Chamie-Quintero et al., OSF Preprints (Preprint) Ivermectin for COVID-19 in Peru: 14-fold reduction in nationwide excess deaths, p=.002 for effect by state, then 13-fold increase after ivermectin use restricted
Analysis of ivermectin use in Peru concluding that ivermectin most likely caused a 14 times reduction in excess deaths in Peru, prior to a 13 times increase after reversal of ivermectin use. Authors conclude that the results strongly suggest that ivermectin can complement vaccination. They note that the potential mechanism of action, competitive binding with the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, is likely to be non-epitope specific, possibly maintaining efficacy against emerging mutant strains.
