Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) and peritonitis are the most common causes of sepsis, which is a clinical syndrome that arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. In severe infection and sepsis systemic inflammation invariably leads to activation of the coagulation system and inhibition of anticoagulant mechanisms and fibrinolysis. The aim of Marcel Schouten’s PhD thesis is to further elucidate the crosstalk between coagulation and inflammation in severe infectious disease, with a special focus on the endogenous protein C system (PC).
