Retrospective 88 ventilated COVID-19 patients in Japan, 39 treated with ivermectin within 3 days of admission, showing significantly reduced incidence of GI complications and mortality, and increased ventilator-free days with treatment.
This is the 74th of 104 COVID-19 controlled studies for ivermectin, which collectively show efficacy with p<0.0000000001 (1 in 1 sextillion).
51 studies are RCTs, which show efficacy with p=0.00000015.

This is a PDF file of an article that has undergone enhancements after acceptance, such as the addition of a cover page and metadata, and formatting for readability, but it is not yet the definitive version of record. This version will undergo additional copyediting, typesetting and review before it is published in its final form, but we are providing this version to give early visibility of the article. Please note that, during the production process, errors may be discovered which could affect the content, and all legal disclaimers that apply to the journal pertain.
Conclusions The administration of ivermectin improved GI complications and VFD in ventilated patients with COVID-19. The beneficial influence of ivermectin on the intestines may improve outcome in these patients. Further research is needed to investigate the mechanism and effects of ivermectin treatment. Conflict of interest The authors declare that they have no conflict of interests.
