Doctors Sue FDA, Allege Crusade Against Ivermectin ‘Unlawfully Interfered’ With Their Ability to Treat Patients, by Children’s Health Defense

A substantial percentage of those who died of Covid would be alive if they had been administered Ivermectin. From Children’s Health Defense at childrenshealthdefense.org:

In a lawsuit filed June 2, Drs. Robert L. Apter, Mary Talley Bowden and Paul E. Marik argued the FDA acted outside of its authority by directing the public, including health professionals and patients, to not use ivermectin — even though the drug is fully approved by the FDA for human use.

Three physicians are suing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for launching what they allege is a “crusade” against ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 that “unlawfully interfered” with the doctors’ ability to practice medicine.

In a lawsuit filed June 2, Drs. Robert L. Apter, Mary Talley Bowden and Paul E. Marik argued the FDA acted outside of its authority by directing the public, including health professionals and patients, to not use ivermectin — even though the drug is fully approved by the FDA for human use.

The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Texas, Galveston Division, also names the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra and Robert Califf, acting FDA commissioner.

According to the complaint:

“The FDA generally cannot ban particular uses of human drugs once they are otherwise approved and admitted to the market, even if such use differs from the labeling — commonly referred to as ‘off-label’ use.

“The FDA also can not advise whether a patient should take an approved drug for a particular purpose. Those decisions fall within the scope of the doctor-patient relationship.

“Attempts by the FDA to influence or intervene in the doctor-patient relationship amount to interference with the practice of medicine, the regulation of which is — and always has been — reserved to states.”

The plaintiffs said their lawsuit isn’t about whether ivermectin is an effective treatment for COVID-19. It’s about who determines the appropriate treatment for each unique patient and whether the FDA can interfere with that process.

The Global Disinformation Campaign to Suppress the Evidence of Efficacy of Ivermectin, by Pierre Kory, MD, MPA

Just the fact that they tried so hard to suppress Ivermectin, a cheap, reliable, and safe preventative and treatment for Covid, tells you that there was a much broader and nefarious agenda in play. From Pierre Kory, MD, MPA:

After a week of non-stop lectures, panels, speeches, and expert testimony, my new mission has now come into focus.

Editor’s Note: Dr. Pierre Kory brought ivermectin’s remarkable efficacy against covid-19 to global attention with his December, 2020, Senate testimony, which received nearly nine million YouTube views before Google/YouTube censored it. As he continues to lead the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance and treat covid patients in private practice, Kory is making a historical record of his witness of the government and media corruption that has kept repurposed drugs out of the hands of doctors and covid sufferers. This guest post is part one of the series.

Dr. Pierre Kory, (flanked by [from left] Dr. Ryan Cole, Dr. Peter McCullough, Senator Ron Johnson, and Dr. Robert Malone) spoke passionately at Johnson’s roundtable in Washington in January. Kory blasted the corruption suppressing repurposed drugs that would end the pandemic. (Teresa Banik Capuzzo)

As one of the world’s leading experts on the clinical use of ivermectin in covid-19, I feel that it is my personal responsibility to try to create a historical record of the myriad actions taken against ivermectin by the global vaccine and pharmaceutical industry due to ivermectin’s long known and now proven role as the single greatest solution to the global pandemic.

All subsequent “Disinformation Campaign Against Ivermectin” posts should be understood in this vein. My previous post of my recent testimony in Senator Ron Johnson’s historic expert panel hearing detailed the incredible efficacy reported by the numerous health ministries around the world that deployed ivermectin in early treatment programs. Note that I did not even bother to detail the sixty-eight of seventy-seven controlled trials involving 86,000 patients from twenty-six countries (many of them prospective, double blind, randomized controlled trials) that collectively report massive reductions in infections, hospitalizations, and deaths, nor the dozen systematic reviews and meta-analyses (summary analyses of all the trials) that report the same. Nor did I present the analyses done after removing all the trials being attacked as low quality or “potentially fraudulent”—which actually found the signals of benefit increased.

I’m Not A Doctor… And Proud Of It, by Jerry Powlas

The image of the medical profession has taken a huge hit due to Covid. From Jerry Powlas at thebluestateconservative.com:
If I could afford a lawyer he would advise me to insert a disclaimer in this article (as others have done): “I’m not a doctor and I’m not offering you medical advice. Investigate every point I make here and make your own decisions.“

So where is the part about talking this over with your doctor? There are maybe a million doctors in America. One doctor I really trust thinks you might get a straight answer from about 500 of them. The rest are buying the party line or are afraid to lose access to their profession. You might get better information from the nurses. Or you could try Tarot cards. Anyway, given the current state of things, I’m proud not to be a doctor.

It looks like the American medical establishment picked the wrong horse. Most of the people reading this will have seen the CDC message telling them, “You are not a horse.” CDC goes on to say “You are not a cow. Seriously y’all. Stop it.” The “y’all” bit is over the top. Some underpaid intern probably came up with that.

That message is part of the propaganda war on the use of ivermectin to treat Covid. The efforts of the CDC, NIH, FDA, WHO, and who knows what other alphabet soup agencies are an expression of their intention to deny any alternative to the three experimental vaccinations.

Anytime you encounter the words “There is no evidence” you can be fairly sure you are reading or listening to a Democrat, progressive, socialist, or communist trying to cancel something out of existence. For all I know, the far left may have a copyright on the phrase.

Florida Doctor: Families Sneak Ivermectin To Loved Ones In Hospitals With COVID-19, See Improvement, by Nannette Holt

It’s a complete disgrace that families have to sneak an effective remedy into a hospital. From Nannette Holt at The Epoch Times via zerohedge.com:

A Florida doctor says families of loved ones hospitalized with COVID-19 are resorting to desperate measures when approved treatments have failed.

File photo: A package of ivermectin tablets. (Natasha Holt/The Epoch Times)

And when it’s not too late, some have seen tremendous success by sneaking medications prohibited by hospitals to patients, says Eduardo Balbona, an independent internist in Jacksonville.

He’s helped dozens of seriously ill patients recover using ivermectin and other drugs and supplements not officially approved in the treatment of COVID-19, he says.

Hospitals receive payments from the federal government for treating patients with COVID-19. But those payments are tied to their use of approved treatments only, as outlined in the CARES Act. When there’s nothing left to try under those protocols, families naturally research alternatives,  Balbona says, often learning about treatments touted by independent physicians around the country.

Hoping to try anything that might work, families around the country have filed lawsuits asking judges to intervene.

In some cases, judges have ordered hospitals to allow the use of other treatments, such as ivermectin. Some of those seriously ill patients have recovered. In other cases, judges have sided with hospitals and declined the families’ requests to try.

FLCCC Doctor Gives COMPELLING TESTIMONY to NH House Committee in SUPPORT of IVERMECTIN Dispensed Without a Prescription, by Ken Eyring

The politicians are always the last to know. From Ken Eyring at granitegrok.com:

Ivermectin - Image Creddit Reddit

If HB1022 is passed into law, then credit is due to the sponsors of the Bill, as well as Dr. Paul E. Marik, M.D., FCCM, FCCP.  Dr. Marik is a founding member of FLCCC, The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance.

He traveled from Virginia to New Hampshire to testify before the House Health, Human Services, and Elderly Affairs Committee to support HB1022 – AN ACT permitting pharmacists to dispense the drug Ivermectin by means of a standing order.

In simple terms, anyone could go to a pharmacy and get Ivermectin without a doctor’s prescription.

That would be a huge win in the fight against Covid, especially considering the enormous success that has been achieved by using Ivermectin against Covid-19 in places like Delhi, India (97% of Covid cases obliterated) and in Uttar Pradesh, India (23 districts are now Covid-19 free, recovery rate over 98%).

Large, peer-reviewed research study proves ivermectin works, by the FLCCC Alliance

This study joins many others that prove the same thing: Ivermectin works. From the FLCCC Alliance via theburningplatform.com:

Regular use of ivermectin as a prophylactic was associated with significantly reduced COVID-19 infection, hospitalization and mortality rates.

The results are in from the world’s largest study of ivermectin for COVID-19.

Researchers in Brazil found that regular use of ivermectin as a prophylactic agent was associated with significantly reduced COVID-19 infection, hospitalization and mortality rates.

The study was conducted in Itajaí, a port city in the state of Santa Catarina, between July and December 2020. Study authors include FLCCC physicians Dr. Flavio Cadegiani and Dr. Pierre Kory. Lead author Dr. Lucy Kerr was approached by the mayor of Itajaí, after the city began to experience a severe outbreak of COVID.

The entire population of Itajaí was invited to participate in the program, which involved a medical visit to compile baseline, personal, demographic, and medical information. In the absence of contraindications, ivermectin was offered as a preventative treatment, to be taken for two consecutive days every 15 days at a dose of 0.2 mg/kg/day.

Of the 223,128 citizens of Itajaí considered for the study, a total of 159,561 subjects elected to participate: over 70% opted to take ivermectin, and 23% chose not to.

Stores Refusing To Sell Chicken Noodle Soup After Rumor COVID Patients Are Using It To Feel Better

From The Babylon Bee:

U.S.—Supermarkets nationwide are no longer selling chicken noodle soup in an attempt to combat COVID-19 self-medication with unauthorized treatments. Medical experts have grown concerned by a recent trend in the infected to self-medicate with the popular soup to feel better.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed a mandate to limit chicken noodle soup was recommended by the CDC. “As in the case of Ivermectin, a known horse de-wormer, many people were attempting to self-medicate with a hot bowl of soup. This is giving people a false sense of security and leading to violent overdoses in which belching and nausea occurred,” she clarified.

When pressed for more information Psaki referred reporters to the CDC, which will not answer their phone calls.

Racist Fox News reporter, Peter Doocy, then asked if clam chowder was being pushed as an alternative to chicken noodle because Dr. Fauci had investments in the clamming industry. “The American people want to know if the government is being influenced by Big Clam,” he added.

Chicken noodle soup will still be available with a doctor’s note and valid proof of insurance.

Saturday Night Fight.. At The Pharmacy, by Pierre Kory

Here’s one way to get your prescription for Ivermectin filled—threaten to sue the pharmacist who won’t fill it for practicing medicine without a license. From Pierre Kory at pierrekory.substack.com:

In the Omicron wildfire, with hundreds of thousands ill each day, U.S physicians and patients need their pharmacists support.. but most block access to generic medicines, fearfully and/or willfully.

I am exhausted.. physically and emotionally and morally. Although I am not sure moral exhaustion is “a thing,” the daily witnessing of masses of physicians and pharmacists abandoning their core responsibility of placing the welfare of the patient as their primary consideration.. is beyond wearying. As my friend and COVID expert Dr. Hector Carvallo has long ago said, “it’s time for the lawyers.” It is becoming increasingly critical that the law profession aid the medical profession as it has long ago been led astray by captured federal pharmaceutical agencies. Note that I no longer call them “federal health agencies” as all their actions have been 100% consistent with what a pharmaceutical or vaccine manufacturer would want them to do. To prove that point, I simply ask that, when you read an announcement in corporate media that reports a new decision or action by the federal pharmaceutical agencies (FPA’s for short), simply ask yourself “is that what a pharmaceutical company would do?”

Perfect example of this exercise was 2 days ago when it was announced that the “FPA” had authorized boosters for 12-17 year old’s against omicron (a generally mild cold in kids), using a vaccine designed for older, fundamentally different variants that have already spectacularly failed at giving protection against omicron given ever-increasing data of “negative efficacy” (i.e. vaccinated people are getting omicron more frequently than the unvaccinated). Yet the FPA “doubles down” with yet another “non-scientific policy” so that Pharma can increase the total market size of those eligible for a vaccine… and who cares if this decision ends up sending more kids to hospital than the disease ever would. Another brutal assault on public health. Another day in the United States of Pharma.

In the United States of Pharma, individual docs and pharmacists have been led so far astray, forgivably or unforgivably, due to the relentless barrage of dis-information targeted at them by the FPA’s (further supported by relentless, daily propaganda appearing in both major media and medical journals). The resulting proportion of these two professions that have failed to display even a modicum of either critical thinking or moral conviction.. is terrifying. It is also causing lots of problems for patients and physicians (a colleague of mine now differentiates “doctors” from “physicians”, reserving the latter term for those who follow our guiding principles and ethics by always, always, putting the patient’s welfare as their primary goal above all else, even at personal sacrifice).

Ivermectin prophylaxis used for COVID-19 reduces COVID-19 infection and mortality rates: A 220,517-subject, populational-level retrospective citywide. By Lucy Kerr, Cadegiani Flavio, Fernando Baldi, and Raysildo Barbosa Lobo

Yet another study that says Ivermectin works. From Lucy Kerr, Cadegiani Flavio, Fernando Baldi, and Raysildo Barbosa Lobo at researchgate.net:

Abstract and Figures

Background: Ivermectin has demonstrated different mechanisms of actions that could potentially protect from both COVID-19 infection and COVID-19-related comorbidities. Based on the existing literature and safety profile of ivermectin, a citywide program of prophylactic use of ivermectin for COVID-19 was implemented in Itajai, a Southern city in Brazil in the state of Santa Catarina. The objective of this analysis is to evaluate the effects of the use of ivermectin for prevention of COVID-19 infection, risk of dying and mortality, compared to non-users. Materials and methods: This is a retrospective analysis of registry data from the medical based citywide COVID-19 prevention with ivermectin program, between July 2020 to December of 2020. The whole population of Itajaí was invited for a medical visit to compile demographic and medical parameters. In the absence of contraindications, ivermectin was offered as an optional treatment for 2 days every 15 days at a dose of 0.2mg/kg/day. Patients’ preferences and medical autonomy were preserved. Ivermectin users were compared with the comorbidity-matched population of non-users for COVID-19 by age, sex, COVID-19 infection rate, and COVID-19 mortality rate. Results in terms of mortality were adjusted for all relevant variables and Propensity Score Matching (PSM) was calculated. Results: A total of 220,517 subjects were included in the analysis; 133,051 (60.3%) ivermectin users and 87,466 (39.7%) non-users. COVID-19 infection occurred in 4,311 (3.2%) treated subjects, and 3,034 (3.5%) non-treated subjects. This evidence showed a 7% reduction in COVID-19 infection rate with use of ivermectin: COVID-19 infection rate ratio (Risk ratio (RR) of 0.93; 95% confidence interval (CI), 0.89 – 0.98; p = 0.003). A total of 62 deaths (1.4% mortality rate) occurred among users and 79 deaths (2.6% mortality rate) among non-users, showing a 48% reduction in mortality rate (RR, 0,52; 95%CI, 0.37 – 0.72; p = 0.0001). Risk of dying from COVID-19 among ivermectin users was 45% lower than non-users (RR, 0.55; 95%CI, 0.40 – 0.77; p = 0.0004). Conclusion: Prophylactic use of ivermectin showed significantly reduced COVID-19 infection rate, mortality rate and chance of dying from COVID-19 on a calculated population-level analysis, which controlled for all relevant confounding variables.

“Hero” Judge Holds Hospital in Contempt: Give Ivermectin to a Dying Woman, or Pay a $10,000-a-Day Fine, by Mary Beth Pfeiffer

How on earth can two-bit hospital administrators justify defying a court order and refusing for several days to allow a physician to administer Ivermectin to a dying Covid patient? It’s inhumane. From Mary Beth Pfeiffer at rescue.substack.com:

A hospital outside Washington, D.C., wouldn’t give a 63-year-old woman the safe, FDA-approved drug shown highly effective against covid even after nothing else worked and her death was almost certain.

Kathleen Davies, 63, who has been hospitalized for more than 60 days, is shown with her daughter, Grace, 21, while on a BiPAP breathing machine. She has been in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator since November 3.

A sixty-three-year-old woman teeters between life and death in a Virginia hospital that has been forced, after a brutal court fight, to give her a safe, FDA-approved drug that her doctor had prescribed: ivermectin.

Whether it’s too late is the question. Kathleen Davies’ first dose was given in Fauquier Hospital in Warrenton, Virginia, about fifty miles west of Washington, D.C., on the evening of Monday, December 13. That was sixty-five days after admission; forty-one days after going on a ventilator; six days after a judge’s order to administer it, and fifteen minutes before $10,000-a-day fines would have kicked in for defying it.

The logjam broke Monday when Circuit Court Judge James P. Fisher laid down the law after a testy hearing. In a decision written as attorneys waited online, Fisher ruled the hospital was “in contempt for needlessly interposing requirements that stand in the way” of  ivermectin and for violating statutes under federal and state of Virginia right-to-try laws.

The hospital’s “failure to accommodate this critical patient’s health care wishes”—as the judge had ordered on December 7—is “is particularly egregious,” he wrote.

A day after the nail-biting experience, Davies’ attorney, Ralph Lorigo, said, “This judge is the hero. He had the guts. He had the stamina. He had the willingness to enforce what he said.”

Lorigo, a Buffalo, New York, lawyer for four decades, has pioneered an entirely new legal practice dedicated to securing ivermectin for patients for whom other covid treatments have failed. Last month, a seventy-one-year-old man, given a 10 to 15 percent chance of survival, received five days of court-ordered ivermectin. He pulled out his endotracheal tube within five days and left the hospital two weeks later.
