NEJM Notable Articles of 2020

New England Journal of Medicine's Notable Articles of 2020

As 2020 comes to a close and we look back at the most notable NEJM articles, three Covid-19 trials are striking. The first, published online at the end of January, reported on transmission dynamics in Wuhan and demonstrated, even at the very earliest time points, human-to-human transmission. Another, the RECOVERY trial, reported on dexamethasone in hospitalized patients with Covid-19. From RECOVERY, we learned that there is a clear benefit to treatment with dexamethasone and that it can decrease the death rate among this very ill population. The last, published in December, reports on an mRNA vaccine that appears to give us a pathway out of what has been a global disaster.

Other NEJM articles also emerged as practice changing. This collection includes studies of breast cancer and prostate cancer, heart failure and atrial fibrillation. All thirteen studies in this collection impacted the practice of medicine.
