Abstract

ROSSETTI, Cristian Alan; REAL, Juan Pablo  and  PALMA, Santiago Daniel. High dose Of ascorbic acid used in SARS Covid-19 treatment: scientific and clinical support for its therapeutic implementation. Ars Pharm [online]. 2020, vol.61, n.2, pp.145-148.  Epub July 20, 2020. ISSN 2340-9894.  http://dx.doi.org/10.30827/ars.v61i2.15164.

The 2019 coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has been declared a public health emergency of international concern by the World Health Organization. Due to the sudden appearance of this pandemic process associated with increasing morbidity and mortality worldwide, various treatments have been implemented. In this framework, high doses of vitamin C began to be used in critically ill patients.

We analyze the clinical trials and/or research papers available in the literature. Although more evidence on its effectiveness is needed is important for the specialist to understand the clinical logic of this use to determine if it is correct as a concomitant treatment.

Conclusions:

It seems that using high doses of vitamin C parenterally is a safe, available and economical alternative especially for critically ill patients.

Keywords : Covid-19; Treatment; Vitamin C.
