Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
In some of the first cases of SARS, antibiotics were used with no success. Once it was determined that SARS was a virus, the antiviral drug ribavirin was used, sometimes in combination with corticosteroids. However, information is limited on whether or not these drugs will decrease the overall disease severity and death from SARS.
