Dermacortic steroids

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Dermacortic steroids are medical drugs used by the United Nations Space Command.[1]



Dermacortic steroids 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 was treated with dermacortic steroids following burns incurred by a Mgalekgolo's assault cannon on Reach in 2552.[1]
