Leptin joins the fight in the battle against Sepsis

Image
Sepsis is a highly dangerous - very often lethal - inflammatory condition caused by the body's response to microbes in the blood, lungs, or other areas. Even with ICU treatment involving antibiotics & fluids in large doses, 20-35% of patients suffering from severe sepsis die inside 30 days. 40-60% of patients in septic shock expire in that period as well, with those who make it out of the first month still succumbing inside a 6 month window.
Hoping that this breakthrough can help turn those numbers around!
