These results would be expected to receive priority publication due to the predicted impact on the pandemic and confirmation of previous prophylaxis studies. The lack of formal publication suggests a negative publication bias that may be due to politicization in the authors' location.
Note that this prophylaxis study is different to the Vallejos early treatment trial.
This is the 28th 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
