  • Steroid shows promising results in Severe CoronaVirus Patients...

    Uh oh...they can't demonize "steroids" anymore LOL


    Scientists may be on the verge of a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) breakthrough after discovering a low-cost drug they say is the first to reduce virus-related fatalities for patients on oxygen.

    After successfully carrying out a 6,000-patient trial, scientists found Dexamethasone -- a well-known, inexpensive steroid -- dramatically helped those with severe cases of the virus, the scientists at the University of Oxford in England announced.


    One-third of the patients in the trial that were receiving ventilation had a reduced death rate, as did the one-fifth of patients on oxygen when treated with Dexamethasone, the scientists said. Patients who did not require respiratory support apparently did not benefit from the drug.

    National Health Service doctors will use the steroid will to treat COVID-19 patients starting Tuesday afternoon, Matt Hancock, Britain’s health secretary, The New York Times reports. The government had already acquired about 200,000 doses after seeing potential in its use, Hancock said.


    ‘Dexamethasone is the first drug to be shown to improve survival in COVID-19," said Peter Horby, Professor of Emerging Infectious Diseases in the Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford.

    "This is an extremely welcome result. The survival benefit is clear and large in those patients who are sick enough to require oxygen treatment, so dexamethasone should now become standard of care in these patients. Dexamethasone is inexpensive, on the shelf, and can be used immediately to save lives worldwide."

    This is a corticosteroid. As much as I want steroids not to be demonized I don't think the general public will see it this way. As it stands cortisone shots don't justify Tren blasts in the public eye.

      Thats a great point but on the other hand, the general public is so dumb when it comes to "steroids" that they don't even know LOW T commercials is testosterone and the same drug they consider Cheating LOL.

        True. T-gel = good for you, "steroids" = dangerous drugs for cheaters 🤷‍♂️
