A novel adsorbent of circulating bacterial toxins and cytokines: the effect of direct hemoperfusion with CTR column for the treatment of experimental endotoxemia.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The current study examined the ability of a new adsorbent, CTR, to remove enterotoxins, toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 (TSST-1), and cytokines from blood and/or serum in vitro and the effects of the extracorporeal treatment with CTR column on mortality rate and inflammatory responses to endotoxic shock in vivo. DESIGN Laboratory investigation… (More)
