The paper is published in advance, online in Critical Care Medicine. (2013-11-14)

Quicker detection and treatment of severe sepsis
Sepsis is the name of an infection that causes a series of reactions in the body, which in the worst case can prove fatal. The problem for both patients and doctors is that the early symptoms are difficult to distinguish from less dangerous infections such as a severe flu or winter vomiting disease. A researcher at Lund University in Sweden has now discovered a substance in the blood which shows both whether a patient has sepsis and how serious the case is. (2011-05-23)

Sepsis could be underestimated in new-born babies
UK authors of a research letter in this week's issue of The Lancet suggest that the incidence of disease caused by group B streptococcal infection in babies is underestimated because the 'gold standard' methods for bacterial detection may result in falsely negative results. (2003-06-05)

Patients with history of cancer at increased risk for acquiring and dying from sepsis
Hospitalized patients with a history of cancer are at a ten-fold increased risk of acquiring and subsequently dying from sepsis-- a severe immune response to an infection--compared to hospitalized patients without cancer. In addition, the risk for sepsis among male patients was found to be 30 percent greater than for female patients, while African Americans and other races had nearly twice the risk for sepsis of Caucasian patients. (2006-06-13)

FASEB Journal: Anesthetic drug sevoflurane improves sepsis outcomes, animal study reveals
Patients with sepsis often require surgery or imaging procedures under general anesthesia, yet there is no standard regimen for anesthetizing septic patients. Of volatile (inhaled) anesthetics, sevoflurane and isoflurane are the most commonly used drugs, despite their undetermined mechanisms of action. A novel study in The FASEB Journal suggests that the type of drug used in general anesthesia could be critical to the survival of patients with sepsis. (2019-09-12)

Doctors to treat septic patients with hypothermia
Mild hypothermia can reduce the effects of sepsis on oxygen transport around the body and may be a valuable tool in the treatment of human sepsis patients.

The research is presented on Thursday, July 1, at the Society for Experimental Biology Annual Meeting in Prague. (2010-06-30)

Sepsis a leading cause of death in US hospitals but many deaths may not be preventable

These findings may spur development of novel sepsis treatments. (2016-04-08)
