Oxford scientists halt antimalarial drug trial, call it 'useless'

Jun 06, 2020 10:43 IST

Scientists from the University of Oxford have stopped the clinical trials for antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine, dubbing it 'useless' as a Covid-19 treatment, reports Reuters. Researchers upon reviewing data from the so-called RECOVERY trial announced that the drug, which famously dubbed as a possible 'game-changer' by US President Donald Trump, does not work as a treatment for coronavirus patients. The clear announcement that HCQ does not reduce death risk in hospitalised patients with Covid-19 has not pushed WHO to stop its own trial of the drug, as the health body remains committed to finding its 'own data.'
