Vitamins, steroid could prevent sepsis-associated death
June 28 2017. The June 2017 issue of the journal CHEST reports the finding of a benefit for intravenous thiamin (vitamin B1), vitamin C and the steroid hydrocortisone in prevention of organ failure and death in patients with septic shock, a condition characterized by low blood pressure and cellular metabolism abnormalities that occurs in response to infection.
"New therapeutic approaches to sepsis are desperately required," remarked lead investigator Paul E. Marik, MD, who is the Chief of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk. "Our results suggest that early use of intravenous vitamin C, together with corticosteroids and thiamine may prove to be effective in preventing progressive organ dysfunction, including acute kidney injury, and reducing the mortality of patients with severe sepsis and septic shock."
