Thanks to John Kingsley for undertaking research on this issue – I’m compiling links to what I know so far.

According to John: “This drug is still pre clinical. And even though its combination of compounds has been used to treat Malaria, it works only on certain strains not all. But it has severe side effects and contra indications. High level of cardiac toxicity. Yet to be confirmed, but few of our doctors have passed away “allegedly” self administering this drug as a prophylaxis.”

    FDA may make a lot of mistakes but Sweden first banned it, now FDA. I don’t have time to study the studies, but it is obvious that they do not cure 100% – leaving a lot of play for placebo and random effects.

    For a disease where very few actually die, the level of proof needed for a cure is enormous, and statistically I don’t believe that’s happened. Instead, a lot of side effects have been demonstrated.
