The latest Covid-19 drug studied by AstraZeneca failed to achieve its main goals in its latest study, the pharmaceutical group said Tuesday, all taken up by the FT.
The Phase 3 AZD442 treatment study, designed to prevent people infected with the Sars-Cov-2 virus from developing Covid-19, found it was not significantly more effective than placebo. The treatment should not be confused with the company's vaccines, which are used worldwide to protect themselves from the coronavirus, but which have reported limited effectiveness, especially against the Indian variant, in the face of some non-secondary contraindications.
However, according to the company, AZD442's results were slightly more encouraging when the drug was given to patients who had not yet been infected, making it at best a mild preventative. Mene Pangalos, executive vice president of biopharmaceutical research and development, said, "While this study did not meet the primary goal against symptomatic disease, we are encouraged by the protection seen in PCR negative participants after treatment with AZD7442."
In the meantime, a study published in Nature , but which will be perfectly ignored by both EMA, AIFA, and Facebook, which continues its censorship, scientifically explains what the function of Ivermectin is at the cellular level and how this therefore manages to block the formation of the famous "Cytokine Storm" which is the cause of the most serious prognosis related to Covid-19. Ivermectin inhibits and disrupts the binding of the SARS-CoV-2 S protein to ACE-2 receptors. A research published in a prestigious magazine, but which, you will see, will have no effect, beyond scientific knowledge, because behind it there is no Big Pharma to invest. Without profits, lives are not saved, even if possible.
