    Effect of low-to-moderate-dose corticosteroids on mortality of hospitalized adolescents and adults with influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 viral pneumonia
    The authors analyzed the effect of corticosteroids to reduce mortality from pneumonia caused by a specific strain of influenza A called (H1N1)pdm09. Using observational data of hospitalized adolescent and adult patients with this type of pneumonia, the findings suggest that low-to-moderate-dose corticosteroids might reduce the mortality of patients with severe pneumonia that causes low blood oxygen levels. However, there was no indication that patients with less severe disease benefited from corticosteroid therapy.
