Symphony IL-6 is a device that quantitates human IL-6 by fluorescence enzyme immunoassay (FEIA) from whole-blood specimens. Use of Symphony IL- 6 removes the need for plasma separation before testing. Symphony IL-6 comprises two components, the Symphony Fluorescence Immunoanalyzer and the Symphony IL-6 Cartridge. Whole blood is added to the cartridge and then up to six cartridges can be inserted into the immunoanalyzer. After 20 minutes a readout and printout are given with a quantitative IL-6 concentration. The used cartridges are fully enclosed and can be easily disposed of in general hospital bio-waste. Given the nature of this device and its portability, there is potential for future deployment as a point-of-care (POC) device. This study is to validate an interleukin-6 (IL-6) cutoff value using the Symphony IL-6 test for patients at high risk of severe sepsis caused by a COVID-19 infection

The objective of this study is to establish a reference range for Symphony IL-6 in a cohort of apparently healthy individuals.
This study evaluates the impact of aminoglycosides in hypotensive septic oncologic patients. In the oncologic patient population, sepsis is a major health concern due to high mortality rates and healthcare costs. Prior research shows aminoglycosides antibiotics are frequently used to treat sepsis, but their clinical impact in hypotensive oncology patients upon the progression of sepsis is not known.
Low-level interventional clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of extracorporeal support with hemoperfusion in critical patients with multiorgan dysfunction syndrome by septic origin.
The implementation of this project will improve the effectiveness of surgical treatment and reduce the level of complications and mortality among patients with heart failure and heart failure in the terminal stage. The goal of the study. Improvement of organ-substituting technologies in the treatment of heart and respiratory failure. Objectives of the study. Objective 1. To study the restoration of organ function during implantation of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), as an organ replacement, in cardiac and / or respiratory failure. Objective 2. To study the results of applying organ-substituting technologies in the treatment of sepsis.
Severe infections (sepsis) are a frequent cause of admission to the intensive care unit. Sepsis represent a significant risk for the health of patients in the short and medium term. Sepsis are notably linked to a change in the function of immune cells. In some patients, a state of pseudo-dormancy of monocyte and macrophage immune cells, called myeloid cell immunosuppression, is observed. This situation, which leads to a worsening of the infection, must be avoided because it represents a danger for the patient, even during antibiotic therapy. At present, these events are still very poorly understood. Research is needed to understand how the immunosuppression of myeloid cells occurs in order to adapt existing treatments or to find new ones. Laboratory work on animal models of sepsis has shown that this state of myeloid cell immunosuppression is closely linked to a modification of energy production by myeloid cells (monocytes and macrophages). The function of the mitochondria ("energy factory" of the cells) in these cells is impaired. Thus, restoring mitochondrial function in myeloid cells could be a therapeutic solution against the immunosuppression of myeloid cells during severe sepsis. The aim of this study is to verify whether alterations in mitochondrial function in myeloid cells occur in both patients with and without bacterial infection.
Sepsis is a common and critical complication in HIV-infected patients and an important marker of high risk of patient death. The widely used diagnostic criteria for sepsis still have many deficiencies and do not allow for good prediction and timely determination of the onset of sepsis. In HIV-infected patients, abnormal activation of monocyte-macrophage is also a key mechanism in the development of their sepsis. Monocyte distribution width (MDW) is a marker of the degree of peripheral blood monocyte activation and has been recommended abroad for the early diagnosis of adult sepsis patients in emergency departments. However, in China, MDW has not been applied to the clinic yet, and the related studies are almost blank. Therefore, it is worthwhile to analyze the monocyte activation status of HIV-infected patients by MDW assay and thus predict the occurrence of sepsis.
The study will assess the safety of low doses of epirubicin in sepsis patients. Therefore the study will look for side effects in patients treated with low dose epirubicin compared to control patients. In animals, low dose epirubicin has been shown to induce tolerance to infection and increase survival in septic mice. The study will also look for positive effects on organ function in humans. The investigators hypothesize that low-dose epirubicin can be used therapeutically to improve the disease course and lessen mortality of patients with sepsis. In a first step, the investigators aim at proving that low-dose epirubicin can safely be administered to sepsis patients and will perform a dose-escalation multi-center trial.
The prolonged β-lactam Antibiotics intravenous infusion strategy has emerged as the standard treatment for sepsis despite its unknown efficacy. The investigators will conduct a prospective, multi-center, cluster randomized controlled clinical trial. The investigators aimed to compare the clinical efficacy and prognosis of prolonged β-lactam antibiotics intravenous infusion versus short-term intravenous infusion in ICU patients with early sepsis. The investigators expect to recruit 40 branch centers and enroll at least 2600 patients with sepsis.
