Blocking prostaglandin E2 after trauma attenuates pro-inflammatory cytokines and improves survival.

Abstract

Major injury leads to impaired immune responses and increases the risk of infectious complications. Following trauma, increased prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) levels may be important in immunodysregulation. We hypothesized that blocking PGE2 with NS-398, a selective COX-2 inhibitor, during the first 24 h after injury may modify the immune response and protect the… (More)
