Therapeutic Interventions for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in pediatrics
Pediatric Emergency Care and Medicine: Open Access is pleased to announce Special issue on “Therapeutic Interventions for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in pediatrics”.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to spread globally, although early-hit nations are finally seeing flattening of their incidence curves from mitigation strategies. Age, comorbidity, and male sex seem to be risk factors for poor outcomes but questions remain about optimal critical care management, effective treatment, and relaxation of mitigation strategies.
Children at all ages were susceptible to COVID-19, but no significant gender difference was found. Clinical manifestations of pediatric patients were generally less severe than those of adults’ patients. However, young children, particularly infants, were vulnerable to 2019-nCoV infection
The aim of this Special Issue is to propose possible therapeutics and the related mechanisms for targeting one or more pathways to combat the progress of the COVID-19 disease and/or associated symptoms.
It is hoped that the findings and strategy adopted in this Special Issue will encourage clinical trials and Potential Therapeutic Interventions For Coronavirus Disease in pediatrics.
