Septic shock: From the bug to organ failure

Infection and Severe Sepsis are still important causes of death in ICU worldwide despite all the research of the last decades. Apart from early diagnosis, optimal organ support and early adequate antibiotics, no single adjunctive therapy has been shown to be safe and effective. Looking at the interaction of the pathogen, the host and the treatment could lead to a better understanding of the underlying processes and ideally to a more personalised medicine.
