Researchers from Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center have studied the prophylactic effects of prazosin, an alpha-1 adrenergic receptor antagonist, on cytokine storms and ARDS.
The use of blood thinners is a notable highlight, as it can prevent blood clotting and reduce complications.
These cytokine storms can reduce the lungs’ ability to participate in gas exchange and then lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
By stopping the cytokine storms, the researchers hope to prevent ARDS complications and save lives.
The drug costs $25 per month and is used by millions of people over the last two decades, per Knowridge.
