GPs Start Prescribing Low-Dose Ivermectin Triple Therapy for COVID-19


Sydney, Australia – Australian triple therapy specialist Professor Thomas Borody, internationally famous for curing peptic ulcers using a triple antibiotic therapy saving thousands of lives, said 34 prescriptions for the inexpensive low-dose Ivermectin Triple Therapy 10-day treatment protocol have been written by GPs.


There have been numerous requests for the protocol via the GP@CDD.com.au including 57 Australian GPs, 30 doctors from overseas, and enquires from 184 members of the public (the protocol is only available to verified GPs as a prescription only).


Professor Thomas Borody MB, BS, BSc(Med), MD, PhD, DSc, FRACP,FACP,FACG, AGAF, FRS(N) said we could probably end the lock-downs and open our economy within 8-10 weeks using these TGA approved medications.


The Ivermectin triple therapy seems to be the cheapest, safest, and rapidly-curing treatment for Australians, and used broadly could stimulate the Australian economy.


Professor Borody said:


“Australian GPs can legally prescribe the medications as “off-label” to their COVID-19 positive patients. They can also prescribe it as a shorter, preventative medication.


In-fact more than 60% of prescriptions in Australia are “off-label”. It’s not a new concept. It’s happening legally every day to manage diseases and save lives.”


AMA Medicines 2019 position statement https://ama.com.au/position-statement/medicines-2019-position-statement


4.7. ‘Off-label prescribing’ is the prescription of a registered medicine for a use that is not included in the product information approved by the TGA, including when the medicine is prescribed or administered for another indication, at a different dose, via an alternate route of administration, or for a patient of an age or gender outside the registered use.

4.8. Off-label prescribing may be clinically appropriate, but there are clinical, safety, ethical, medico-legal and financial issues related to off-label use. The AMA supports the guiding principles for the quality use of off-label medicines developed by the Council of Australian Therapeutic Advisory Groups for public hospitals[3]. These principles should also guide private practice where relevant, in particular:
(a) off-label use of a medicine should only be considered when other options are unavailable, exhausted, not tolerated or unsuitable
(b) the patient/carer must be involved in decision-making
(c) outcomes, effectiveness and adverse events should be monitored and reported to facilitate evidence-based decisions.


Professor Borody, an internationally regarded physician with 4 FDA approved drugs, is famous for developing the triple therapy that cured patients with peptic ulcers saving more than 18,000 lives in Australia alone and millions internationally.

“No trial has shown Ivermectin-based therapy to be ineffective. In-fact, international trials report almost 100% cure rate with symptom improvement within 4-6 days,” he said.


This needs to be available for aged care facilities and frontline health workers today.


We have written to the Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews for an urgent medical briefing to bypass the raft of “advisors” who failed to understand TGA-approved medicines do not require animal studies.


Ivermectin, known as “the wonder drug” was discovered in the 1970s and is on the World Health Organization (WHO) list of essential medicines.


“There is mounting worldwide clinical literature pointing to a 100% cure rate using Ivermectin Triple Therapy,” said Professor Borody.


Professor Borody says his research has led him to a triple therapy of Ivermectin, zinc and an antibiotic – which are all TGA and FDA approved,


The therapy comprises:

1.    Ivermectin - TGA and FDA approved as an anti-parasitic therapy with an established safety profile since the 1970s. Known as the “Wonder Drug” from Japan.

2.    Zinc

3.    Doxycycline – TGA and FDA approved tetracycline antibiotic that fights bacterial infections, eg acne or urinary tract infections, viral and malarial  infections.


Professor Borody is involved in a Phase 2 study in the US to potentially develop the triple therapy as a single “blister pack” compliance product.


Professor Borody said:


“Our study in the US is looking at developing the triple therapy as a single product which requires FDA approval, even though all 3 medications separately are already approved.”

Professor Borody is also known internationally for his work on gut mircobiome infections and re-purposing antimicrobial drugs for new diseases including Crohn’s disease and the triple therapy cure for peptic ulcers. His discovery prevented premature deaths in over 18,000 people and saved the Federal Government a reported $10 billion [THEMA REPORT-p 7]. 


He has developed 4 FDA approved pharmaceuticals for the USA and international markets.


There are currently 28 Covid-19 Ivermectin treatment studies running globally.

Legal to prescribe off label according to AMA especially as there is nothing else except vaccine in next 6 months and we will still need some sort of treatment.
