Increasing antibiotic resistance\, emergence of new pathog ens\, together with changes in pathogen distribution due to altered climat e and mobility and the rise in the undertaking of invasive medical procedu res present global challenges. This threat is further enhanced by a drasti c lack of (new) effective drugs as well as by insufficient preventive and diagnostic possibilities. In particular\, vulnerability to sepsis is incre asing on a global scale and is now the third leading cause of death in the world. Sepsis refers to the life threatening condition in which the body fights a severe infection that has spread into the bloodstream\, often res ulting in organ failure. As well as constituting a life threatening condit ion\, sepsis is one of the most costly conditions regarding treatment\, in 2011 more than 20 billion dollars spent on fighting the disease in the US alone. Inconsistency in terms of recognition and assessment of symptoms c ontinues to constitute a serious barrier to addressing the disease. This s ession focuses on the threats posed by underestimated pathogens such as hu man pathogenic fungi and multiresistant bacteria as well as on strategies to effectively diagnose and efficiently treat sepsis in its early stages.\ nChair: Bernhard Hube\, HKI\nSpeakers:Dr. Vida HamiltonHealth Services Exe cutive | National Clinical Lead Sepsis | Ireland\nThe National Sepsis QI P rogramme of Ireland\nProf. Dr. Oliver KurzaiJulius Maximilians University of Wuerzburg | Medical Microbiology and Mycology | Professor and Chair | G ermany\nChallenges in Infection Control - Invasive Mycoses as a Case Study \nProf. Dr. Ulrich SchaibleResearch Center Borstel - Leibniz-Center for Me dicine and Biosciences | Head of Cellular Microbiology | Germany\nThe Glob al Challenge of Infections with Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria such as Tube rculosis\nDr. Markus WeigandGerman Sepsis Society | President | Germany\nF ulfilling the Goals of the Resolution of the World Health Assembly URL: DTSTART:20171015T000000 DTEND:20171017T235959 LOCATION:Kosmos\, Berlin END:VEVENT BEGIN:VTIMEZONE TZID:Europe/Berlin BEGIN:DAYLIGHT DTSTART:20171015T000000 TZNAME:CEST TZOFFSETTO:+0200 TZOFFSETFROM:+0200 END:DAYLIGHT END:VTIMEZONE END:VCALENDAR
