Malacanang asks FDA to study Fabunan’s anti-viral injection vs. Covid-19

Malacanang has heard the clamor of its citizen’s to give the anti-viral injection from San Marcelino, Zambales a chance.

It has ordered the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to study the effectiveness of the Fabunan anti-viral injection in curing the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Harry Roque said in an interview with Radyo Pilipinas said the FDA should check if Fabunan is safe and effective for use in the treatment of Covid-19.

“Bakit ba hindi napag-aralan ‘yung sinasabing anti-viral injection ni Fabunan at once and for all, magdeklara ang FDA -- ito ba ay safe to use or hindi (Why is there no study about the Fabunan anti-viral injection so that, once and for all, the FDA could declare if it is safe to use or not),” Roque said.
Washington-based Filipino doctor Ruben Fabunan had a video before that is now long been deleted, claims that a patented anti-viral drug against dengue he developed, has been “proven to be used to treat Covid-19” and is already an “approved” drug.

Last April 8, an advisory issued by the FDA warned the public that no drug  vaccine has been licensed “specifically for use in Covid-19 treatment.”

Atty. Roque cited the need to conduct a study about the effectiveness of Fabunan to stop confusion among individuals who think that the drug can treat Covid-19.
“Habang hindi ginagawa at hindi nagdedeklara ng ganiyan ang FDA, palaging madaming maniniwala na baka ito (Fabunan) na nga ang lunas (So long as there is no official declaration from FDA, many will still believe that it is the cure),” he said. “So sabi ko pag-aralan na nga kung ano iyan at magkaroon na ng pronouncement ang FDA (So the FDA should study it and make a pronouncement).”
The Presidential Spokesman said there should be a scientific basis that Fabunan can be used for Covid-19 treatment or prevention.
 “Kinakailangan ay siyensiya pa rin ang umiral nang malaman natin kung iyan ba ay banta o mabuti sa kalusugan ng ating mga kababayan (There should be a scientific basis so we would know if it is good or bad for public health),” he said.

In a Facebook post last March 31, the Fabunan Medical Clinic clarified that the anti-viral injection is not commercially sold.
