Low Dose Cyclophosphamide Improves Survival in a Murine Treatment Model of Sepsis. Sepsis is a complex medical condition characterized by a systemic inflammatory response in the setting of infection. We hypothesized that combining antibiotics plus an immunosuppressant would protect against the morbidity and mortality of polymicrobial sepsis in mice better than antibiotics alone. We used a murine cecal ligation and puncture model in which mice were treated either with imipenem plus cyclophosphamide or imipenem alone.
