Farmaconutrición de la vitamina B12 para COVID-19

Palabras clave: COVID-19, Vitamina B12, SDRA, Cuidado Crítico, Farmaconutrición

Resumen

La mortalidad por la enfermedad de COVID-19 es mayor en los ancianos, muchos de los cuales sucumben al síndrome de dificultad respiratoria aguda (SDRA) desencadenado por la infección viral. La vitamina B12 parenteral en dosis altas ofrece una nueva terapia prometedora para los pacientes con COVID-19 con SDRA por sepsis/choque séptico. Las propiedades antiinflamatorias y antioxidantes de la vitamina B12 y las transcobalaminas pueden modular la inflamación sistémica, que contribuye a la cascada de citocinas que conduce al SDRA. Se requieren estudios clínicos para establecer un régimen apropiado para administrar vitamina B12 como farmaconutriente, para pacientes críticamente enfermos con COVID-19.
