Observational Study on 255 Mechanically Ventilated Covid Patients at the Beginning of the USA Pandemic

Retrospective 255 mechanical ventilation patients in USA, showing that weight-adjusted HCQ+AZ improved survival by over 100%. QTc prolongation did not correlate with cumulative HCQ dose or HCQ serum level.
Although authors mention immortal time bias, full details on the timing of HCQ administration is not provided and this is not fully addressed. Survival curves indicate immortal time bias will significantly change results, although the observed benefit appears to exceed the potential bias.

Smith et al., 5/31/2021, retrospective, USA, North America, peer-reviewed, 4 authors.
risk of death, 27.2% lower, RR 0.73, p < 0.001, treatment 19 of 37 (51.4%), control 182 of 218 (83.5%), odds ratio converted to relative risk, >3g HCQ and >1g AZ, multivariable cox proportional hazard regression.
risk of death, 92.9% lower, RR 0.07, p < 0.001, ≥80mg/kg HCQ and >1g AZ.

Effect extraction follows pre-specified rules prioritizing more serious outcomes. For an individual study the most serious outcome may have a smaller number of events and lower statistical signficance, however this provides the strongest evidence for the most serious outcomes when combining the results of many trials.

Elimination of COVID-19 is a race against viral evolution. No treatment, vaccine, or intervention is 100% available and effective for all current and future variants. Denying the efficacy of any method increases the risk of COVID-19 becoming endemic; and increases mortality, morbidity, and collateral damage. We do not provide medical advice.
