I just read this locally about a Dr. Who has (possibly) found a cure for SEPSIS.
I had sepsis for a month, following my heart surgery. I had to remain in the hospital for 30 days, just to get the TWICE DAILY IV of ANTIBIOTICS.
Not a joke. My Right leg (at my hip) LOOKED LIKE A BAKED HAM due to the infection.
It saved my life.

This man should probably get a Nobel Prize in Medicine if it is proven successful

This is huge! In just the past year I've known of two family members in law that died from sepsis. One friend who had more than a brief encounter with the infection and nearly died.

Antibiotics aren't working the way they once did and as far as I know, no new ones are being worked on.

Vitamin C! Wow!

A critical care doctor at Eastern Virginia Medical School (http://www.evms.edu/about_evms/administrative_offices/marketing_communications/publications/issue_9_4/sepsis.php) believes he has found the cure for sepsis, a common infection that gets into the blood and kills 1,000 people a day in the U.S. alone.

Wow. I had no idea sepsis was that deadly.

How is this story not much bigger news?
