Scientists at the Wyss Institute at Cambridge, Mass.-based Harvard University and Boston Children's Hospital are developing a model for clinical monitoring designed to measure sepsis responses in pigs.
"Our system goes beyond simply measuring the effects of pathogen injection on inflammation and animal survival," said Mike Super, PhD, co-author and lead senior staff scientist at the Wyss Institute. "Because it mimics the life-threatening organ failure that is also seen in sepsis patients, it also might provide a better prediction of how sepsis therapies will perform in humans."
