Ribavirin and interferon for critically ill patients with Middle East Respiratory Coronavirus (MERS-Cov) infection

Abstract:
This is a retrospective study that was based on a multicenter database of critically ill patients from six centers in Saudi Arabia. Demographic, physiologic data and outcome were collected. Additionally, data were collected on the use of ribavirin and interferon. We examined the association of using ribavirin, interferon, or the combination on hospital mortality. We constructed a logistic regression model adjusting for age, presence of diabetes, chronic kidney disease, invasive mechanical ventilation and use of vasopressors.
