COVID-19 pill effective in preliminary testing may be 'holy grail' of pandemic, Dr. Marc Siegel says

Dr. Siegel predicts the at-home therapeutic could come to market in four to five months


A new possible medication to treat coronavirus-positive patients could be enough to turn the pandemic on its head, Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegal revealed Sunday on "Fox & Friends Weekend"

First-stage testing of the experimental COVID-19 pill called Molnupiravir, by Merck and Ridgeback Biotherapeutics, showed promising signs of effectiveness in reducing the virus in patients.

"It may be the holy grail on this because it was just studied in phase two trials and it literally stopped the virus in its tracks," he explained. "And there wasn't any virus found in the patients that were studied."

The drug would function as an at-home, five-day treatment, similar to Tamiflu, to stop the virus from reproducing before causing major damage. Siegel said the therapeutic could come to market in as little as four to five months.


The doctor said even though only 182 patients were studied during testing so far, the pill could still be "very promising" for thousands of people.

"This might be the future once the vaccine really gets control over the pandemic and we just start seeing isolated cases," he said. "By then, this drug might be ready and this might be the drug for over the next several months."

Siegel predicted the U.S. will be free of the coronavirus pandemic by the summer, making the Molnupiravir treatment "very helpful" for managing isolated cases.
"This is the very first pill that we have that’s something that we might be able to use in our armamentarium against COVID as a therapeutic," he said.

Finally, justification to keep on lighting up!


The authors asserted:

current smokers have a very much lower probability of developing symptomatic or severe SARS-CoV-2 infection as compared to the general population.

The finding of lower rates of smokers among COVID-19 cases has been more recently described elsewhere, in a rapid review of 28 studies on smoking in COVID-19 patients from various countries.

be nice to see this investigated
eg: does good stuff offer better profilatic protection?
using oneself as the test subject does not work, though I keep trying

been covered, seems a folk remedy

the study I was reading on ivermectin had like a group of 400 or so doctors, all taking it. none contracted covid. the other group that didn't take it had almost a 50% infection rate..... Did they disprove that study or something?

Tp,

Can you post a link to the study that you referenced?

From what I've now read, ivermectin inhibits replication of the virus in lab trials at concentrations that are significantly higher than what is approved for human use.

However, the results of a clinical trial on ~400 adult humans (200 given ivermectin, 198 given a placebo) with mild COVID-19 showed that ivermectin did not produce a significant difference in duration of symptoms vs. the placebo group. In the conclusion, the authors of the study said:

"[FONT=&quot]Among adults with mild COVID-19, a 5-day course of ivermectin, compared with placebo, did not significantly improve the time to resolution of symptoms. The findings do not support the use of ivermectin for treatment of mild COVID-19, although larger trials may be needed to understand the effects of ivermectin on other clinically relevant outcomes.[/FONT]"

love it, like watching a sheep dog work

I've got a Maremma. I think he's just a part-timer. He's supposed to protect the chickens, but the hawks win some of the battles. He's cool though.

Kindest regards,
Kantuck
