  Purpose

This study will be performed to determine whether selenium replacement reduces 28-day mortality of severe sepsis and septic shock patients, and to investigate whether selenium replacement contributes differently to the mortality reduction of the patients according to their initial serum selenium level.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 28-day mortality [ Time Frame: 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    All cause mortality occurs within 28 days.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • ICU length of stay [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After 3 months from enrollment, the participant's ICU length of stay will be evaluated.

  • Mortality at hospital discharge [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After 3 months from enrollment, the participant's in hospital mortality will be evaluated.

  • Development of the new infection [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After 3 months from enrollment, the development of new infection of the participant during the hospitalization will be evaluated.

  • Serum selenium level [ Time Frame: At 0, 24, 72, 168 hours post-enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After study completion, serum selenium level will be measured from stored samples. Then, we will investigate whether selenium replacement contributes differently to the mortality reduction of the enrolled patients according to their initial serum selenium level.

  • Ventilator days [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After 3 months from enrollment, total numbers of ventilator days of the participant during the hospitalization will be evaluated.

  • Renal replacement therapy days [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After 3 months from enrollment, the days of renal replacement therapy of the participant during the hospitalization will be evaluated.

  • Oxidative stress marker [ Time Frame: At 0, 24, 72, 168 hours post-enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After study completion, serum glutathione peroxidase, reduced glutathione, NADPH, and MDA will be measured from stored samples.

  • Changes in severity scores [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    APACHE II score, SOFA score, and SAPS II will be calculated at 1, 3, 7 days

  • 3-month mortality [ Time Frame: 3 months post-enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Inflammatory markers [ Time Frame: At 0, 24, 72, 268 hours post-enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After study completion, serum cytokines, CRP, and chemokines will be measured from stored samples.

  • Vasopressor days [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Days of dopamine, norepinephrine, dobutamine, vasopressin, and epinephrine will be investigated

Other Name: Selenase T pro injectione
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo 10 mL (delivered from biosyn) for 7 days

Detailed Description:

This study is a single center, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trial.

After the diagnosis of severe sepsis and septic shock, enrolled patients will be randomized. Then, selenium or placebo will be intravenously administered to them for 7 days. Hemodynamic and laboratory data will be recorded for 7 days and additional serum samples will be obtained at 0, 24, 72, and 168 hours post-treatment and stored. Mortality will be observed for 28 days.

An interim analysis will be conducted by the independent data safety monitoring board.

Serum selenium levels will be measured from the stored serum samples after the study completion.
