Anti-inflammatory defended over time people recover from severe covid – Medicine


(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 13 – Prescribing an anti-inflammatory drug (such as a cortisone) at discharge may reduce the risk of long-term death for people who are at risk for a severe form of SARS-CoV-2 infection. deaths in a year of hospitalization are more than double the average.

This is suggested by a study published in the journal Frontiers in Medicine and conducted at the University of Florida: Experts have revealed that covid patients who are hospitalized have reached higher levels of inflammation in the blood, the C-reactive protein), are those most at risk of dying from any cause, in years after hospitalization.

Even researchers in previous work found that patients who were hospitalized with severe covid had more than doubled the risk of dying year-round after hospitalization, compared with those who took moderate or moderate covid.

In this new study, U.S. experts showed in a group of 1207 hospitalized patients for covid that people with higher levels of C-reactive protein during hospitalization had a risk of death (from any cause for the entire first year). the discharge) of 61.% higher than in patients who had low levels of C-reactive protein during hospitalization. Clinicians hypothesize that high levels of inflammation occur in the body of patients during the acute infection persists over time even after recovery, increasing the risk of death of the cured person for the entire year after hospitalization.
