Bioenergetic failure of human peripheral blood monocytes in patients with septic shock is mediated by reduced F1Fo adenosine-5'-triphosphate synthase activity.


OBJECTIVE Increasing evidence points to the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in the pathogenesis of sepsis.

We aimed to determine the mechanisms involved in… (More)
