Additional Research Postulates Hydroxychloroquine gives no relief to Coronavirus victims.
Further confirmation is materializing to highlight the ineffectiveness of the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine for Coronavirus victims.
A survey which was printed in ‘The New England Journal of Medicine’ has revealed that hydroxychloroquine either administered alone or together with azithromycin has no positive effect in improving the medical state of Coronavirus victims on admission in the hospital.
This survey was led by scientists in Brazil, on 504 victims whose Coronavirus status had been established that were neither in need of back-up oxygen nor got close to four liters of oxygen per minute. The survey was carried out across board 55 hospitals in Brazil.
The victims were casually allotted to get either of the following levels of care: 400 milligrams of hydroxychloroquine 2 times a day; or 400 milligrams of hydroxychloroquine 2 times a day along with 500 milligrams of azithromycin once a day for one week. The scientists later evaluated the response of the victims after 15 days.
The survey revealed that neither the lone use of hydroxychloroquine nor its combination with azithromycin had any positive impact on the health status of the Coronavirus victims after 15 days. Furthermore, recurrent abnormal heart tempo was observed along with an increase in liver-enzyme volume in victims treated with lone hydroxychloroquine given along with azithromycin. The research was sponsored by EMS Pharma and Coalition Covid-19 Brazil.
Various researches have seen no merits in treating Coronavirus victims with the anti-malarial medication though President Trump once recommended hydroxychloroquine for treating victims with Coronavirus; referring to the fact that he took it to forestall infection.
The emergency authorization for the use of hydroxychloroquine and a corresponding drug, chloroquine, in the treatment of the Coronavirus was immediately annulled by the US Food and Drug Administration explaining that the drugs are incapable of curing the victims of the virus according to the current research’s revelation.
