Researchers Identify Hormone for Treating Sepsis

Biomedical scientists at the University of California, Riverside have identified a hormone that may lead to improved survival rates for patients with sepsis. Using a mouse model, they have discovered that the human protein resistin could be used to treat this medical emergency. The researchers found that mice expressing human resistin had a 100 percent survival rate from a sepsis-like infection when compared to wild-type mice with the same infection.
