A new study has suggested that Sepsis is now a bigger killer than cancer, with more than double the number of deaths worldwide than previously estimated. 

The new study, published in The Lancet, also suggested that half of all cases occurred in children and adolescents, particularly in low or low-middle income countries.

Ivan was joined by Professor Steve Kerrigan, Associate Professor in Pharmacology at RCSI and Orlaith Staunton, who established the Rory Staunton Foundation for Sepsis Prevention following the death of her 12-year-old son, Rory.
