  1. Understanding the relationship of timeliness of therapy
  2. The clinical efficacy in the treatment of acute conditions. 


The use of Intravenous Vitamin C in critical illness states such as septic shock have become controversial largely due to the discordant results between some randomized and observations controlled trials and others designed as double-blind, multi-center randomized controlled trials. In this lecture, Dr. Kory will review the history and rationale of intravenous vitamin C in critical illness states, and present his original research regarding the relationship of timeliness of therapy and efficacy in septic shock which he will argue provides the definitive explanations that both explain and resolve the differing conclusions of its efficacy amongst the myriad research trials from around the world over the past 5 years.
