Live Webinar: Precision Medicine for Sepsis: Targeted Therapy Based on Molecular Endotyping

September 30, 2021

Webinar Description: 

Sponsored by Spectral Medical

Although overall mortality rates for sepsis are decreasing, some forms of sepsis—particularly severe sepsis that is sudden in onset—continue to claim many lives. Some of these aggressive forms of sepsis have been tied to molecular mechanisms that can offer new treatment targets. This webinar will focus on current methods used to identify sepsis subtypes and explore targeted therapies for such patients

Target Audience

Nurses, physicians, pharmacists, emergency responders, healthcare management teams, and other healthcare staff may benefit.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the webinar, the attendee should be able to: 

  • Explain why sepsis is a heterogenous syndrome;
  • Define sepsis endotypes and explain why they are critical in achieving progress in sepsis therapy;
  • Discuss the role of damage and pathogen-associated molecular patterns in pathogenesis of sepsis and in developing treatments.
