Patients experiencing more severe disease, such as inflammation in their lungs, and who require high amounts of oxygen or ventilator support, often receive anti-inflammatory treatment. “There are a number of receptors and pathways within our body that the virus can trigger and cause an immune response, which then causes a global inflammation or inflammatory response,” said Dr. Vinay Maheshwari, Hugh R. Sharp Jr. Chair of Medicine and physician executive of The Medical Group at ChristianaCare.
