"A total of 78 patients with similar demographic and disease characteristics were enrolled. There was a significant reduction in ICU admissions (2 out of 39 vs. 11 out of 39, P=0.006), intubation (1 out of 39 vs. 9 out of 39, P=0.007) and death (0 vs. 5, P=0.027) in the bromhexine treated group compared to the standard group. No patients were withdrawn from the study because of adverse effects."


If you were wondering, Bromhexine is an expectorant/mucolytic agent. Bromhexine is not available in the United States. ( source : https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/bromhexine )


It's not? This shocks me... It's the most common cough medicine agent in Sweden.
