Corticosteroid therapy for critically ill patients with the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.

Abstract:

Rationale

Corticosteroid therapy is commonly used among critically ill patients with the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), but its impact on outcomes is uncertain. Analyses of observational studies often do not account for patients’ clinical condition at the time of corticosteroid therapy initiation.

Objectives

To investigate the association of corticosteroid therapy on mortality and on MERS coronavirus RNA clearance in critically ill patients with MERS.
