A novel role for programmed cell death receptor ligand 2 in sepsis-induced hepatic dysfunction.
The liver is an organ that, when dysfunctional in a septic patient, is strongly associated with morbidity and mortality. Understanding the pathophysiology of liver failure during sepsis may lead toExpand
Potential of 18F-FDG PET toward personalized radiotherapy or chemoradiotherapy in lung cancer
PurposeWe investigated the metabolic response of lung cancer to radiotherapy or chemoradiotherapy by 18F-FDG PET and its utility in guiding timely supplementary therapy.MethodsGlucose metabolic rateExpand
Group 2 Innate Lymphoid Cells (ILC2s) Are Key Mediators of the Inflammatory Response in Polymicrobial Sepsis.
Sepsis remains a major public health concern, characterized by marked immune dysfunction. Innate lymphoid cells develop from a common lymphoid precursor but have a role in orchestrating inflammationExpand
Overview of the Molecular Pathways and Mediators of Sepsis
Sepsis is a common clinical problem among the critically ill, and it is associated with high morbidity and mortality due to lack of effective therapeutic options. Sepsis results from dysregulation ofExpand
Managing central venous access during a health care crisis
Abstract Introduction During the COVID-19 pandemic, central venous access line teams were implemented at many hospitals throughout the world to provide access for critically ill patients. TheExpand
Program Cell Death Receptor-1-Mediated Invariant Natural Killer T-Cell Control of Peritoneal Macrophage Modulates Survival in Neonatal Sepsis
We have shown that invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells mediate sepsis-induced end-organ changes and immune responses, including macrophage bacterial phagocytosis, a finding regulated by the checkExpand
Global variation in anastomosis and end colostomy formation following left‐sided colorectal resection
End colostomy rates following colorectal resection vary across institutions in high‐income settings, being influenced by patient, disease, surgeon and system factors. This study aimed to assessExpand
Phlegmasia cerulea dolens associated with acute coronavirus disease 2019 pneumonia despite supratherapeutic warfarin anticoagulation
Patients with acute Coronavirus-19 (COVID-19) respiratory infections are associated with concomitant thromboembolic complications and a hypercoagulable state. Although these mechanisms are notExpand
