Globally, Scientific’s research and development is suppressed, while subjects are suffering from the COVID19 pandemic attack with its surprising infection/ death ratio, and no standard cure/ care against it still exist. Furthermore, how systemic blood is attacked by provoked cytokines storm in different patients, and their response to Covid19-related organs’ shut down is also not clarified completely.
Generally known that in some people with COVID19, an overreaction of their immune system can damage their lungs, and an anti-inflammatory drug may help reduce this damage and keep them off a ventilator, while the Food and Drug Administration of US has also given the green light to clinical trials of compounds that were still being studied for use in other similar conditions. Beside, mainly steroids are the best anti-inflammatory drugs prescribed when a patient shows signs of a ‘cytokine storm’, classically.
