INTRODUCTION Neuropeptides arginine-vasopressin (AVP), apelin (APL), and stromal-derived factor-1α (SDF-1α) are involved in the dysfunction of the corticotropic axis observed in septic ICU patients. Study aims were: (i) to portray a distinctive stress-related neuro-corticotropic systemic profile of early sepsis, (ii) to propose a combination data score, for(More)
Primary human and primate brain microvascular endothelial cells were tested for permissiveness to coronaviruses JHM and 229E. While sub-genomic viral RNAs could be detected up to 72 hours post-infection, primate cells were abortively infected and neither virus caused cytopathology. Human cells were non-permissive for JHM but permissive for 229E replication;(More)
Along with redistributive shock, myocardial dysfunction is now recognized as highly prevalent in early severe sepsis. Indeed, aside from their distinct loading potency, resuscitation fluids have been poorly investigated as to their specific molecular impact on myocardial dysfunction. The objective of this study was to evaluate the load-independent(More)
