COVID-19 Ivermectin Triple Therapy Protocol released to GPs

Australian GPs can lawfully prescribe the treatment.

Triple therapy specialist Professor Thomas Borody has issued a Triple Therapy Protocol (Ivermectin, Zinc and Doxycycline) for COVID-19 to Australian GPs, allowing them to lawfully prescribe the drug to COVID-19 positive patients, or as a potential preventive measure. 

Prof. Borody, an internationally regarded physician renowned for his groundbreaking triple antibiotic therapy for peptic ulcers in 1987, said that the drug Ivermectin should be actively pursued by the Australian Government.

Ivermectin was discovered in the 1970s and is on the World Health Organization (WHO) list of essential medicines, Borody believes the drug should be administered to the infected elderly and front line workers as soon as possible.

“No trial has shown Ivermectin-based therapy to be ineffective. In fact, international data reports an almost 100 percent cure rate and symptom improvement within 4-6 days,” he said.

“An Ivermectin tablet can cost as little as $2, which could make it by far the cheapest, safest, and fastest cure for Australians and the Australian economy.”

Borody, who holds over 150 patients, founded the Centre for Digestive Diseases (CDD) in 1984 after an acclaimed career with prominent hospitals such as St Vincent’s in Sydney and the Mayo Clinic in the USA.

The Australian medical system must continue to lead the way in looking for alternate strategies in treating the Coronavirus strain according to Borody, who insists that we can no longer wait on a vaccine to be the ‘deus ex machina’.

“We have a therapy that can fight COVID-19. The medications have been around for 50 years, they are cheap, FDA and TGA approved and have an outstanding safety profile,” he said. 

“Why are we just waiting around for a vaccine? To save lives we should be using whatever is safe and available right now. We could lead the world in this fight.”

Borody urged fellow Physicians to contact him via email for further information regarding dosage and protocols for the encouraging yet inconclusive treatment, stating that the therapy must be taken seriously while we continue to work towards a potential vaccine for wider immunity.

“The three medications are now on chemist shelves right now and GPs can email to obtain the dosing protocol and COVID-19 treatment information for their patients,” he said. 

“GPs can legally prescribe the therapy today as an ‘off label’ treatment according to Australian Guidelines, a standard practice in medicine.”

The Ivermectin connection was first discovered by Dr Kylie Wagstaff’s team at Monash University in April and there are now currently 28 Covid-19 Ivermectin treatment studies running globally.
