Zelenko Prophylactic and Treatment Protocol for COVID-19

A retrospective study analyzing Dr Zelenko's patient data was accepted for publication after a rigorous peer review process. The study finds that early intervention and treatment of high-risk patients with COVID-19 resulted in significantly fewer hospitalizations and deaths. The treatment consisting of zinc, low-dose hydroxychloroquine, and azithromycin, is also referred to as "The Zelenko Protocol."

Zelenko Covid-19 Prophylaxis Protocol

Prophylaxis is an action taken to prevent or protect against a specified disease. Greek in origin, from the word "phylax", meaning "to guard" and "watching." 
  

Low Risk Patients

Young healthy people do not need prophylaxis against Covid 19.  In young and healthy people, this infection causes mild cold-like symptoms.  It is advantageous for these patients to be exposed to Covid-19, build up their antibodies and have their immune system clear the virus.  This will facilitate the development of herd immunity and help prevent future Covid-19 pandemics.  However, if these patients desire prophylaxis against Covid-19, then they should take the protocol noted below.


Moderate Risk Patients

Patients from this category are healthy but have high potential viral-load exposure.  This group includes medical personnel, caregivers of high-risk patients, people who use public transportation, first responders and other essential personnel who are crucial to the continued functioning of society.  These patients should be encouraged to take prophylaxis against Covid-19 in accordance with the protocol noted below.


High Risk Patients

Patients are considered high risk if they are over the age of 45, or if they are younger than 45 but they have comorbidities, that is, they have other health conditions that put them at risk.  These patients have between a 5 to 10% mortality rate if they are infected with Covid-19.  These patients should be strongly encouraged to take prophylaxis against Covid-19 in accordance with the protocol noted below.


Protocol for Low and Moderate Risk Patients:

Elemental Zinc 25mg 1 time a day (PubMed)
Vitamin D3 5000iu 1 time a day
Vitamin C 1000mg 1 time a day (PubMed)
Quercetin 500mg 1 time a day until a safe and efficacious vaccine becomes available. If Quercetin is unavailable, then use Epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG) 400mg 1 time a day (J. Agric. Food Chem. 2014)


Protocol for High Risk Patients:
Elemental Zinc 25mg once a day 
Vitamin D3 5000iu 1 time a day
Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) 200mg 1 time a day for 5 days, then 1 time a week until a safe and efficacious vaccine becomes available
If HCQ is unavailable, then use the Protocol for Low and Moderate Risk Patients.

Zelenko Protocol - Treatment Plan for Patients with Covid-19 symptoms

Fundamental Principles

Risk Stratify Patients 

Low risk patient - Younger than 45, no comorbidities, and clinically stable

High risk patient - Older than 45, younger than 45 with comorbidities, or clinically unstable


Treatment Options

Low risk patients - over the counter options:


1. Elemental Zinc 50mg 1 time a day for 7 days (PubMed)

2.1. Quercetin 500mg 2 times a day for 7 days (PubMed) OR

2.2 Epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG) 400mg 1 time a day for 7 days (J. Agric. Food Chem. 2014)

3. Vitamin C 1000mg 1 time a day for 7 days 
4. Vitamin D3 5000iu 1 time a day for 7 days


High risk patients


1. Elemental Zinc 50mg 1 time a day for 7 days 

2. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) 200mg 2 times a day for 7 days  

If HCQ is not available, Quercetin 500mg 3 times a day for 7 days or

EGCG 400mg 2 times a day for 7 days

3. Azithromycin 500mg 1 time a day for 5 days or 

Doxycycline 100mg 2 times a day for 7 days

4. Vitamin C 1000mg 1 time a day for 7 days 

5. Vitamin D3 50000iu 1 time a day for 1 or 2 days

About Dr Vladimir Zelenko

He graduated with a B.A. degree with high honors in Chemistry from Hofstra University. After receiving an academic scholarship to attend S.U.N.Y. at Buffalo School of Medicine, he earned his M.D. degree in May 2000. Dr. Zelenko completed his family medicine residency at South Nassau Communities Hospital in Oceanside, N.Y. in May 2004. Since then, Dr. Zelenko has practiced family medicine in New York’s Hudson Valley. He has been described by his patients as like a family member to thousands of families, and is a medical adviser to the volunteer ambulance corps in Kiryas Joel, New York.

When asked about studies that seemed to discredit the efficacy of HCQ in treating the Chinese coronavirus, Zelenko explained “You don’t fire a gun without a bullet in it and then say the gun doesn’t work when you don’t kill the target. The studies that were done on HCQ did not include the use of Zinc.  HCQ is what opens the cell and enables Zinc to attack the virus. One is not effective without the other, or without a suitable substitute for HCQ. The studies were designed to fail.”

Dr. Zelenko says that both prophylaxis measures and actual case treatments need to be customized to the individual. As a general rule, he says, those people who are in the higher risk groups, both by age and by other pre-existing conditions, require more aggressive actions on both the preventative and diagnostic side.

“This virus remains relatively stable inside the host for about the first five days,” Zelenko says. “After that it starts to multiply rapidly. It also starts to migrate from sinus to lungs and cardio areas where involvement becomes more severe and treatment becomes more difficult. The key is early intervention.”  Zelenko again mentioned his 84% success rate in high-risk patients.
