Health Canada approves Pfizer’s COVID-19 antiviral pill
Toronto Star ^ | Mon., Jan. 17, 2022 | Raisa Patel

OTTAWA — Health Canada has approved Paxlovid, Pfizer’s oral antiviral treatment for COVID-19 that has been touted as a way to ease pressure on health-care systems overburdened by rising case counts.

According to an authorization posted on the regulator’s web page Monday morning, the treatment has been approved for adults with mild to moderate forms of the illness who are at high risk of developing more severe outcomes.

Because safety and efficacy data was not submitted to Health Canada on the use of the drug on younger age groups, Paxlovid has not been approved for pediatric patients.

The pill is also not approved as a starting point for treatment for those requiring hospitalization for severe or critical COVID-19 cases. It cannot be used as a preventative measure before or after exposure to COVID-19, nor can it be taken for longer than five consecutive days.

Paxlovid works by stopping the virus that causes COVID-19 from replicating itself and invading healthy cells. The drug is a combination of the Pfizer antiviral Nirmatrelvir and the antiretroviral Ritonavir, a medication used to treat HIV.

Health Canada received an application for approval of the antiviral on Dec. 1. The federal government has already signed a deal with Pfizer for one million courses of the treatment.

I think this is the pill that our Doc said last week, he couldn’t get.

Tested? I didn’t think so. Not required anymore.

That was my first thought...

The price differential, Paxlovid appears to be about $500 for a treatment, and Ivermectin appears to be about $30.

How much more effective is it?

And who, making the decisions, would profit from that price differential if the effectiveness is not hugely greater?

After seeing what has happened with testing with the vaccines, it is clear they are intended to be no more than a rubber stamp to get favorite drugs approved.

The question is, whose favorite drug is it, and why?

Here in Canada, do you think for one minute that ordinary Cnadians will get these pills?

Not a chance. Canada’s population is north of 37 million and Trudeau ordered only 1 million doses?

Nope, these are going to the elites and the privileged of Canadia, such as Doctors and health workers ( we must save our health care system, f**k everyone else..), and lefty politicians. Every one else...... YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN.

( Remember you commoners, peasants and deplorables!
, Ivermectin is your friend, do not waste a moment acquiring what you need......)

You are very astute my FRiend. See my post #8, and you will get the drift.

See my post at #29 on this thread "US Military Documents: Ivermectin “Works Throughout All Phases of Illness” to see an interesting conversation between Dr. Tess Lawrie and Dr. Andrew Hill.

Revealing. And sad. And I don't think he is the only one in my profession of healthcare that is making this horrible choice while people die and doing it for pieces of silver.

It is terribly disillusioning for me.

*****************************************
Ivermectin is your friend.

This is everything you need to know about Ivermectin,how it works, how to use it and how to obtain it.

******************************************

The Governement and Public Health Physicians mislead America:

1) mRNA vaccines DO NOT provide immunity of any kind.No antibodies.

2) mRNA vaccines do not prevent transmisson of the virus.

3) mRNA vaccines do attenuate Covid symptoms if the Covid mutant variant is vulnerable, for a limited period of 5 months ( Pfizer) to 6 or 8 months ( Moderna).

4) The mRNA vaccines do not work in the nasal cavity, in the pharnyx or in the lung, they only work in the blood stream, but give no protection to Covid involved organs.IVM does.

Thats why Ivermectin in your friend when taken within a few days of the infection or as prophylaxis.

Proof of Effectiveness of Ivermectin:

https://covid19criticalcare.com/ivermectin-in-covid-19/epidemiologic-analyses-on-covid19-and-ivermectin/

***************************************

How Ivermectin works:

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/343390023_Ivermectin_docks_to_the_SARS-CoV-2_spike_receptor-binding_domain_attached_to_A

There is reasonably solid evidence that ivermectin docks to the spike protein itself to prevent binding to the ACE2 receptor which is the primary pathology causing the tissue damage and clots related to SARS-CoV-2. Therefore, this is also an implication that this ability of ivermectin to disable the binding of the Spike protein including the vaccine-produced spike proteins. This binding of ivermectin to disable the spike protein is also preserved even with the newer spike protein mutations, but its activity against the original Wuhan spike protein,(the one vaccines were designed to produce) is fairly well studied at this point.

Abstract:

Background/Aim: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). One drug that has attracted interest is the antiparasitic compound ivermectin, a macrocyclic lactone derived from the bacterium Streptomyces avermitilis. We carried out a docking study to determine if ivermectin might be able to attach to the SARS-CoV-2 spike receptor-binding domain bound with ACE2. Materials and Methods: We used the program AutoDock Vina Extended to perform the docking study. Results: Ivermectin docked in the region of leucine 91 of the spike and histidine 378 of the ACE2 receptor. The binding energy of ivermectin to the spike-ACE2 complex was -18 kcal/mol and binding constant was 5.8 e-08.

Conclusion: The ivermectin docking we identified may interfere with the attachment of the spike to the human cell membrane. Clinical trials now underway should determine whether ivermectin is an effective treatment for SARS-Cov2 infection.

******************************

The following video [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11Bl2v3BR2M ] explains the multiple mechanisms of the activity of Ivermectin including the ability of the body to maintain its basic defense of the cell nucleus in preserving the body’s ability to produce antiviral proteins, inhibition of RNA dependant RNA polymerase which inhibits the replication of viral RNA (possibly including that from the mRNA vaccine package), the stat 3 human signaling pathway which inhibits the production of blood clots also possibly mitigating some of the vaccines most dangerous side effects. Also discussed is the inhibition of the CD147 pathway by ivermectin which again may block the clumping of platelets due to spike protein either from the virus or possibly the vaccines.

**************************************

IN FACT these Public Health commies do not want you to know about Ivermectin, that’s why they ridicule the drug and its use at every turn and suppress the news of Ivermectin’s effectiveness.

I was disallusioned.

But 2.5 years ago I began speaking with the staff of Dr. Zelenko as he saved lives with Hydroxychloroquin. They opened my eyes. And it then segued over to Dr. Pierre Kory and the Front Line Critical Care Alliance.

THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PHYSICIAANS IVOLVED IN USING IVERMECTIN AROUND THE WORLD> THEY ARE SAVING LIVES AND CURING PEOPLE.

The fraud perpetrated on America by the union of Big Pharm and MArxist bureaucrats is a crime against humanity. And it is perhaps the greatest crime against humanity, a form of genocide by the “elites” , since the holocaust of WWII.

Accountability will come. The military is right, but they too are under the draconian rule of the MArxists inWashington..

Do not be disillusioned, work for the greater good , and accountability. I myself have informed thousands on Ivermection, how it works, how to obtain it.I know I have saved many lives. You can do the same.

Thank you for that post.

Sometimes I feel very alone in this, especially with the vaccine mandate coming my way.

Nice to know others are pulling in the same direction...:)

Thank you.
