Quiet Killer

Kills more people than breast cancer, prostate cancer, and HIV/AIDS combined.

Rapid Mortality

Mortality increases 7% per hour of delayed recognition – making rapid diagnosis crucial.

Costly Burden

Costs over $20B annually in healthcare costs in the U.S. - a figure that could be dramatically reduced by consistent early detection.

Sepsis — A Disease of Host Response

In sepsis, controlled host immune response mechanisms become dysregulated, leading to collateral damage to blood vessels and major organs, such as the kidneys. This dysregulation manifests as structural shifts in white blood cells, which we can detect at the single cell level before organ dysfunction sets in, allowing for early diagnosis and intervention.

Normal Infection

Controlled, effective immune response at the site of an infection

With Sepsis

Uncontrolled amplification of the immune response throughout the body
