β-Glucan Reverses the Epigenetic State of LPS-Induced Immunological Tolerance
Summary Innate immune memory is the phenomenon whereby innate immune cells such as monocytes or macrophages undergo functional reprogramming after exposure to microbial components such as… Expand
Broad defects in the energy metabolism of leukocytes underlie immunoparalysis in sepsis
The acute phase of sepsis is characterized by a strong inflammatory reaction. At later stages in some patients, immunoparalysis may be encountered, which is associated with a poor outcome. By… Expand

RATIONALE Reversal of sepsis-induced immunoparalysis may reduce the incidence of secondary infections and improve outcome. Although IFN-γ and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF)… Expand
Biomarkers associated with delirium in critically ill patients and their relation with long-term subjective cognitive dysfunction; indications for different pathways governing delirium in inflamed…
IntroductionDelirium occurs frequently in critically ill patients and is associated with disease severity and infection. Although several pathways for delirium have been described, biomarkers… Expand

The vagus nerve can limit inflammation via the alpha7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (alpha7nAChR). Selective pharmacological stimulation of the alpha7nAChR may have therapeutic potential for the… Expand
Plasma levels of danger-associated molecular patterns are associated with immune suppression in trauma patients
PurposeDanger-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) released of trauma could contribute to an immune suppressed state that renders patients vulnerable towards nosocomial infections. We investigated… Expand
Enteroendocrine L Cells Sense LPS after Gut Barrier Injury to Enhance GLP-1 Secretion.
Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) is a hormone released from enteroendocrine L cells. Although first described as a glucoregulatory incretin hormone, GLP-1 also suppresses inflammation and promotes… Expand

In hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis of the Dutch type (HCHWA-D), severe cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is associated with an inflammatory reaction. Small heat shock proteins (sHsps)… Expand
Increased vagal tone accounts for the observed immune paralysis in patients with traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability, especially in the younger population. In the acute phase after TBI, patients are more vulnerable to infection, associated with… Expand
Interferon-gamma as adjunctive immunotherapy for invasive fungal infections: a case series
BackgroundInvasive fungal infections are very severe infections associated with high mortality rates, despite the availability of new classes of antifungal agents. Based on pathophysiological… Expand
