The Challenge of Sepsis

Sepsis, the body’s severe response to a bloodstream infection, is a leading cause of death. Over 270,000 Americans and 11 million individuals worldwide die from sepsis each year.  These infections progress quickly, but once the causative pathogen is identified, aggressive treatment with the appropriate antimicrobial can save lives. 

Current diagnostic techniques to identify the infection rely on blood cultures, which takes days to provide a result. During the critical first few hours and days of illness, healthcare professionals are forced to treat patients based on their best guess. This leads to poor patient outcomes and reduces the effectiveness of existing drugs by driving antimicrobial resistance among pathogens.
