In this study, the effects of a combination of vitamin C, thiamine (vitamin B1), and hydrocortisone were investigated in a treatment group of 53 patients with severe pneumonia. These patients were compared to a control group of 46 patients who did not receive this micronutrient combination. The results showed that the mortality rate decreased significantly and radiological findings improved. More details can be found in the study.
