view all Clinical Trials

Overview

As shown by the data available, hyper-inflammation, caused by a cytokine storm resulting from an exaggerated response of the immune system to the presence of the virus, is considered to represent one of the most important negative prognostic factor in patients infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The objective of this study is to investigate new possibilities to reduce the number of patients requiring mechanical ventilation. This is intended to address the most urgent need to preserve the access to intensive care unit support to the lowest possible number of patients and may potentially reduce mortality.
