Doctor defends ‘80 clinical studies’ showing ivermectin ‘89% effective’ at preventing COVID
‘People are trying to scare us from taking ivermectin,’ Dr. Benigno Agbayani declared. ‘It’s one of the safest drugs in the world.’
QUEZON, Philippines, April 29, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A doctor from the Philippines strongly defended the use of ivermectin for preventing and treating COVID-19, pointing to “80 clinical studies” which support his arguments, and alluding to “bias” and conflicts of interest, which have led medical bodies to be reluctant about promoting the drug.
Appearing on Philippine television channel ABS–CBN, Dr. Benigno Agbayani answered a range of questions about the efficacy and safety of the drug, as well as the peculiar reticence to recommend it for treating COVID-19.
Agbayani, the president of Concerned Doctors and Citizens of the Philippines, revealed that since last year, he had spent over five hours a day studying scientific literature on all things pertaining to COVID-19, including the non-effectiveness of lockdowns. “I think I’ve read more than anyone on COVID-19,” he stated.

Agbayani has successfully used ivermectin in over 300 of his own patients.
“As much as anecdotal [pieces of evidence] are good, and we have many, I really prefer that we stick to the science,” he said. “People are trying to scare us from taking ivermectin. It’s one of the safest drugs in the world.”
Mentioning a study from September 2020, Agbayani stated that ivermectin had been shown to actually block “the receptor sites of the virus onto our cells, therefore blocking it from ever getting to the cell.”
“You have over 26, as of today, randomized control trials showing effectiveness, even as high as 89% for prevention, and as high as 80% for treatment. So I think regardless of what the other groups are doing, you have so much science behind it, I do not see why we have to be so concerned.”
He alluded to the peculiar antagonism which has been levied against ivermectin, noting how scepticism regarding studies promoting ivermectin is not mirrored with other drugs: “[T]he same thing can be said of every drug that we tried. Even people who are taking remdesevir, they also try other drugs, and yet you don’t question that.”
The article points out that medical bodies are still resistant to the use of ivermectin with with Big Tech even weighing in and deleting videos which defends the drug. Thanks to the efforts of the Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) upgraded their recommendation for the “miraculous” drug ivermectin, making it an option for use in treating COVID-19 within the United States, but only since January.
Agbayani states there is a clear bias and that ‘authorities’ do not want to look at certain studies:
“There is some kind of bias going on that we’d like to question. This is the time in our history when we should look at conflicts of interest.” Dr. Benigno Agbayani
The vaccine company Merck even issued a statement advising against the use of ivermectin for COVID, despite having developed it some 30 years prior. This was an “excellent example of conflict of interest,” stated Agbayani.
Evidently Merck is coming out with a NEW drug for COVID-19 – which means they will not make money off of it if ivermectin is the drug of choice.
Regarding safety, Agbayani states it has a 25-year safety record and that you could take ten times the NIH daily recommended amount and it would not yield side effects.
The article thankfully mentions Dr. Pierre Kory’s address to the Senate, which was censored by Youtube, defending ivermectin as well as the following quote:
“It literally destroys the virus in most people within 48 hours,” agreed fellow panelist Dr. Jean-Jacques Rajter, whose peer-reviewed study found 60% fewer deaths among patients given the drug.
Research done last year in Australia showed that a SINGLE dose could kill COVID-19 in a petri dish within 48 hours, and that after just 24 hours there was significant reduction of the virus.
I’ve written about our experience using ivermectin for COVID-19 here. (Scroll to comment section) I must state our experience mirrors the research presented within this article that that we both felt significant relief within 24 hours and miraculous relief within 48 hours. I freely admit that both IV C and blood ozone are also effective against viruses – which I also used. My husband; however, only used blood ozone and ivermectin and had the same results as I.
The censorship of effective, lifesaving treatments should be a crime. If it wasn’t for the efforts by many doctors and health practitioners defending ivermectin, and other effective treatments, they would have been completely bypassed for lucrative yet ineffective drugs like Remdesivir, which many of our public ‘authorities’ have a vested interest in, and obtain monies from its sale. They had hoped to regain lost profits from this drug which also failed in the past.
