[The evaluation of tumor necrosis factor-alpha concentration in body fluids in local and systemic endotoxin exposure].

Abstract

Tumor-necrosis factor alpha (TNF) has been shown to have a pivotal role in mediating biological effects of endotoxins. Therefore, TNF measurement in the circulation is thought to be a useful diagnostic and prognostic instrument in patients exposed to endotoxin. However, the character of the TNF response depends on the mode of endotoxin exposure and is… (More)
