Heat shock protein 72 (Hsp72) exhibits a protective role during times of increased risk of pathogenic challenge and/or tissue damage. The aim of the study was to ascertain Hsp72 protective effect differences between animal and human studies in sepsis using a hypothetical "comparative study" model. Forty-one in vivo (56.1%), in vitro (17.1%), or combined(More)
Methods Seventy-eight adults (SS/22; non-infectious SIRS /23; healthy (H)/33) were included in our study. Energy expenditure (EE) of patients was measured with the Gas Module E-COVX. Patients were classified as hypermetabolic, normometabolic, and hypometabolic when the EE were >110%, 90-110% and, < 90% of the predicted basal metabolic rate, respectively.(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine whether the septic profiles of heat shock protein 72, heat shock protein 90α, resistin, adiponectin, oxygen consumption, CO2 production, energy expenditure, and metabolic pattern, along with illness severity, nutritional, and inflammatory indices, differ between adult and pediatric patients compared with systemic inflammatory response(More)
Splenic injury due to blunt abdominal trauma is an emergency condition in pediatrics. We present a case of a 10-year-old girl who presented to the emergency department 12 hours after a fall from height with abdominal pain, vomiting, and left upper quadrant tenderness and was found to have splenic rupture. Because of extensive bleeding and hemodynamic(More)

Methods Seventy-eight adults (SS/22; non-infectious SIRS /23; healthy (H)/33) and sixty-two children (SS/15; noninfectious SIRS /20; healthy (H)/27) were studied. Blood samples obtained on days 1, 3 and 5. Energy expenditure (EE) of patients was measured with the Gas Module E-COVX. HSPs expressions in monocytes (m) or neutrophils (n) were determined using(More)
