More on Chloroquine/Azithromycin. And On Dr. Raoult.

And weíre missing a very important aggregate number indeed: a control group. How would a comparable group of patients have performed in these RNA tests for contagiousness under another standard of care? Even with or without azithromycin, if you canít stand the thought of not giving them hydroxychloroquine? We donít know. Without matched controls, and without being able to look at individual patient data, we just donít know how good this treatment was or frankly if it was any good at all. We may be seeing a notable effect size in what is still a small trial, or we may be seeing something thatís not that remarkable or the result of a poorly controlled protocol.

2. The problem is that this guy is actually making it difficult to know

 


His published results show a combination of (a) cherry picked data, and (b) no measurable effect.

If there is any therapeutic value, he's making it harder to determine.
