Dermacortic steroids

Dermacortic steroids are medical drugs used by the United Nations Space Command. They accelerate tissue regrowth following catastrophic injuries where the body has experienced severe burns or trauma.[1] The last stage of dermacortic steroid treatment is known to be overly stimulating and unpleasant, even to a Spartan-II. As a result, most individuals undergoing dermacortic steroid treatment are sedated.[2]

Spartan-II Kelly-087 needed dermacortic steroids following her injury by a Mgalekgolo's assault cannon in the caves beneath Menachite Mountain on Reach in 2552.[1]
