Infection is a major concern in intestinal transplant recipients. Bacterial migration to extraintestinal sites is a central component of the gut hypothesis of sepsis. However, some studies have cited the beneficial effects of bacterial translocation (BT) on the host acquired immune system. We evaluated the role of previous BT on a subsequent BT challenge,(More)
Sepsis is the result from a complex bacterial-host interaction, which is an often-fatal response when host protective molecular mechanisms designed to fight invading bacteria surpass the beneficial intensity to the point of causing injury to the host. Increasing evidences have implicated the bacterial translocation (BT) as the main source for the induction(More)
