OBJECTIVES Uncontrolled macrophage activation with hemophagocytosis is a distinctive feature of hemophagocytic syndromes (HPS). We examined whether lympho-histiocytic infiltration of the bone marrow and liver, as well as hemo-/erythrophagocytosis also occurs during sepsis and whether this process could account for the increased production of(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have provided evidence for the importance of platelet-derived nitric oxide (NO) for the regulation of hemostasis. Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) is an essential cofactor and regulator of NO synthase activity in the vasculature; however, it is as yet unknown whether platelets dispose over a functional BH4 synthesis. METHODS AND(More)
BACKGROUND Activated protein C (APC) has been introduced as a therapeutic agent for treatment of patients with severe sepsis due to its unique anticoagulant and anti-inflammatory properties in the vascular system. In this study we investigated novel targets for the anti-inflammatory action of APC in human macrophages. METHODS Using a genome-wide approach,(More)
The CD163 scavenger receptor pathway for Hb:Hp complexes is an essential mechanism of protection against the toxicity of extracellular hemoglobin (Hb), which can accumulate in the vasculature and within tissues during hemolysis. Chloroquine is a lysosomotropic agent, which has been extensively used as an antimalarial drug in the past, before parasite(More)
Microvascular leakage due to endothelial barrier dysfunction is a prominent feature of T helper 2 (Th2) cytokine mediated allergic inflammation. Interleukin-4 (IL-4) is a potent Th2 cytokine, known to impair the barrier function of endothelial cells. However, the effectors mediating IL-4 induced cytoskeleton remodeling and consequent endothelial barrier(More)
