Response to: A randomized-controlled trial comparing 20% albumin to plasmalyte in patients with cirrhosis and sepsis-induced hypotension [ALPS trial]

      Sepsis and septic shock in patients with cirrhosis is a leading cause of acute decompensation or acute-on-chronic liver failure and is associated with poor prognosis and increased mortality.
