Adrenomedullin binding protein-1 modulates vascular responsiveness to adrenomedullin in late sepsis.

Adrenomedullin (AM), a potent vasodilatory peptide, plays an important role in initiating the hyperdynamic response during the early stage of sepsis. Moreover, the reduced vascular responsiveness to AM appears to be responsible for the transition from the early, hyperdynamic to the late, hypodynamic phase of sepsis. Although the novel specific AM binding… CONTINUE READING
