    S C A Meijvis
    Department of Internal Medicine, St Antonius Hospital, Nieuwegein, The Netherlands
    J Intern Med 272:25-35. 2012
    ..The aim of this review is to summarize the inflammatory response during pneumonia and discuss the current knowledge and future perspectives regarding the anti-inflammatory treatment options for patients with pneumonia...
  2. doi Microbial evaluation of proton-pump inhibitors and the risk of pneumonia
    S C A Meijvis
    Dept of Internal Medicine, St Antonius Hospital, Nieuwegein, The Netherlands
    Eur Respir J 38:1165-72. 2011
    ..This study reaffirmed that use of PPIs is associated with an increased risk of CAP, especially when treatment has recently been started. Neither protopathic bias nor shifts in microbial aetiology seem to explain the association...
  3. doi Dexamethasone and length of hospital stay in patients with community-acquired pneumonia: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial
    Sabine C A Meijvis
    Department of Internal Medicine, St Antonius Hospital, Nieuwegein, Netherlands
    Lancet 377:2023-30. 2011
    ..We aimed to assess effect of addition of dexamethasone on length of stay in this group, which might result in earlier resolution of pneumonia through dampening of systemic inflammation...
  4. doi Addition of vitamin D status to prognostic scores improves the prediction of outcome in community-acquired pneumonia
    Hilde H F Remmelts
    Department of Internal Medicine, St Antonius Hospital, Nieuwegein, The Netherlands
    Clin Infect Dis 55:1488-94. 2012
    ..Vitamin D deficiency is common worldwide. The prognostic value of vitamin D levels in pneumonia is unknown. In this study, we aimed to investigate the impact of vitamin D status on outcome in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP)...
