OVERVIEW of ivermectin trials
Whether motivated by an abundance of caution, or for less scrupulous reasons, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have, thus far, declined to give Ivermectin a full A-1 approval rating for use in preventing or treating COVID-19, instead upgrading their previously negative recommendation to now neither favoring nor disfavoring Ivermectin to combat COVID-19 outside of clinical trials. Consequently, few medical practices are willing to prescribe Ivermectin for use in preventing or treating COVID-19. However, Ivermectin is readily available for treating humans for parasites (by prescription), or for treating animals for parasites, with no prescription required.
As required by the food and Drug Administration (FDA), each package displays a label warning, "Not for use in humans." This is a label. Not a law.
Referring to Page 24, above, of the FLCCC paper titled "Review of the Emerging Evidence Demonstrating the Efficacy of Ivermectin in the Prophylaxis and Treatment of COVID-19," (linked above,) dosage recommendation to prevent COVID-19 in humans (see page 24), is 0.2 mg/kg body mass. This is equivalent to 0.091 mg/lb. The amount of paste required, which is diluted to only 1.87% Ivermectin, is 0.0049 g/lb body mass. If 1.87% Ivermectin deworming paste is used as the source of Ivermectin, the recommended dose would translate to 0.0049 gram of paste per pound of body weight, meaning, for example, that a 204 lb person's dose would be one gram.
For dispensing with somewhat less precision, the stem of the paste tube plunger is notched at intervals representing 50 lb increments of body weight. A moveable plastic collar can be set to a notch to specify the amount of paste expressed when the plunger is depressed. For example, setting the collar at 4 notches above the tube will yield the correct dosage for person weighing 200 lbs (4 notches X 50 lb body wt. per notch).
PLEASE NOTE: This is for information purposes only, and does not constitute medical advice.
Durvet lists its 1.87% deworming paste as containing the following ingredients:
"Reproductive Toxicity: Suspected of damaging fertility or the unborn child. [NOTE: This is not of general concern for the elderly, who are no longer reproductively active, and who are most susceptible to death by COVID-19]. Specific Target Organ Toxicity (Single Exposure): Not classified. Specific Target Organ Toxicity (Repeated Exposure): May cause damage to organs through prolonged or repeated exposure. Aspiration Hazard: Not classified Symptoms/Injuries After Inhalation: Prolonged exposure may cause irritation. Symptoms/Injuries After Skin Contact: Prolonged exposure may cause skin irritation. Symptoms/Injuries After Eye Contact: May cause slight irritation to eyes. Symptoms/Injuries After Ingestion: This material is harmful orally and can cause adverse health effects or death in significant amounts. Chronic Symptoms: Suspected of damaging fertility or the unborn child. May cause damage to organs through prolonged or repeated exposure."
The following are my own calculations based on the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and package labeling, and may be in error. Corrections are welcome. (Please send corrections to firstname.lastname@example.org.) The Safety Data Sheet identifies the Durvet paste as "acutely toxic" if ingested in quantities exceeding 534.76 mg/kg body weight. To reach acute toxicity, a person weighing 200lbs (90.7kg) would have to swallow (534.76 mg/kg x 90.7kg = 448.5g) of paste. This is (48.5g/6.08g/tube = 8 tubes) of paste. [Thank you for the correction, Nobert David.]
The Safety Data Sheet identifies the ingredients of the Durvet paste as "acutely toxic" if ingested in doses exceeding:
Proprietary Component A............>100 ml/kg. If Component A has density approximating that of water, one g/ml, concentrations greater than 100 g/kg body wt. are toxic. Since paste is 80.98% Component A, the amount of paste per kg body wt. containing a toxic level of Component A would be (100g/kg/81% = 123.5g/kg). A person weighing 200lbs (90.7kg) would have to consume (123.5g/kg x 90.7kg = 11,201g of paste, the amount found in 1,842 Durvet tubes.
Proprietary Component B..........37,605 mg/kg. 37.605g of Component B are found in (37.605g/7.65% = 491.6g paste/kg body weight).To reach acute toxicity, a person weighing 200lbs (90.7kg) would have to ingest (491.6g/kg x 90.7kg = 44,588g of paste), the amount found in (44,588g/6.08g/tube = 7,333 Duret tubes.
Proprietary Component C............3160 mg/kg. ((3160 mg of Component C are found in 3.16g/7.5% = 42.13g paste/kg body weight). To reach acute toxicity, person weighing 200lbs (90.7kg) would have to ingest (42.13g/kg x 90.7kg = 3,821g of paste) the amount found in 628.5 Durvet tubes.
Ivermectin..........................................10 mg/kg. (10mg/kg/0.2 mg/kg= 50 x FLCC recommended dose for preventing or treating COVID-19).
For comparison, the Safety Data Sheet for sodium chloride, https://isolab.ess.washington.edu/safety/sds/sodium_chloride.pdf lists acute toxicity for oral consumption of common table salt (NaCl) as 4 mg/kg for rats, and 8 mg/kg for rabbits. (For ethical reasons, acute toxicity dosage for humans for this and other substances IS NOT TESTED.)
If reasonable use of common table salt is safe for human consumption, how much more should Ivermectin, including Durvet Ivermectin paste with all its listed components?
