COVID-19 is a major health threat around the world causing hundreds of millions of infections and millions of deaths. There is a pressing global need for effective therapies. We hypothesized that leukotriene inhibitors (LTI), that have been shown to lower IL6 and IL8 levels, may have a protective effect in patients with COVID-19.
In this retrospective controlled cohort study, we compared death rates in COVID-19 patients who were taking a LTI with those who were not taking an LTI. We used the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Corporate Data Warehouse (CDW) to create a cohort of COVID-19 positive patients and tracked their use of leukotriene inhibitors between November 1, 2019 and November, 11, 2021.
Of the 1,677,595 cohort of patients tested for COVID-19, 189,195 patients tested positive for COVID-19. 40,701 were admitted and 38,184 had an oxygen requirement, 1,214 were taking an LTI. The use of Dexamethasone plus a Leukotriene Inhibitor in hospital showed a survival advantage of 13.5% (CI: 0.23% – 26.7%; p<0.01) in patients presenting with a minimal O2Sat of 50% or less. For patients with an O2Sat of <60 and < 50% if they were on LTIs as outpatients, continuing the LTI led to a 14.4% and 22.25 survival advantage if they were continued on the medication as inpatients.
When combined Dexamethasone and LTIs provided a mortality benefit in COVID 19 patients presenting with an O2 Saturations < 50%.. The LTI cohort had lower markers of inflammation and cytokine storm.
