FDA Must Approve
Hydroxychloroquine Now

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 3/22/2020 8:29:18 AM

You are being lied to about the drugs that heal COVID19. America's FDA, and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, are dragging their feet on approving a drug that provides very strong positive effect on COVID19. (snip) Fauci is taking the position that he and the US government should not approve Hydroxychloroquine because it might not be safe and might not be effective, based on his smear of high-quality science as mere anecdote.

Comments:

Fauci is absolutely wrong to call the evidence "anecdotal." Other nations have adopted the drug he is delaying, to excellent effect.

Fauci is a Hillary loving Democrat bureaucrat who is 79 years old and should have retired a decade ago. If President Trump keeps relying on his "advice" and that of the FDA - we are all screwed, the economy ruined and no second term for Trump. So next year when there is another strain of some flu or virus coming from China, we all locked down again? Europe survived the Black Death and this is not the plague.

The question I have for Dr. Anthony Fauci is...So what? So what if it's only anecdotal evidence. The stuff is well-known, any side effects well-documented, and the Government has whipped people into a frenzy that is evidenced by such as the run on TP, the hoarding of canned goods, and the closing or severe curtailment of businesses...despite few cases of actual COVID-19. ("Infections" does not mean one is sick. See Tom Hanks or Prince Albert for how the numbers are misleading.) The use of hydroxychloroquine should simply and immediately be allowed if not approved for COVID-19 prevention and/or treatment.

Not true! The evidence that plaquenil and chloroquine benefit patients is no more than suggestive. We can complete several blinded randomized trial in about a week. Doctors are perfectly free to prescribe these drugs without FDA approval in the interim if they chose. There are thousands of analogues of these drugs that may be far more effective. Let’s wait for proof before making idiots of ourselves!

Watching this guy's reaction yesterday to President Trump's use of the phrase " Deep State Department" is all I needed to know about his agenda . Looks and sounds like a cross between Robert Reich and Professor Irwin Cory. Knowing that he admires Hillary Clinton is all we need to know about this 'man'.

Yes, I remember when retuxamimb was the greatest cure for advanced breast cancer ever. So much so, that it was pushed as standard of care treatmemt. Congress made it Federal law that insurance companies had to pay for it in breast cancer treatment (still a law). ANd when randomize studies came out, guess what, it killed more women and than those not taking it. The FDA even reversed its approval for breast cancer. For generations medicine has tried to find that one miricle drug that will blunt the sepsis mechanism and lead to improved survivial. Some efforts did no good at all. Some made things worse and killed more people than the disease itself. The experience in NOLA with this combination of drugs for Covid-Insane hasn't lived up to the hype from this one anecdotal study in France. If one wants to be part of an experiemental protocol with this combination, fine, go for it. But to say this is a standard of cae without any knowledge of its effectiveness, side effects, and proven benefits is cavalier.

I want this message to go to Dr. Anthony Fauci. I have been calling him Antonio so I apologize. Americans are resilient and we aren't going collapse and fall like you, the media, Democrats, and Never Trumpers want us to. Our foundation is in God and he is bigger than any of you. We know what you are trying to do. Approve it. You had no problem during the H1N1 and Ebola outbreaks. Read Job again in the Bible. We all know what we can be during prosperous times but we really find out what we are made of during trouble times. President Trump and Vice President Pence are showing us their leadership. My foundation is in God not your gods.

Safety First! What is "safe"? Stay in your house to be "safe"... Stay in your house long enough, you starve to death. What is "safe"? Is safety the most important thing in the universe? Did hundred of thousand of Americans die over 200 years so you could be "safe"? Narcissism is a dangerous thing. Never far away, and easily manipulated by those with hidden motives. "After years of Safety First indoctrination, and a front row seat to it's unintended consequences, “Safety Third,” became a slightly subversive way for my crew and I to remind each other that our safety was in fact, our responsibility, and that no amount of compliance could ever keep us out of danger. Safety, I argued, was not a value to be “ranked,” but rather, a state of mind to be maintained. Thus, “Safety Third” became an hour-long special that stirred up a great deal of conversation around personal responsibility, risk equilibrium, and the unintended consequences of ranking Safety above everything else. " Read it all: https://www.facebook.com/TheRealMikeRowe/posts/3119126308097491 Safety Third! Thanks Mike.

Here is what I think the FDA and Fauci would respond to this argument. The Gautret study was non-randomized and open label. That means that the researchers picked which patients would get the real treatment and which would get the control. History is full of examples of clinical researchers introducing intentional or inadvertent bias in this process to get the results they want especially when the stakes are as high as preventing a pandemic. Although I doubt this happened and the results are reproducible in a true RCT study, it is a matter of principle to scientists that you must prove something using the gold standard of a randomized placebo controlled trial with a statistically significant number of trial subjects before you can call a therapy safe and effective. In the mean time, given the good safety profile of hydroxychloroquine with azithromycin it should be approved by doctors off label under the compassionate use provisions of the law.

Okay, hydroxychloroquine is safe for consumption. So, what would be the worse thing that could happen if given to coronavirus patients? Really, nothing. The only thing that could really happen is put a end to Dr. Fauci 15 minutes of fame. I say it's time to put this man in a closet again where NO ONE can get access to him.

we all should take a collective deep breath here. Dr. Fauci is a lab rat, whose job it is to drag his feet, looking for substantial scientific evidence before giving blanket approval for a particular form of treatment. It would be possible for two separate drugs, each safe by itself, to be dangerous in combination. that happened with a diet drug, phentermine,back in the 1980s,and an anti-depression drug. when combined, the product was dangerous. there is evidence available by identifying those who are taking hydroxochloroquine, like Mrs. Lakerman, for rheumatoid arthritis, and examining their incidence and recovery from Kung Flu. computerization would allow this, along with a change in privacy laws. and the focus could be on NYC pharmacies. As for the Chinese physicians and their treatment modes, it is difficult to trust them, given their government meddling with them.

Looked up side effects :"Taking hydroxychloroquine long-term or at high doses may cause irreversible damage to the retina of your eye. Stop taking this medicine and call your doctor at once if you have trouble focusing, if you see light streaks or flashes in your vision, or if you notice any swelling or color changes in your eyes." No hydroxychloroquine for me. I already have Macular Degeneration with visual symptoms.

The FDA has ruled the pharmaceutical industry with an iron fist for years to the point where they dictate how computer software is written and who has access to data. The end result is exhorbitant profits, enough to spread around to companies like Merck, Phizer, J&J, etc., hospitals, doctors, pharmacies, insurance companies and of course, the tax man. It's hard to break free of a bureaucracy like that because it is in their blood. They claim the profits are justified but just look at their corporate headquarters, gymnasiums, on-site child care, perfectly landscaped grounds, office furnishings, corporate helicopters, CEOs pulling in double-digit millions in salary and perks and you can see nothing but money.

The anti-malarial drugs in question are already approved, and are in fact “old.” There is plenty of data out there on them. Doctors should be able to use them “off label” safely. Let’s see if they really do work.

No question this information is NOT anecdotal, it is a small study, without some of the normal scientific requirements, which limit it's certainty. I think Trump recently got a new law passed called "right to try" experimental drugs. Why can't this be under that system? I'll play devil's advocate here for a bit. The normal standard is a double blind (neither the doc or the patient know which drug is which), random test. This test being referred to was "open-label, non random", so the docs and patients knew that they were getting a new treatment. There is extremely well established proof of placebo effect in non-random, non-blind tests. Tell a patient that he is getting a new miracle drug, and magically, a certain number just get well.....even on sugar pills. The fact that this had 100% good outcomes is helpful in pressing the case that it is a real effect. All that said, the drug has been around for a long time, has been used for chronic disease, is apparently extremely well known to be "generally safe". That at least partially eliminates the biggest boogeyman in testing new drugs, you are, in this case, very unlikely to kill someone with the drug. Next is "does it work"? It seems very reasonable to put some caveats around this and approve it for use in some sort of a "large scale testing" mode, with clear notification of patients that this IS NOT A PROVEN, GUARANTEED SAFE TREATMENT, and that they can choose whether to get it or not, with the risk on them. Require a signed consent. But, get the damned FDA bureaucrats out of the way. It is still entirely possible that this will be proven to be only moderately effective, or even, possibly, ineffective. But it could be very effective and save a bunch of lives. I can tell you that if I get this, I will be lobbying my doc to try it.

#6, #14: I have taken this drug in the past for RA. It is affordable and has been in use for 70 years. Yes, long term use of this drug can, in rare cases, cause eye damage. That is why rheumatologists require baseline vision tests for people taking it long term so they can catch vision changes and stop taking the drug. The damage is not sudden onset. Nowhere have I seen that people will need to take this drug as long term therapy for the China Virus. The “Malaria drug” headline conjures up all kinds of scary images for people and that’s exactly why the press is using that term. Fortunately, this drug is one of the most well researched drugs ever, given its long history. The same cannot always be said for countless other drugs millions of people take every day without a second thought. Common sense must prevail here!

An earlier story explained that President Trump made his fortune by demanding results from his people. He should replace Fauci, who it seems is now nothing more than a bureaucrat, not doing much actual work in the field. Foot-dragging and bureaucratic process has it's (limited) place, but right now we need more action! We need fresh blood in all our agencies.

With patient approval, give it to people with serious symptoms and also to those with emerging symptoms. See what happens. The false response that some placebo's cause for certain conditions is probably not much of an issue for a viral infection. Say it only works for on 50% of the people who get it. Isn't that pretty good? It doesn't mean that other medications can't continue to be tested or developed. If we COULD have an immediate, highly effective, low complication, low cost, solution for this virus, isn't it worth trying it? You don't even need FDA "approval" just acceptance that the drug is safe for people testing positive for the Chinese virus with some known side effects and with effectiveness still under evaluation. Think of it like this. A man has fallen through the ice on a lake. All you have is a ball of heavy twine. You're not sure the twine is strong enough to pull the guy out. A friend runs back to get a rope but it will be 15 minutes before he gets back and the guy will likely have drowned by then. Do you not use the twine because it might not work or do you give it a try? Duh! Bureaucrats would let the guy drown because the twine is not rated for such rescue work.

#14... about blindness with hydroxycholorquine. I'm an optometrist and we follow patients yearly or more frequently for ocular side effects of hydroxy (Plaquenil). It takes years of unattended use of Plaquenil to cause retinal toxicity. Taking it for several weeks or months will not cause retinal toxicity.. and if you really already have macular degeneration and have lost central vision.. you have nothing more to lose... For me... given the choice of painful death or loss of central vision, I'd take loss of central vision before I would die.

Quite a rant. Yes, Fauci should have said "investigational" instead of "anecdotal", and lost some crredibility as a result. But if you read the Belgian guidelines, they only want it to be used on patients who have been hospitalized already. Which is a little late if the problem is lack of hospital beds (although obviously reduction in length of stay, not to mention mortality, would be a very good thing). Anyway, with all that's happening, if the drug really works as hoped, we'll know very quickly. And you can bet that DJT will steamroller any FDA foot-dragging.

Having sold Plaquenil (and chlorquine) in a past life, the major side effect is macular degeneration. The labeling on the product clearly states that patients should be tested for this at the time they start taking the drug and at least annually. Of course, that's for the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis, a chronic condition. Probably would be a good idea to have an eye test anyway to rule out any pre-existing condition, but as I understand it, the use of this drug and the arthrimoax (antibiotic) is a short term issue, only a few days or weeks of treatment. Both those drugs are anti-malarial. Their RA effects were found when missionaries, sent to Africa and other areas with the drug, that had RA felt a relief of their RA. When the missionaries returned home and stopped the anti-malarial drugs, their symptoms returned. When they resumed taking the drugs, the symptoms were lessened.

The FDA needs to be abolished. It's been corrupt to the hilt for decades, as Congress-critters' use it for the personal "ATM" with 'insider trading' bonuses. The FDA does nothing but slow down deployment of much needed drugs. But here's the main reason for shutting it down: "FDA Approval" does NOT eliminate remove the threat that a drug manufacturer can be sued. If having FDA Approval could indemnify from lawsuits then the FDA would add value, but it doesn't. Bottom line is that "big-Pharma" has a much higher exposure to lawsuits in today's litigious environment which keeps them on the straight and narrow. Let the FDA go after the snake-oil hucksters, but leave the major drug companies alone to quickly churn out new medicines in times of crisis.

In the world of politics, repetition is almost without fail the key to winning elections. The dominant campaign issue in the upcoming election that President Trump, the Republican Party and the conservative media must relentlessly repeat is the now irrefutable fact that Joe Biden, the Democrat party and the mainstream media have tacitly sanctioned sedition and have betrayed the American people. Consequently, if Biden and the Democrats win in November, they will be incapable of preventing the Marxist ultimatums of the radical left from becoming the law of the land.

Justice Gorsuch wrote a one-paragraph dissent attacking the Supreme Court’s decision to reject a Nevada church’s emergency application. The application sought an injunction stopping the Governor of Nevada from shutting down meaningful church services, even as he allowed vast assemblies at casinos, movie theaters, and other secular sites. What should be more important than a pithy dissent, though, is the Supreme Court’s – and, more specifically, Chief Justice Roberts's -- appalling behavior. It is another reminder of how desperately important it is to return President Trump to the White House.

The United States, the last great hope of millions upon millions of refugees, is under siege from within. It appears that in this world, as Americans, we really are on our own. Now what? Is there more than one way to be prepared? Is there any way to be truly prepared? The following are just some options.

Jeb Bush once rebuked candidate Trump by sneering that the plain-speaking New Yorker couldn't insult his way to the White House. Of course, Jeb! was wrong! (snip) What President Trump has always understood, and what the Democrats have found too difficult to grasp, is that the "art of the insult" works only when you target the small number of people with all the power, not the great majority of Americans with no power at all. Hillary Clinton called half of America "deplorable" and "irredeemable," and Pennsylvanians, Wisconsinites, and Michiganders knew she was talking about them. Jemele Hill is certain that every single Trump voter is inherently racist

Recently, Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity awkwardly collided during the nightly handoff between their respective shows. (snip) This curious incident is yet another example of the growing divide between conservatives who are willing and able to engage in the current ideological conflict and those who are still "fighting the last war." Hannity and his ilk like the overwrought, elderly Sheriff Bell in the film No Country for Old Men find themselves completely outmatched by a new species of adversary who eschews all the old well known patterns of behavior.

Former Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), a conservative champion unjustly convicted and imprisoned on questionable campaign finance charges, faces what amounts to the death penalty thanks to outrageous behavior within the Federal Bureau of Prisons. (snip) Steve is the only over-60 diabetic prisoner remaining at the Beaumont, Texas federal prison facility, which also has the highest per capita COVID-19 infection rate of any prison in the country. And he’s been told by prison officials he will not be leaving on orders “straight from the top” in Washington!!! It’s clear someone wants him dead. Someone in Washington is ordering that his life not be saved by being released to home detention.

The premeditated attack by violent leftists on Sunday that shut down a pro-police rally in Denver, injuring several of the speakers, is not being forgotten. Yesterday, Michelle Malkin, the best known invited speaker who was roughed up and had to run for her life to safety, filed a formal Colorado Open Records Act Request addressed to the Denver Police Department. (snip) the Denver police did nothing to stop the leftist mob from attacking and shutting down the legal pro-police rally, allowing mayhem, injuries, and the squelching of free speech to go forward unchecked.

Admiration for George W. Bush doesn’t win you much praise in today’s Republican Party, but I don’t care. On Thursday former President George W. Bush attended and delivered a speech at the late Congressman John Lewis’s funeral. George W. Bush had every reason not to attend Lewis’s funeral, let alone eulogize him. Lewis may have been a famed civil rights leader, but he was also a bitter partisan Democrat congressman, who boycotted both of Bush’s inaugurations. Bush barely mentioned the political division between him and Lewis. “John and I had our disagreements of course,” Bush said.

Well, it may be time to deploy the military to Seattle after all because what local lawmakers are doing is nothing short of allowing the city to be engulfed in violence and anarchy. They’re moving to abolish the police. It’s not defunding. It’s a total dissolution. Non-profit programs and “community-led activities” will replace policing. Why? Well, according to the resolution, the Seattle Police Department perpetuates racism and violence. Oh, yes, and it’s a vehicle of white supremacy. It's typical 'woke' nonsense, and it's a cancer that's killing America.

“And I say … segregation today … segregation tomorrow … segregation forever.” Fifty-seven years ago, the newly sworn-in Democrat governor of Alabama, George Wallace, delivered those words in his inaugural address. In other words: George Wallace, who was a product of a political party that built its political power by supporting every imaginable policy that divided Americans by race, was at it again. Using the momentary pulpit that was a governor’s inaugural to play the race card — again. Yesterday there was a new George Wallace. He appeared in an Atlanta church to eulogize the late Democratic Congressman John Lewis, Lewis a certifiable hero of the 1960s civil rights movement.

The U.S. Postal Service is experiencing days-long backlogs of mail, sparking fears the problem could continue into November and affect the election. Additionally, an internal report from the postal service warned almost half the states are not providing adequate time for workers to deliver ballots ahead of the election. Several states affected are battleground ones that could decide if Donald Trump or Joe Biden is the next president and it's big cities—which are hot beds of Democratic voters—that will likely be most affected.(Snip) An internal report from the Postal Service warned there are 24 states with deadlines close enough
The Democrats Surrender in Portland 24 replies

The Democrats’ surrender in Portland, coming so precipitously after the appearance by Attorney General Barr before the Judiciary Committee in the House, looks like a favorable development, insofar as it goes. It may be too soon for victory to be declared by America’s government and other allies of moderation, law, and order. We’d like to think, though, that the capitulation in Portland suggests that principle can prevail. The deal was struck Wednesday, the day after Mr. Barr laid down the law before the House Judiciary Committee: “Since when is it okay to try and burn down a federal court,”
Remembering my friend Herman Cain —
businessman, media personality and unlikely politician

Herman Cain, who died Thursday after being hospitalized for coronavirus, was Trump before Trump. I first met Herman Cain in 2011, when he was running for the Republican nomination for president. He was the Donald Trump candidate before Trump: a successful businessman, a Washington outsider, a larger-than-life personality with an extraordinary story. In those days the only people who dared run for president were governors or Washington insiders. So when Herman Cain threw his hat into the ring for president, the Washington establishment couldn’t wait to treat it like a joke. What did he know about government? Politics? Elections? Who does he think he is trying to run for president? Sound familiar?

WASHINGTON – Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, previously said the announcement of his running mate would be in the first week of August. But that announcement has been pushed back. A source familiar with the process said that an announcement isn't likely next week. According to the New York Times and CNN, the announcement will come the week before the Democratic National Convention, which is scheduled for Aug. 17 to 20. Three candidates, Karen Bass of California, Sen. Kamala Harris of California and former national security advisor Susan Rice, have emerged as the top contenders for Biden's running

Former president Barack Obama fanned the flames of racial resentment in his politicized eulogy for the late Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) at his funeral in Atlanta, Georgia, Thursday afternoon, comparing law enforcement officers and President Trump to racist Democrats Bull Connor and George Wallace. (Snip)As American Greatness has previously reported, statistics do not support the Black Lives Matter narrative that law enforcement in the United States is systemically racist, but Obama could not resist the opportunity to divide the nation along racial lines like he did for eight long years as president. His dig against federal agents was even more egregious.

It’s not likely to find anything on CNN that’s favorable or even even-handed when it comes to President Donald Trump. That’s one reason when it happens, it’s noteworthy. But also, it’s incredibly significant information that gives us a great window into what a very important group of Americans thinks about the election and Trump. If you just listened to the liberal media, pretty much all you would hear is polls show that Joe Biden is ahead.(Snip) That’s why it’s incredibly important to hear what real people are thinking. So listen to what Rich Thau, a focus group moderator, the moderator of the Swing Voter Project, has to say.
