The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of terlipressin for treating septic shock.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Multicenter,Prospective,Randomized,Controlled,Double Blind Study in China to Evaluate the Effect of Terlipressin in Patients With Septic Shock

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: 28-day Mortality

Secondary outcome:

SOFA score

days alive and free of vasopressor

90-day mortality

Detailed description: Septic shock is the most common cause of death in intensive care units and has a mortality rate of 40 to 60%.Vasopressin is commonly used as an adjunct to catecholamines to support blood pressure in refractory septic shock. Recently small sample clinical study suggest that Terlipressin,a vasopressin analogues, was effective in reversing sepsis-induced arterial hypotension and in reducing norepinephrine requirements. But its effect on mortality is unknown. Invesgators hypothesized that Terlipressin as compared with norepinephrine would decrease mortality among patients with septic shock.
