The clinical complexity and heterogeneity following infection and sepsis is a well-recognized challenge to effective patient management. Traditional pathogen-only targeted treatment currently remains the standard of care in diagnosis and treatment. Precision medicine, a concept that has been around for many years, applies host-directed diagnostics and therapeutics to use a person’s own genes or proteins as a potential way to yield more precise diagnoses, predict disease risk before symptoms occur, and design customized treatment plans that maximize safety and efficiency. For the medical community, precision medicine holds a lot of promise and hope for improved, personalized care and outcomes in infectious diseases and sepsis. This Sepsis Alliance Symposium, focused on precision medicine in sepsis care and examining host-directed diagnosis and treatment for infectious diseases and sepsis, will allow learners to better understand the host response and how precision medicine might be applied. Presenters will also review host-based diagnostics across the continuum and explore the role of data and machine learning in host-based diagnostics and therapeutics.
