Heme from red blood cells released in septic shock worsens organ dysfunction and increases the risk of death, but can be overcome by a scavenger of free heme. Casting Heme in a New Light Sepsis, or severe systemic infection, is a deadly disease that has always been difficult to treat. Despite modern-day antibiotics and intensive care management, patients with sepsis still have a high rate of major complications and death. These severe consequences are thought to be a result of simultaneous… Expand
