Retrospective database analysis of 56 mild COVID-19 patients, all treated with vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc, comparing ivermectin + doxycycline (n=14), AZ (n=13), HCQ (n=14), and SOC (n=15), finding that all groups recover quickly, and there was no significant difference between the groups. Subject to the usual limitation of a database study, very small size, and limited evaluation of patients.
This is the 43rd of 99 COVID-19 controlled studies
for ivermectin, which collectively show efficacy with p<0.0000000001 (1 in 2 sextillion)
. 46 studies are RCTs
, which show efficacy with p=0.00000014
This study is excluded in the after exclusion results of meta
no serious outcomes reported and fast recovery in treatment and control groups, there is little room for a treatment to improve results.
This study includes HCQ
