June 15, 2020: COVID-19 Update: FDA Revokes Emergency Use Authorization for chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate

Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine News – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has revoked its Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) regarding chlroquine and hydroxychloroquine as it has been found that these drugs do not effectively treat COVID-19.

Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine Information

On June 15, 2020, the FDA issued a letter revoking its EUA for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine as to treatment for COVID-19. The FDA has based this revocation on facts that have become available throughout this pandemic. Clinical trial results have shown that hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine may not be effective in treating COVID-19 cases. In fact, it is noted that the possible benefits do not outweigh the potential and known risks.

This decision was issued after analysis of new and previously available information.

The FDA also advised in a different notice today that remdesivir should not be co-administered with chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine, as it could potentially reduce the effectiveness of remdesivir. It continues to be evaluated, but preliminary clinical trial results have shown that remdesivir can lead to a quicker recovery from COVID-19.
