Dr. Jean-Jacques Rajter and Dr. Juliana Cepelowicz Rajter Discuss Ivermectin In Broward County | Podcast S2 E 27

TrialSite News Podcast

Please note a correction on date mentioned in podcast: May is the correct date instead of March.

Today we have the pleasure of introducing Dr. Jean-Jacques Rajter a Broward Health Medical Center physician and his wife Dr. Juliana Cepelowicz Rajter, in Florida. We covered a story about Dr. Rajter back in April, where they were “pioneering” the use of the anti-parasitic drug ivermectin on COVID-19 patients. Today, we talk to with them both about the results from the Sunshine state, and what the future holds.

  1. There is increasing evidence that ivermectin, the inexpensive fungus-derived medication for river blindness, elephantiasis and leprosy, is very important in humanely managing the current covid crisis.

    I hope some professionals will take a step further to explore its preventive possibilities as well. Since Ivermectin has been used successfully for decades to prevent parasitic diseases in all kinds of animals, might it not do the same for humans?

    If it is as successful in prevention as it is likely to be in treatment of covid, think of the impact on teachers, the parents and their children going back to school, healthcare workers, those working in unhealthy situations. With no effective immunization in sight, why not focus on prevention?

  2. Wow. Thank you doctors and a thank you Trial Site, for attempting to spread the information. If a major medical publication publishes the study it will help. On a sad note though, how disgusting that our society, government and politicians can be complicit in trying to burry this information to ensure Big Pharma profits from this human tragedy . Look at tobacco and I guess we should not be surprised. In the end history will judge these institutions and politicians harshly. Blood is already on their hands. Where is Merck, in all this. They developed Ivermectin. Shame on them.

    1. Walt thanks for visiting the TrialSite–we appreciate your participation.
      It is unfortunate that certain interests are selective which real world data to use. Unfortunately history is often teaches that focusing on the right thing to do often puts one at odds with established power structures. You know it doesn’t have to be that way. We are advocating at this point for researchers and scientists to at least exhibit some intellectual curiosity as to some trends out there. None of this is “proven” to where a claim can be made but there are real world data points that should be understood and embraced for further research. This is why the FDA launched various Real World Evidence initiatives in the first place. Luckily the TrialSite is an independent and objective zone–we engage the world for research (including real world off label scenarios) that appear to have promise during this pandemic period and beyond. We are grateful there are so many people interested in research. It’s really exciting to see how many folks are paying attention.
      Thanks again Walt.
