There is one clinical trial.
In COVID-19 deep airway and alveolar destruction occurred due to inflammatory reaction resulting into severe pneumonia. In COVID-19, lung injury is not only due to viral damage to tissue, but it is also due to immune response that leads to activation of inflammatory cells and release of cytokines. In COVID-19 acute respiratory distress syndrome ARDS is produced due to mucinous or cellular fibromyxoid exudates, desquamation of pneumocytes and alveolar damage and hyaline membrane development and within 5-7 days disease become more aggressive due to pneumonia and respiratory failure. It is important to start the prompt and strengthen treatment for suppression of inflammatory response and cytokine storm. Methylprednisolone are the traditional immunosuppressive drugs. They are important and effective to delay the pneumonia progression and treating the ARDS. Corticosteroids are broadly used as treatment for ARDS and there was an evidence for its efficacy for treating SARS and decreasing mortality of SARS in the past. However for COVID-19 corticosteroids efficacy and safety usage is still under clinical trials

An HTML report was created for each of the unique drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms associated with COVID-19 clinical trials. Each report contains a list of either the drug, the MeSH terms, or the HPO terms. All of the terms in a category are displayed on the left-hand side of the report to enable easy navigation, and the reports contain a list of correlated drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms. Further, all reports contain the details of the clinical trials in which the term is referenced. Every clinical trial report shows the mapped HPO and MeSH terms, which are also hyperlinked. Related HPO terms, with their associated genes, protein mutations, and SNPs are also referenced in the report.Drug Reports MeSH Reports HPO Reports
