Updated Bayesian analysis of a subset of ivermectin trials showing that there is strong evidence to support a causal link between ivermectin and COVID-19 severity and mortality, and that the result is robust in sensitivity analysis, including exclusion of Elgazzar et al.
7 meta analyses show significant improvements with ivermectin for mortality Bryant, Hariyanto, Kory, Lawrie, Nardelli, Zein, hospitalization Schwartz, recovery Kory, and cases Kory.
Currently there are 99 ivermectin for COVID-19 studies, showing 49% lower mortality [35‑60%], 29% lower ventilation [13‑42%], 38% lower ICU admission [14‑56%], 34% lower hospitalization [20‑45%], and 81% fewer cases [71‑87%].

Neil, M. & Fenton, N. E. (2021). Bayesian meta-analysis of ivermectin effectiveness in treating Covid-19 (with sensitivity analysis to account for possibly flawed studies). Submitted to Am J Therapeutics. Available at: http:// Bayesian Hypothesis Testing and Hierarchical Modeling of Ivermectin Effectiveness To the Editor: A recent meta-analysis of the trials evaluating ivermectin that was published in AJT1 (referred to here as Bryant) was widely welcomed by those who argue that this antiparasitic drug is a cheap and effective treatment for COVID-19 infections. The study concluded: “Moderate-certainty evidence finds that large reductions in COVID-19 deaths are possible using ivermectin. Using ivermectin early in the clinical course may reduce numbers progressing to severe disease. The apparent safety and low cost suggest that ivermectin is likely to have a significant impact on the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 pandemic globally.” These conclusions stand in stark contrast to those of a later meta-analysis2 (referred to here as Roman) that looked at a subset of the trials. Roman concluded: “In comparison to standard of care or placebo, ivermectin (IVM) did not reduce all-cause mortality, length of stay, or viral clearance in randomized controlled trials in COVID19 patients with mostly mild disease. IVM did not have effect on adverse events or severe adverse events. IVM is not a viable option to treat COVID-19 patients.” Irrespective of the errors in the data and the analysis performed by Roman that were already highlighted by American Journal of Therapeutics (2021) 28(5) Crawford,3 we believe that this conclusion is not..
