Dexamethasone
pronounced as (dex a meth' a sone)

Dexamethasone, a corticosteroid, is similar to a natural hormone produced by your adrenal glands. It often is used to replace this chemical when your body does not make enough of it. It relieves inflammation (swelling, heat, redness, and pain) and is used to treat certain forms of arthritis; skin, blood, kidney, eye, thyroid, and intestinal disorders (e.g., colitis); severe allergies; and asthma.
Dexamethasone is also used to treat certain types of cancer.

This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

To be clear, ang advantage po nyan ayon sa study ay doon lamang sa mga pasyenteng malala na naka-ventilator or oxygen. Sa mild cases na hindi naman hirap makahinga ay wala pong epekto yan ayon sa pag-aaral. Kaya nga ang sinabi ay "... cuts risk of death by a third for patients on ventilators, by a fifth for those on oxygen", meaning pinatataas nito ang survivial rate ng "specific" na mga pasyente. Maliwanag na siguro ito sa lahat.
