The Coronavirus continues to spread, now researchers could actually be a breakthrough.Coronavirus* spreads further and further. Now, researchers* may have a breakthrough in the development of a drug listed. The mortality rate decreases after the intake, apparently rapidly. Here you will find the latest Corona case numbers in Germany, as a card* and the basic facts of the Coronavirus*.
Coronavirus: drug could reduce mortality rate significantly
Oxford - Could be the effect of a disease with the Coronavirus in the future by a drug ? As researchers have have now found, could save the anti-inflammatory dexamethasone especially patients who are severely ill patient, the life. Therefore, could be reduced by means of the death rate in severe Covid-19-gradients*.
On provisional results of a clinical study point at least. This, however, is not yet published and, to date, not by others experts have been reviewed.
As the lead scientists the University Oxford now tell, the mortality rate decreased in patients who were artificially ventilated and the drug got to about a third.
Coronavirus: study shows drug can "improve Survival"
"dexamethasone is the first drug which has been shown that it improves the chances of Survival in Covid-19*", clarified Peter Horby, one of the head of the "Recovery"study. "Dexamethasone is a cost-effective, available, and can be used immediately to save lives around the world."
In the "Recovery"-study , scientists are investigating the Suitability of various already-approved medicines against Covid-19 . In total, more than 11,500 patients from over 175 hospitals have been recorded, according to the UK in the study.
The dexamethasone part of the study included the information that a total of 2104 patients about ten days, once a day, six milligrams of the active ingredient got. 4321 patients served as a control group.
Coronavirus: a study with clear results
The mortality rate after 28 days was below the artificially ventilated patients is the highest. It was without a dexamethasone treatment at 41 percent. In the experimental group, it decreased by a third. In the case of the patient, the oxygen got, but not artificially ventilated, it decreased by a fifth. In the case of the patient which needed no oxygen, showed the treatment will have no effect.
the researchers the statement goes on to explain, could, based on these Figures, in the treatment of eight ill Covid-19-patients to the drug a death can be prevented. The preliminary results of the Recovery study were "very clearly" said Martin Landray, another study leader: "dexamethasone reduces the risk of death in patients with severe respiratory complications."
Coronavirus: Is, researchers are now actually a breakthrough?
Nick Cammack, Covid-19-research officer at the Wellcome Foundation, said in a Statement from a breakthrough . The drug should be made available to the Thousands of patients who are severely Ill in the world is now accessible. The London-based and founded in 1936, the Wellcome Foundation for the improvement of global health.
dexamethasone is typically used as anti-inflammatory , around inflammation of the skin and joints.
In Germany, the Corona-Warning-App is gone to the Start. Now it was presented officially.Updated Date: 16 June 2020, 11:33
