  • NEW YORK (AP) — A third person with Legionnaires’ disease has died as New York City investigators search for the source of an outbreak that has sickened dozens.

    A spokesman for Mayor Bill de Blasio says 11 more people have been hospitalized in the South Bronx since Thursday.

    On Friday, investigators found legionella bacteria at the Opera House Hotel in the Bronx. Previously the bacteria had been found in equipment at a local hospital and a complex that contains a movie theater.
    De Blasio spokesman Peter Kadushin says the third person killed was a middle-age man with prior health conditions. The man had been hospitalized.

    Legionnaires’ disease is caused when water tainted with a certain bacteria is inhaled into the lungs. There have been 2,400 cases nationwide this year and more than 130 in New York.

  • The world’s most neglected medical emergency
    • Number one cause of death from infection. Affects all ages, all nations.
    • More common than a heart attack, kills more people than any cancer.
    • Affects more than 30 million people a year worldwide, many of whom die
    or suffer permanent disabilities. Its incidence is increasing.
    • Costs many countries more than any illness and is the leading cause of
    years of lives lost.
    • Is caused by any infection and if recognized and treated too late produces
    the catastrophic failure of multiple organ systems which frequently
    results in death or permanent disability.
    • Better education of health care workers and lay people on prevention
    and the early symptoms of sepsis.
    • Access to simple, low-cost and effective diagnostic and treatment
    interventions that are the pillars of any basic health care system.
    • E.g. antibiotics, fluids, oxygen and other basic supportive care.
    This will save lives,
    reduce disabilities
    and result in large savings for health care budgets.
    Organizations and individuals around the world should ask their
    governments to support the following:
    The World Health Organization (WHO) through the World Health Assembly
    should designate a World Sepsis Day to focus global attention and action that
    will strengthen health care systems worldwide to address this, the world’s
    most neglected medical emergency.

    New link on Cytosorbents Facebook

    This review outlines the use of extracorporeal therapies in the treatment of sepsis and septic AKI, considering the classic aspects of extracorporeal renal replacement therapy including indications, timing, and delivered dose but also discussing the various techniques that are currently used to achieve immune homeostasis. The authors further discuss the evidence accumulated to date and suggest possibilities for the future treatment of this entity of patients. In this context, the CytoSorb therapy is mentioned as one of the most promising approaches, due to its improved biocompatibility and therefore the opportunity for whole blood hemoperfusion, its efficiency in removing multiple inflammatory mediators shown in animals studies as well as in case reports and due to its beneficial effects on chemokine gradients, which may restore chemokine gradients towards infected tissue and away from healthy organs through leukocyte trafficking control.

    Any update ??

  • In addition to numerous prospective study projects CytoSorbents also has marketing experience in the context of larger case series from the indications of septic shock, cardiac surgery, lung transplantation, liver failure and others.
    Upon completion of the retrospective analysis, we expect mid-2015 several publications.
    The number of published reports on individual treatments is steadily growing and already covers a wide area of CytoSorb-applications. A selection of published and unpublished case reports can be found here:

    • CytoSorb: an extracorporeal blood purification therapy designed to reduce excessive levels of inflammatory mediators such as cytokines, or “cytokine storm”, from blood. In doing so, the goal is to reduce the potentially deadly systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) seen in life-threatening inflammatory conditions. CytoSorb columns fit onto all CRRT machines in ANZ

    Another application is in cancer immunotherapy. CytoSorb® was specifically designed to treat "cytokine release syndrome (CRS)" or cytokine storm. We believe that it can be used as a rescue therapy, when patients develop uncontrolled CRS in activated T-cell or CAR T-cell cancer immunotherapy. Cancer cachexia is another potential opportunity. Cancer cachexia is a wasting condition that occurs in most cancers that leads to rapid uncontrolled weight loss, anorexia, and physical debilitation. Patients lose the physical reserve needed to tolerate treatment and fight the cancer. Because CytoSorb® can remove a broad range of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators that drive cancer cachexia, it may be very helpful in this condition. CytoSorbents is exploring this application, as well as the use of CytoSorb® as a primary cancer immunotherapy to kickstart the immune system to attack cancer, with researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.

    What is sepsis and why is it so dangerous?
    Sepsis a severe health problem sparked by your body’s reaction to infection. When you get an infection, your body fights back, releasing chemicals into the bloodstream to kill the harmful bacteria or viruses. When this process works the way it is supposed to, your body takes care of the infection and you get better. With sepsis, the chemicals from your body’s own defenses trigger inflammatory responses, which can impair blood flow to organs, like the brain, heart or kidneys. This in turn can lead to organ failure and tissue damage.
