LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A Los Angeles doctor said he is seeing significant success in prescribing the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc to treat patients with severe symptoms of COVID-19.
Hydroxychloroquine has been touted as a possible treatment for COVID-19 by President Trump among others, but it remains controversial as some experts believe it is unproven and may not be effective.
The drug has long been used for treatment of malaria and conditions such as lupus and arthritis but is not technically approved by the FDA for COVID-19. The agency, however, is encouraging trials and has provided limited emergency authorization for its use to treat COVID-19 patients.
Dr. Anthony Cardillo said he has seen very promising results when prescribing hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc for the most severely-ill COVID-19 patients.
"Every patient I've prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free," Cardillo told Eyewitness News. "So clinically I am seeing a resolution."
Cardillo is the CEO of Mend Urgent Care, which has locations in Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys and Burbank.

Meanwhile there is a rat rep from Ohio who wants to have Trump tried in the Hague for promoting the use of it.
It’s a no brainer.
So happy to see Dr. Zev’s treatment regimen embraced by other docs who repeat the successful results.
It should only be a matter of time before the medical community gets onboard with HCQ+Zinc+Azt EN MASSE.
Then we can give the naysayers and deniers a middle finger salute.
Hear that Billy Boy Gates?
That “lawmaker” needs a dose of rope or lead therapy.
I heard the presser yesterday he was pushing it. Dr Fugazzi’s balloon knot must have puckered a little. He wants 12-18 months of trials and Cancun conferences till he says it’s ok for you not to die. My Dad’s Oncologist used to act strangely sociopaths about my Dad’s condition. Never one bit of warmth, optimism or compassion. My Dad passed in 2002 and to have done it al over, we would picked a different Doc. I don’t get all that much optimism or scientific curiosity with Fugazzi either. Hels an Aspergers type, like Zuckerberg. We have to keep him on but Trump needs to push him aside when we have the next Medical crisis. I want truth yes, but a I also want an out of the box thinker.
Doesn’t everyone want to wait for months on antivirals that are still in trial?
Or, better yet, Dr Fauci’s wonderful vaccine?
Believe it is unproven?. . .and MAY not be effective? So, what. . .we should not try. . .NO ONE is saying that if it isn't effective, it could also be dangerous to try. . .NO ONE. . .except the idiots who keep citing the nutballs who drank the fish tank cleaner. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? There is no question in my mind that the Leftist media and Demonicrats want this pandemic to last as long as possible and then to blame Trump for every death in a "Bush lied, people died" redux.
Let me see, we have a potential game changer that costs about $20 for a remedial dosage verses a still in testing viral drug that will probably cost anywhere from 10K-50K per dosage. Humm, what could be the motivation to await the approval for the cheaper generic drug? Gee, I cannot think of one but it is early in the day.
Becoming more and more obvious, Dems/media are willing to accept continued shutdown and death in exchange for a shot at removing Trump. Ergo, they fight any and everything that poses a “risk”. Sick evil monsters. Don’t look for wide spread reporting of this or of any other successes.
If it turns out that Hydroxychloroquine is a “miracle cure”, this will make Trump unbeatable in November. He’ll be able to tout that he was right and others belittled him for suggesting it.
At least the Brownshirts would stop beating you before you died. These Brownshirts on the left and in the media, want you dead. No different than the Waffen SS. Republicans are the new Jews.
My reaction exactly! What the hell is wrong with these people?? I don't mean that rhetorically. I really and truly wonder what's wrong with them. Are they such bureaucrats at heart that they can't approve of anything that doesn't come with built-in obstacles that take years to hurdle? Or is there something sicker going on?
All the health systems are using it. Its a weird hill to fight on the press has chosen.
Big Pharma will try and throw Cold Water on any news of this kind as they can’t make Mega $$$ on it as opposed to any new cure they develop.
Wow, what a curve bender.
Thanks rintintin, for finding this & posting!
Why did he not mention using it in combination with Azithromycin ? If he is stating that his results mirrored the French studies with mention only using HCQ in combination with Azithromycin ?
“The drug has long been used for treatment of malaria and conditions such as lupus and arthritis but is not technically approved by the FDA for COVID-19. The agency, however, is encouraging trials and has provided limited emergency authorization for its use to treat COVID-19 patients.”
I thought the FDA approved the use on March 30.
