Ventilatory management and general supportive care of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in the adult population have led to significant clinical improvements, but morbidity and mortality remain high. Pharmacologic strategies acting on the coagulation cascade, inflammation, oxidative stress, and endothelial cell injury have been targeted in the last decade for patients with ARDS, but only a few of these have shown potential benefits with a meaningful clinical response and improved patient outcomes. The lack of availability of specific pharmacologic treatments for ARDS can be attributed to its complex pathophysiology, different risk factors, huge heterogeneity, and difficult classification into specific biological phenotypes and genotypes.

Abstract

Ventilatory management and general supportive care of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in the adult population have led to significant clinical improvements, but morbidity and mortality remain high. Pharmacologic strategies acting on the coagulation cascade, inflammation, oxidative stress, and endothelial cell injury have been targeted in the last decade for patients with ARDS, but only a few of these have shown potential benefits with a meaningful clinical response and improved patient outcomes. The lack of availability of specific pharmacologic treatments for ARDS can be attributed to its complex pathophysiology, different risk factors, huge heterogeneity, and difficult classification into specific biological phenotypes and genotypes.
