A Global Health Priority
Sepsis, also known as blood poisoning, affects almost 50 million people every year and leads to 11 million deaths. Because there is currently no cure, it was declared a health priority by the World Health Organization.
Infection: Sepsis is a life-threatening misguided immune response to an infection with bacteria or viruses.
Burden for Healthcare Systems
Without curative treatments available, sepsis patients are kept on the intensive care units for very long time. In the United States alone, direct Sepsis costs are USD 24 billion. Being already the single most expensive condition treated in hospitals, costs are rising every year.
