Fabunan antiviral injections not yet approved - Malacanang

The Fabunan anti-viral vaccine has been touted as the answer to the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19 that is from the people who have been and around the province of Zambales where Dr. Fabunan has a clinic.

According to Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Harry Roque there is no truth to the rumors that has been going around that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte himself has approved the use of the Fabunan antiviral injections against the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19.

Also, the Presidential Spokesperson said the Fabunan antiviral vaccine has not even undergone the standard procedure  of undergoing a clinical studies yet.

“Hindi po totoo ‘yan (That’s not true)!” Roque said over PTV-4 on Saturday (May 30), referring to the rumors involving the controversial drug.
“Ang nangyari po, sumulat po sa opisina ko ang isang Atty. Fabunan at finorward ko po ang letter niya kay DOST (Department of Science and Technology) Secretary [Fortunato] Dela Peña (What happened was a certain Atty. Fabunan wrote to me and I forwarded his letter to Secretary Dela Peña),” he added.

Revocation of Professional license

It was earlier reported that the Department of Health (DOH) said it will revoke the professional licenses of those medical doctors who will sell and inject any COVID-19 patient with the “Fabunan antiviral vaccine.”

Atty. Roque said the Fabunan antiviral drug has a cease-and-desist order (CDO) from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“May cease-and-desist order ang Fabunan galing sa FDA kasi wala pa pong tinatawag na clinical studies (The Fabunan drug has a COD from the FDA because the product has not undergone clinical studies),” he said.

“Importante po kasi na bago maibigay sa publiko ang kahit anong gamot, kasama na po diyan yung Fabunan, kinakailangan rehistrado sa FDA (It’s important that before the public gets access to any drug, including the Fabunan, these must be registered with the FDA),” he continued.

“Kung hindi po siya approved ng FDA at ng Department of Health, ‘wag po tayo mag-eksperimento ng mga gamot na hindi naman po natin alam at wala naman po tayong kasiguraduhan sa kanyang bisa (If it’s not approved by the FDA and the DOH, let’s not experiment with medicines whose effectivity we are unsure of),” Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said last month.
