"THIS IS A MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH." —The FLCCC News Capsule for April 16, 2023
A Compendium of the Latest COVID-19 News, Facts & Features
In what is being hailed as a major victory in the war against repurposed drugs, the CHEST Journal—the preeminent peer-reviewed scientific journal of physicians who specialize in diseases of the chest— upheld the scientific integrity of Dr. Paul Marik’s seminal 2017 study on sepsis.
In March of 2022, baseless allegations from an unqualified source were publicly made on social media and to the CHEST Journal, claiming intentional statistical errors in the 2017 peer-reviewed study led by Dr. Marik entitled “Hydrocortisone, Vitamin C, and Thiamine for the Treatment of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock: A Retrospective Before-After Study.” After receiving the complaint, the CHEST Journal launched a thorough review of the study that lasted almost one year.
“If you challenge the narrative and show that your treatment is actually efficacious, safer, and cheaper than that being promoted by the CDC, the NIH, the federal government, you are an enemy of the state and they were going to do whatever they could to take me down,” Dr. Marik told Dr. Joseph Mercola in a sweeping new interview that outlines Dr. Marik’s new vision for healthcare.
However, last week, Dr. Marik received a letter from the journal stating that the investigation found no errors in the methodology as cited by the allegations. The journal affirmed its publication of Dr. Marik’s landmark research that pioneered the use of intravenous Vitamin C to treat medical sepsis.
“This is a major breakthrough,” said Dr. Marik. “We were fighting against enormous forces. They were determined to take me down with baseless allegations of scientific fraud. My whole professional career and integrity was at stake — and they failed.”
In an emotional video—and with voices breaking— Dr. Marik spoke with Dr. Pierre Kory about the enormous implications of the decision by CHEST to uphold the findings in the study—and by extension, the whole of Dr. Marik’s (and the FLCCC’s) scientific integrity.
“The journal found no evidence of any ethical concerns,” Dr. Kory told Dr. Marik. “There has been endless persecution from everywhere. They tried to take you down. It didn’t work. We are going to keep going.”
The brotherly bond between these two physicians—both titans of medicine— has been forged by seemingly insurmountable armies arrayed against them. Relentless battles over the course of three years have indeed taken an unsparing toll on both of these heroes. But this moment of clear victory is sweet because, as Dr. Kory reminds us, “It restores a little bit of faith and trust that there are good people out there trying to be fair.”
And so we soldier on…for patients’ lives the world over.
Writing in The New York Daily News, (for the very first time!) Dr. Kory explains what it really means to “follow the science” and calls on Congress to rebalance the role of a central regulatory state with the power of a doctor’s judgment.
“Doctors thinking critically and trusting their own experience has formed the foundation of medicine for a thousand years. They apply the scientific method, testing different approaches to heal patients, building on what works and discarding what doesn’t.
“On our present course, where doctors are trained to be less curious and blindly follow standards of care rather than developing and testing treatment hypotheses, we’re going to see fewer medical breakthroughs. RCTs produce some useful data, but they must be complemented with the real-world evidence doctors accrue every day in practice that helps to translate our approved treatments into improved health and life expectancy.”
Over 170 physicians from throughout the country have signed a letter demanding that the American Board of Family Medicine reinstate the Board Certification of Dr. John Littell.
They write, in part:
“As physicians and scientists we note with concern the disciplinary action by the American Board of Family Medicine, dated March 16, 2023, suspending the board certification of John Littell, MD, justifying this arbitrary and unwarranted action on the grounds that Dr. Littell allegedly disseminated “medical misinformation” via public channels. The ABFM’s letter notifying Dr. Littell of the disciplinary action not only fails to demonstrate adequate grounds for such punishment, but is itself riddled with scientific errors and inaccuracies, which could be considered “medical misinformation” in their own right. In drawing your attention to these misstatements and false claims, we request an immediate reinstatement of Dr. Littell’s board certification as well as a public apology to Dr. Littell, whose long service as a conscientious clinician is reflected in his sterling professional reputation.”
The FLCCC stands behind this letter — and Dr. Littell — without hesitation. This letter is important to share as widely as possible…so please do so if you can. Thanks.

Since Sylvester’s passing, the Taylor family has heard countless stories like theirs from other families all over the United States concerning the use of Remdesivir, and the treatment of patients which seemed to be punitive because of their vaccine status. Watch the Taylors' For The Record now.
Rusty had heard about ivermectin from a documentary cameraman, so when COVID was in the news, he decided to research its effect on COVID and came across The Highwire and The FLCCC. Find out how he used the I-PREVENT and I-CARE protocols with great success in this MyStory.
This edition of Long (COVID) Story Short, our Dr. Been discusses how chronic stress and a high amount of alcohol consumption can cause disruption of the glymphatic system of the brain. This disruption can in turn lead to progression of Alzheimer's Disease and deterioration of other executive functions of the brain. Watch it HERE.
💊 Also, Dr. Been sat down this week for an important discussion with our Dr. Keith Berkowitz. The doctors, who will both be speaking at the FLCCC’s upcoming educational conference, took a deep dive into the management of Long COVID.
“The whole world went through a pandemic, and we are not emerging out of it in a healthy state. Doctors have to have open minds, look at the evidence, and do the studies,” noted Dr. Been.
A trip to the hospital is sometimes unavoidable. If you are scheduled for surgery, you may feel understandably anxious, not just because you will be under anesthesia and not aware of what is happening to your body, but also because of things you may have heard about hospitals during the pandemic.
This guide to planning for anesthesia in the COVID era is written by the FLCCC’s Manager of Clinical Support and Education, Kristina Morros, MS, CRNA, who has 22 years of clinical experience as a nurse anesthetist. It is designed to help patients anticipate and plan for anesthesia, surgery, and a post-operative stay in the hospital.
💊 Our own Kristina Morros, CRNA will be hosting a Twitter Space on Friday, April 21 at 11am ET to discuss the new anesthesia guide and to answer your questions. So mark your calendars!
