Researchers find that anti-HIV drugs may prevent complications from bacterial sepsis

Bacterial infections can lead to the formation of abscesses—pockets of dead cells and debris surrounded by inflammatory immune cells. Bacteria multiply within abscesses, causing more inflammation and further damage to surrounding tissues. In severe cases, these immune reactions spread across the body, resulting in life-threatening organ failure, or sepsis. But how these abscesses form and what can be done to prevent them was previously not well understood.
