Prof. Didier Payen: "What clinicians should know about inflammation in sepsis"
Inflammation is the cornerstone of almost all life-threatening conditions motivating ICU admission. This lecture will try to give a picture of inflammatory response putting on scene the major actors of the play. Integrating their interactions, the sepsis will be used as an example to demonstrate the kinetic of inflammation and the potential to intervene with drugs to modulate the host response facing pathogens. The recent SARS-Cov-2 pandemic is a perfect example of the role of the host response to the virus as a key determinant of the clinical presentation, acquired specific immunity, and strategy for vaccine development.
