Favorable outcome on viral load and culture viability using #Ivermectin in early treatment of non-hospitalized patients with mild #COVID-19 – A double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial

Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic agent, also has anti-viral properties. Our aim was to assess whether ivermectin can shorten the viral shedding in patients at an early-stage of COVID-19 infection.

Ultra-processed #foods consumption and #diet quality of European children, adolescents and adults: results from the I.Family study

Energy intake from Ultra Processed Foods (UPFs) represents almost half of the daily energy intake within our study population, and this trend decrease progressively with age with no differences by cultural and socio-economic status.•Considering the quintiles of the dietary share of UPFs, energy intake increases across the quintiles, and diet quality is significantly lower in …
