Massive hydroxychloroquine study raising health concerns about the drug under scrutiny from scientists

Massive hydroxychloroquine study raising health concerns about the drug under scrutiny from scientists

A massive study that raised health concerns over hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malaria drug touted by President Trump as a coronavirus treatment, is coming under scrutiny from scientists who are demanding to see the data behind it.

The scientists expressed concerns over a high-profile study from The Lancet, which surveyed 96,000 hospitalized COVID-19 patients across six continents and concluded that the drug was ineffective in fighting the coronavirus and caused serious heart problems and even death for patients who had the disease.

An open letter from more than 180 scientists around the world raised concerns over what they said was inconsistent data in the report, noting that the average daily doses of hydroxychloroquine were higher than the those recommended by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

They also pointed out that data the magazine said was from Australian patients did not seem to match data from the Australian government, among other things.

Another major concern was that the study's authors did not release their code or data despite signing a pledge to share information on the coronavirus.

The report "has led many researchers around the world to scrutinize in detail the publication in question. This scrutiny has raised both methodological and data integrity concerns," the scientists wrote, adding that they were asking the Lancet to make available the peer review process that "led to this manuscript being accepted for publication."

The report's research team corrected some of its data Friday but maintained its conclusions had not changed.

**************************************************

So a large "study" was faked to arrive at a conclusion that they wanted to achieve regardless of the real data. This sounds familiar.

You just have to go along with everything Trump says, don't you MM?  Your fearless leader can never be wrong about anything because you are at war with 55% of the people in your own country.

I think it's  obvious that drugs have different effects on people who have different diseases.

Hydroxychloroquine has been shown to be questionably ineffective -- too all the way of being dangerous for people with covid-19.

Having said that, it's obvious that covid-19 is not the same disease as malaria.

Patients with different diseases may require different medications and cures.

Donald ”Stupid” Trump  boasted of taking it.  Since he lies so much you can’t tell if this is true.  However, among the lockestep braindead kool-aid drinking lemmings among his base, many think this is a good thing to take for Covid-19.   The limited tests shows that this is not something that should be done for this disease, whether it is effective for lupus or malaria.   He is pushing something that may be harmful to his base.
