OBJECT Recent experimental work suggests that circulating endothelial progenitor cells (cEPCs) are recruited to the angiogenic vascular system of malignant gliomas. Consequently, the level of cEPCs has been proposed as a novel biomarker for the diagnosis and monitoring of these lesions. The aim of the present study was to examine the level of cEPCs and the(More)
Large quantitaties of inflammatory mediators are released during the course of endotoxaemia. These mediators in turn can stimulate the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) to release catecholamines, which ultimately regulate inflammation-associated impairment in tissue perfusion, myocardial impairment and vasodilatation. Treatment of sepsis is based on surgical(More)
