Yet clinical trials in “sepsis” patients are by nature beset with extreme selection bias problems. Identification of a statistically identifiable benefit hidden in a sea of patients who will get well without the intervention, and patients who will sicken and die with or without the intervention, poses formidable difficulties. Clearly, identifying the appropriate patient population for trials, as well as for each of the therapies we already possess, will be essential to improving care. A 2001 conference re-examined the definitions of sepsis, and proposed a model of categorizing response to infectious challenge modeled on the TNM staging system used by oncologists (54) and designated as the PIRO model.
These cells produce toxic proteins, peptides, and reactive oxygen species that not only kill pathogenic organisms but also can cause collateral damage to host cells. Activated neutrophils also are trapped in pulmonary capillary beds, as well as in post-capillary venules of other tissues. Damage to these tissues attracts additional immune cells, and the unregulated amplification of this process may lead to organ failure distant from the site of the original infection. The down-regulation of these activated neutrophils is believed to be related to neutrophil apoptosis (33).
