined treatment and both died. This study uses a synthetic control arm.
risk of death, 86.2% lower, RR 0.14, p = 0.04, NNT 6.9, relative risk is not 0 because of continuity correction due to zero events (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm).
risk of hospitalization, 93.5% lower, RR 0.07, p = 0.001, NNT 3.3, relative risk is not 0 because of continuity correction due to zero events (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm), primary outcome.
