Newer cardiovascular adjuncts in septic shock include vasopressin and low-dose steroids. 15 Low-dose vasopressin infusions increase MAP, systemic vascular resistance, and urine output in patients responding poorly to catecholamines. There are a number of possible mechanisms of action: • Plasma concentrations of vasopressin are relatively low. Vasopressin receptors in the vasculature are often available for binding to exogenous hormone.

However, there is, to date, no definitive evidence for an effect from any single polymorphism, especially TNFα polymorphisms, in sepsis. Furthermore, we cannot extrapolate the in vitro effect of polymorphisms to in vivo and we do not yet understand the pathophysiology of sepsis sufficiently to allow targeted interventions based on natural human genetic variation. The Future Larger, better-designed studies are being conducted (for example, the UK GAINS study and the European GENOSEPT study), which will give results that are more definitive.
