Matthias Briel; Mirjam Christ-Crain

Status: completed Duration: Feb 2015 - Sep 2016

We will undertake a systematic review and IPD meta-analysis of all available RCTs to study the benefits and possible harms of using adjunctive low-dose corticosteroids in the treatment of patients with CAP. Specifically we will investigate whether treatment effects differ across pre-specified patient subgroups.
