Hello, guys. My far relative has caught SARS. I have heard that ribavirin is used for treating SARS. I know that this drug is also used for HIV patients. I would like to know if ribavirin can reduce death rate of SARS. What can anyone tell me about this? Thank you in advance.

Hello. Ribavirin has been approved to be efficient in SARS treatment. This drug is indeed used for treating AIDS. It is considered to be drug with wide antiviral spectrum. It prevents replication of many DNA and RNA viruses. Many studies have shown that ribavirin reduced death rate. Of course, ribavirin was not the only used drug here. Oseltamivir and broad-spectrum antibiotics were also used with intravenous ribavirin. I hope this helps. Bye!
