A little over a year ago—in March of 2022 to be precise—Dr. Kyle Sheldrick, a physician and Ph.D. candidate in Australia, made a series of unsubstantiated allegations of fraud on social media and to the CHEST Journal, claiming that he was able to determine that study data had been fabricated by applying baseless statistical methods to the 2017 peer-reviewed study led by our esteemed Dr. Paul Marik titled “Hydrocortisone, Vitamin C, and Thiamine for the Treatment of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock: A Retrospective Before-After Study.”
After receiving the complaint, the CHEST Journal launched a thorough, year-long review of the study. In April of this year, Dr. Marik received a letter from the journal stating that the investigation found no methodological errors as cited by the allegations.
Now, as a result of a defamation suit filed by Dr. Marik and the FLCCC, Dr. Sheldrick has had to publicly acknowledge regret for questioning the integrity of Dr. Marik, Chief Scientific Officer and founding member of the FLCCC. “I regret this hurt to Dr. Marik,” wrote Sheldrick in his statement. “I will inform those who have reported on this complaint that it has been rejected by the journal.”
Tragically, Sheldrick’s fraudulent and demonstrably baseless complaint against Dr. Marik—America’s most highly published critical care physician—made news. A lot of news.
While the CHEST Journal investigated Sheldrick’s bogus complaint for months, the erstwhile complainant went media hopping… appearing on numerous news programs, granting interviews to print journalists, and posting on social media with a confident cockiness that his complaint letter to Chest would do its job: That is, to publicly and thoroughly disgrace Dr. Marik’s work.
Meanwhile, medical providers treating patients with severe sepsis became reluctant to use the effective “HAT” Protocol (Hydrocortisone, Ascorbic Acid, Thiamine) as outlined in the study.
“In 2022…in September…when my mother sat in a very reputable hospital, I was laughed at by every single one of her doctors and I mean literally laughed at when I proposed the fact of using the HAT protocol for my mother to stop her sepsis. I can say they basically disparaged Dr. Marik and on top of that, they did not give her the protocol—whereupon days later she died of sepsis. That’s a lot of damage done since 2017. I feel absolutely incredibly confident about the fact that had the protocol just been given to my mother, so many things would have fallen into place…Do doctors know the difference now?”
The welfare of all humanity is the reason why the FLCCC’s legal effort to bring Sheldrick to account for his conscienceless attack on Paul’s medical integrity—still sterling and unblemished—was essential. It is scurrilous attacks like his that led to yet another patient being tied to the tracks…unable to get out of the way of a speeding bullet train.
Dr. Marik you are one of the world’s most honored, brilliant, and compassionate heroes. This vindication will now rescue hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of people today, well into the future and far, far beyond. How this must make you feel…quite unimaginable.

This month, our “Here’s a Thought” columnist Jenna McCarthy makes the case that the world is in a post-COVID war between good and evil. She posits that the good is represented by those who risked everything to expose the “wicked agenda.” The evil, she says, “are the individuals who populate the pharmaceutical companies, government agencies, and invisible oligarchy running the show; the ones who ruthlessly, relentlessly put profit over people and don’t just allow widespread suffering, but knowingly facilitate it.”
Uh…whoa, Jenna…nail on the head. You hit it. You’ve got to
