Small RCT with 4 control patients and 28 ivermectin patients split across 3 different dosage levels, showing lower (non-statistically significant) ICU admission with treatment. Authors suggest that ivermectin for SARS-CoV-2 is safe and reduces symptoms and viral load. They note that ivermectin’s antiviral effect appear to be dose-dependent. NCT04431466.

Pott-Junior et al., 3/9/2021, Randomized Controlled Trial, Brazil, South America, peer-reviewed, 10 authors, dosage 200μg/kg single dose, dose varies in three arms 100, 200, 400μg/kg.
risk of ICU admission, 85.2% lower, RR 0.15, p = 0.25, treatment 1 of 27 (3.7%), control 1 of 4 (25.0%).
relative improvement in Ct value, 0.8% lower, RR 0.99, p = 1.00, treatment 27, control 3.
risk of no virological cure, 11.1% higher, RR 1.11, p = 1.00, treatment 10 of 27 (37.0%), control 1 of 3 (33.3%).
time to viral-, 16.7% lower, relative time 0.83, treatment 27, control 3.

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.
