    Deformylase improved sepsis survival in their animal model by 28 percent and prevented separation of the tightly knit human endothelial cells that keep blood vessel content contained.

    They found that a routine flushing of the area significantly reduced levels of N-formyl peptides. They hypothesized then and are now studying whether more frequent flushing can help those patients keep levels low and reduce their risk of SIRS and sepsis.
