Thread: FDA Moves to Prohibit Use of Hydroxychloroquine

    FDA Moves to Prohibit Use of Hydroxychloroquine

    The Food and Drug Administration said in a Monday letter that it has revoked its authorization for the emergency use authorization (EUA) governing the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19.

    The decision – a response to a request by a Health and Human Services official to revoke the EUA – cites “new information, including clinical trial data results,” which have led the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) “to conclude that this drug may not be effective to treat COVID-19 [Coronavirus Disease 2019] and that the drug’s potential benefits for such use do not outweigh its known and potential risks.”

    “Earlier observations of decreased viral shedding with HCQ or CQ treatment have not been consistently replicated and recent data from a randomized controlled trial assessing probability of negative conversion showed no difference between HCQ and standard of care alone,” wrote FDA chief scientists Denise Hinton.

    Of significant note, none of the studies cited include the use of zinc – which has been widely cited as the ‘key’ which HCQ provides a tunnel into cells to halt virus replication.

    In fact, the FDA’s letter doesn’t include the word ‘zinc’ or its symbol, Zn.

    Hours after the FDA revoked its EUA on hydroxychloroquine, the agency dealt another blow to the COVID-19 treatment – warning not to combine the incredibly inexpensive anti-malarial with the incredibly expensive remdesivir; Gilead Sciences’ yet-to-be-priced experimental treatment.

    The agency, based on data from a recent non-clinical study, said the co-administration may result in reduced antiviral activity of remdesivir. It also added it had no such evidence from a clinical setting and that it continues to evaluate all data related to remdesivir.

    FDA said it was no longer reasonable to believe that oral formulations of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine may be effective in treating the illness caused by the novel coronavirus. –Reuters

    In other words, they're basically admitting that hydroxychloroquine is a good treatment.

    All it took just one fake news story to push for a ban on the drug.

    The decision – a response to a request by a Health and Human Services official to revoke the EUA – cites “new information, including clinical trial data results,” which have led the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) “to conclude that this drug may not be effective to treat COVID-19 [Coronavirus Disease 2019] and that the drug’s potential benefits for such use do not outweigh its known and potential risks.”
    Based on which clinical trial data results?

    Yes and they are claiming they want to ban it based on a "clinical trial data" which i doubt even took place at all. They are problary banning the drug because of the fake data which was spurn on CNN,MSNBC etc.

    Of course.

    That's because:


    Fauci: Moderna’s Phase 3 Covid-19 Vaccine Trial Of 30,000 Individuals Will Begin In July

    A phase 3 trial is considered the final stage before potential approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which would make it available for patients across the country. Moderna last week said it began enrolling 600 healthy participants in a phase 2 clinical trial testing mRNA-1273, the company’s vaccine against the virus that causes Covid-19.

    But Fauci confirmed Tuesday the work to begin a much larger phase 3 trial

    I think I started a thread on that the past couple days ago.

    For folks who still haven't figured it out yet... you need to follow the money. Like the millions and millions Trump gave Moderna, Operation Warp Speed, etc... can't let that go to waste.

    Editors of The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine: Pharmaceutical Companies are so Financially Powerful They Pressure us to Accept Papers

    Philippe Douste-Blazy, MD, is a cardiologist and former French Health Minister who served as Under-Secretary General of the United Nations. He was a candidate in 2017 for Director of the World Health Organization.

    In a videotaped interview on May 24, 2020, Dr. Douste-Blazy provided insight into how a series of negative hydroxychloroquine studies got published in prestigious medical journals.

    He revealed that at a recent Chatham House top secret, closed door meeting attended by experts only, the editors of both The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine expressed their exasperation, citing the pressures put on them by pharmaceutical companies.

    He states that each of the editors used the word “criminal” to describe the erosion of science.

    He quotes Dr. Richard Horton who bemoaned the current state of science:

    “If this continues, we are not going to be able to publish any more clinical research data because pharmaceutical companies are so financially powerful; they are able to pressure us to accept papers that are apparently methodologically perfect, but their conclusion is what pharmaceutical companies want.”

    Dr. Douste-Blazy supports the combination treatment –hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and azithromycin (AZ) for Covid-19 recommended by Dr. Didier Raoult. In April, 2020

    Dr. Douste-Blazy started a petition that has been signed by almost 500,000 French doctors and citizens urging French government officials to permit physicians to prescribe hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus patients early, before they require intensive care.

    The issue has become highly politicized; the left-leaning politicians and public health officials are adamantly against the use of HCQ, whereas those leaning toward the right politically are for the right of doctors to prescribe the drug as they see fit.

    The journal SCIENCE described the response to French President Emmanuel Macron trip to Marseille to meet Dr. Raoult who prescribes the combination drug regimen and he has documented their effectiveness.

    However, public health officials, academic physicians and the media – all of who are financially indebted to pharmaceutical companies and their high profit marketing objectives – vehemently oppose the use of HCQ, and use every opportunity to disparage the drug by derisively referring to President Trump as its booster.

    HCQ and Chloroquine can definitely be legally prescribed for Covid use by US physicians
    POTUS news conference, FOX NEWS ~4:05 pm
    Reporter just asked POTUS about the recent FDA notice on hydroxychlorine
    That it's [supposedly] "no longer considered as a reasonable treatment for Covid"

    POTUS defers to Sec'y Alex Azar:
    Azar:
    To clarify your stmt, which is not quite accurate:
    The FDA withdrew an emergency use authorization of chloroquine from Bayer mfg'd in Pakistan -
    where emergency authorization was restricted to hospital use only
    So they took the emergency use only authorization off.
    "At this point HCQ and chloroquine are just like any other approved drug in the United States
    they may be used in hospitals, they may be used in out-patients, they may be used at home"
    "all subject to a doctor's prescription."


    Furthermore, says that it's good that the emergency use authorization was removed,
    because it had been widely misinterpreted as saying that
    these drugs could ONLY be use in-hospital when this was NOT true.

    Emergency use authorization allows for MORE widespread use of a drug not approved for certain conditions. I need to see the whole interview to get the context here, but saying that removing the FDA EUA means it can be used more than before is 100% BS (if that is what he is claiming).

    Directly from the FDA website:

    On June 15, 2020, based on FDA’s continued review of the scientific evidence available for hydroxychloroquine sulfate (HCQ) and chloroquine phosphate (CQ) to treat COVID-19, FDA has determined that the statutory criteria for EUA as outlined in Section 564(c)(2) of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act are no longer met. Specifically, FDA has determined that CQ and HCQ are unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA. Additionally, in light of ongoing serious cardiac adverse events and other serious side effects, the known and potential benefits of CQ and HCQ no longer outweigh the known and potential risks for the authorized use. This warrants revocation of the EUA for HCQ and CQ for the treatment of COVID-19.

    Also, nobody gives a crap about what Azar says on TV. This is published in the federal register, and will be used to limit its distribution by pharmacies, which was already happening. So even if a doctor wants to prescribe it, he/she may not be able to find a pharmacy willing to dispense it unless the doctor proves it is NOT for COVID19.

    Yeah, and they're not the only ones. 3 in the U.S., one in the UK, and at least one in China, among others.

    As COVID Vaccines Head into Phase 3 Trials Big Pharma Prepares for Increase in Flu Vaccines for Fall

    An article published in FiercePharma, a pharmaceutical marketing trade publication, is reporting that the National Institute of Health is preparing to test experimental COVID vaccines entering into phase 3 of development on over 90,000 people this summer.

    The three drug companies entering phase 3 trials are Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.

    As leading coronavirus vaccines make their way through early stages of human testing, the NIH is plotting much larger efficacy studies this summer. U.S. researchers plan to run phase 3 trials of vaccines from Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson in the coming months, the Wall Street Journal reports.

    The NIH intends to start a phase 3 trial of Moderna’s vaccine in July, followed by an August trial of AstraZeneca’s vaccine and a September study of Johnson & Johnson’s shot, a U.S. government researcher told the newspaper.

    All three of the shots are based on brand-new technologies, and they’re all reportedly among finalists in the Operation Warp Speed program. Former FDA chief Scott Gottlieb has publicly questioned the picks, pointing out the team’s reliance on new technologies.

    The government-funded phase 3 studies will enroll about 30,000 people each, testing the vaccines against placebo in places where the virus is circulating, WSJ reports. The aim is to see whether the candidates can protect vaccinated individuals against infection.

    Aside from the NIH plans, Pfizer could start a phase 3 trial as early as next month, a source told the WSJ. Down the road, the NIH could launch studies of other vaccines, John Mascola, the head of NIAID’s vaccine research center, told the publication. Anthony Fauci, head of the NIAID, said at BIO’s digital conference Tuesday he expects “more than one” vaccine to succeed.
    Given the recent bad publicity Moderna received from the small sample size tested so far (see: COVID Experimental Vaccine Victim Claims “Sickest in His Life” after Being Injected with Experimental Vaccine), one has to wonder if the drug companies will be transparent in releasing the results of these trials, both negative and any positive outcomes.

    Given the fact that the U.S. taxpayers are picking up the tab on these trials, the companies have a legal and moral obligation to be transparent in the results of these trials.

    More Flu Shots – More Ways to Get it Fall 2020

    Meanwhile, flu vaccine manufacturers are already preparing for this fall’s flu season and planning on manufacturing more flu vaccines than they did last year.

    Manufacturers distributed about 170 million flu vaccine doses to the U.S. last year. This year, they’re aiming to increase that by about 20 million, Elaine O’Hara, Sanofi Pasteur’s North America head of commercial operations, told FiercePharma. Vaccine makers are already producing their doses, with plans to start shipping later this summer.

    Sanofi is getting ready to ship up to 80 million flu vaccine doses this year, she said—an increase from 70 million last year. Seqirus shipped 52 million doses last year, and it’s planning to increase that number by about 10% for the coming season, Ross said. GlaxoSmithKline, the third major flu vaccine player, shipped 46 million doses last year and is planning to ship 50 million this year, a spokesman said.

    According to FiercePharma, the manufacturers are looking at “creative ways” of injecting more people, by setting up mobile clinics in parking lots, parks or community centers. I would not be surprised to see them giving them out in churches and other religious institutions as well.

    What changes can Americans expect changes to routine flu vaccinations this year? They could include clinics set up in parking lots, parks or community centers to allow for appropriate distancing between people. Plus, flu vaccinations could start earlier and go later than usual, Ross said.

    Experts want to do whatever it takes to make sure flu vaccines aren’t wasted, O’Hara said. During the H1N1 pandemic, many doses were eventually discarded, she said.

    “We’re really trying to prevent that from happening,” she said.

    It has always been able to be prescribed in what is referred to as "off label" prescriptions. If any drug is tested and approved for one condition, doctors are allowed to prescribe it for other conditions at their will as an off label prescription.

    Here is what the FDA said from their FAQ:

    Q. Why did FDA grant the EUA for hydroxychloroquine sulfate (HCQ) and chloroquine phosphate (CQ) for the treatment of COVID-19 initially?

    A. On March 28, 2020, BARDA requested and FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for emergency use of oral formulations of chloroquine phosphate (CQ) and hydroxychloroquine sulfate (HCQ) for the treatment of COVID-19. Based on the scientific information available to FDA as of that date, the Agency determined that CQ and HCQ may be effective in treating COVID-19 and that the known and potential benefits of CQ and HCQ outweighed the known and potential risks for this use. The agency limited the use of authorized products to adults and adolescents who weigh 50 kg (approximately 110 pounds) or more, who were hospitalized with COVID-19, and for whom participation in a clinical trial was not available, or participation was not feasible.
    So even the EUA only covered specific uses.

    Now, if a doctor is even able to get a hold of this stuff and prescribe it for anything other than what it is approved for, and anything happens to the patient, they can be sued big time.

    Most doctors will not take that chance....

    It seems that the main effect is that the government will no longer be distributing the drug (for free?) as an emergency measure.

    The move means that shipments of the drugs obtained by the federal government will no longer be distributed to state and local health authorities for use against the coronavirus. The drugs are still available for alternate uses, so U.S. doctors could still prescribe them for COVID-19 — a practice known as off-label prescribing.

    The Income Tax Is An Excise, And Excise Taxes Are Privilege Taxes

    The Federalist Papers, No. 15:

    Except as to the rule of appointment, the United States have an indefinite discretion to make requisitions for men and money; but they have no authority to raise either by regulations extending to the individual citizens of America.

    Thanks. So it was to "clear up the confusion" that people thought hydroxychloroquine could only be used in hospitals??

    I was never "confused" about that, and since Trump himself was taking it and was not in a hospital, I don't know why that was "confusing."

    The FDA's published comments on this are clear:

    On June 15, 2020, based on FDA’s continued review of the scientific evidence available for hydroxychloroquine sulfate (HCQ) and chloroquine phosphate (CQ) to treat COVID-19, FDA has determined that the statutory criteria for EUA as outlined in Section 564(c)(2) of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act are no longer met.

    Specifically, FDA has determined that CQ and HCQ are unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA. Additionally, in light of ongoing serious cardiac adverse events and other serious side effects, the known and potential benefits of CQ and HCQ no longer outweigh the known and potential risks for the authorized use. This warrants revocation of the EUA for HCQ and CQ for the treatment of COVID-19.
    This, combined with their recommendation NOT to combine hydroxychloroquine with Remdesivir, is clearly designed to scare doctors into not prescribing it.

    This benefits China and other investors.

    FDA could care less about people's health when using certain products. They are there to ensure people remain as sick as possible and use as many deep state/globalist invested stocks and medical advances as possible to prop themselves up while leaving the plebs and peasants in the dust fending for themselves.

    Thanks again FDA for showing what your true motives are to the world. The red pilling continues.

    Stupid.

    Doctors will continue to prescribe it because it works and works well.
    @Ehanced_Deficit's real agenda on RPF is to troll:

    Nobody spends this much time copy & pasting the same recycled links, photos & talking points. Does anybody even know where this troll stands on any issue?

    7 years and 25k posts later, the forum still does nothing & members still think they're replying to real posts
