NIH-funded study to evaluate drugs prescribed to children with COVID-19

by NIH News Release

Researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health have launched an effort to evaluate drugs prescribed to treat COVID-19 in infants, children and adolescents across the country. The study leverages an existing clinical trial that examines drugs that are prescribed off-label to children for a variety of medical conditions. Because many drugs have not been tested specifically for use in children, physicians will often prescribe drugs off-label to children because they lack an alternative, approved treatment.

“As we search for safe and effective therapies for COVID-19, we want to make sure that we do not overlook the needs of our youngest patients who may respond differently to these drugs, compared to adults,” said Diana W. Bianchi, M.D., director of NIH’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), which oversees the project.

Researchers will investigate several drugs currently given to children diagnosed with COVID-19, including antiviral and anti-inflammatory drugs. Products will be added or removed from the list as researchers learn more about the treatment needs of patients with COVID-19. The study is not a clinical trial with a control group. Rather, healthcare providers who are already treating patients with drugs on the list may enroll patients whose parents or guardians have given their consent. The study is called Pharmacokinetics of Understudied Drugs Administered to Children Per Standard of Care.

  1. There is a cute. Not a treatment, a cure. Developed with the derivitives of this round of Bio-Weapons at several labs, and the University of North Carolina.
    A Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded project.

    University of Montana had developed highly resistant bacteria, then released it over US during the last eclipse. The one that Government urged people to “go outside, and watch, as this eclipse was a daylight event.
    Samples of the virus, AND the cure from the University University of North Carolina were sent to the Pirbright Institution in London. It’s interesting to note Lord Pirbright is a Rothschild.
    This was also Gates funded.
    The Wuhan Bio-Weapons Lab, was working on this virus, another Gates funded project. As was the WHO lab that went unmentioned right next to the Wuhan Bio-Weapons Lab. No one remembered this lab was there. Selective memory loss.
    Yet another Gates funded effort.
    CDC stayed busy with lying through it’s Globalist funded teeth, Gates among them. Theres US Government Bio-Weapons Labs in Georgia, (Eurasia), and new labs in Ukraine. There were people caught gathering DNA samples of Russians, inside Russia. (not Russian researchers)
    There’s the toxic chemicals, and elements our beloved Government sprays in the sky daily, Fluoride in drinking water, and deadly toxic vaccines. That are now going through the US Congress to make vaccines mandatory by law. This is all bad.
