Yesterday at noon conference, Dr. Cutrell (Infectious Disease Division), referred to several articles that have reexamined sepsis including its mechanisms and management. Check out the articles below that Dr. Cutrell referred to:

Article written by Dr. Suffredini and Dr. Munford (former UTSW resident and faculty) in JAMA from 2011 reviewing past therapies for sepsis and potential future projects:

Article written in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in the United States of America in 2013 that reevaluates the utility of murine models in understanding human diseases. Followed by a link from The New York Times that addresses this same topic:
