METHODS Encounter records were retrospectively reviewed for all patients presenting to our pediatric emergency department, a stand-alone pediatric department with 20,000 patient visits per year, located in an urban,(More)
Thermal trauma has a direct effect on mast cells, triggering the secretion of histamine. This secretion leads to an enhanced xanthine oxidase activity and an increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), the latter being produced after burns through differing mechanisms. As ROS have been shown to have deleterious effects on cellular membranes, a(More)
Superoxide dismutase (SOD), a free-radical scavenger, inhibits the increase of vascular permeability in experimental burn lesions in rats. In this study the aim was to determine whether Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), which has been implicated in the modulation of some inflammatory reactions, behaves in an analogous way. The study compares the haematocrit (Ht)(More)
This study was designed to examine the possible benefits that superoxide dismutase (SOD), a free radical scavenger, could induce upon some of the hematologic and urinary alterations occurring during the burn shock syndrome. The experiment was conducted by comparing two groups of rats treated with SOD and saline solution respectively, immediately after(More)
