FDA grants Ivermectin compassionate special permit to another hospital

/ 09:25 AM April 16, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Another hospital has been granted a compassionate special permit (CSP) to use Ivermectin in the treatment of COVID-19, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Director-General Eric Domingo disclosed Friday.

Domingo did not disclose which hospital was given the second CSP for Ivermectin. He merely said it is a private hospital.


“Two hospitals na actually ‘yung nag-apply sa atin and have been given CSP,” Domingo said in an interview with ABS-CBN News Channel’s Headstart.

Domingo also confirmed the information to INQUIRER.net in a text message.


On April 8, FDA announced it has granted a hospital, the name of which was not disclosed due to privacy issues, a CSP for the use of Ivermectin to counter COVID-19.

The FDA gives CSP to allow limited use of investigational drugs or unregistered drugs.
