Didier Raoult falsify his results on hydroxychloroquine?

New controversy around Pr. Raoult. According to a Mediapart investigation, the director of the IHU in Marseille would have falsified his results to demonstrate the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine.

Pr. Didier Raoult does not stop spilling ink. In October 2021, the investigative journal Mediapart revealed that the director of the University Hospital Institute (IHU) of Marseille carried out a problematic trial concerning drugs against tuberculosis, without authorization or supervision, between 2017 and 2021.

New controversy, new investigation by our colleagues from Mediapart : to demonstrate the effectiveness of his hobbyhorse against Covid-19, hydroxychloroquine, Didier Raoult allegedly falsified scientific results and exerted pressure on several members of the IHU.

“The threshold of positivity of PCR tests has been modified” in favor of hydroxychloroquine

According to Mediapart, “more than ten people (biologists, doctors, interns or assistants)“to the IHU would have denounced”the falsification of biological results allowing to conclude the beneficial effect of hydroxychloroquine by biasing the results of PCR tests in a study comparing IHU patients taking the treatment and Nice CHU patients not taking it“.

Very concretely, “as the results did not agree with Didier Raoult, the positivity threshold for PCR tests was changed, thus rendering a greater number of results negative for the patients followed in Marseille.

The reported facts, if they were proven, would constitute serious dysfunctions“responded the Assistance Publique des Hospitals de Marseille (AP-HM). This Friday, November 19, 2021, an internal investigation was requested by the health authorities.
