The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has revoked the Emergency Use Authorization (EUAs) for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine in treating coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).
The decision comes with context in a letter written by Denis M. Hinton, chief scientist of the FDA, to the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) on Monday morning. BARDA Deputy Assistant Secretary and Director of the Medical Countermeasure Programs Gary L. Disbrow, PhD, originally wrote the FDA requesting the 2 malaria drugs be revoked of their EUAs on the basis of continuously evolving public health response information.
