SHERMAN OAKS PHYSICIAN HAS SUCCESS WITH HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE AND ZINC
Dr. Cardillo with Mend Urgent Care in Sherman Oaks says using hydroxychloroquine with zinc appears to be working in the handful of patients he has prescribed it to.
“It was actually the hydroxychloroquine opening up a channel in the cellular membranes allowing zinc to come into the cells,” he said, “And we do know high levels of zinc inside of the cell that’s infected with the virus shuts down that viral replication machinery.”
He also gave patients azithromycin, an antibiotic most of us know as a Z-pack, to treat possible subsequent bacterial infections.
Of the 95 patients who have tested positive under Dr. Cardillo’s care, five had symptoms serious enough for him to prescribe the combination treatment. All were outpatient.
He said, “The other 90 people did very well on their own. No treatment whatsoever.”
He says chloroquine should not be taken as a preventative and it should not be given to people with mild symptoms. For some it can cause an irregular heartbeat that could be dangerous.
“This regimen has to be used on a hospital level, it has to be managed by physicians for people who are getting very sick,” he said. “The basic tenet or principle of medicine is to do no harm.”
