Munavvar Izhar MD Creates High-Quality ABIM Type Questions and Board Preparation Materials

Munavvar Izhar MD as CEO of Medical Examination LLC pours his knowledge into Residents, Fellows, Internists, and Nephrologists to prepare them

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 / — Munavvar Izhar MD, CEO of Medical Examination LLC, who has about 30 years of nephrology experience, plays a vital role in creating the ABIM Chicago-based Exam World question sets. He supports this cause to help interns and physicians pass their American Board of Internal Medicine Certification, Recertification, and MOC exams.

Almost a thousand ABIM type nephrology questions help prepare Fellows and Nephrologists for certification or recertification examinations. These fully customizable practice sets are created based on the Blueprint of ABIM Examinations. The questions mimic the difficulty level as asked in ABIM Board Exams. The Questions are categorized under Various categories like ARF, CKD, ESRD, GN, Acid-Base, Fluid and Electrolytes, Transplant, etc. To make it more comprehensive Dr. Munavvar Izhar has also included Renal Physiology, Pharmacology & Anatomy. Munavvar Izhar has been innovative and thought it prudent to include a section of Renal Histopathology as well with questions based on and depicting classical teaching slides of renal histopathology that is frequently asked in ABIM Board Exams.

ABIM Board Exams are constantly evolving and changing with time. Realizing this Munavvar Izhar MD has also included new sections of Nephrology questions in areas of ICU & Critical Care Nephrology, Onconephrology, Genetics, Interventional and Acess Nephrology, Medical Director Responsibilities, and Issues. This makes Munavvar Izhar’s 1000 Nephrology Question Bank one of the most comprehensive question banks available. Dr. Munavvar Izhar and his team frequently review and update these questions and incorporate recent advances too. This nephrology board review question bank of this caliber at is the largest question bank available at the current time.

“Preparing for a licensing exam involving certifications and recertifications is one of the most significant and stressful times in a physician’s life.” That’s what it says on the ABIM Exam World website supported by CEO and physician Munavvar Izhar where the online practice sessions reside. Often nephrologists who pursue ABIM nephrology board certifications spend a week away from home in board reviews. This time away from their practices often cost them thousands of dollars that includes travel, stay in the hotel for a week, food, and registration for the course. Dr. Munavvar Izhar’s Nephrology preparatory materials have reduced testing expenses for practicing nephrologists to only a few hundred dollars and they can study in the comfort of their homes! The comprehensive topics and the explanations cover the entire spectrum of nephrology for ABIM Board Exam purposes.

The ABIM website states doctors and nephrologists limited by 2020-2021 Covid-19 quarantines may have the option to complete their certifications by the scheduled 2022 deadlines. The online board exam training that Dr. Izhar helps facilitate provides one more way for all individuals requiring a licensing exam during this period to complete their certification on time.

Munavvar Izhar MD and his team of nephrologists from academia and private practices do extensive research in drafting the questions. In addition, Dr. Munavvar Izhar, MD has published numerous research papers and articles in nephrology journals some of which are picked up by the press as well. He has also authored book chapters in textbooks of Internal Medicine and Nephrology. Dr. Munavvar Izhar has also published articles on recent advances in DIalysis and Wearable Kidney Devices to educate the vast majority of people dependent on dialysis.

Logged-in users of the Exam World portal can create practice tests based on a variety of question modes like in Tutor Mode or Exam mode. Munavvar Izhar who has taken numerous certification and recertification exams in both Internal Medicine, Nephrology, and Hypertension himself says that his platform gives the subscribers a real exam day feel.

On The Roof of The Rocky Mountains is a stunning new book celebrating Vail's Alpine Treasure, Betty Ford Alpine Gardens

Book Cover Image

Book Photography by Todd Winslow Pierce

Exploring North America's highest botanic garden

CARBONDALE, CO, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 / — Vail, Colorado. Available this Spring, On the Roof of the Rocky Mountains offers an intimate view of Vail's treasured botanic garden, Betty Ford Alpine Gardens. Written by landscape architect and Colorado-based author Sarah Chase Shaw, the book examines the extraordinary effort put forth by a group of community-minded citizens to develop a world-renowned botanic garden devoted to high alpine plants. Named in honor of former First Lady Betty Ford, an avid gardener and part-time resident of Vail, the Gardens showcases over 3,000 alpine species in a collection of individual gardens devoted to unique alpine environments around the globe.

Compelling text, accompanied by masterful plant portraits, take readers on an inside tour of the Gardens, one of the most diverse living alpine plant collections in North America. Shaw's new book is a tribute to alpine plants' world and the vital work the Gardens is doing to promote research and conservation of global alpine environments in one of America's premier resort destinations.

Betty Ford Alpine Gardens is more than a beautiful garden: it is a laboratory of testing, studying, and showcasing a rich palette of native and exotic perennials, many of which had never been grown above 6,000 feet anywhere in America.
— Panayoti Kalaidis, Senior Curator and Director of Outreach for Denver Botanic Gardens.

On the Roof of the Rocky Mountains illuminates the Gardens as both a leader in alpine plant conservation as well as a destination in one of America's premier resorts. Its expertly curated and stunningly beautiful botanic displays are located within the Town of Vail's Ford Park, directly across from Vail Mountain, and a short distance from the center of Vail Village.

Captivating photography and descriptive writing reveal the beauty and infinite grandeur of the land above the trees, a landscape that few visit and even fewer inhabit. An exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Gardens immerses readers in a seasonal look at the unusual alpine specimens and horticultural favorites interspersed throughout the Gardens' collections, from the frigid and barren peaks of Colorado's Rocky Mountains to the more temperate alpine environments of South Africa, the Himalayas, the Caucasus Mountains, and beyond.

On the Roof of the Rocky Mountains establishes the Gardens as a must-see destination for visitors, a place known for its beautiful gardens, world-renowned plant collections, and educational outreach. All Gardens' photography was captured by Vail-based photographers Todd Winslow Pierce and Dominique Taylor. Drone photography was taken by outdoor adventure photographer Brandon Huttenlocher. Global alpine imagery comes from Minden Pictures, recognized worldwide as the foremost provider of wildlife and nature stock photography.

"While the focus of the book is Betty Ford Alpine Gardens," says Shaw, "it is also a celebration of the global reach of the alpine ecosystem and the unique climate that supports and sustains the hardy plants and animals that inhabit it from pole to pole."

Organized into five chapters, the book opens with "Sowing Seeds," a look back at the community's effort to create a public garden in an emerging year-round destination resort. Stunning images of global alpine landscapes populate the pages of chapter two, "Understanding the Alpine World," illustrating the unusual ways in which weather and climate define survival for plants, animals, and humans in the land above the trees. The Gardens' magnificent botanic displays are revealed in "Four Seasons in the Gardens." Its distinguished collections of alpine plants worldwide come into focus in "Guardians of the Alpine." Finally, the Gardens' role as a leader in alpine plant conservation are described in "Vigilance and Vision."

Sarah Chase Shaw is the author of two residential landscape architecture books and co-author of Living Beneath the Colorado Peaks: The Story of Knapp Ranch. Her work, which has appeared in multiple national and regional publications, covers design and lifestyle issues in the American West, including landscape architecture, architecture, community planning, environmental design, land use, real estate, gardens, people, families, and history.
On The Roof of The Rocky Mountains The Botanical Legacy of Betty Ford Alpine Gardens | Vail's Alpine Treasure is a 12" x 12" hardcover book with 276 pages, over 285 color photographs, an artistically-rendered map, and over 22,000 words, text, and captions. Retail price, $45. ISBN: 978-1-4236-6011-8. It will be available for sale in June 2021 at and botanical garden gift shops across the U.S. and independent bookstores.

The anti-COVID internship: Simformer launches a safe virtual internship program for students

Internships will be held inside the online business simulation. They are available for students studying Economics, Marketing, Management and Entrepreneurship.

NEW CASTLE, DELAWARE, USA, May 7, 2021 / — Students had a tough time getting internships in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, remote and online internships have become very popular since last summer. Universities and business schools around the world have been making it clear that Simformer’s realistic business simulations are an effective alternative to regular offline internships.

That’s why our virtual internship program starts earlier this year. These internships are becoming available to universities and students around the world from the beginning of May 2021 via our website.

The online internship program has been created in the form of a realistic business simulator in which a student, in a virtual environment, manages his own business, masters management skills, and applies university-learned knowledge relating to business and economics.

This year, four types of business scenarios are available to choose from: “Balanced Retail”, featuring management of an enterprise within the regular retail industry; “Cloth Road”, which is focused on the management of a commercial production chain; “Motorcycle”, relating to the creation and launch of a complex, high-tech product, and finally “Path to success”, a startup simulator for those who want to become an entrepreneurs.

Simformer helps students to gain practical management skills while providing the teacher with a detailed report on the students’ virtual companies indicators and their total activities within the business simulation. Universities can order licenses for their whole course, or students can purchase internships independently, post-co-ordination with their teacher of course.

Hundreds of universities and business schools around the world have begun to apply Simformer’s business simulations to offer their students valuable managerial and entrepreneurial skills. Several years ago, a large-scale tournament on management and entrepreneurship named the ‘Simformer Business Cup’ was held, in which several thousand students from 400 universities across 40 countries took part. Moreover, in 2019, Simformer’s Business University Management Cup was held, in which several thousand students from more than 200 universities competed.

Detailed information about our business simulations can be found on our website.

"Space Traveler: Chelsea goes to Mars" gives viewers a taste of life on the red planet

From eating only dehydrated or freeze-dried food to putting on a spacesuit and problem-solving as a crew, I sought to capture a raw, intimate look at what it feels like to be an analog astronaut.”

— Senior Writer Chelsea Gohd

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 / — Ever wonder what it would be like to live on Mars? Senior Writer Chelsea Gohd found out — and now you can, too., a publication of Future PLC, today began streaming "Space Traveler: Chelsea goes to Mars," a new 10-minute overview of the 14 days Gohd spent at the HI-SEAS analog (simulated) astronaut habitat in Hawaii.

Joining the all-female crew of the Sensoria M2 mission on the side of Mauna Loa Volcano in November 2020, Gohd recorded footage for the documentary, which was then produced in collaboration with Future Studios. Keeping a daily log, Gohd described the experience in articles on and “All About Space” Magazine in order to help readers and viewers understand the challenges with which future Mars explorers will have to contend, and the ways analog astronauts are approaching those challenges in order to help actual crews in the future.

The Sensoria M2 analog Mars mission is only the latest space trip for Gohd. She experienced weightlessness on a zero gravity flight and rode in a moon buggy in the New Mexico desert to chase the experience of spaceflight.

“Few people understand how analog space missions work, let alone why they’re so important to the success of actual missions,” said Gohd. “From eating only dehydrated or freeze-dried food to putting on a spacesuit and problem-solving as a crew, I sought to capture a raw, intimate look at what it feels like to be an analog astronaut. The fact that we were relying on delayed email transmissions about the results of the 2020 Presidential election — just as real residents of Mars would have done — only enriched the experience.”

The video, depicting the crew coping with power and water shortages as well as Marswalks in lava tubes, makes its debut today on, its YouTube channel VideoFromSpace (1M+ subscribers) and its Facebook channel (2.7M followers).

Research: It Is Safer Than Ever for Patients to Return to the Dentist

Dr. James Younger

TempStars Logo

Dr. Younger identified multiple studies that support that conclusion, as well as an April 4 “Science Brief” from the United States Centers for Disease Control.

Dentists take their responsibility to protect both their employees and patients very seriously. It’s why we have seen so very few instances of outbreaks that started in dental offices – it’s rare.”

— Dr. James Younger, CEO of TempStars

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 7, 2021 / — Mounting evidence points to the fact that it is as safe as it has been since before the pandemic for both Canadians and Americans to return to the patient’s chair at their preferred dental office, TempStars CEO Dr. James Younger recently said.

Dr. Younger, a practicing dentist, identified multiple studies that support that conclusion, as well as an April 4 “Science Brief” from the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) – Science Brief: SARS-CoV-2 and Surface (Fomite) Transmission for Indoor Community Environments | CDC
In that brief, the CDC wrote that while “it is possible for people to be infected through contact with contaminated surfaces or objects (fomites), but the risk is generally considered to be low.”

This advice contrasted with advice from around a year ago, which suggested that SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) could easily be spread by touching infected surfaces. That advice, and its communication through the mass media, led hundreds of millions of people around the word to empty shelves of disinfecting wipes.

“It understandably created a certain level of fear about going to the dentist,” said Dr. Younger, who founded TempStars, North America’s largest and most respected dental temping and hiring service. “There’s nothing wrong with being prudent or safe – we must take the safety of our patients and team as a top priority. But it is also important to share new data when it becomes available that encourages a more pragmatic approach, especially as it relates to being proactive with your dental care.”

Dr. Younger added that dentists and their respective employee teams take great precautions to protect their patients.

“At TempStars, we interact with thousands of dental offices throughout North America,” he said. “Dentists take their responsibility to protect both their employees and patients very seriously. It’s why we have seen so very few instances of outbreaks that started in dental offices – it’s extremely rare.”

Among the studies supporting the relative safety of visiting a dental office are:

“It’s time to remind everyone that it is safe to return to the dentist office,” Dr. Younger said. “That’s what the science is telling us.”

About TempStars

TempStars is North America’s fastest-growing dental temping and hiring service. Since 2015, the company continues to build on cutting-edge mobile technology to directly connect dental professionals quickly and easily. With more than 8,000 members and growing daily, TempStars is quickly becoming the best, first, and default choice for dental professionals looking to hire and get hired for temping and permanent positions. With expanding service in the United States this year, the company is dedicated to inspiring and positively impacting the dental community on a global scale.

Sing, Fly, Soar – Like a Bird

The birds featured on the 2021 World Migratory Bird Day poster represent diverse species that migrate long distances from wintering to breeding sites. Species include the Sandhill Crane, Yellow Warbler, and Turkey Vulture.

The 2021 World Migratory Bird Day was created by Alaskan artist, Sara Wolman.

World Migratory Bird Day raises awareness of migratory birds, such as the Wood Thrush. Its numbers have declined as much as 60% since 1970 in part because of habitat loss.

World Migratory Bird Day 2021 celebrates the beauty, song, flight, and
intrigue of migratory birds

World Migratory Bird Day champions bird conservation across the flyways, unifying our voices for migratory bird conservation and serving as a call to action to protect them.”

— Dr. Susan Bonfield, Executive Director of Environment for the Americas

BOULDER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 / — “Sing, Fly, Soar – Like a Bird!” is the theme of this year’s World Migratory Bird Day, an annual global campaign dedicated to raising awareness of migratory birds and the need for international cooperation to conserve them.

From sandpipers and cranes to vultures and hummingbirds, this year’s World Migratory Bird Day explores what makes birds unique. With approximately 10,400 bird species globally and approximately 900 bird species in the United States, birds are ambassadors of the natural world. They help unite us with nature and understand the interconnections among all things. They sing. They fly. They are architects and acrobats. They live in every habitat from urban to wilderness. World Migratory Bird Day is a celebration of the astonishing journeys of these animals, like the roughly 8,000 mile round-trip migration of the tiny Rufous Hummingbird.

This year the campaign focuses on the phenomena of “bird song” and “bird flight” as a way to inspire and connect people of all ages around the world. United in a common, global effort, we can protect birds and the habitats they need to survive. It is an invitation to people everywhere to connect and re-connect with nature by actively listening to – and watching birds – wherever they are. It is an opportunity to inspire people around the world to learn about, to love, and to take action to protect these long distance travelers.

The pandemic has been an unprecedented challenge for humankind. At the same time, it has also brought a whole new level of awareness and appreciation of birds and the importance of nature for our own well-being. Interest in bird watching has soared. Birds have been symbols of freedom, and during the pandemic, provide a glimmer of light. We might not be able to travel to exotic places such as the rainforest right now, but migratory birds bring a bit of the rainforest to us.

"World Migratory Bird Day champions bird conservation across the flyways,” says Susan Bonfield, Executive Director, Environment for the Americas. The organization coordinates World Migratory Bird Day in the Americas, bringing people and communities together in celebration of migratory birds from Canada to Argentina and the Caribbean. “Our programs are helping to unify our voices for migratory birds and serve as a call to action to protect them."

World Migratory Bird Day 2021 is not only a celebration of birds, it is also an important moment to reflect on our own global relationship with nature and to highlight our collective desire to do more to protect birds and nature in a post-pandemic world. Their spirited migrations and spectacular flights are a symbol of freedom, even during a time when people feel confined.

Globally, World Migratory Bird Day is a collaborative partnership among two UN treaties -the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS) and the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (AEWA), and Environment for the Americas. The 2021 campaign is also actively supported by the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership Secretariat and a growing number of other dedicated organizations.

Celebrated across the world on two peak days each year – on the second Saturday in May and second Saturday in October – World Migratory Bird Day is the only international awareness-raising and conservation education program that celebrates the migration of bird species along all the major flyways of the world.

How can you get involved?
Join for 3 days of virtual programming. May 7th is a day for youth, families and schools. On May 9th, presenters from across the Americas flyways will share the migratory routes of shorebirds, ending in Alaska at one of the most important stopover sites for Western Sandpipers.

World Migratory Bird Day motivates simple actions to help migratory birds. These include:
– Plant native flowers, bushes, and trees which have been proven to offer more benefits to birds;
– Make your windows visible to birds. They don't see pane glass and collisions with them are usually fatal;
– Keep your cats indoors. Studies reveal that they kill billions of birds each year.
– Say "NO" to plastics. Birds don't recognize plastics and can ingest them or be entangled in them.
– Buy for the Birds, such as shade-grown coffee and chocolate that are grown sustainably, supporting habitats that benefit birds.

About World Migratory Bird Day
World Migratory Bird Day was first held in 1993 by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and Partners in Flight. Environment for the Americas has been coordinating the event since 2005.

About the Partners
Environment for the Americas is a Colorado-based non-profit organization that connects people to nature and bird conservation through research, education, training, and outreach across the Western Hemisphere. It works in communities and develops educational activities and digital and print materials that provide pertinent information about bird populations and their conservation.

The Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals aims to conserve terrestrial, aquatic and avian migratory species throughout their range. It is an intergovernmental treaty concerned with the conservation of wildlife and habitats on a global scale. Since the Convention's entry into force in 1979, its membership has grown steadily to include 132 Parties from Africa, Central and South America, Asia, Europe and Oceania.

The Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) is an intergovernmental treaty dedicated to the conservation of migratory waterbirds that migrate along the African-Eurasian Flyway.

Best Thread Lift Training Course

Top Thread Lift Training Course

R3 Medical Training is now enrolling for its upcoming Basic and Advanced PDO Thread Lift Certification Courses for June 10-11th in Nashville, TN.

Unlike most thread lift training courses that are only model-based, our PDO thread lift training courses are predominantly hands on with real patients. It's truly the best way to learn!”

— CEO David Greene, MD, MBA

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2021 / — R3 Medical Training is now enrolling for its upcoming Basic and Advanced PDO Thread Lift Certification Courses for June 10-11th in Nashville, TN. The hands on courses will be held at Nashville Loews hotel and include real patients obtaining real procedures.

As PDO thread lift procedures continue to increase in popularity throughout the United States, patients are asking regularly for the procedures on the face, neck, arms, legs and abdomen. Healthcare providers need to be Certified to offer PDO Thread Lift procedures. Attendance at R3 Medical's Certification courses has continued to increase as providers realize the importance of hands on training.

"Unlike most thread lift training courses that are only model-based, our courses are predominantly hands on with real patients. It's truly the best way to learn, and our PDO Thread Lift Training provides a skill set that is memorable!," said R3 CEO David Greene, MD, MBA.

R3 Medical Training abides by the mantra "See one, do one and have one." This way, attendees are able to relate with patients much better. The expert trainers teach patient evaluation, anatomy, procedure techniques and post-procedure care. The memorable skills obtained immediately transfer into every provider's practice.

In addition, attendees will learn which biologics are great to use with threads such as exosome rich fluid, umbilical cord tissue and PRP. Providers may attend both the Basic and Advanced PDO trainings on successive days, and also attend the Regenerative Aesthetics Course that weekend June 12-13th at the same location.

R3's hands on thread lift courses are held in an intimate environment, where the amount of attendees are limited. After a didactic presentation and a model procedure, attendees are then working with the trainer hands on for the remainder of the Certification. Attendees who complete the course receive a Certificate afterwards. This is great for framing at the practice.

"There's no other course that offers the immersive, experiential learning. Attendees need to go back to their practices ready to offer patients the best outcome and be comfortable with the techniques. We offer that!" added Dr. Greene.

Providers are able to register online at or by calling (888) 998-6343.

RxBIO brings COVID-19 saliva collection kit with 99.998% accuracy to Canadians

Testing for COVID-19 should be accurate, efficient and user-friendly – those are hallmarks of Spectrum Solutions’ saliva collection device”

— Jasmin Jetha, President and COO for RxBIO

RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 6, 2021 / — A saliva collection kit that uses a pain-free method to test for COVID-19 is being distributed in Canada for the first time by RxBIO Corp., a leading medical device distribution company.

Spectrum Solutions’ SDNA saliva collection kit offers a comfortable and more accurate alternative to the painful nasal swab test method for COVID-19. Approved by Health Canada under Interim Order in January 2021, Spectrum’s SDNA saliva collection kit is the first saliva-based system to receive Emergency Use Authorization for COVID-19 testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The launch of Spectrum’s SDNA-2000 and SDNA-3000 Saliva Collection Devices in Canada means Canadians have access to an effective saliva-based COVID-19 test option, with 99.998 percent accuracy. The device is so reliable that Major League Baseball uses Spectrum’s SDNA-1000 saliva collection kits to test all players and staff.

“We are thrilled to partner with Spectrum Solutions to offer Canadians an alternative option at a time when testing for COVID-19 is at a crucial stage,” said Alfan Jetha, RxBIO’s CEO. “As the vaccination program rolls out across the country, daily testing is more important than ever to prevent viral spread and Spectrum Solutions is a leader in molecular diagnostic testing.”

Spectrum’s SDNA saliva collection device is a three-component kit that enables self-collection of saliva samples. The device has the ability to 100 per cent inactivate the live virus at ambient temperatures, mitigating any risk of infection throughout the testing process. Samples are preserved for 10 days post-collection without any degradation of sample efficacy and do not require temperature-controlled storage or transport. The kits can be used in a variety of scenarios, including at-home testing by individuals or mass testing by organizations.

“Testing for COVID-19 should be accurate, efficient and user-friendly – those are hallmarks of Spectrum Solutions’ saliva collection device,” said Jasmin Jetha, President and COO for RxBIO. “The saliva collection kit was also designed to minimize user collection errors.”

“At Spectrum, we engineered our revolutionary saliva-based PCR testing kits for early detection accuracy and safety. No trade-offs. After all, if you display symptoms, you have already exposed others to possible infection,” said Stephen Fanning, President and Chief Executive Officer for Spectrum Solutions. “Our highly sensitive formulation is able to detect infections from saliva samples measuring as low as 200 copies/ml with viral neutralization in contrast to lateral flow rapid antigen testing requiring a minimum of 10,000-20,000 copies/ml.”

A Panel of Leading Medical Experts Concludes that Ivermectin Should be Systematically and Globally Adopted for the Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, May 6, 2021 / — Peer reviewed by medical experts that included three U.S. government senior scientists and published in the American Journal of Therapeutics, the research is the most comprehensive review of the available data taken from clinical, in vitro, animal, and real-world studies. Led by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), a group of medical and scientific experts reviewed published peer-reviewed studies, manuscripts, expert meta-analyses, and epidemiological analyses of regions with ivermectin distribution efforts all showing that ivermectin is an effective prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19.

“We did the work that the medical authorities failed to do, we conducted the most comprehensive review of the available data on ivermectin,” said Pierre Kory, M.P.A., MD, president and chief medical officer of the FLCCC. “We applied the gold standard to qualify the data reviewed before concluding that ivermectin can end this pandemic.”

A focus of the manuscript was on the 27 controlled trials available in January 2021, 15 of which were randomized controlled trials (RCT’s), the preferred trial of the World Health Organization, U.S. National Institutes of Health, and the European Medicines Agency. Consistent with numerous meta-analyses of ivermectin RCT’s since published by expert panels from the UK, Italy, Spain, and Japan, they found large, statistically significant reduction in mortality, time to recovery and viral clearance in COVID-19 patients treated with ivermectin.

To evaluate the efficacy of ivermectin in preventing COVID-19, 3 RCT’s and 5 observational controlled trial’s including almost 2,500 patients all reported that ivermectin significantly reduces the risk of contracting COVID-19 when used regularly.

Many regions around the world now recognize that ivermectin is a powerful prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19. South Africa, Zimbabwe, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Mexico, and now, India, have approved the drug for use by medical professionals. The results as seen in this latest study demonstrate that the ivermectin distribution campaigns repeatedly led to “rapid population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality.”

“Our latest research shows, once again, that when the totality of the evidence is examined, there is no doubt that ivermectin is highly effective as a safe prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19,” said Paul E. Marik, M.D., FCCM, FCCP, founding member of the FLCCC and Chief, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School. “We can no longer rely on many of the larger health authorities to make an honest examination of the medical and scientific evidence. So, we are calling on regional public health authorities and medical professionals around the world to demand that ivermectin be included in their standard of care right away so we can end this pandemic once and for all.”

The published research can be found in the latest edition of the American Journal of Therapeutics.
