Clinicians in Fife have played an important role in the development of a new breakthrough treatment for patients with COVID-19.
NHS Fife has been a research site in the RECOVERY Trial, a UK-wide research project looking at a number of potential treatment options for patients with the virus.
The most significant breakthrough in the project so far has been the discovery that the use of a particular steroid, dexamethasone, can reduce deaths by as much as one-third in patients requiring intensive care and one-fifth in patients requiring oxygen.
As a result of this clinical trial, the use of dexamethasone has now become the standard treatment the care of patients with moderate and severe COVID-19.
The Principal Investigator for the trial in Fife is Dr Devesh Dhasmana, a Consultant in Respiratory Medicine, who is working alongside NHS Fife’s Research and Development Department to co-ordindate the project locally.
The RECOVERY project is one of a number of clinical trials NHS Fife’s Research and Development Department is supporting to improve the treatment of COVID-19 and a host of other conditions.
Last year alone, NHS Fife’s Research and Development programme was involved in over 250 different studies, ranging from international multi-centre drug trials to short term student projects.
