Brief Summary:
ULIS-1 is an open-label pilot study concerning utility of molar sodium lactate in fluid balance in septic shock patients

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Septic Shock Drug: Sodium Lactate light dose Drug: Sodium Lactate high dose Drug: Normal saline Phase 2 Phase 3

Detailed Description:

ULIS-1 consists in three arms of treatment during the first 24hrs of septic shock treatment.

  • normal saline
  • sodium lactate 2.5ml/kg in 60min then
  • either 0.25 or 0.5ml/kg/h during 24hrs Main criteria is fluid balance at 48hrs
