Small RCT comparing ivermectin 6mg & 12mg q84hr with lopinavir/ritonavir, showing a statistically significant and dose dependent effect of ivermectin on reducing the time to PCR-.
Babalola et al., 1/6/2021, Double Blind Randomized Controlled Trial, Nigeria, Africa, peer-reviewed, baseline oxygen requirements 8.3%, 10 authors, dosage 12mg or 6mg q84h for two weeks, this trial compares with another treatment - results may be better when compared to placebo.
adjusted risk of viral+ at day 5, 63.9% lower, RR 0.36, p = 0.11, treatment 40, control 20, adjusted per study.
risk of no virological cure, 58.0% lower, RR 0.42, p = 0.01, treatment 20, control 20, 12mg - Cox proportional hazard model.
risk of no virological cure, 40.5% lower, RR 0.60, p = 0.12, treatment 20, control 20, 6mg - Cox proportional hazard model.
time to viral-, 49.2% lower, relative time 0.51, treatment 20, control 20, 12mg.
time to viral-, 34.4% lower, relative time 0.66, treatment 20, control 20, 6mg.
Effect extraction follows pre-specified rules
prioritizing more serious outcomes. For an individual study the most serious
outcome may have a smaller number of events and lower statistical signficance,
however this provides the strongest evidence for the most serious outcomes
when combining the results of many trials.
