  1. 1. Severe sepsis : epidemiology and sex-related differences in inflammatory markers

    Author : Sofie Jacobson; Ola Winsö; Stefan Söderberg; Peter Larsson; Else Tönnesen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Severe sepsis; Leptin; Adiponectin; Mannose-binding lectin; Sex; Anaesthesiology; anestesiologi;

    Abstract : Background.  Sepsis is a syndrome associated with high mortality rates, substantial morbidity and high costs of care. The incidents of sepsis is reported to be high and controversy exists whether gender affect severity or outcome. READ MORE

  2. 2. Adhesive and signaling mechanisms in abdominal sepsis

    Author : Su Zhang; Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; abdominal sepsis; lung; infection; neutrophil; chemokines; T-cells; HMG-CoA reductase; NFAT;

    Abstract : Sepsis is a major cause of mortality in intensive care units despite decades of scientific efforts. The lung is recognized as the most sensitive and critical organ affected by the hyper-inflammatory response in septic patients. Immune cell dysfunction develops in later phases of sepsis making patients susceptible to infections. READ MORE

  3. 3. Rac1 signaling regulates platelet-dependent inflammation abdominal sepsis

    Author : Rundk Hwaiz; Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; abdominal sepsis; Rac1; platelet; neutrophil; chemokine; inflammation;

    Abstract : Sepsis is a systemic inflammatory response syndrome to a localized or systemic infection that leads to the over production of proinflammatory cytokines and the ultimate failure of multiple organ systems. However, little is known about the potential role of Rac1 in controlling sepsis-induced intracellular signaling pathways. READ MORE

  4. 4. Platelet-dependent pulmonary recruitment of neutrophils in abdominal sepsis

    Author : Milladur Rahman; Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; abdominal sepsis; neutrophil recruitment; platelet; lung injury;

    Abstract : Sepsis and subsequent multiple organ failure remain the major cause of mortality in intensive care units. Leukocyte-mediated tissue damage is a key feature in septic lung injury. Accumulating data suggest that platelets play a role in inflammation and tissue injury. READ MORE

  5. 5. The effect of mechanical ventilation on abdominal organs : Analysing the role of PEEP and perfusion

    Author : Silvia Marchesi; Miklós Lipcsey; Anders Larsson; Göran Hedenstierna; Torbjörn Karlsson; Anders Oldner; Ragnvi Hagman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ARDS; sepsis; abdominal inflammation; edema; perfusion; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care;

    Abstract : Background: The effect of mechanical ventilation on abdominal organs is not well understood and investigated yet. Previous studies, using an animal sepsis-like model, found an association between mechanical ventilation (MV) and abdominal edema and inflammation. READ MORE
