What is it about?
This study highlights the importance of Extracorporeal Cytokine Adsorption Therapy (CytoSorb®) in the management of patients with septic shock. We were able to observe 66% of shock reversal when CytoSorb® was used as an adjuvant therapy in addition to standard of care. This paper highlights that CytoSorb® therapy when used early (within less than 24 hours of septic shock) leads to better hemodynamic parameters further leading to better clinical outcome.

Why is it important?
In this present 20th generation, the antibiotics portfolio stands stagnated. CytoSorb® Therapy opens up a new opportunity to regain control in the critically ill patients by addressing the hyperinflammatory condition. In our study, we were able to showcase regaining control in critically ill patients. Further, shock reversal was observed in patients when CytoSorb® Therapy was used early.
