Management of sepsis
A better understanding of the inflammatory, procoagulant and immunosuppressive aspects of sepsis has resulted in the development of rational therapeutic plans. A rapid diagnosis and expeditious treatment along with multiple approaches are necessary in the treatment of sepsis and the selection of patients for each given therapy is very important, as the efficacy of treatment differs, depending on patients.

Collection of genomic DNA by buccal swabs for polymerase chain reaction-based biomarker assays
Buccal swabs have proven to be a low cost, reliable means of DNA collection. Sampling and processing considerations may affect optimal results, but storage time of up to 3 years appears to have no effect when this method is used.
