Sepsis is the "most frequent cause of death in hospitalised patients". This syndrome results mainly from infection in a patient and often leads to death. It is relatively unknown what the cause of the failure of the cells throughout the body is, that leads to the potential life threatening position a patient can find themselves in[1].
