Report on the use of high-dose melatonin in 10 pneumonia patients, showing clinical stabilization and/or improvement for all patients within 4-5 days. All patients survived, including 3 with moderately severe ARDS and one with mild ARDS. None required mechanical ventilation.
risk of death, 93.5% lower, RR 0.06, p = 0.08, treatment 0 of 7 (0.0%), control 12 of 34 (35.3%), NNT 2.8, relative risk is not 0 because of continuity correction due to zero events (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm), COVID+.
risk of mechanical ventilation, 89.4% lower, RR 0.11, p = 0.32, treatment 0 of 7 (0.0%), control 7 of 34 (20.6%), NNT 4.9, relative risk is not 0 because of continuity correction due to zero events (with reciprocal of the contrasting arm), COVID+.
hospitalization time, 33.8% lower, relative time 0.66, treatment 7, control 34, COVID+.
