Gerlach German Sepsis Society (DSG) http://www.sepsis-gesellschaft.de 123 S2 Abstracts Dear colleagues, During the last two decades, multiple treatment modalities have been tested in the attempt to improve clinical outcomes from sepsis. During this period we have consistently observed initially promising results that have gradually faded in subsequent large clinical trials. Researchers blame this irreproducibility on slow patient accrual (selection bias), the Hawthorn effect (knowing you are being watched changes your practice), beta-type errors (false positive), publi- cation bias and other factors. In a recent publication (Mebazaa et al. Journal of Intensive Care (2016) 4:24) the authors stated, that the major reasons for lack of survival in recent sepsis trials are over-estimated treatment effects, suboptimal pre-clinical models, incorrect treatment targets, and heterogeneity of definitions and patients. Priorities for future sepsis clinical trials are among others, identi- fication of responders to treatment, networks of sepsis investigators experienced in clinical trial conduct, application of the recent S-3 definitions for sepsis http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Infection Springer Journals
