*, now with p = 0.000000015 from 26 studies.
No treatment is 100% effective. Protocols combine treatments. * >10% efficacy, ≥3 studies.
4,300+ studies for 75 treatments. c19early.org
Meta analysis of 13 curcumin RCTs showing lower mortality with treatment. Authors note that subgroup analysis suggested improved efficacy with early treatment and with combined treatment.
4 meta analyses show significant improvements with curcumin for mortality1-4, hospitalization1,4, recovery3, and symptoms1.
Currently there are 26 curcumin for COVID-19 studies, showing 63% lower mortality [36‑78%], 80% lower ventilation [25‑95%], 78% lower ICU admission [-27‑96%], and 27% lower hospitalization [18‑35%].
risk of death, 62.0% lower, RR 0.38, p = 0.003.
Effect extraction follows pre-specified rules prioritizing more serious outcomes. Submit updates
