Anticoagulant therapy for patients with sepsis is not recommended in the latest Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines, and non-anticoagulant therapy is the global standard treatment approach at present. We aimed at elucidating the effect of non-anticoagulant therapy on patients with sepsis-induced disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), as evidence on this topic has remained inconclusive.

The benefits and harm caused by anticoagulant treatments for sepsis induced disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) remain unclear. Therefore, we performed a network meta-analysis to assess the e...
Intravesical Bacillus Camlette-Guérin (BCG) is the treatment of choice for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, and has been used successfully for over 40 years. A rare and potentially fatal complicat...
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is caused by antibodies targeting platelet factor 4 (PF4)/heparin complexes. The immune response leading to HIT remains perplexing with many paradoxes. Unlike ot...
Platelet activation plays an important role in the development of sepsis. During sepsis, platelet activation leads to endothelial cell injury and promotes neutrophil extracellular trap and microthromb...
Sepsis involves dysfunctional glucose metabolism. Among patients with sepsis, hyperglycemia is frequent and insulin administration has been evaluated for glycemic control to improve patient outcomes. ...
To evaluate the safety and activity of ART-123 in reducing death in subjects with sepsis and disseminated intravascular coagulation.
The purpose of this study is to see if ART-123 (recombinant human soluble thrombomodulin) decreases the number of people who die as a result of Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC)...
The objective is to assess the efficacy and safety of oral rosuvastatin in patients with sepsis-induced Acute Lung Injury (ALI). The hypothesis of this study is that Rosuvastatin therapy w...
The purpose of this study is to assess the relationship between midkine level and ACE-Ang II induced endothelial injury in sepsis.
The primary objective of the study is to explore the efficacy and safety of ATryn® (antithrombin alfa) for the treatment of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) associated with se...
The presence of fungi circulating in the blood. Opportunistic fungal sepsis is seen most often in immunosuppressed patients with severe neutropenia or in postoperative patients with intravenous catheters and usually follows prolonged antibiotic therapy.
Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.
An enzyme fraction from the venom of the Malayan pit viper, Agkistrodon rhodostoma. It catalyzes the hydrolysis of a number of amino acid esters and a limited proteolysis of fibrinogen. It is used clinically to produce controlled defibrination in patients requiring anticoagulant therapy. EC 3.4.21.-.
A serine proteinase inhibitor used therapeutically in the treatment of pancreatitis, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), and as a regional anticoagulant for hemodialysis. The drug inhibits the hydrolytic effects of thrombin, plasmin, and kallikrein, but not of chymotrypsin and aprotinin.

Sepsis, septicaemia and blood poisoning
Septicaemia (another name for blood poisoning) refers to a bacterial infection of the blood, whereas sepsis can also be caused by viral or fungal infections. Sepsis is not just limited to the blood and can affect the whole body, including the organ...
