In the contest of the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) Trieste 2020, Saturday 5 September from 14.30 to 16.00 p.m. at the Trieste Convention Center Room 28H, Porto Vecchio, Trieste, there will be the lecture Eexperiences of pandemic crisis surge and research-guided responses", by the University of Trieste.
The COVID-19 pandemic has reoriented the axis of ESOF2020, and biomedical science has taken on a central role. Hospital structures have worked relentlessly in the past months and all scientific sectors have collaborated globally to produce tangible and translational results. The session entitled “Experiences of pandemic crisis surge and research-guided responses” will therefore focus on the treatment protocol for the most severe cases of COVID-19 pneumonia: a prolonged low dose cortisone-based therapy administered intravenously. The treatment has been designed by the department of Pneumology of ASUGI - Trieste, in collaboration with 14 Italian research centres, and has been proved to reduce by 71% the risk of mortality in patients.
The panel has been organised by Marco Confalonieri, manager of ASUGI and professor of respiratory system diseases at the University of Trieste, in collaboration with Nicolò de Manzini, Dean of the Department of Medicine, Surgery and Health Sciences, and with the support of Roberto Di Lenarda, Rector of the University of Trieste. The panel will be moderated by Sergio Paoletti, President of AREA Science Park, and professors Gerard J. Criner (Temple University - Philadelphia), Mauro Giacca (University of Trieste, King’s College London), Patrick Maxwell (Cambridge University), and doctor Philippe Buchy (Director of Scientific Affairs and Public Health at GSK Vaccines Singapore) will participate in the session with their different experiences and contributions.
