    Looks promising, at least for those with leaky gut. I don´t know if you would want to do this with a pathogenic bacteria though, I guess it would depend on how virulent it was.

    LPS is a super antigen. It can drive someone with a LPS based bacterial infection into septic shock. Blocking LPS will not stop the immune system from fighting a bacterial infection. It will just slow down the severity and speed of the immune response. In anyone with a severe immune response this would be a good thing.

    I would like to see human clinical trials if the research keeps showing results.

    I was referring to its potential use in ME, rather than in sepsis.

    KDM has talked about the potential efficacy of such a approach in Lyme.
