Sepsis is a medical condition in which the immune system goes into overdrive due to an infection spreading uncontrollably via the bloodstream. It is one of the most fatal but least recognized killers.

Sepsis results in an overwhelming immune response to the infection:
  • blood clots
  • leaky vessels
  • impaired blood flow
  • damage to the organs
  • death

  • Each year in the United States alone, more than one million people are diagnosed with sepsis.
    Around eight million people die from sepsis globally each year, causing sepsis to be the leading cause of hospital deaths.

Sepsis is a life-threatening problem


HIV/AIDS is an autoimmune deficiency syndrome affecting over 35 million people worldwide, and is therefore one of the world’s deadliest infections. It weakens the immune system by terminating excessive CD4 (T+) cells which are essential in fighting off infection.

HIV/AIDS is a very deadly disease


The current solution for pathogenic diseases is antibacterial medication.

Antibiotic Medication:
  • is ineffective due to an inability to quickly identify the infectious agent and carry out subsequent treatment
  • does not completely destroy bacteria, resulting in floating bacterial debris in the bloodstream
  • results in an increase in antibiotic resistance
  • is less effective at treating sepsis due to antibiotic resistance stemming from other diseases

Antibiotic resistance is rapidly increasing
