Empezó como tarea universitaria, siguió una investigación de fraude científico, y ahora se retira el estudio. “Una mezcla de figuras de derecha, personajes anti-vacunas y conspiracionistas dominan grupos detrás de Ivermectina” theguardian.com/science/2021/j…

The scale of just how badly science fucked this one up is astonishing. Hundreds of thousands of views and millions of overhead opinions of vain anti-science divs and meta-analyses, AND NOT ONE PERSON CHECKED THE DATA. theguardian.com/science/2021/j…

The ivermectin saga: “The main error is that at least 79 of the patient records are obvious clones of other records” said Dr Nick Brown... “It’s certainly the hardest to explain away as innocent error, especially since the clones aren’t even pure copies" theguardian.com/science/2021/j…

Eine oft zitierte Studie zum angeblichen Nutzen von #Ivermectin gegen #COVID19 wurde vom #Preprint-Server genommen. Es gibt große Zweifel: In der Veröffentlichung waren die Ergebnisse erheblich positiver als in den Rohdaten, berichtet der @guardian theguardian.com/science/2021/j…

Big blow to team ivermectin- huge study supporting it found to be a load of bullshit. How big? ⁦@GidMK⁩ - “..if you get rid of just this research, most meta-analyses that have found positive results would have their conclusions entirely reversed.” theguardian.com/science/2021/j…

Thousands of scientists…. and at least four major medicines regulators missed a fraud so apparent that it might as well have come with a flashing neon sign….. and amid an ongoing global health crisis of epic proportions - is all the more terrifying theguardian.com/science/2021/j…

Covid-19: Uno de los mayores estudios a favor del uso de Ivermectina se retiró de la circulación (Elgazzar y cols.) pues sus resultados estaban amañados y con datos fabricados. Muchos de los análisis a favor del uso de Ivermectina pierden ahora valor. theguardian.com/science/2021/j…
