Sepsis is a life-threatening syndrome that arises when a dysbalanced patient response to an infection causes damage to the body’s own tissue and organs. Due to its extensive worldwide incidence and life-threatening character, sepsis is a leading topic in research. Unfortunately though, many clinical trials targeting specific pathways in the sepsis response have failed to produce a treatment solution for sepsis. The aim of Lonneke van Vught’s research is to provide more insight into the epidemiology, outcome and host response in specific subgroups of sepsis patients admitted to the ICU.
